Agreed. Their conduct doesn't offend them or they wouldn't be doing it, but they sure hated being called out for it in public. Too bad.


Some of them will realy hate it when they get 'called out' for it by losing their elections this fall.

as ex head RNC Chief Michael Steele has said they are on trial, every bit as much as Trump is. We will see if there are any more with balls, but not holding my breath.

Maybe the Republicans could actually call witnesses and review documents instead of doing their best to ensure that no evidence is allowed in the trial. That way they can show that they do not intend to cover-up Trump's actions and they won't have to be offended.

 

In other words, these Republicans need to do their job and quit being such little snowflakes.

The republicans are OFFENDING the Constitution and how they are hiding evidence that T RUMP has actually bragged about.   

  Appears that ROBERTS might do the country a bigger favor by pointing out that Trump attorneys Jay Sekulow and Pat Cipollone should not be making  FLAT OUT LIES.

Key moderate Republicans 'offended,' 'stunned' after Nadler accuses senators of 'cover-up'
Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine are two of the few Republicans who have expressed an openness to hearing from witnesses.

Two key moderate Senate Republicans criticized House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., on Thursday after he claimed this week that senators who do not support hearing from witnesses and entering documents into President Donald Trump's impeachment trial would be complicit in a cover-up.

An aide told NBC News that Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska was "offended" when Nadler, one of the seven House impeachment managers, made the accusation on the Senate floor.

 

Murkowski is one of a handful of moderate GOP senators who have expressed an openness to calling witnesses, including top Trump administration officials. For Democratic senators who need four Republican votes to support them on the issue, Murkowski's would be a critical vote.

Susan Collins of Maine, another Republican who has been open to witnesses, wrote a note to Chief Justice John Roberts, who is presiding over the trial, taking issue with Nadler's remark, according to a spokesperson.


"Well, I was stunned by Congressman Nadler's approach, and it reminded me that if we were in a normal debate in the Senate that the rule will be invoked to strike the words of the Senator, for imputing another Senator in this case," she said in a statement.

"So, I did write a note raising the issue of whether there had been a violation of the rules of the Senate, and I gave that note to Laura Dove, and well shortly thereafter the Chief Justice did admonish both sides and I was glad that he did," she added.

Dove is the Senate majority secretary.

Despite her objection to the remark, Collins said it would not affect her votes during the trial.

Other Republican senators, such as Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, also criticized Nadler's comment.

"If the Democrats are smart, they won't put Jerry Nadler on the field again," Johnson said. "He was so out of line. It's offensive accusing us of a cover-up."
