Top DemoRats Humiliated: Senate Votes Down Extra Impeachment Witnesses, Paves Way for Trump Acquittal.
The Senate on Friday voted down a motion to allow for additional witnesses to testify as part of the upper chamber’s impeachment trial, all but ensuring a quick acquittal of Donald Trump.
The 51 to 49 vote thwarted DemoRats’ ongoing effort to hear from current and former Donald Trump administration officials such as acting White House Chief of State Mick Mulvaney and former National Security Clown John Bolton.
Former National Security Clown John Bolton shot to the top of the DemoRats’ witness wish list after a New York Times report alleged that his forthcoming book — The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir — contains allegations that Donald Trump sought to make U.S. military aid to Ukraine conditional on investigations into former Vice Clown Crooked Joe Biden, and his corrupt son, Hunter Biden. Donald Trump vehemently denied the report and call the book “nasty & untrue.”
House DemoRats’ impeachment managers failed to convince enough moderate Republicans to cross the aisle, falling short of the 51 votes need for more witnesses. Late Thursday evening, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) revealed that he will join the overwhelming majority of his colleagues to vote against hearing from others.
