How many Democrats actually thought they would get 67 votes to convict??

Very few, in my opinion.

Republicans used to be the law and order Party, but they seem to be willing to overlook law and order if the crime is committed against Democrats?

Democrats had no choice but to impeach Donald Trump. It was not enough when he took funds appropriated for the Defense Dept and spent them on a wall. But when he brazenly solicited help from a foreign government against the Democrats, they had to hold him accountable.

By the way, the excerpt from Bolton's book said he was looking for help from Ukraine on the "Democrats". It didn't say just Joe Biden. It seemed to be much more inclusive.

Still, few expected the numbers to convict in the Senate. Although they did expect the Senate to request to hear from witnesses and to ask for documents, but that did not happen. Republicans will have to explain that right thru the next election, in my opinion. There are many questions still out there.

There are those that say it gave Donald Trump the free rein to do whatever he wants. He may believe that?

But, he should know that if the Democrats in the House see obvious law-breaking, they will not stand by and do nothing. They will hold him accountable, regardless of what the Senate might do. It would be nice to have some Republicans join the Democrats, but it is not a necessity for impeachment.

He has been put on notice. It is not that you have been acquitted and you can do anything that you want. Rather, it is, don't let it happen again. People are watching.

Democrats will continue to do their job.

2. Laws can't only be for democratic lawmakers and presidents.

3. Nope, for me it was to stand for the truth and to expose the senators for this election.
