No. Nobody expected a conviction in the senate.

Anyone that has been paying attention knows that.

However there was the slim hope that there would be enough votes to hear from key witnesses such as Bolton that 45 had previously blocked.

There was also the even slimmer hope that the convict side would win a symbolic majority of votes which wouldn't have removed 45 (as a 2/3 vote is needed for that) but would have been a stronger message. 

But Romney voting to convict was better than nothing. 

am with you on that, I think everybody knew he wouldn't be remove, November 2020 will do that, I was expecting to hear some witnesses like Bolton, Mulveney, etc., but mostly was looking for to see/hear Giuliani the clown.... maybe all hopes not dead yet

He might win in 2020. Horrible but true.

If he's reelected or loses and refuses to leave the white house, the nightmares will be real life.

God and Mitt's family (who he claims guided his decision to impeach) have nothing to do with the fact no crime was committed. Bad taste, sleazy? Perhaps but that is not grounds for impeachment. Trump has empowered the nation to increase their wealth. The ability to use my skills and wits to build wealth is the only freedom I have ever known and will be voting for him again. Democrats have only hysteria and drama. Not solutions for working Americans.

Impeachment isn't about literal crimes as in the criminal code. Abuse of power which Romney found 45 guilty of is most certainly an impeachable offense. 

 

Also impeachment isn't about disagreement on policy issues. That is definitely for elections. As Romney said he agrees with 45 80 percent of the time but finding him guilty was not about that.
