POLITICS | Senate Votes No On Additional Witnesses In Impeachment Trial

 

HENRY RODGERS CAPITOL HILL REPORTER
.

The United States Senate voted Friday against bringing in additional witnesses to testify before the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

The vote was 51-49.

It was reported Thursday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had enough votes among his Republican colleagues in the Senate to block votes for additional witnesses in the impeachment trial against Trump. Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney and Republican Maine Sen. Susan Collins voted with Democrats in calling for additional witnesses to testify.

As Democrats continued to push for additional witnesses in the Senate trial, McConnell expressed confidence that his party would stick together and vote against having more witnesses, according to ABC News. The Majority Leader believed he had enough Republican support to defeat any motion brought forward by Democrats regarding additional witnesses in the trial. (RELATED: Report: McConnell Has Votes To Dismiss New Witnesses In Impeachment Trial)

The House of Representatives officially voted Jan. 15 to send the articles of impeachment against Trump to the Senate and approved the House’s impeachment managers.

    Don’t think for a moment that this is over for the house. They fear what Trump can do to their sweetheart deal with The Administrative State. That fear is represented in hatred for him and those that also believe in a representative republic that is stated clearly in our Constitution.
