The news is out: [UPDATE: WASHINGTON – The Senate voted Friday to reject subpoenas for witnesses or documents in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, clearing the way for a vote on the verdict.
The largely party-line vote of 51-49 was expected. The 47 Democrats needed at least four Republicans to join them to call witnesses. Only two Republicans – Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah – had announced they would support calling witnesses.
Democrats sought testimony from four officials, including former national security adviser John Bolton and acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, who each declined invitations to testify during the House inquiry.]
The Constitution and the country have been fucked because the US Congress elected to shit on their oath of office. Mother Russia is proud and will be there to make sure everything goes according to the plans. This expected decision opens the door to a tremendously funny elections 2020. Trump will be re-elected after all other candidates are either made fun of or jailed. The Constitution no longer exists; and politicians are free again to go about the business of taking bribes.
