Senate Republicans will be haunted by their party-line vote against witnesses and documents after opening arguments in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, according to one legal expert closely following the proceedings.

Vermont Law School Prof. Jennifer Taub was more than 100 tweets into her coverage of the Senate trial when, on a party-line vote, the U.S. Senate voted 53 – 47 against an amendment by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to obtain documents and witnesses.

“Disgusted. I am disgusted,” Taub posted on Twitter.

“This hit me harder than I thought it would,” Taub wrote.

“Every. Single. Republican in the Senate has failed us,” she charged, using punctuation for emphasis.

“53 people put party over country. Shame on them forever,” Taub charged. “Trump collaborators. Disgusting.”

She continued: "So what happens is, it's like if you align yourself with Donald Trump, you're a racist."

President Donald Trump's supposed "new tone," despite what some reporters claimed after his newly-resuscitated coronavirus press briefing, does not exist. On Thursday the embattled president launched a massive rapid-fire retweeting campaign, posting tweet after tweet after tweet of other people's attacks on the left and on presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

In 59 minutes Trump tweeted or retweeted 40 times, many of all the tweets baseless attacks on Biden and progressive policies.

What stands out is the President, supported by the entire machinery of the United States of America's federal government, and buoyed by hundreds of millions in campaign cash, had no original thoughts of his own to share with the American voters.

President Donald Trump left the White House during the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday to attend an Independence Day event in South Dakota.

Trump was told not to attend but did so anyway.

“Trump coming here is a safety concern not just for my people inside and outside the reservation, but for people in the Great Plains. We have such limited resources in Black Hills, and we’re already seeing infections rising,” the Oglala Sioux president, Julian Bear Runner, told the Guardian. “It’s going to cause an uproar if he comes here. People are going to want to exercise their first amendment rights to protest and we do not want to see anyone get hurt or the lands be destroyed."
