Prediction: Most Senate Republicans will vote Present in the impeachment trial

Or they will refuse to vote at all. What I think is happening with these claims that the impeachment trial is unconstitutional now that Trump is out of office is that the GOP is that the Republicans in the Senate are attempting to find a way so they don't have to vote to acquit or convinct. Instead they are trying to claim the trial is something that isn't allowed and therefore they will "protest" by voting Present or not voting at all. That way they don't have to go on the record either way. They are trying to find a spineless 3rd option where they don't have to officially condone or condemn Trump.

While I'm sure at least a few Republican senators will vote to convinct, most will not vote either way over bogus claims that the process is unconstitutional and therefore they can't render judgement either way.

Who will be the cabinet secretaries after tomorrow?

I guess I have a bit of a blind spot in my knowledge of presidential transitions. Im pretty sure none of Bidens cabinet picks will be approved by the Senate in the next 14 hours or so. In that case, who's running the various departments? I can't imagine Biden would want all of Trump's appointees like Mnuchin and Pompeo to hang around, so who will be in Bidens cabinet before his picks are confirmed by the Senate?

What do we make of McConnell right now?

There have been a lot of rumors but not much in the way of official news on what McConnell is up to right now. On the one hand, he's clearly a lying slime ball. But on the other I genuinely believe he hates Trump and knows Trump tried to have him killed by his MAGA terrorist attack on the Capitol.

Now we have reports that McConnell is happy Trump got impeached and wants to purge the party of Trumpism. However, he also won't fast track the impeachment trial.

So what's Mcconnell up fo right now?

Officer Brian D. Sicknick Memorial Fund

I came across the Go Fund Me page for Officer Brian D. Sicknick's Memorial. He is the officer who was killed by MAGA terrorists while defending the Capitol. Not sure if it's been posted here already but it seems like a worthwhile cause.


Is it safe to say Mike Pence is more worried about running in 2024 than anything else?

I mean it seems very likely that the MAGA Insurrection Mob was planning on murdering Senators, House Members, and even Pence but Pence still seems more concerned about losing those people as voters for his 2024 run than anything else. Is it safe to say that Pence's current strategy is to win over the people that were trying to potentially assassinate him and overthrow the government than actually dealing with the failed coup?

Vanity Fair Reporter: Lindsay Graham has warned Trump enough GOP senators will vote to convinct

Source: Lindsey Graham told Trump yesterday that there are enough GOP votes in Senate to remove him from office unless he conceded election and denounce riot.


Prediction: Trump will resign

Here's my total speculation about what is happening behind the scenes. I think Pence has threatened Trump with the 25th amendment but won't use it yet because he wants Trump to resign. I think in exchange for resigning and going dark, he will get a full pardon from Pence. They will use the excuse that during the last 8 weeks Trump had a nervous breakdown and that will give Republicans cover to say Trump was in control before the election but became unstable after the election, therefore they can wash their hands of what happened yesterday and the build up to it.

Meanwhile, the Democrats are (metaphorically) mobilizing everything they got to scare Trump as a backup. Basically saying that they likely have the votes to convict and Pence may not be able to pardon Trump if the senate convicts. Or something, I don't know, I'm not a lawyer. Anyway, Pence will give Trump a very short amount of time to before invoking the 25th. Basically before the Dems have time to potentially rip him out of office (metaphorically and legally).

Or maybe not, what do I know?


We start referring to Trump as "The Half Day Dictator". We need to have a nickname that tags him as the insane despot that he is but also how pathetic the while thing was.

I'm willing to forgive and forget

I'm willing to forgive and forget for most of these Republicans if they force Trump out and do everything needed to root out white supremacists and significantly tone down rhetoric. This shit needs to be shut down now. Maybe not popular opinion but we can't take revenge om establishment Republicans
