It’s Been One Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week For The Democratic Party; 7 Republican Senators Who Voted to Convict Trump Face Backlash From Within Party, and related stories

It’s Been One Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week For The Democratic Party:
We witnessed five catastrophes worsen for Democrats, all in the course of one week.
It has been one tough week for the left.
Impeachment for political theatre was squashed, the Never Trump Lincoln Project further imploded when it was reported its leaders knew about the sexual harassment allegations against co-founder John Weaver, and the petition to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom D-Calif. reached 1.5 million signatures to likely trigger a special election.
The Donald Trump Charlottesville rhetoric lie was debunked again, and now, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y. is facing bipartisan flack from lawmakers after a Freedom of Information Request (FOIA) request showed as many as 9,000 COVID-19 infected patients were sent to nursing homes under his directive, resulting in one of the nation’s worst COVID scenarios.
Trump Gets Acquitted Again
On Saturday, former President Donald Trump was acquitted in impeachment proceedings for the second time in two years, 57-43 in the Senate. It was the outcome anyone practical knew was coming for weeks—and one that only adds fuel to the left’s endless and compulsive disdain for the 45th president.
While seven Republicans and two independents voted to impeach Trump with the Democrats, they still ended up 10 votes short to achieve the grand number of 67.
Those in favor of impeachment tried to push the unsubstantiated narrative that Trump incited the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6, regardless of the fact that The New York Times documented people were already rioting 20 minutes before his speech even began. --->READ LOTS MORE HERE

7 Republican Senators Who Voted to Convict Trump Face Backlash From Within Party:
The seven Republican senators who called former President Donald Trump guilty of inciting an insurrection are already facing backlash from within the GOP, where Trump remains a popular figure.
The Louisiana GOP’s Executive Committee unanimously voted to censure Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) over his vote, the party said in a brief statement.
The state party had said earlier this week that it was “profoundly disappointed” when Cassidy sided with five other Republicans and all Democrats in the upper chamber to declare the trial constitutional.
Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), another guilty vote, was condemned by the North Carolina Republican Party.
“North Carolina Republicans sent Senator Burr to the United States Senate to uphold the Constitution and his vote today to convict in a trial that he declared unconstitutional is shocking and disappointing,” North Carolina GOP Chairman Michael Whatley said in a statement. --->READ MORE HERE
