Summary

DES MOINES — The opening of the political year has collided with the end of the impeachment of President Trump. This is not a new observation: Over the past four years, the president has remade the party into a wholly owned subsidiary of Trump Inc.Senate set to acquit Trump in Wednesday impeachment voteFriday’s vote showed the value of that remaking, and the explanations provided by two Republicans — Sens. By blocking witnesses, those senators have chosen to deny voters, in whose judgment they claim to be entrusting so much, additional and relevant information that might inform their decisions about whether the president deserves a second term in office.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) resisted impeachment for months and months, despite facing pressure from her liberal block. In the end, the vote to impeach failed the test Pelosi had set out earlier, which is that, for impeachment to be successful, it should be bipartisan.The Senate took a page from the House, deciding that a rushed process was in their interest and certainly the interest of the president, despite strong support from the public for testimony from witnesses who had relevant information and not yet been heard.
