GOP Senator Calls For 2020 Dems To Recuse Themselves From Trial

A Republican senator is calling for the four Democrats who are still in the presidential race to recuse themselves from the upcoming Senate impeachment trial. 

Pointing out their “unparalleled political interest in seeing this President removed from office,” Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee released a statement calling for the recusal from the quartet who would greatly benefit from not having to face a powerful incumbent. 

Blackburn wants Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar and Michael Bennett to do the honorable thing, admit their extreme bias and withdraw from the trial. 

URGENT POLL: Do you support Trump against Dem impeachment efforts?

While Klobucar and Bennett have zero chance of winning the nomination, both Sanders and Warren have repeatedly attacked President Trump as a racist, a Russian pawn and have openly advocated for his removal long before the articles of impeachment were voted on. 

Via The Hill, “GOP senator: 2020 candidates must recuse themselves from impeachment trial”:

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) said on Wednesday that Democratic senators running for the party’s 2020 nomination should recuse themselves from taking part in President Trump’s impeachment trial.

“Tomorrow, one hundred United States Senators will be sworn in to serve in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Four of those Senators must recuse themselves for their unparalleled political interest in seeing this President removed from office,” Blackburn said in a statement.

She added that Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) “cannot sit in judgment of the very President they seek to replace.”

There is virtually no chance that the Dems would do such a thing although the idea that the conniving Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment delay was undertaken to hurt Bernie’s 2020 hopes by keeping him off the campaign trail is gaining traction with his supporters. 

According to Senator Blackburn’s statement:

Tomorrow, one hundred United States Senators will be sworn in to serve in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Four of those Senators must recuse themselves for their unparalleled political interest in seeing this President removed from office.

These four Democrats, Senators Bennet, Klobuchar, Sanders, and Warren, cannot sit in judgment of the very President they seek to replace. To participate in this trial would be a failure of the oath they took to be an ‘impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws’. Their presidential ambitions prohibit their ability to view this trial through an objective lens.

Following weeks of delays by Pelosi, in a cheerful ceremony on Wednesday, the articles of impeachment were signed off and in a staged spectacle for the media, she and her managers paraded across the Capitol to formally present the articles to the Senate. 

On Thursday, senators and Chief Justice John Roberts will be sworn in with the trial expected to commence early next week and to last for a still undetermined period of time – perhaps long enough to keep Bernie out of Iowa and put a thumb on the scale for Joe Biden. 

Barring any surprises from Mitt Romney and his pack of Never Trumpers, the trial isn’t likely to remove Trump from the 2020 equation although that may not be the case with Sanders who has now also become a target of the establishment.

BREAKING: Comey Now Center of Investigation for Illegal Leaks

According to a bombshell New York Times report, the Justice Department is now investigating fired FBI Director James Comey for illegally leaking information regarding Russia to the media.

Check out what Fox News reported:

The new review, which the Times downplayed as a possibly politically motivated probe, reportedly concerned a Russian intelligence document “claiming a tacit understanding between the Clinton campaign and the [Obama] Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server,” as the Post described it in May 2017.

Dutch intelligence accessed the document on Russian computers and provided it to the FBI. Included in the document was a discussion between Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., then the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, and Leonard Benardo, who worked with the George Soros-founded group Open Society Foundations.

Schultz told Benardo in the document that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch would ensure Clinton was not prosecuted in the email probe.

The two have denied the conversation, and citing “people familiar with its contents,” the Post reported in 2017 that the document “has long been viewed within the FBI as unreliable and possibly a fake” by Russians.

It appears that Comey may now be one of those “persons familiar with” the contents in the documents according to the New York Times.

This key document was important when it came to Comey’s announcement in 2016 that no “reasonable prosecutor” would charge Hillary Clinton. According to the New York Times, Comey was scared that Russia might leak the email which would undermine his investigation.

Fox News continues:

Daniel Richman, a Columbia Law School professor and longtime Comey friend who helped him leak memos of private conversations with President Trump that ultimately led to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment, was quoted in the Times’ 2017 article describing the Russian document.

The DOJ decided last year against prosecuting Comey for leaking classified information following a referral from the department’s inspector general. The IG did find, however, that Comey had violated FBI policy in his handling of the memos, which contained the “code name and true identity” of a sensitive source.

“Everyone at the DOJ involved in the decision said it wasn’t a close call,” one official told Fox News at the time. “They all thought this could not be prosecuted.”

Sources familiar with Daniel Richman’s status at the FBI told Fox News that he was assigned to “special projects” by Comey, and had a security clearance as well as badge access to the building.

Comey penned memos memorializing his interactions with Trump in the days leading up to his firing. He then passed those documents to Richman, who gave them to The New York Times. Comey admitted to that arrangement during congressional testimony.

After the fact, the FBI classified two of those memos as “confidential.”

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz had referred Comey for potential prosecution as part of an internal review.

But, one of the key factors leading to the DOJ declining to prosecute apparently was the fact that the two memos were labeled “confidential” after he set in motion the chain of events that led to them ending up with the press.

Trump, for his part, has called Comey corrupt repeatedly, saying his termination was justified.

Comey’s former deputy at the FBI, Andrew McCabe, has admitted he lied to investigators about his own leaks to the media.

Rand Paul Trolls Schiff As Senate Trial Heats Up

As the Senate impeachment trial kicked off on Thursday, Republican Senator Rand Paul decided to troll far-left California congressman Adam Schiff who led a highly partisan impeachment inquiry in the House.

