The US Senate, often called the greatest legislative body in the world, and based on the concept of the Roman Senate, is clearly, on trial.
It has had a grand total of 1,984 members since March 4, 1789, and at least a few hundred have been major players in US History.
It has also had its scoundrels and low lifes, but it has always played an important role in US history.
Courage and principle has often governed what happened, while other times, pure dirty politics has ruled the day, such as right now, as Senator Mitch McConnell, the Majority Leader, is doing everything he can to deny the American people a fair impeachment trial of Donald Trump.
The trial, sadly, may be a sham, but the Republican Party will pay for it with a loss of control of the Senate, and the defeat of scoundrels such as McConnell and Lindsey Graham.
History is waiting, and will not be kind to any US Senator who does not promote a fair trial!
