Regarding “Trump looks to reassert himself after impeachment acquittal” (Feb. 15): For many millions of us, the decision to acquit Donald Trump was a disappointment. The general consensus is that, if the ballot had been a secret ballot, there would have been more Republicans voting to convict. This just further verifies what cowards most of the Republican senators are. Truly pathetic.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., voted in 1999 to convict Bill Clinton for lying about a sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky, but he voted to acquit Donald Trump for instigating a violent insurrection to overthrow the results of the election. Try to figure that out. Hopefully, in the mid-term elections in 2022, voters will remember the Republicans’ absolute cowardice and the traitorous behavior they endorsed.
