The anti-Trump movement continues to fail.
A bipartisan movement between Democrats and weak Republicans has failed due to “lack of support”.

The pursuit of a bipartisan effort to censure former President Donald Trump has ended due to lack of support, according to Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va.
Kaine and Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, drafted a proposal to formally chastise Trump after it became unlikely of gaining a conviction in his second impeachment trial.
Collins was one of five Republican senators who voted not to dismiss the impeachment trial last week. That meant Democrats were 12 votes short of getting a conviction.
Kaine said Tuesday the censure effort did not have enough support from Republicans or Democrats, per Newsweek.
“We don’t have enough support on the Republican side because they don’t want to bar Trump from running from office,” Kaine said.
“I don’t have enough support on the Democratic side because for most of my colleagues, it’s impeachment or nothing.”
Some of Kaine’s fellow Democrats indicated they only would consider joining a bipartisan proposal if at least 10 Republican senators publicly supported the motion. That would assure the 60-vote margin required to pass the legislation in the Senate.
They’ll never learn.
These political witchhunts always end badly for them.
