Trump acquitted. Burr votes guilty | Eastern North Carolina Now

The National Pulse is reporting:

The vote ended 57 – 43 in the United States Senate following a day of drama surrounding witnesses in the U.S. Capitol, meaning the Democrat House impeachment managers failed in their bid to have the former President stripped of his right to run again in 2024.

An impeachment trial requires a two-thirds vote to pass.

Anti-Trump Republicans such as Richard Burr, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, and Ben Sasse all voted guilty.

One semi-surprise vote to find President Trump guilty was Republican Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, who had hinted at such a change in his thinking earlier this week.

Following on from the morning’s confusion – where Democrats first claimed they wanted to drag the trial on for weeks by calling witnesses – the House impeachment managers quickly changed tactics again and rushed towards a vote on the Senate floor this afternoon.

Sen. Richard Burr has been censured and rebuked by unanimous vote of the NC state GOP central committee for his vote against President Trump on the sham impeachment. Earlier Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana was censured and rebuked by unanimous vote of his state Republican central committee for his vote against Trump. Nebraska and Utah Republican governing bodies are also scheduled to take up censure votes against Senators Mitt Romney and Ben Sasse. Individual county Republican party committees have also censured all four of those senators as well as Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. The grassroots is not happey with these traitors who gave aid and comfort to the enemy.

Knew Burr would vote as he did. I emailed him about his oath to support and defend the Constitution. I even gave him the article and chapter about impeachment of the President and it does not mention impeaching a private citizen. This was his reply:

"Thank you for contacting me with your thoughts regarding impeachment of President Trump. I appreciate hearing from you.

On January, 13, 2021, the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump for the “willful incitement of insurrection.” The Article of Impeachment has been sent to the Senate and the Senate is required to consider the article and its merit. President Trump’s impeachment trial will begin on February 9, 2021. It then takes a two-thirds majority vote in the Senate to convict. I will act, as the Constitution requires, as an impartial juror at the upcoming Senate trial, and I appreciate you taking the time to share your views on the subject with me.

That being said, the President bears responsibility for the violence that took place at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, by promoting unfounded conspiracy theories and refusing to accept the will of American voters. I am pleased that Congress upheld its constitutional duty by certifying the results of the election.

Again, thank you for contacting me. Should you have additional questions or comments, please do not hesitate to let me know or visit my website at

"Tricky Dick" Burr is a corrupt sleaze ball who voted in line with his own interests. Burr wants to cash in as a lobbyist when his term ends, and he was brownnosing the special interests he hopes will hire him by voting against the President. We need to make sure that his replacement in the 2022 primary will not be another despicable swamp rat like Burr and Tillis. Too many of those running would be no different - McCrory, Walker, Holding, etc. We need a tried and true conservative.
