In an interview with CNN, President Biden said that he thinks the senate impeachment trial of former President Trump “has to happen,” but he doesn’t believe that there are enough votes for him to be convicted.
Biden said, “The Senate has changed since I was there, but it hasn’t changed that much,” and he acknowledged the effect it could have on his legislative agenda and Cabinet nominees but said there would be “a worse effect if it didn’t happen.”
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is the latest senator to speak out about the trial and has gone viral on Twitter with the comments he made.
“Waste of time impeachment isn’t about accountability. It’s about demands from vengeance from the radical left and a new ‘show’ for the ‘Political Entertainment Industry’,” Rubio tweeted.

On the other side of the aisle, Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee Mark Warner (D-VA) has said that he won’t necessarily vote to convict the former president.
Warner said, “I’m going to reserve final judgement until I hear the case made by Mr. Trump’s lawyers.”
“I was on the floor of the Senate January 6th when the insurrectionists crashed into the Capitol and took over the chamber and, frankly, desecrated the building,” Warner added, calling for accountability.
