Let's put this in context. The Senate has now left the Capitol for a week. On PBS Lisa Desjardins noted that the parking lot was probably emptying out as she reported from the building. The House Managers could postpone the trial for the day and left everybody go. But when they came back, would the same votes be there? As it is, they got 7 GOP votes, the first bipartisan vote to convict in U.S. history. There was a gamble, and they declined to; and probably picked up at least two votes.

How much better was it going to be than this? Meanwhile, Trump's victory statement was completely premature.

Our Capitol was sacked
43 Republicans sided with Trump anyway
7 of them said: no
I don’t know what will become of Trump
But the Republican Party as we knew it isn’t going to win again with him after this
Even he knows what he did could get him in trouble. OTOH, this is both funny and true:
Trump has privately voiced concern about whether he could face charges related to the riot, multiple people say. While explaining his vote, McConnell said Trump was "practically & morally responsible" and that the legal process could address his role. Cheney has said similar.— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) February 13, 2021
And here's hoping his 15 minutes are over:

Wish I could hug Lana Zak right now. She was just subjected to a chauvinist pig on national television for some seven minutes. Disgraceful. He mimics at one point. Is condescending. Throws his mic down. Storms off. He’s Trump. A loser and sucker. The GOP supports THIS. https://t.co/CTsa7wle3N— Rex Chapman🏇🏼 (@RexChapman) February 13, 2021
