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 President Donald Trump.Basically, The House didn't do their job as prosecutors. They failed. Their case was tossed out of court. The House had the opportunity to have John Bolton testify before Adam Schiff's Clown Show. The House chose not to pursue Bolton. They tried to pass their failure on this onto The Senate, who, correctly, would have none of this nonsense from the House.
The 51 to 49 vote thwarted Democrats’ ongoing effort to hear from current and former Trump administration officials such as acting White House Chief of State Mick Mulvaney and former National Security Advisor John Bolton.
Only two Republicans — Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Susan Collins (R-ME) — voted in favor of the motion for more witnesses, with the former saying he believes that it was important to hear from Bolton.
Besides, DEMs have had nothing but contempt for Bolton for decades. Until the past 24-36 hours, when they fell in love with him because of some alleged, second-hand report from The NY Times based on unpublished manuscripts of a future book written by Bolton. I guess there's a shortage on current-events political books sitting, unsold, in warehouses everywhere.
The House failed. The DEMS were driving a bus off a cliff and they were the only ones who weren't aware of it. Or they were fully aware and decided to ignore it based solely on bias and TDS. If that isn't the definition of delusion and derangement, then I don't know what is.
The House failed in forming a coherent and substantive case. Instead, House Managers carried into The Senate nothing more than a bag of garbage. And, as DEMS always do, they pass their messes onto others, feebly hoping that the heavy-lifting and fixing their mistakes will be done by others. The Senate and counsel for the President turned the onus right back onto Schiff and Company. And House Managers had nothing.
Schiff and Company would have had a better argument entering The Senate with the excuse that, "the dog ate their homework."
As expected, RINO's Mittens Romney and Susan Collins voted with the DEMS. Both need to stick a 'D' behind their name and both need to be challenged, and defeated, by more Trumpian Republicans or Conservatives.
I haven't checked social media and don't plan on it, but I hope DEMs everywhere are feeling crushed; unhinged and deranged, thrown into depths of despair. And copious amounts of The Sweet, Unfathomable and Yummy Tears of Sadness.
Copious, Copious amounts...
