The Senate impeachment trial continues today. Many are wondering if the Senate will vote to bring witnesses to the stand.
We know that many Republicans are angling for a quick acquittal. To them, the Democrats did such a poor job in their opening arguments, the Senate has no choice but to acquit.
But a convenient “bombshell” from the New York Times, in leaked details of John Bolton’s manuscript, has Democrats demanding witnesses. How convenient.
They especially want John Bolton, whom they think will throw Trump under the bus.
Chuck Schumer is even saying he will not make a “witness swap” deal, which would give Trump’s team a chance to question Hunter Biden.
Some fair-weathered Republicans (like Mitt Romney and Susan Collins) are actually open to dragging Bolton—but not Hunter—in for testimony.
But a top Republican representative, Mark Meadows, gave them some bad news.
From Daily Wire:
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) warned Republican Senators during a Monday night interview on CBS News that if they break with President Donald Trump and side with the Democrats that they will face “political repercussions” for their actions.
Ouch. Mark Meadows fed Senate Republicans a heavy dose of tough medicine. He told them if they break from supporting Trump during this trial there will be “political repercussions.”
The election is just around the corner. It’s clear that GOP voters are behind Trump all the way, and House Republicans stuck together to defend the President.
There are crucial states whose senators are up for re-election. Are Republicans in the Senate willing to risk their jobs just to make nice with Democrats?
Let’s get real, here. When was the last time Democrats really tried to work with Republicans?
When Obama was president, they rammed their agenda through (remember Obamacare?). They never bothered listening or negotiating with Republicans.
Even when Republicans won the House and Senate, Obama and the left generally refused to make deals to cooperate.
Today that trend continues. With the House in Democrats’ hands, they rammed through their impeachment inquiry.
Not once did they bother to listen to or respect Republicans’ objections or requests.
Now, you mean to tell me there are Republican senators willing to respect Democrats’ demands? Give me a break.
I’m guessing I’m not the only voting American who feels this way. Any senators who break from the president to support Democrats might not have a job after November.
SHARE to tell Republicans to stand strong with the president!
