Is there a chance the Senate might censure Trump?

I don't think Trump will let Republicans vote for censure?

Joe Manchin suggested censure as sort of a compromise to show Trump that he was not above the law and it would be a way to hold him accountable. But he doesn't seem to be getting much support for his idea?

In the end, a censure vote would make the impeachment by the House look "legitimate" and the Repubs will not let that happen.

6. I don't think so. They acquit and it is over unless house Dems want to restart the process

lord knows, it isn't hard to find even more evidence.

8. Manchin looking for an escape hatch?

He just got re-elected and won't have to face the voters until 2024 and Trump will be on his way out anyway. He should be the least concerned about voting to acquit IMHO. But then again he's from Trumpsville

9. Didn't realize that he's safe for right now,

but after reading that, it does make you wonder if he's running interference for some R?

Get Dem support for a censure, get the R's behind it to save face and not have to fully defend their votes.

Bingo, a bi-partisan solution.

10. Moscow mitch has this whole thing about 24hours from being sewn up tight.

You think he or any of his lock step piss ants will throw you a bone now?

WHY?

It should be clear to all of us after this sham of a trial that the republicans only strategy from here on out is scorched earth.

Thatís the only way to fight back now.
