Watching Congress debate the articles of impeachment has embarrassed me as I watch all the members of my party, the so-called Republicans (now Trumpublicans) make a spectacle of themselves and try to divert attention from the real issue, which was that Trump abused his power of the presidency by trying to extort or bribe a foreign country to dig up dirt on his political rival by withholding badly needed aid and again invite foreign interference in our elections and then obstruct Congress by refusing to provide witnesses and documents.

They have all become mini-Trumps by using his tactics and focusing on the Bidens, who have been found to have done no wrong. In fact, this has become my worst nightmare: Not only do we have a reckless sociopath in the White House, we have a bunch of power-hungry representatives doing all they can to retain their power at the expense of violating their oaths of office by trampling all over the Constitution.

I wonder how they will feel in a few years when they are on the wrong side of history and will have to explain it to their posterity.
