The disgusting hypocrisy of the retiring GOP senators.

There is going to be almost a record number of retiring senators in coming 2-4 years, but most will still vote not guilty. They won't vote that way because they believe he is innocent. They will retire very financially comfortable, they have probably amassed quite a bit of money semi-legally. But the truth is even though they know know a not guilty verdict might harm our republic, they don't want to be ostracized by people who also don't particularly love Trump. They can retire and enjoy their grandchildren and live a good life, but they want to still be on the Republican gravy train - corporate boards, think tanks, the respect that is given an elder statesman. They want to feel relevant. In years to come they may be in history books as complicit scum politicians, but they want to feel important in their remaining years. They want to have all the perks and respect of the scum of the earth.
