Indictment trial, day 5: full analysis

Here are some excerpts from a statement Burr just released: “When this process started, I thought it was unconstitutional to remove a president who was no longer in office. I still think it is. However, the Senate is an institution built on a precedent, and given that the majority in the Senate voted in favor of this trial, the question of constitutionality is now established.[…]The evidence is compelling that President Trump is guilty of inciting an insurgency against an equal branch of government and that the charge rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors. Therefore, I voted to condemn. I don’t take this decision lightly, but I think it is necessary. By what he did and what he did not, President Trump violated his oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
