Former United States Attorney Preet Bharara asked his 1.2 million Twitter followers a provocative question on the eve of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
With worries that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is presiding over a sham trial, many analysts have suggested that the Senate itself will be on trial.
“Which Senator up this year most deserves to lose?” Bharara, who was fired by Trump, asked.
There are a number of potentially vulnerable Republicans facing voters in 2020, including McConnell himself, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ), Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC), Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
Here are some of the replies:

And don’t forget about McConnell.

Mitch. Graham. Gardner. Cornyn. McSally. Oh, and Susan Collins. So many. Too many.

The removal of Mitch McConnell is probably the single most important step the country can take in restoring actual democracy.

Him and Mitch are the worst for sure.
I'll be voting against Cornyn in TX too.

McConnell, of course. Graham is a CLOSE second!

Graham’s level of hypocrisy is unmatched but McConnell’s capacity to do more damage is greater
