What about the part that the senators take an oath to be impartial for the trial.

Yes, if the democrats in the senate are impartial, they will vote to acquit.  I don't expect them to be impartial, do you?

Also - if the dems in the house were impartial, they would have called all pertinent witnesses, opened the proceedings to the other party, and would have ended the process with no articles of impeachment  ... and we wouldn't be where we are now.

If the dems in the house were impartial, there would never have been any hearings about this what so ever. It was all political a coverup of their own actions.

I felt it would never get this far.  Pelosi's interviews this weekend led me to believe it was more of a vindictive act than anything else.  Not the way I imagined the loyal opposition behaving.  This has been a colossal waste of tax payer money.

A colossal waste of tax payer money is having air force jets stopping at a private air port to fuel up so the pilots can stay at a trump hotel.  Or, sending your old gov all the way across Ireland so he can stay in a trump property

The pilots were staying at Trump's Property in Scotland long before he became President.  Only turned into an issue when the haters found out.

I suppose you think Pelosi's antics are worth the money.  She will achieve nothing.

The government sets the rates it will pay for things.  If a property does not offer itself for those rates it is not used.  Since those pilots, etc. have to stay and fuel somewhere, there is no loss to the taxpayer.  There might be a loss to the property for meeting government rates though.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

You want to pick and choose the words in the constitution that favors your choice and ignore the rest?

No, I do not.

Articles of impeachment went to the senate today. I guess the answer to the title of this thread is yup.
I do believe that he is innocent. The only reason the democrats are doing this is because he is so great that they are worried that he will fix absolutely everything and we can not have that.
Ha Ha ha. Lets all watch fox news together!

 I do have to say you guys are making me start paying attention to politics just so I can come over here and give you a purple nurple.  When gardening and bee keeping weather improves, I will leave you guys to it.
I do love the intensity
