So many heartfelt thank-yous are pouring in to Rep. Raskin

A sampling:

Re. witnesses, Raskin said McConnell's statement shows they wouldn't have made a difference

Since McConnell had decided the case on jurisdictional grounds (the January exception), Raskin said we could have produced thousands of witnesses and it wouldnít have had an impact on his vote to acquit.

He seemed as at peace with the outcome as one could expect. I hope Iím right about that because he left it all on the field as did the whole impeachment team.

Also, if Raskin is reading this correctly, as Iím sure he is. Trump and his defense team made a huge unforced error by insulting the intelligence of the rioters, many of whom are already feeling left high-and-dry by him:

Getting back to the jurisdictional issue, if the facts of the case were basically irrelevant, why burn a bridge to score a dubious evidentiary point? The constitutional vote on Tuesday should have told Team Trump they didnít need to go there.

Mitch now self-identifying with the concept of a limited tool

So why didn't you fucking convict? Weasel Mitch trying to wiggle out on the term "incitement"?

Otherwise, he sounds like a member of the House impeachment team.

So much for the law-and-order party

Trump pointed a mob at the Capitol. Result: One cop killed, two subsequent suicides, 140 injured, including some maimed. Zero accountability from the vast majority of Senate Republicans.

I trust Democrats will adjust their messaging accordingly.

I have seen the future, and it's Raskin, Neguse, Swalwell, Plaskett and Castro

The sooner this generation of Democrats is running things, the better. Donít make them wait in line for 20 years. The future is now.

Raskin's closing words: These are the times that try men's and women's souls

"There cannot be a principled Republican Party that continues to pledge allegiance to Donald Trump."

Mark Warner to Nicole Wallace just now.
