The United States Senate has decayed into something fowl-smelling.
Trump and his Republican sycophants are more than a blemish on the reputation of the United States of America. They are a stain that will not be washed away quickly.
History will judge the USA harshly during the Trump era. There have been and are beacons of light during this dark time for the USA, and one such shining light will be Senator Mitt Romney. He appears to be one of the few lone voices of integrity remaining in the GOP.
The courage to speak out in spite of the fear of condemnation is always an admirable quality. Romney seems to be the only Republican Senator who has the ability to stand back from the melee and see right from wrong, though I suspect this is not true.
I suspect there are plenty of other Republican Senators who see clearly the wrongs that Trump has committed, but they simply don't have the backbone to stand up and say so. Instead, they, for all time, will live in fear of themselves. They pleased their party and appeased Trump but clearly failed in their duty to the United States of America. The United States deserves better.
