Moderate Democrats may vote to acquit Donald Trump

January 29, 2020

  Unless something unforeseen happens–and the left had hoped the John Bolton leak would be it but that does not seem to be the case–the verdict in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial is not in doubt. The President will be acquitted and the only remaining question will be the final tally. We had expected this to go along party lines but it is beginning to look like some Democrats might be wavering.

  Here is more:

A trio of moderate Senate Democrats is wrestling with whether to vote to convict Donald Trump in his impeachment trial — or give the president the bipartisan acquittal he’s eagerly seeking.

Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Doug Jones of Alabama are undecided on whether to vote to remove the president from office and are “struggling” over where to land, said Manchin.

All three senators remain undecided after hearing arguments from the impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team. But they could end up with a creative solution.

One or more senators may end up splitting their votes, borrowing a move from Rep. Jared Golden (D-Maine), who voted for the abuse of power charge but against the one on obstruction of Congress.

  And Dianne Feinstein has said she could possibly vote to acquit the President. This is not going to change the outcome of the trial, we already know how it is going to turn out, but what it will do is this: the Democrats want to make the claim during the election cycle that corrupt Republicans protected the criminal in the White House by covering up his actions during the impeachment trial, they want to claim the fix was in and use this to arouse their base, however if enough Democrats cross over and vote for acquittal it will end being a bipartisan acquittal and will lend the legitimacy to the trial that will not allow the Democrats to make that claim.

  On another note, don’t you find it funny that for the most part we already know what the final vote tally will be and the trial has not even begun? In the interest of pretending to hear the evidence, or lack thereof, you would think all Senators would state on the record they cannot make a decision before the trial, but what do I know?

    I predict this will end with no witnesses. There is not a prayer in the world that the GOP or Dems want anything investigated or revealed about Ukraine.. They are so far involved in the Ukraine honey pot.

      I think you are spot on, they are all dirty and this is nothing but a charade. The Dems are going to scream about the Republicans not allowing witnesses and try to use it during the election but the truth is they do not want witnesses either and they would not be screaming about it if they knew there would be.

    I’m still nauseous from viewing several hours of the smug Shiftless and the rest of the self righteous house managers squad-there’s that word again. The question still that still lingers in my mind is why are all democrat women so butt ugly?
