o save time, energy, etc. just call the trial to order and then have the vote. 1-5 senators with open minds who might weigh their decision on the evidence isn't worth having this thing drag out. 50-50, 55-45 or something in-between. Same results.
I think that presenting the evidence, ala Reality TV, will give a good deal more flavor and texture to the long game..
I agree, plus the damning evidence just may cause a few of the 95 to change their minds.
Then, go after all of the Senators and Representatives that fomented insurrection.
The DC AG has already started a grand jury. The insurrection is not going away as much as the GOP wants it to.
