Friday’s impeachment vote ends this national nightmare

Friday brings closing arguments from each side in the Trump impeachment trial in the Senate followed by votes on whether witnesses will be called or the President will be acquitted.

As I wrote Thursday, former Vice President Joe Biden casts a large shadow on the proceedings as he and his son Hunter are central figures in the phone call transcripts with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

While it is highly questionable whether House managers proved their case that the President is guilty of High Crimes and Misdemeanors, the move to bring in witnesses has a host of Senators feeling uneasy on both sides of the aisle.

The Senators — many in leadership positions — would prefer not to have any sunlight uncover past Ukraine operations involving US funds and loan guarantees being funneled to nefarious parties for covert operations.

Let’s not forget, this is the principle reason President Trump is being impeached. He dared to ask for an open investigation of US involvement in Ukraine. It was not a quid pro quo, it was looking into the status quo of many Deep State operators — under the guise of the Atlantic Council — using Ukraine as a personal piggy bank.

So what does this mean for Friday’s proceedings?

I believe we will get a partisan 53-47 vote for acquittal in the end. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell may lose a Mitt Romney or Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, but the majority will hold for acquittal.

  1. Thank you for putting it all so succinctly, Michael!! I would recommend Sarah Westall’s two videos with wh.blower, Patrick Bergy!! This IT expert, who couldn’t be compromised, cannot seem to get anyone to check out his story! He knows personally many of the people behind the scenes of all this, was in contact with Devin Nunes & Judge Janine, but they both dropped their contact with him. Of course, he gave his story to A. Schiff, as well…..riiiiiiight!! 😉
