    The revelation I want to hear about is that those behind all this scheming are being held accountable.

      BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA . . . snicker . . . snort . . .

      Sorry, that's a good one. Nobody has been held accountable to this point. Why in the hell do you think anyone involved in this attempted coup will be held accountable now. After all the outraged cries of, "This wasn't a fair trial!!!!l", "It's all a cover-up!!!", WAAAHH!!! the democrats will simply shrug and start scheming on their next plan to remove Pres. Trump. But will they actually be held accountable. Nope. Not in the least.

No failure theater (yet) NO MORE WITNESSES!
Ms Romney voted aye

2smartforlibs | January 31, 2020 at 5:52 pm

Any other vote would have been historic. of the 3 times this has happened NO new witnesses have been called by the Senate.

Collins ‘n’ Romney – are the most reliable members of the Democrat Party.

Good, hopefully the rest of this farce will be brought to an end quickly.

Fails 49-51.
Ayes go first,

Romney needs to be pushed to the most boring, meaningless committee, and shunned by all Republicans. He can have his “cocktail” parties with Collins.
Neither should get any support whatsoever from the RNC.
Captain Special Underpants is worse than a Democrat. The only good thing about him is he proved he can’t get support from real Republicans.

    Romney isn’t up again for 5 years, and IMO he won’t be running for re-election, he’ll be running for president.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to oldgoat36. | February 1, 2020 at 9:51 am

    Nope. Collins and Romney have proven to be too unreliable for the Republican party. They need to be stripped of all their committee assignments and very publicly put on the back bench. And all support from the Republican party, financially and otherwise, needs to be held back.

    The Republican party cannot and should not continue to support those that don’t support the Republican party. So Collins and Romney need to go.

Trump needs to invite Romney to the Oval Office, quietly sit behind the Resolute Desk, and tell him, like Hillary, he will never be President.

i looked at ballotpedia and they did not list a primary challenger for Collins, somebody from the republican party needs to primary her.

    There is no one willing to waste their money trying to take Collin’s seat. It appears that in Maine, it’s either Collins or a Democrat.

It looks like the ‘Kavanaugh Plan’ stays alive. The Democrats will not allow a vote to acquit until next Wednesday. Since the state of the union is on Tuesday, we’re just witnessing another cheap shot by the Democrats.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to stablesort. | February 1, 2020 at 10:05 am

    There is no requirement that Pres. Trump actually read it to them. So he should simply decline to enter House and send Pelosi a copy of his SOTU with a request that she read it to congress and be done with it. Democrats want to snub the president, the president should snub them.

And now the endless yelping about there being a “cover up”.

Romney, Murkowski and Collins should be reprimanded and punished by Mitchell McConnell and members of the republican party.

They routinely create party disunity and by doing so lend aid and comfort to democrats and the media.

All three must be bounced from committee chairs/seats. Strip them of all perks. They can sit in their damn offices and sharpen pencils eight hours a day for all I care.

McConnell shall reduce Romney and Collins’ office staffing funds to zero and bounce both into the smallest and most inconvenient congressional senate office rooms possible.

Cut Collins some slack. She was able to do the right thing on the Kavanaugh nomination.

But Mitt Romney is a major disappointment. I thought more of him. I didn’t realize that he was a smaller man than a skeeter’s tweeter. (Borrowed that phrase from an old Tina Turner song).

    I could not agree with you more about Collins.

    Romney, however, couldn’t manage to put the will of his constituents above his desire for revenge on Trump. Romney is going to spend the rest of his weak, useless, and short career paying for today’s vote.

      alaskabob in reply to Leslie Eastman. | January 31, 2020 at 8:46 pm

      What he and Collins did was give the Dems “bipartisan” support. The real surprise (pending what was promised quid pro quo) was Murkowski. The question there is … good for her or good for Alaska? Not holding my breathe… frosty as it is.

      We can only hope, but Republicans generally don’t play the revenge game well.

      No he won't. Because McConnell and the rest of the Republican party don't have the political will or the balls to do anything about traitors like Romney. Or Murkowski. Or Collins. They'll just let the disunity and nonsene these three pull happen over and over again. But Republican leadership actually doing something about it? Nah, they're too worried about their images to discipline their members.

        With a majority as small as it is, they can’t afford to do anything about these senators. The last thing we need is for them to decide that they don’t need this and give Schumer the majority.

I hope the Senate finds and declares the House sent over two un-Constitutional, non-Article findings. Don’t even call them Articles, they are not. This doesn’t even require an acquittal since the Constitution was not followed. The democrats took their best shot. It not only failed miserably, it’s going to haunt them for a long time.

The cat’s out of the bag now though.

It has been made clear the House can run the same completely one-sided Impeachment and then if they have the votes in the Seante conduct the whole investigation and witness part of the trial over in the Senate.

Future Democrats will especially if they gain the votes even in the Senate run a complete s—show of Impeachment that with the help of teh Media that will look like a nightmare.

Collins is in a tight race, and the Republicans could afford to allow her to deviate. If necessary, I like to believe that she would have stepped up as she did for Kavanaugh. Mitt, on the other hand…. Mitt went walk-about and should be punished.
