Here’s what we’ve learned from Trump’s impeachment trial

Two key Republican senators, Lisa Murkowski and Lamar Alexander, decided Friday to vote against hearing witnesses and seeking new evidence in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. The final tally: 51 no, 49 for. Many Democrats are now saying that this has compromised the impeachment process. While the Republicans claim that the compromise started with the nature of the articles.

SORRY Nancy Pelosi but you’re NOT the QUEEN of America! BTW Nancy, you don’t get to decide the validity of a decision made by the United States Senate. Again, YOU’RE NOT the QUEEN ... the United States of America is a Republic! And Nancy, you did a TERRIBLE job with the Articles of Impeachment. It’s APPALLING that you and your cronies are DEMANDING the SENATE do your JOB! The House Vote on your shallow and INVALID Articles of Impeachment will be LEGAL and most DEFINITELY VALID! The America people DEMAND the “DO NOTHING DEMOCRATS” get to WORK on the People’s Business NOW!

they can always impeach him 10 or 100 more times before the election. all it takes is a simple vote. it's not like they did anything special the first time. stop acting like this is something special. just order more collectable pens. I'm sure the taxpayers don't mind.

They keep muddying the water at every turn. "If the president doesn't do what we want, it's proof he's guilty." "If the Senate doesn't do what we want, then it's a cover up." "If the president gets aquited, it's not a real aquital." I guess it's easy to dupe their constituents.

If Democrats needed witnesses and evidence they should've taken that up with the Judiciary. Instead they layed the foundations of their case on sand and assumptions, now don't cry when a gust of wind brings it all crashing down.

He must mean voting against ADDITIONAL witnesses. There are currently 17 witnesses on record in the impeachment trial. The question was "Do we need any additional witnesses?" and Schiff answered that quite clearly when he stated at the trial that the case for impeachment was already made in the house. So by Schiff's own admission additional witnesses are unnecessary.

I predict that if Trump is acquitted before the SOU, the Democrats will walk out in protest. Pelosi planned this long ago. She timed her release of the articles to the senate so they could use the Bolton book as the basis for opening up the trial to new witnesses. It didn't work. The obvious "next step" is to throw a huge hissy fit and scream that the process was unfair.

You could have just stopped with Democrats seek to undermine and leave it at that. They've done nothing but seek to undermine the Constitution, the process of elections, and the process of impeachment. Democrats love to undermine the Republic in any way possible.
