     The big problems with the Dems impeachment performance were boredom and repetitive garbage.  The Senate spectator gallery was at least half-empty throughout the first week of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial and senators serving as the jury in the marathon sessions are taking notice — some stunned that there aren’t more people watching history unfold, while others understand the public avoiding the repetitive proceedings. Journalists aren’t allowed to bring cellphones or cameras into the gallery, so the noticeably small audience is known directly only to people able to access the chamber. 

     The spectator gallery offers a view over the shoulders of senators in a surprisingly compact chamber as debate unfolds over whether Trump should be removed from office. An acquittal is all but assured, with two-thirds of votes — or at least 20 Republican defections — needed for conviction.  Some Republicans said the monotonous Democratic opening arguments are to blame.
