There Are Probably Enough Votes To Force Witnesses, Including Joe And Hunter Biden

The Washington Post is giddy about calling witnesses, because the House failed to do their job, so they have the big front page headline (and the article even notes calling witnesses is worthless)

McConnell says he currently lacks the votes to block witnesses

White House lawyers pleaded with senators Tuesday to acquit President Trump based on “the Constitution and your common sense,” concluding their defense even as Senate GOP leaders struggled to block demands for new witnesses that could throw the trial into turmoil.

In a closed-door meeting following closing remarks, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told colleagues he doesn’t have the votes to block witnesses, according to people familiar with his remarks who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe them. Just four GOP senators would have to join with Democrats to produce the majority needed to call witnesses — an outcome McConnell has sought to avoid since it could invite new controversy and draw out the divisive proceedings.

An initial vote to allow witnesses, expected Friday, doesn’t ensure witnesses would actually be called, since the Senate would have to subsequently hold separate votes on summoning each individual witness. And Trump’s ultimate acquittal still remains all but assured, since a two-thirds vote would be required to remove him in the GOP-run Senate.

Does the liberal news media ever have actual named sources nowadays? Regardless, even calling witnesses in an attempt to hurt Trump won’t matter: even if Trump attempted a quid pro quo, that’s politics. There are not enough votes. This is about politics for the 2020 election. Democrats are criminalizing normal, everyday, run of the mill politics. Weaponizing it. They should have been careful, because it can boomerang back on them in the future. And in the near term

Graham Predicts 51 GOP Sens. Will Vote for Testimony from Bidens: Hunter Turned Ukraine into ‘ATM Machine’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), while talking to reporters on the sidelines of the Senate impeachment trial, predicted that a majority of Republican senators would likely vote in favor of testimony from former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and the “whistleblower.”

Graham also said Republicans would be interested in hearing from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) official who allegedly worked with Ukraine to interfere in the 2016 election on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

“I’ll make a prediction; there will be 51 Republican votes to call Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, the whistleblower, and the DNC staffer at the very minimum. (snip)

You have to be willfully blind and say that Democratic misconduct doesn’t matter to you not to believe that the [U.S.] president had a good reason to ask the Ukraine to look into the Biden affair… as much as I like Joe Biden, he needs to answer questions of why he allowed his son to continue to receive millions of dollars from [allegedly corrupt Ukrainian company] Burisma when he should’ve known it was a conflict of interest.”

The only reason to call Hunter is to note that he had zero experience, zero knowledge, for the “job” at Burisma. That sets the stage to call Joe, who would be pleading the 5th quite a bit. But, being Joe, he’ll want to yammer a lot, especially after they play the video of him bragging that he extorted Ukraine with $1 billion in aid if they didn’t fire the prosecutor investigating Burisma.

Let’s call that prosecutor (well, ask if they’d like to testify). Let’s call the whistleblower. Let’s call witness 18. Let’s call pro-Trump witnesses, since the House tried to call anti-Trump ones.

Democrats wanted to create an issue to stop Trump’s re-election in 2020. That’s why they want Bolton. Well, the GOP should drop the napalm on the Democrats with anti-Dem witnesses. At the end of the day, there are not 67 who will vote to kick Trump out, so, fight fire with fire, hurt the Democrat chances to win in 2020. Not just the White House, but Senate and House.

    We always knew their would be witnesses since the democrats are demanding it.

    They know there are 23 SENATORS UP FOR REELECTION AND ONLY 10 Democrats and of those 10 all are considered SAFE except Jones from Alabama in a special election. He will lose to The guy Trump fired to get his old job back.

    The Establishment is in horror that Biden and Warren are leading the charge in the campaign so what better way to let TOMB BERG win the nomination and throw 10 billion of his own money at TRUMP?

    Of the 23 GOP senators, 4 are considered toss-ups. of those 4 it is highly likely the GOP could lose the senate even if Jones from Alabama somehow gets reelected which he probably won’t. It is leaning Red.

    The Democrats want to tie up this impeachment till May or June with an endless barrage of witnesses.

    Latest news by CBS themselves. 83 percent of available views watched the Nixon impeachment. 33 percent watched the Clinton Impeachment……BUT ONLY 5 PERCENT are tuning in to the Trump Impeachment.

    The Democrats are risking a backlash and the GOP senators are going along with this because they are cowards. They are letting Trump be Kavanaughed. The Democrats are rolling the dice. They know that if they don’t do this they will for sure lose to Trump in 2020 and the senate stays red and they might well lose the house too.

    SO IF THE GOP LETS THEM BY CALLING WITNESSES then well the GOP deserves to let this country turn communist and we as voters deserve our fate.

      Disagree.

      If Bolton testifies, so do the Gropin’s, possibly with Zippy and the Hildabeast.

      You honestly think the Demos will allow that?

  2. “Hunter Turned Ukraine into ‘ATM Machine’…”

    That’s not the issue. It was never about Hunter using his razor sharp business acumen to make piles of money by exploiting a commercial advantage that only he could see. The problem is that the US government took by force, piles of money from the US taxpayers, and distributed that pile to people in the Ukraine who then gave a cut of that money to Hunter, because Hunter’s dad was in charge of providing that big pile of money. It is a good old fashioned kick-back style bribery scheme and is obvious on the face of it. It’s just a wonder that Democrats don’t seem to care at all that their top nominee is hopelessly corrupt.

    • formwiz says:

      Name a Democrat nominee in the last 20 years who wasn’t.

      • Professor Hale says:

        Some of the younger ones haven’t had time yet to totally cash in like the Bidens, Clintons, Kennedys, Reids, Obamas, and Pelosis. The younger ones are still getting caught paying for a new dress with campaign funds. Chump change.

  3. formwiz says:

    Watch Demo interest in Bolton drop to < 0 if the Gropin’s and Hildabeast / Zippy will also be called.

  4. Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

    If Hunter won’t sit, you must acquit.
