Tuesday on The Chad Hasty Show, Republican strategist Matt Mackowiak joined the program to talk about the impeachment trial of former President Trump that is now underway in the U.S. Senate, and the future of sports betting in Texas.

While talking about the basic motivations behind the impeachment trial Mackowiak said,

Look the Dems really want to push this insurrection thing, politically. And I think they want to try to put Republican senators in a position to vote not to convict, and then use that issue against them in critical Senate races in 2022. That's what this is about, it's about politics. It's not about righteous indignation and morality and all these other things that they're going to pretend that it's about. It's all about politics.
