The House of Representatives officially impeached President Donald Trump a week before the Christmas holiday.

The trial is expected to head to the Senate, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is holding off on delivering the official articles of impeachment to the Republican-dominated Senate until a fair trial can be guaranteed.

Senator and steadfast Trump ally Lindsey Graham (R-CA) scoffed at the idea that he'd be considered an impartial juror. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) even said he'd be taking instructions from the White House on how to conduct it.

Though most Republican lawmakers have proven eager to defend President Donald Trump's rhetoric and policies, regardless of feasibility or accuracy, one former Republican Senator didn't mince words in his criticism of Trump's State of the Union address on February 5.
