Breaking: Decision in Impeachment Trial In, Liberals Losing Their Minds On Social Media

I wrote earlier about how all the Senate Democrats voted to have witnesses at the impeachment trial, joined by five Republicans.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) then both said they would call House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) to grill her about what she knew and when she knew it.

That of course didn’t thrill Democrats. But then after realizing that they were digging themselves a hole from which they might not be able to get out, they flipped back again, making a deal to just accept a statement but not having any witnesses.

According to CNN, Senate Democrats pressured the House Managers to back off.

Translation: they were afraid that they would do more than just lose, that they were going to open up a whole can of worms, with people calling Pelosi and others into question.

Now the Senate has just voted to acquit President Donald Trump. While they had seven votes from Republicans, they needed a 2/3 vote to convict, or 67 senators. They weren’t even close and it was clear beforehand that they would not be. The final vote was 57-43.

All the usual suspects.

Democrats had a lot of issues from the start: a snap impeachment without a hearing, no witnesses or evidence produced so no record for the House Managers to really work from, the question of whether it was even constitutional at all to proceed against a former president no longer in office and the failure of the facts to support the “incitement to insurrection” charge that was a massive overreach of a charge.

Liberals are now furious at what they feel was a cave at the last minute by the Democrats when they could have dragged it out and called witnesses. The reaction was glorious.

Kamala Harris’ niece:

The Biden team tried to run away from the blame-pointing as much as they could, claiming they didn’t have anything to do with the witness decision.

You know it’s bad when they’re all scrambling and no one wants to take responsibility for the crash and burn that this was. Bottom line: they all screwed up when they tried once again to take Trump down, he prevails again.
