Former Clinton official lays out roadmap for making Trump accountable for the Capitol riot.

The United States Senate is an inadequate forum to hold Donald Trump accountable, but he can still face justice, former White House press secretary Joe Lockhart argued on Saturday.]

"For everyone disappointed by the lack of witnesses, the truth is going to come out. Our justice system will get to the bottom of this and those who helped incite the insurrection will be investigated, prosecuted and convicted. And juries will pass judgement, not old R Senators," he wrote.

"For me, I'd rather have Trump in a real courtroom with a real judge and real jurors facing time in prison for what he did. Calling witnesses in the Senate would not bring justice because the Republican party is so morally bankrupt there is no justice there. See [you] in court Trump," he explained.

"I understand activists being upset and disappointed with Dems decision, but reporters shouldn't be tweeting their shock and disappointment. Stick to covering the news, not making it," he argued after Democrats refused to call witnesses.

1. Agreed. We've known the trumpers could get enough votes to beat the Senate easy bar.

Big picture. The indictments and the courts next.

Keep on eroding trump support.
