We’ll know soon whether there will even be a Senate trial. But until then, so much that is idiotic becomes normalized.
First, Trump said he wanted a trial in the Senate.
Then, he said he wanted to hear from witnesses.
Now, he wants the case dismissed — without either.
The President is afraid of hearing from witnesses, but the Senate should not be.
The American people deserve a fair trial. https://t.co/lGN0mEdsZU

Rudy Giuliani: "Historically, this impeachment will not be called an impeachment. I believe it will be called an illegal coup… There's never been a partisan impeachment. There's never been an impeachment based on something that isn't a crime." pic.twitter.com/jIPR0DMfOw

We are reminded of the Bret Kavanaugh vote:
All it takes is 51 senators to make the rules for an impeachment trial. Two more Republicans come out for a fair trial and @senatemajldr can forget about his kangaroo court plan.
