It’s difficult to say Trump is really on trial when the outcome as to Trump is already known. It is, instead, the Republican party that is on trial. They are demonstrating to the American people just how overwhelming a case of Trump’s unfitness for office they are willing to ignore.
With every day, the evidence piles up. Really, all it ought to take is watching a video like this all the way through.
Here is Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD)'s full 13-minute video montage of the Capitol insurrection.https://t.co/1pQtNtMHmd

But we have also seen evidence of Trump denigrating Pence during the riot, and tweeting out “this is what you get when you steal an election” style tweets. Of his involvement in the planning process for January 6. On and on and on. And the GOP could not care less.
This does not reflect well on them, and they ought to pay a price. I suspect they will.
