Iowa senator Joni Ernst explains her pro-Trump vote today

Here she is:

Ernst, like many other GOP Senators, is hiding behind a contested interpretation of Article I, section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, an interpretation that the Senate rejected four days ago. Mitch McConnell did the same thing today. But unlike McConnell, who made a clear statement of Trump’s guilt, Ernst says nothing about Trump’s role in inciting the riot.

She also implies that this was somehow an act of partisan revenge. Tell that to the GOP Senators–Sasse, Toomey, Collins, Murkowski, Cassidy, Burr, and Romney–who also voted to convict.
