The Khaleej Times published an article regarding the weak legal case against Trump in the recent impeachment trial. It was authored by Dr. Sandeep Gopalan of Carolina University. He writes:
58-52; 57-53. That’s the final scorecard in the highest stakes gladiatorial sport in the world – taking down the president of the United States. In this game of thrones, the incumbent had a happy ending and President Donald Trump was acquitted by the Senate in a largely party-line vote. Democrats needed 67 votes to convict and remove him from office, but they fell far short as Republican kingmaker Mitch McConnell managed his flock adroitly and delivered a victory for Trump.
