It is a sad day for America. Once again, Mitch McConnell and Republican Senators put party over country, voting to acquit Donald Trump in his impeachment trial. It was a shameful display of partisanship in the aftermath of one of the worst attacks on our democracy since our nation's founding. Donald Trump fomented the violence that desecrated the halls of Congress, injured dozens, and resulted in the tragic death of five Americans. The vote today will only encourage more attacks and incitement to violence in years to come. Shame on all of those who voted to let Trump off the hook. Their cowardice and hypocrisy is unparalleled. *NM*
