No words strong enough

At this point, there are no words strong enough.

Donald Trump attempted to overturn the election, and overthrow our democracy. His guilt is clear. And he is an ongoing threat to our democracy.

And yet … and yet … forty-three Republican senators, led by our own Mitch McConnell and egged on by our own Rand Paul, voted to acquit.

They chose Trump over our democracy. They chose Trump over the rule of law. They chose Trump over the lives of their fellow senators.

No matter what else happens in the future, their names will forever be stained by their vote today.

There are truly no words strong enough for the shame they have brought on themselves, our state, and our nation.

No words strong enough.
