“I solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of (fill in the blank) now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: So help me God.”

This is the oath 100 senators took Feb. 9 at the beginning of former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. How can anyone “do impartial justice” when the jurors are co-conspirators ? Any juror who decided in advance how he/she would vote is not being fair, righteous or moral. They are not honoring the oath they took.

Trump must be held accountable for his actions, even though he is out of office. World War II criminals were followed, found and held accountable years after the war ended.

You must have not listened to the evidence presented over the course of 4 days. The attack was pre-planned, the President offered 10,000 troops days before Jan 6, although Congress and the mayor were warned in advance of planned violence they refused additional security, 2 hours before the rally started the rioters were already gathering at the Capital and it was clearly shown that over the last year violence was advocated and supported by other elected officials but that was 'recognized as free speech and not inciting of violence' Most Americans can see the hypocrisy and this won't be going away anytime soon. Cases are decided on evidence, not emotion.
