    White House expects GOP defections on calling witnesses in Senate impeachment trial


    Now I remember making a post in here last month asking why are Republicans so scared to death of calling witnesses with DIRECT KNOWLEDGE to the shakedown scheme with Ukraine -- despite all of the tough talk about "Wait and see when it gets to the Senate, and Trump's witnesses testify" -- all of the Trumpers have totally abandoned the whole witness testifying thing -- unless of course those witnesses are everybody WHO HAD ZERO DIRECT KNOWELEDGE of what Trump was impeached for....which obviously proves that republicans are full of shit...as usual.....again, why are they so afraid of witness testimony??

    "The White House is preparing for some Republican senators to join Democrats in voting to call witnesses in President Trump's impeachment trial, which could get underway in the coming days. Senior White House officials tell CBS News they increasingly believe that at least four Republicans, and likely more, will vote to call witnesses. In addition to Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, Mitt Romney of Utah and possibly Cory Gardner of Colorado, the White House also views Rand Paul of Kentucky as a "wild card" and Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee as an "institutionalist" who might vote to call witnesses, as one official put it."

    I thought once Pelosi handed over the articles of impeachment, Moscow Mitch would just simply call a vote to skip a trial and dismiss the impeachment charges outright -- but apparently, he fears he doesn't have the votes for such a blatant display of sycophancy...I definitely don't remember it playing out that way during the last impeachment trial -- so what's the problem with calling witnesses??

    Trump did nothing wrong.

    He would have no problem finding witneses and precedence to make that known.

    Well, there is nothing wrong with establishing the reason for the phone call, is there???

    And once Creepy Uncle Joe and his crackhead son are put in the witness chair, it's all over for the Democrats!!!

    The Ds are so damn dumb. They pursued O’s and Hillary’s made up Russia hoax for 3 years then vote for impeachment on an absurd Ukrainian phone call. Yet, they ignore Don’s illegal warmongering. What a dumb party.

    If Trump has done nothing wrong, bring Bolton, Mulvaney and Pompeo on in.
