“In a scene reminiscent of just a year ago — Trump is the first president twice impeached — the lead House prosecutor, Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, stood before the Senate to read the House resolution charging ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ But Republican denunciations of Trump have cooled since the Jan. 6 riot. Instead Republicans are presenting a tangle of legal arguments against the legitimacy of the trial and questioning whether Trump’s repeated demands to overturn Joe Biden’s election really amounted to incitement.” Trump impeachment goes to Senate, testing his sway over GOP. If Trump is not convicted by the Senate, sedition should be erased from federal law; and it can be just another affront moved from the felony column to the “norm breaking” column.
