(Tea Party PAC) – The impeachment sham of Donald Trump has cost the country millions of dollars but also caused Congress to be effectively ineffective, which is nothing new for Democrat lawmakers. They have been completely ineffective for the American people since Trump won the 2016 election and has been our President. Now, it’s up to the Republican-led Senate to put an end to this charade once and for all.
Ring leader Adam Schiff and his band of circus clowns have been calling on the Senate to call on and subpoena new witnesses, claiming if the Senate refuses to do this it somehow proves they are “covering for” and protecting President Trump. Bullying is always the go-to tactic for liberals.
Needless to say, Republican Senators have been clear on their stance that they believe the impeachment to be a sham and that the House did not provide even remotely compelling evidence to convict Trump of any wrongdoing, therefore they do not see any need in prolonging the trial by calling anymore witnesses.
While most GOP Senators have been in line with this consensus, there have been a few question marks. Now, however, it seems Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has the votes needed to shut down this impeachment charade, possibly as soon as Friday.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
On Wednesday, McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) — always a wavering and unreliable GOP vote — met in the morning. After that meeting, The Hill reported, it was clear “that the question of having additional witnesses is settled, and the Senate will vote Friday to wrap up the impeachment trial of President Trump.”
There was no discussion of witnesses at a Senate GOP lunch meeting Wednesday, which was held a couple hours after McConnell and Murkowski met for about 20 to 30 minutes.
That was seen as a sign by several senators that Democrats will fail to convince four Republicans to join them in calling for witnesses. Without a vote to hear from witnesses, the trial could end as soon as Friday.
“We’re going to get it done by Friday, hopefully,” Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) said following the meeting.
Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.), emerging from the lunch, said, “I think I can say the mood is good.”
Braun expressed confidence that McConnell will be able to keep his conference unified enough to defeat a motion to consider subpoenas for additional witnesses and documents.
“If I had to guess, no witnesses,” he said.
“We’ll be in a place where I think everyone is going to have their mind made up and I believe that we’ll be able to move to a verdict, and the witness question will be clear at that point,” Braun added.
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), another wavering vote on the GOP side and who has called for calling witnesses, would not talk to reporters as he left the lunch. Sen. Susan Collins (R-MN) has also been named as a Republican who may support witnesses.
Even just as late as Tuesday, it was unclear if McConnell would have the necessary votes but it seems that he does, as even liberal outlets, like Politico and Wall Street Journal, are reporting that he has been successful in holding his GOP majority in line.
It’s about time this impeachment sham was shut down once and for all.
