Impeachment Being Dragged Out? Not
According to Lindsey Graham

Despite ongoing demands for new witness testimony during President Trump's impeachment trial, testimony House managers refused to compel before transmitting articles to the upper chamber earlier this month, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Graham is confident the entire process will be over by Friday. "I'm increasingly optimistic this ends Friday. I think the question is whether we should have additional testimony from witnesses that the House refused to call. Lets assume for a moment that John Bolton would say what the New York Times said he would say, 'The President told me to put a freeze on the aid because I want to look at the Bidens.' I'm paraphrasing.

Yet, there is a video clip (in 2012/2013) of Joe Biden bragging that a Ukrainian prosecutor was fired over this matter? I will say to all of you naysayers: is this how Ukraine should be handled? I think it is disgusting that influential people from the United States (the Vice President at the time) can yield so much power over a country like that to get a prosecutor fired from his position. Don't you get that Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, or Mitt Romney? This impeachment sham needs to end.

Imagine you are Bolton for a moment. Someone said something was in your book that causes sales to skyrocket. If that was not in your book you are not the one who said it was, just shut the hell up, sit back and let the orders flow in. If it is in your book there is no point in hiding from it why not confirm it and sell more books? The entire situation has layers of nothingness. If Trump said what they(NYT & Leaker) say Bolton said he said (breathe here) it is at worst a thought that was never acted out. Not even a thought crime because had it been acted upon, it still wouldn't be a crime. There is abundant evidence that Biden's committed crimes and to not investigate is wrong. Furthermore to hand aid to a corrupt government violates the law. The absurdity of this entire circus is simply astounding. If we can impeach a President because someone said someone said he thought about something we are flat out done as a nation. That is precisely what is happening.

If they're going to have witnesses, I like Molly Hemingway's suggestion. House Democrats chose 18 witnesses and allowed Republicans none. Now it's the Senate Republicans turn.

I agree that this will end Friday. The Democrat Senators running for president want this over with and the Republicans want it over with before the State of the Union. The Dems don't want the Bidens and whistle blower called. The outcome of this is known and each side wants to get this over with.

Yet another who studiously ignores public opinion. Seriously, we need to make it so painfully obvious to these people that we are sick to death of their hatred of us. If we cannot clean this rot out with Trump, then we deserve what is coming if we do not. But then what can we expect from McCain's little buddy, and democrat at heart? He and McCain only switched party registration to republican to ride Reagan's coattails into the senate. They have stayed democrat at heart ever since.

If Lindsey wanted witnesses, he should have put them in front of his Senate Committee years ago. He talks big,and may convince many that he is a Conservative, but when it's time to act, good luck finding him. I for one, am tired of being jerked around by this pantywaist.

Most presidents talk occasionally about doing things they later abandon after greater thought. After the Chinese crossed the Yalu River, Harry Truman was so angry he told his aides he wanted to bomb them back to the stone age. Bolton's revelation is a nothing burger.

There’s a reason Mitch McConnell has been Senate Majority Leader for the past 13 years: He gets the job done. And the biggest part of that job is keeping the GOP caucus, however necessary. At this point, he appears to have pulled off the feat once again. On Wednesday, McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) — always a wavering and unreliable GOP vote — met in the morning. After that meeting, The Hill reported, it was clear “that the question of having additional witnesses is settled, and the Senate will vote Friday to wrap up the impeachment trial of President Trump.”

This is a winning strategy. Joe Biden, 77, told an Iowa crowd that he needs a strong Vice President because he’s old and may die in office. “Whomever I pick” for VP, must “be capable of being president, because I’m an old guy — no I’m serious!” Biden said. Cringe. Biden also said there’s “8 women and least 4 or 5 people of color” that he believes are “totally qualified” to be his vice president. Old Joe also said earlier this week that he would like to have Michelle Obama has his running mate.

The Mexican government announced it has so far deported more than 2,000 members of the latest migrant caravan, demonstrating the seriousness of the country’s newfound enforcement of illegal immigration. Mexico deported roughly 2,303 Honduran migrants between Jan. 18 and Jan. 27, the National Migration Institute — the department in Mexico that manages immigration — reported Monday. The Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C.,-based immigration think tank, translated and flagged the recent numbers. The deportations pertained to the most recent U.S.-bound migrant caravan.

Josh Hawley (R-MO) weighed in on the possibility of some Senate Democrats voting along with Republicans to acquit President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial currently underway. Hawley told FNC’s Tucker Carlson the case falling apart and pointed to the shifting of the claims of wrongdoing by the House managers. “I think it is very possible, Tucker,” he said. “I think what it tells you is they just don’t have the case.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) launched a new digital campaign ad and a fundraiser on Tuesday in response to CNN’s Don Lemon mocking Trump supporters during a segment on his show that went viral on Monday night. The segment, which was from late on Saturday night, went largely unnoticed until Monday night when a former CNN employee tweeted out the clip, which quickly got a response from President Donald Trump and other top figures. The segment featured Lemon, far-left op-ed writer Wajahat Ali, and anti-Trump establishment Republican Rick Wilson who mocked Trump supporters as being uneducated rednecks who could not read, spell, or use maps.

The number of Republican women who have filed for 2020 “shatters all previous records,” National Republican Congressional Committee communications director Chris Pack told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Whatever the protestations of John Bolton as to who is leaking what to whom, the fact remains that Bolton has written a ‘tell-all’ book about his experiences as President Trump’s National Security Advisor, with the intent to release the book in the year Trump is running for re-election. It’s not easy to engage in behavior that is both petty and despicable at the same time, but Bolton has done it. He has made himself into the poster child for an off-the-charts arrogant ruling class that an increasingly large portion of Americans (maybe 63 million and counting?) are absolutely seething about.

Mahatma Gandhi, who was just a teenager at the time, hadn’t told his parents where he was going; if they had found out, they would have been shocked to death.

On impeachment, Mitt Romney has thrown a spanner in the works. What looked like a speedy scrapping of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, premised on Democrats beclowning themselves, is now on hold. Romney says that John Bolton's "bombshell" about a supposed Ukrainian aid-for-investigation quid pro quo is so significant it merits calling Bolton as a witness in the Senate impeachment trial, just as Democrats have been calling for, though not enough to call him in at the House. According to the Associated Press: WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s Mitt Romney’s big moment, again. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has for a year been a

You’ve got to hand it to the Democrats -- they can hold their caucus together for the flimsiest of causes. The GOP, though, has all these RINOs who have to establish their independence; they’re willing to break party unity when it serves their own ambitions. Three senators – Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Mitt Romney of Utah – are rumored to be willing for witnesses to be called in the impeachment trial now underway in the Senate. Obviously, such a slowdown benefits the Democrats, who want the impeachment to headline news reports as long as possible.

Mitch McConnell set up the rules for the Senate’s current impeachment hearing so that there would be an early vote on whether to call witnesses, or simply proceed to an up or down vote on impeachment. Either way, the result is foreordained, just as the impeachment process itself was foreordained when the Democrats captured the House in 2018. The president will be exonerated. The vote on whether to proceed with witnesses apparently will take place on Friday. I assume that McConnell thought it would be easy to get 51 votes in favor of terminating the Senate proceeding, but John Bolton’s ill-timed and ill-advised tell-all book
