Assuming that a cowed GOP Senate acquits POTUS* in an impeachment trial, the entirety of the GOP’s candidates must bear that responsibility at the polls in 2020.
OJ, Trump: same struggle? Joy Reid says it would be "jury nullification" if Senate failed to convict and remove @realDonaldTrump.#tcot@JoyAnnReid#impeachment@amJoyshow@glennkirschner2 pic.twitter.com/gRuodPnzMG

What to do about a senator who neglects his obligations to attend briefings, who perpetuates propaganda from an adversary and who deliberately misleads the public by conflating meddling/interference by an adversary and public criticism of a candidate? https://t.co/6amrXl9Jq4

Trial watchers, sociologists and even FX’s show “People v OJ Simpson” have argued that the jurors in O.J. Simpson’s murder case acquitted him as payback for the Rodney King beating. And in ESPN’s new event series, “O.J.: Made in America,” one juror finally comes out and says it.
In an excerpt aired on public radio show “Fresh Air” this week, juror Carrie Bess, who is now in her 70s, is asked whether “there are members of the jury that voted to acquit OJ because of Rodney King.”
“Yes,” she says simply. Later she says that she was one of them.
Only in the wack notion that the majority population are victims will an OJ media frame work, but it could in the land of man-babies.
