If you're a Senator running for president and you can cast a vote to remove your political opponent from office, logically that is interfering with the election. I don't see how anybody could genuinely argue that it isn't a conflict of interest. I get it, Orange Man Bad. That's not wrong, but senators voting to remove the president in a campaign cycle is definitely a conflict of interest. Now where did I call myself unbiased and uninformed? I'm one of the nuts who throws their votes away on third party candidates. Our system is broken and this impeachment isn't making things any better, regardless of anybody's intent.
