Did Trump have to bribe Senate for their impeachment votes?

Moscow Mitch McConnell

That smirk on Moscow Mitch's face is there for a reason. He has profited financially from this whole Ukraine/impeachment affair. In an article from October of 2019, Salon exposes the fact that...
"Political action committees for Republican Sens. Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham reportedly accepted $7.35 million in contributions from a Ukrainian-born oligarch with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin during the 2016 election. McConnell and Graham are co-sponsors of a new resolution condemning the House impeachment inquiry."
 Aside from the fact that Donald Trump's 2017 Tax Cuts were a dismal failure for the average American, and were confirmed to have only benefited only the wealthy, now there is another hidden factor reported by RawStory...
"A new report reveals that the 2017 GOP tax law was rife with monumental self-dealing by rich GOP lawmakers who have since benefited bigly. According to a Center for Public Integrity analysis, several Republican members of Congress directly cashed in on the multibillion-dollar windfall from the corporate tax cuts the GOP pushed through on a party-line vote."
There's more...
"At least seven Republican senators owned stocks in companies that spent billions on buybacks, resulting in great personal profit, according to the Center for Public Integrity. The report came on the same day that former New York Rep. Chris Collins, who was the first sitting GOP congressman to support Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, was sentenced to 26 months in prison for insider trading."
In hindsight, the Republican Congress obviously knew what they were doing when they fast-tracked Trump's Tax Cuts, knowing full well the rewards they would eventually reap. And these Senators won't forget...
"Republican senators in purple states, like Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and David Perdue of Georgia, have personally reaped hundreds of millions from the tax law and are repaying the president by serving as his impeachment propaganda machine rather than impartial jurors..."
Fortunately, John Bolton release of his book manuscript condemning Donald Trump could very well change the whole outlook of the Senate trial.
