They won't get 17 Republicon senators to vote to convict.

That's a really heavy lift, and y'all, let's get real, it ain't gonna happen. However, here is what I'm hoping for. I'm hoping the House impeachment managers will make a really compelling case, such a powerful case that it will be really difficult for those Republicon senators to justify their votes for acquittal. They'll do it anyway, of course. They'll make all kinds of excuses and rationalizations and twist themselves into every imaginable logical pretzel, but they'll do it, and that's what I want them to HAVE to do. I want the House managers to make such a compelling case that the Republicon senators will not be able to justify their votes to acquit. And then, I want those impossible-to-justify votes to come back to haunt them.

2. So? It's the right thing to do.

Let them explain to their voters why they let this mob boss loose on this country.

4. That's just the point I was trying to make.

Did you think I was saying something else?

8. I believe that's the strategy here.

Make them pay and pay and pay in the court of public opinion.

9. Some of the MSNBC pundits say it is going to be a powerful, dramatic case presentation.

The GOP will go for process complaints, but the content is going to be so powerful, that defense will fall flat.

Yes I agree, I think the GOP members are going to look bad when they vote to acquit.

10. I have no doubt, the case will be strong & I have no doubt the Q party will still acquit.

11. Of course not. A Qpublican Senate body will never do what is right for our country,

or anything else in this universe. If the Qpublican Senators had their way, they would immediately appoint Trump dictator for life.

As a body, they have no honor, no integrity, and they despise democracy.
