This is really sad, not because Trump stays in office, but for what it says about the integrity of the politicians. Only two Republicans voted in favour of calling new witnesses, which is a denial of justice. All but one Republican voted not guilty, and every single Democrat voted guilty. Senators voted entirely on party lines: to Hell with justice and impartiality, let's just make sure our team wins.

We in the UK can't crow about it either; we see plenty of blind partisanship in Parliament, and of course in the electorate. It undermines democracy.
