In a stunning decision to do what they have always done, Democrats cave to Republicans despite getting the votes to call witnesses.

Even when we win, we lose. I'm so done with this party.

It wouldn’t have mattered. Everyone knows what happened and witnesses weren’t going to change anything.


Nevertheless, the future Chinese historians poring over the documentation of our downfall as they celebrate their takeover, would have appreciated reading that testimony.


1. You don't give up just because you think it won't happen
2. Even if the vote was a foregone conclusion - you make it as politically costly as possible. Imagine midterms having footage of witness after witness condemning the president lined up against the person who voted not guilty. Garbage short term and garbage long term decision by Dems


Dragging out impeachment would’ve been more costly for Dems. With McConnell not backing impeachment, countless witnesses could not have changed his mind. The GOP will fall in line with McConnell. Spending too much time on a trial where the outcome won’t change hampers the Senate’s ability to push nominees through quickly and pass legislation. Biden’s priorities would be bogged down by impeachment and the GOP could easily paint the Dem’s as having done nothing for a few months during the 2022 midterms.

Pushing through COVID stimulus, infrastructure and immigration in the first 100 days will give Democrats the edge and they can still use this failed conviction to show the GOP allowed an insurrection to go unpunished

President’s first 100 days are a precious honeymoon period to actually get stuff done before the public starts to dislike the new president. Can’t waste it trying to politically embarrass trump despite a foregone vote conclusion. Anyone who still doesn’t think trump is guilty literally never will



It wouldn’t have mattered, but what bothered me was the political malpractice and cowardice. Democrats just refuse to fight and cannot understand when they have the upper hand.


@SC OP, I totally understand your frustration 😣 But like PwC1 mentioned, it wouldn’t have changed anything plus it would have help up the Senate’s ability to move on Covid relief and confirming the rest of Biden‘s cabinet.

Actually Republicans caved to Trump and didn’t vote to impeach

So he intentionally incurred losses so that he can claim NOL for tax purposes. What a frikkin Einstein of a president we got? Republicans should admit that they put an idiot for president.

Conservativism is just Socialism for the Rich


Bob Mueller said you can't indict a sitting president. So here's the question; will the black SUVs come screeching out on the white house lawn before he even gets to the helicopter? Or will they be waiting for him when he lands in Florida?

To any macroeconomists out there -

I’m on the fence on voting for Biden. His new corporate tax structure raises corporate taxes from 21 - 28%. What downstream effects will we see happen to US corporations?


Imagine seeing all these far right psycho militias and terrorists and insurrections and being like “the problem with this country is the left”


America showing its true colors...the hatred is spewing and can no longer be concealed...occupying the US Capital is an act of War..this is treason!


Are all these conservatives seriously suggesting that cops routinely stop in progress crimes or that somehow their presence automatically stops?

Because neither of those things are true.


Are more people killed in mass school
Shootings in the US or by illegal immigrants every year? Both seem rare but each gets one side up in hysteria while other ignores

These riots are all cool..until your local store is trashed, your car window smashed/set on fire and your family member becomes unemployed.
