Report: Democrats Do Not Have Votes Needed To Continue Senate Trial


Democrats do not have the votes needed to continue the Senate trial.

Fox News senior reporter Chad Pergram wrote: “Senate does not appear to have the votes to open the door to witnesses tomorrow night. Collins and Romney for witnesses. Alexander opposed. Even if Murkowski is a yes, they don’t have the votes. 50-50 vote is a tie, which by rule, fails.”

Pergram noted that if Democrats do not have the votes needed to call for more witnesses that “the Senate would then vote for verdicts on both articles.”

Pergram’s analysis came immediately after Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) announced just minutes prior that he was not in favor of calling for additional witnesses and documents in the trial.

The New York Times noted that Alexander’s decision was “a strong indication that Republicans have lined up the votes to block a call for more documents and witnesses like the former national security adviser, John R. Bolton,” but warned “Democrats are hinting at a gambit to frustrate the Republicans’ plans, though Senator Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, has refused to tip his hand.” More

Seems to me that the only person working in Washington is our President, a non-politician. Look at what he has accomplished during this debacle.

Laughing in the Democrats smug faces. Their destruction is imminent and we as a people will be for it. Be warned Democrats the gloves are off and we are coming for every last one of you. Start packing your bags.
