The impeachment trial is about to begin in the Senate.
But the left won’t give up on their schemes.
And the White House braces for impact from this major GOP betrayal.
After weeks of stalling and excuses, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was finally forced to transmit the two articles of impeachment to the Senate.
Pelosi has been playing games for weeks in order to buy the Democrats more time to sabotage the trial against President Donald Trump.
Trump was impeached by the House last month, making him the third president in history to have been impeached. And now, Trump is set to face a trial in the Senate.
Many are expecting the Republican-held Senate to acquit Trump of all charges, but new reports may spell trouble for the President.
According to senior White House officials, four or more Republican senators are expected to betray their party, their President, and the American people by voting to call witnesses. Others are expected to join them, including Senator Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Cory Gardner, and Rand Paul.
Democrats have fought to get former national security advisor John Bolton to testify under subpoena. The left has stalled for weeks in order to hear from him and gather more witnesses that they can manipulate against the President. Now with this newest report, it seems these Republican members are falling right into their hands.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is remaining calm and impartial, despite accusations from Pelosi and the left that he is rigging the trial in his favor. McConnell stated that the question of whether or not new witnesses may be called by either party will be decided after the trial is underway.
Pelosi had fought for weeks to get McConnell to cave and agree to her rules for the trial, but he refused to give in to her demands.
The President and his supporters are still defending his innocence and will continue to throughout the trial.
Many believe that by the Senate giving credence to a trial based on the no evidence, no crime, read the transcripts, “no pressure” Impeachment Hoax, rather than an outright dismissal, it gives the partisan Democrat Witch Hunt credibility that it otherwise does not have. I agree!

CBS News reports:
The president has offered various opinions about how he would like a Senate trial to proceed, while at the same time nodding and deferring to the Senate. He has also said he would like to hear from the whistleblower, along with House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and Joe and Hunter Biden. However, motions to call them as witnesses are unlikely to succeed, even though Republicans hold the majority in the upper chamber.
Senate Republicans still hold the majority and will vote against the corruption of the left. They will stand with their President and acquit him of all charges that the left wrongfully brought against him.
