U.S. Senate votes to table Senator Paul's point of order.
Everything that will now follow--when the actual Senate impeachment debate starts in Feb--will likely be hour upon hour of speeches and posturing by both sides, and then an outcome that resembles this.
Only 5 GOP senators voted NOT to dismiss the impeachment trial:
Collins, Murkowski, Romney, Sasse, and Toomey
Mitch McConnell joins 44 Senate Republicans in a vote to say that the impeachment trial of former president Donald Trump is *unconstitutional*
The Senate just voted on my constitutional point of order.
45 Senators agreed that this sham of a “trial” is unconstitutional.
That is more than will be needed to acquit and to eventually end this partisan impeachment process.
This “trial” is dead on arrival in the Senate.

Sen. Coons says fmr. Pres. Trump "took no action to restrain his supporters and made no effort to check on the safety of his own VP or the leaders of Congress. That alone to me is evidence enough to convict on the charge that was presented to the Senate."
Asked if he would vote to let Trump speak during this 2nd impeachment trial, @ChrisCoons on MSNBC said:
"I haven't thought about that. And I would have to weigh it."
