So the trial needs 67% of the senate to agree he broke the law. Will that many republicans go against him?

Never. They've literally said that they aren't impartial jurors and thus promised to violate their oaths.

Some say that if the vote is secret, that Trump is strawberry floated, but I don't see them making the vote secret.

In something like this then the vote should absolutely be secret. Politics is a disgrace in times like this when people vote along party lines and not for what they truly believe.

The amount of kompromat on the Republican Party will probably ensure that they never get a secret vote.

It's amazing that the republicans can so openly say they're not doing their job by being impartial and nothing can be done. That should be gross misconduct with all the consequences that normally brings.

Aren't quite a few senators up for re-election soon, some of which in quite contested states, and therefore they won't want to annoy their Republican voter base. So they are probably going to tow the party line regardless of their own personal opinion.

Likewise, if Trump was extremely toxic, than rather than do what they think is right, they'd probably want to wash their hands of him in order to stand a chance of re-election.

Both are hardly great if you're trying to get a fair trial going. It should absolutely be secret.

While it will go nowhere in the Senate, at least Trump is now an impeached President. :toot:

This is why politicians should have no place in courts.

Watch as the Tory government try to reform the Supreme Court so that they can pick judges.

I loved her school teacher death stare at anyone who dared to cheer.
