The Republicans who voted for conviction were:
the whole outcome was pre ordained. Democrats knew this. Long term, this will work to our advantage.
feeling their best way to serve their country was to be one of those opposing what's happening from within and awaiting the time when they could bring their party back from the extremism and corruption that've taken it over.
One of my favorite conservatives, as they go, speaking to principle, not angry partisan bigotry.
In the Senate? Nope. And we knew that going in.
There are good republicans. Always were.
