Democrats know they are up against the clock on impeachment.
With time running out Nancy Pelosi colluded with Chuck Schumer on a last-ditch effort to remove President Trump from office.
But Nancy Pelosi’s plan to impeach President Trump just blew up in her face after this devastating setback.
Fake news reporters spent three weeks trying to dream up a scenario under which Nancy Pelosi withholding the articles of impeachment forced Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans to cry uncle and cave in to House Democrats’ demands for more documents and witnesses.
Speaker Pelosi’s allies in the fake news received a second wind on these hopes when former National Security Advisor John Bolton announced he would comply with a Senate subpoena and testify in an impeachment trial.
Democrats and fake news reporters singled out three RINO Senators – Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney and Susan Collins – as the most likely to break ranks and vote with the Democrats on witnesses.
Their defections would put the Democrats on the verge of breaking Mitch McConnell’s insistence on following the Clinton impeachment trial structure from 1999 where the trial consisted of opening arguments and questions from Senators followed by a vote.
McConnell declared the Senate would exonerate the President after a brief trial so Democrats were desperate to string the proceeding along in hopes a smoking gun would emerge.
Much to the Democrats’ and fake news media’s chagrin, Republicans remained united and McConnell announced he had 51 votes from Republicans to ignore the Democrats and begin the Senate trial under the same structure as in 1999.
Collins, Murkowski and Romney told reporters they were on board with this strategy.
“I believe that the Senate should follow the precedent that was established in the trial of President Clinton,” Collins told fake news reporters. “I think that we will decide at that stage who we need to hear from.”
“We’ve got to get to the first place first,” Murkowski added.
“I’d like to hear from John Bolton and other witnesses to provide information. That process will accommodate that. The Clinton process allows for a vote on witnesses to occur after opening arguments,” Romney stated.
Democrats – predictably – fumed.
“That’s not how you run a country. That’s not how you run the United States Senate,” Montana Democrat Senator Jon Tester whined.
“That’s regrettable. If I thought McConnell’s offer to bring witnesses… was in good faith, I could probably vote to proceed with impeachment inquiry. I don’t believe that,” Democrat Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut ranted. “I don’t think he’s going to bring witnesses. I think this is all a whitewash.”
Pelosi was always playing a losing hand.
Mitch McConnell repeatedly stated he was happy not to have to deal with impeachment.
And now a Senate trial will begin in short order.
Ultimately impeachment will blow up in the Democrats faces’ and some Democrats will join Republicans in acquitting the President.
That will allow Donald Trump to roar in to his 2020 re-election campaign boasting of a bipartisan exoneration from a partisan coup attempt to override the results of the 2020 election.
