EBarnacle BS: Impeachment 'noose' (88* d) RE: BS: Impeachment 'noose' 22 Jan 20


The purpose of bringing all of the motions to amend yesterday [until 2 this morning was not to win the votes on the items. It was to get the Republicans on the record as opposing a real trial. The only one who broke with the majority even once was Collins. The decisions were a foregone conclusion.

Roberts came across well last night but only broke with his largely ceremonial role when he admonished both sides for calling each other liars rather than using pussy foot language such as "My worthy opponent is truly mistaken about the facts, which are . . ." His statement essentially said "This is the Senate in which a certain standard of decorum is expected."
