Republicans were unable to move straight to a final vote on acquitting Donald Trump, but it is now slated for Wednesday.
“While the final decision on the president will come on Wednesday, the verdict on the United States Senate is in and the United States Senate is guilty, guilty of dereliction of its constitutional duty by failing to hold a fair trial.” -Sen @VanHollenForMD to us just now.

The final vote on impeachment will be Wednesday, but the verdict on the Senate’s conduct is already in: GUILTY of total dereliction of constitutional duty for failure to hold a fair trial. Remember: No witnesses = sham trial = mistrial = no legitimate outcome = no real acquittal.
