McConnell has the votes to shut down the Democrat impeachment clown show: NO on witnesses

McConnell is sending Pelosi a message: 'The Senate is not your domain'

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) We hear a lot of grumbling amongst conservatives about the manner in which Democrats are conducting themselves regarding the impeachment of President Donald Trump, and all of it is fair.

The charges are bogus; there was no “quid pro quo” regarding Ukraine; the president is actually the victim here; and our favorite: Democrats are hypocrites when it comes to demanding a “fair trial” in the Senate when the process by which they impeached Trump to begin with was a one-sided affair.

There are a lot of explanations here that fit, but the only one that matters is this one: Democrats hate our country as it was founded, so their mission in life is to destroy our system of government, our governing institutions, and all confidence in the function of government — to tear it all down — so they can rebuild an authoritarian model in their image.

That’s all you need to understand about the impeachment of President Trump.

Well, thankfully he has enough GOP allies in the Senate who are tiring of the Democrat clown show in the House. On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced that he has the votes to shut down cold the Democrat ‘demand’ for impeachment witnesses.

Senate Democrats needed four Republicans to vote with them in the upper chamber in order to push through the witness demand which, by the way, is just another lame attempt by the Garbage Party to stretch out impeachment into the future, for 2020 campaign reasons.

There are no “witnesses” to the president’s “crimes” because he didn’t commit any. So, again, this ‘witness’ business is jut part of the same clown show the House launched in the fall.

According to The Hill, McConnell has the votes to keep the Senate trial short, meaning new witness testimony and documents would not be included (because there is no need for them). Two of the ‘moderate’ Republicans – Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) – are siding with McConnell (still, Alaska, when the time comes, do better than Murkowski because you can).

For their part, Collins and Murkowski prefer the Senate impeachment trial model used for Bill Clinton: Having House impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team make their opening statement, then, if necessary, the Senate could subpoena for additional documents and witness testimony.

“The process moved to a period during which the Senate debated and voted that three witnesses should be deposed. I believe that this process — the Clinton approach — worked well,” Collins said in a statement.



There are other #NeverTrumpers in the Senate, like Mitt Romney, but McConnell runs a pretty tight ship. And every Republican, including Romney, want something from the president.

Meantime, McConnell also seems to be sending Pelosi & Co. a message as well: The Senate is his domain, not theirs, and he will not allow the system to be torn down on his watch.

If you want to see what demon-seed dems have planned for America, look to the Euro-Peon model.

It’s called National Suicide.

No thanks, demon-seeds. We don’t want your vision for America! We reject your perversions, abominations, and vile behavior.

The democrats have been granted a delusion from above. It was their choice to go there, and they shall own their great, demise.

And he will shut down the “clown show” when? … McConnell is as much a part of the problem as he is a solution.

Having the votes to shut it down and actually shutting it down are two different things. As usual Republicans opt for talk instead of action.

Why is Trump the man and the office of President being denied the full right to publicly present defenses and charges against the bogus claims and claimants against the man and the office since the day he was elected?
What and who’s what is being covered up???

Nancy Pelosi sent McConnell a letter to suggest how the Senate should conduct its trial proceedings. Senator McConnell should now politely send Nancy a letter telling her how to conduct a fair Impeachment proceeding in the future if she wants her future Articles of Impeachment to be given full and fair consideration. This is called Tit for Tat, or constructive criticism, and under the Rule of Law is a bi-partisanship requirement, assuming that the two parties and the two Chambers of Congress wish to deal with each other by mutual consent and to mutual advantage. The recent House Impeachment Proceedings… Read more »

A compulsion to destroy themselves has taken over the Left throughout the West. It is Nihilism.
Sanity, pragmatism, reason, wisdom, awareness, regard for truth, acknowledgment of reality, self-preservation – everything good is gone for them.
Hatred and self-loathing and revulsion and hysteria are shattering them. They will not stop until they are completely decimated and destroyed.

I’m on the other side on this. Let it play out so that the American people can see what douche bags the Leftists are. Drag every witness in, hold Pelosi et al collective feet to the fire, make all the Senators stay in DC for the duration of the trial. Stream it live on Netflix. Anything and everything to embarrass them. Let the American People know what it is costing us, what bills aren’t being discussed, what problems are being ignored while the Left has their temper tantrum. Take the gloves off. Now is the time for an old fashioned… Read more »
