I am hoping that the United States Senate will do their job and participate appropriately in the current impeachment trial of Trump.
If not, they are complicit in ignoring the Constitution and their duty to it and to the people of this country and making irrelevant the idea of checks and balance.
I tried today to contact Senator Cornyn to request that he do his job that we elected him to do and found that no one is answering his phone in Austin, the voice mailbox has not been setup for that phone and no one was answering his phone in Washington D.C.
This is not how a democracy is supposed to work. If members of the Republican Party continue to call this a sham, etc. then they are contributing to Trump’s destruction of decency and allowing our country to become more like a third world dictatorship than an educated, intelligent, fair democracy.
