The US Senate’s acquittal of former President Donald Trump shows his permanent power over the Republican Party. Seven Republicans joined 50 Democrats to condemn him – short of the necessary 67 culpable votes. Ten House Republicans, including Jaime Herrera Beutler, voted to prosecute him in January.
After a trial that undisputedly proved to endanger his vice chairman, law makers and police officers, Trump will be remembered as a leader who abused his power as a disgraceful man who fled convictions on technicalities. Four years without impunity he abused the presidency office and made the founders’ insistence on co-equal government branches look like a farce.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said he was proud Sunday to have voted against Donald Trump by Republicans. He said that he did the same thing and praised those who went against his party. Hogan says that in the next few years the GOP will have “real battle for the soul of the Republican Party over the next couple of years”
