Impeachment is historical. The subsequent Senate Trial is historical. Legacies are being shaped.
The Washington Post: Being a Republican during the Trump presidency demands much. He is quick to anger at any Republican who strays from absolute loyalty and at times has sought to punish those who have.
Few have had the wherewithal to question him, and they have generally paid a price. Their examples have shaped the behavior of others in the party.
That’s a major difference between this impeachment proceeding and the one two decades ago involving President Bill Clinton. That Senate trial ended in an acquittal, largely on party lines. But the year-long episode also included condemnations of the president’s behavior by members of his own party, both what he did and that he lied about it.
If Clinton’s Democratic colleagues did not believe his conduct ultimately warranted removal from office, they nonetheless found it worthy of rebuke. That is one way to measure how those in the president’s party handle the allegations contained in the two articles of impeachment against Trump and ultimately the meaning of “impartial justice” as defined by each individual senator.
