As impeachment proceedings are set to begin it seems that even Democrats know what the outcome will be and have even acknowledged the whole process is unconstitutional. In a shocking admission, Democrat Senator Chris Murphy said that he can see Rand Paul’s point that holding an impeachment trial does not align with our constitution. Murphy is in favor of the impeachment trial and said Trump must be held accountable.
Paul held an early vote which required Senators to vote if the impeachment trial is constitutional since Trump is no longer in office, ultimately 45 Republicans voted against the trial which gave a clear indication that the trial will end in an acquittal.

Fox News reports:
“I admit this is of course a matter of first impression and so I don’t think the case that Senator Paul is making is a ridiculous one,” he said.
“They know that this has no chance of winning. There’s no chance of the president actually being convicted here,” Trump 2020 senior adviser Jason Miller said on Fox News Sunday. “This is designed to try to implement political pain, so to speak, over the course of a week, maybe a week and a half, and then they’re going to move on. They’re not even taking this seriously.”
Graham also said that he does not endorse the events of Jan. 6 and didn’t walk back his previous statements holding Trump partially responsible for the attack on the Capitol. But Graham said he does not believe Trump actually committed a crime, and that the trial itself should not be moving forward.
“It’s not a crime. The House is impeaching him under the grounds that his speech created a riot,” Graham said. “If you believe he committed a crime, he can be prosecuted like any other citizen. Impeachment is a political process. We’ve never impeached a president once they’re out of office.”
Republicans in the House and Senate have called the trial a farce and have accused Democrats of moving forward with the sham impeachment trial simply to score political points and attempt to prevent Trump from running for office again.
