Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

President Trump argued in a tweet Sunday that the Senate holding an impeachment trial based on what he claims is "no evidence," rather than dismissing the trial altogether, "gives the partisan Democrat Witch Hunt credibility that it otherwise does not have."

I do wonder whether the Dims have the focus and the will to push the process forward.

No bets.

Trump can suggest all he wants but McConnell doesn't have the votes to dismiss, not even from Republicans.

And Pelosi is going to get her way with witnesses, too. At least four (minimum necessary) and possibly higher (according to Chuck Schumer) who agree with the Dems that they need to hear from witnesses, especially Bolton.

I do believe there's been some back room horse trading concerning witnesses. Well see soon if Bolton is one of them.

Romney just committed to voting for having witnesses, in particular, Bolton.

Get your popcorn ready.........

You gotta be careful with Romney. When he says "if" that means he's open for offers from The Donald.

Democratic senators, and the handful of Republican senators who think, need to watch out for another possible McConnell trick: A motion to adjourn sine die, which is a motion to adjourn the impeachment trial without setting an actual date for resumption. It has the same effect as a motion to dismiss.

#7 That would deny Trump an inevitable acquittal.

Trumps base wont detach from his rectum no matter what any witnesses say.

The GOP fear their base and will not anger Trump.

The GOP are deasparatly trying to come up with a palatable excuse for not calling witnesses to give their senators an out.

I'd be all for skipping the Senate trial phase and go the right into throwing his Orange Fat Ass directly into a prison cell for the rest of his life phase.

"I'd be all for skipping the Senate trial phase and go the right into throwing his Orange Fat Ass directly into a prison cell for the rest of his life phase."

Then you'd be missing half of the fun part of kidding Trump out of the White House. You know he's going to bellow like a bull when the time comes.

McConnell could, theoretically, skip a trial and go straight to a vote. I think that would be a huge mistake though.

McConnell would try that if he could. But the votes just aren't there. McConnell can't act unilaterally.

That was the whole purpose for the delay in turning over the Articles.
