The reason for this Trump speech is so hollow.
Hes thanking every person who helped him in his impeachment acquittal, nothing more. Hes praising each one individually for the record. I wonder if these public accolades are code for others to offer them certain protections, if needed, in the future.
Especially on top of his attack on Mitt Romney yesterday. His team put together that attack ad very quickly. The thing is, if they all voted to convict him, they would have been protected by the "pack". He couldn't attack all of them at once.
I honor Senator Romney's stance. I don't like his policies, but if he hadn't allowed himself to be pulled so far to the right by the Republican party in 2012, he might have won.