“An anonymous ‘whistleblower’ informs us that this was found in a hotel room that [Rep. Adam Schiff] recently check out of. Hmmm…,” Paul tweeted with a photo of a fake note that read, “Things to do. Remember to tap Devin Nunes phone.”

Check it out:

Back in December the House Intelligence committee led by Adam Schiff “released a report on the impeachment inquiry which included records of calls from Nunes, presidential lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, journalist John Solomon, Fox News host Sean Hannity, a Giuliani connection Lev Parnas, and other White House associates,” Fox News said. “Schiff subpoenaed both AT&T and Verizon for the information. The act has sent a chill among Republicans concerned about the chairman’s reach.”

Nunes punched back during an interview with Fox News.

“They have now set a precedent where Adam Schiff can go get any phone number he has to AT&T and AT&T is going to comply,” Nunes said at the time.

**Piss Off Democrats With Your FREE Betsy Ross Flag***

“If you look at what he did then, it’s not just the president’s phone records — okay — or the president’s lawyer’s phone records, he also was able to get a journalist who they hate … who they say is a conspiracy theorist,” Nunes added. “And, he was able to figure out that that was John Solomon’s phone number.”

“Then, he was able to get my number, right? And, because I had talked to Rudy Giuliani and somehow that’s now a crime, and then I make it into his report,” the congressman continued.

“And, we have to remember … we spent the last three years, at first if any Republican ever talked to any Russian at any time — even if you are Russian-American — that was a no-no. Then we were criticized,” Nunes said. “We switched to Ukraine. If you talk to any Ukrainian that’s now a crime. Now, I can’t even talk to Rudy Giuliani who I have known for 10 years. That’s supposedly a crime.”

Check out what the Daily Wire noted:

Spokesman for Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee Patrick Boland told The Daily Beast that investigators “did not subpoena call records for any member of Congress or their staff … or for any journalist.”

“Any questions about the fact that Members, congressional staff, or journalists appear in call records released by the Committee should be directed at those individuals, who were in contact with individuals of investigative interest to the impeachment inquiry,” Boland said.

On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi named Schiff as one of the seven individuals to serve as House managers during the Senate impeachment trial.

“I’m humbled by the solemn responsibility of serving as lead House Manager in the Senate impeachment trial,” Schiff posted Wednesday. “Together, the Managers will work on behalf of the American people in defense of our Constitution. The House upheld our Constitutional duty. The Senate must do the same.”

Mitch McConnell Trolls Pelosi After She Makes Impeachment Pens

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell trolled far-left Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi after she had her giddy impeachment articles signing party.

While senators were signing in for the Senate impeachment trial, McConnell had them sign in with only one pen, an obvious troll on the Speaker of the House considering she used a new impeachment pen for each signature when signing the articles of impeachment.

“McConnell had each senator sign the oath book with a single pen, a day after Pelosi came under fire for smiling and handing out special pens to members following the signing of the articles of impeachment,” the Daily Caller reports. “This is in contrast to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, where each senator signed the book with a different pen.”

Twitter reporters quickly took notice of the troll.

“No souvenir pens here. Called up in alphabetical order, each Senator uses the same pen to sign the Oath Book,” tweeted Mark Knoller.

Check out what some other reporters noted:

Speaker of the House Pelosi has constantly tried to convince the American people that she is “sad” and “somber” about impeachment however her actions say differently.

While signing the articles of impeachment to send over to the Senate, Pelosi gave a big smile and passed out impeachment pens.

“So sad, so tragic for our country that the actions taken by the president undermined our national security, to violate his oath of office, and to jeopardize the security of our elections, the integrity of our elections, has taken us to this place,” Pelosi said. “So, today we will make history when the managers walk down the hallway, we will cross a threshold in history, delivering articles of impeachment against the President of the United States for abuse of power and obstruction of the House.”

WATCH the clip below:

Pelosi continued: “Yes, it is a fact: When someone is impeached, they are always impeached. It cannot be erased. So I stand by that comment, although I know you don’t like hearing it.”

Many people including some on the left, took the opportunity to slam the Speaker.

CNN reporter Lauren Fox took wrote, “So many pens that Pelosi will sign to officially transmit the articles of impeachment and sign resolution appointing House managers. Why so many? They will be given away to members like House managers as a symbol of today.”

**Piss Off Democrats With Your FREE Betsy Ross Flag***

Rep. Mark Meadows also hammered the Speaker, saying, “They claim it’s a somber, serious occasion they’re heartbroken over… and then they pass out impeachment-signing pens with special cases. Folks. You can’t make it up.”

Trump Reveals What He’ll Be Doing During Impeachment Trial

While the Democrats are busy wasting tax payer money on the impeachment for the “woke” crowd, the President of the United States is doing exactly what he did during the last phase of the impeachment circus.

He’s working.

From the Epoch Times:

President Donald Trump will travel to the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting during the Senate impeachment trial, a White House adviser said.

“That is the plan. The plan is for the president to go to Davos. He read the delegation, and he’s got a lot to talk about,” Kellyanne Conway, a top adviser to Trump, told reporters outside the White House in Washington on Thursday.

She said Trump is likely to “take on the perils of socialism right there in Davos and talk about what happens when you … recalibrate, rebalance these major trade deals.” She added that “a lot of the world’s economy can exhale now that China and the U.S. have completed phase one of the trade deal.”

So while the Democrats are wasting resources enacting their doomed sinister plot against the duly elected leader of the free world, the President is still out there getting it done.

And he doesn’t appear to be sweating it at all.

From The Hill:

Gidley said that Trump is “absolutely” comfortable traveling out of the country while his trial is taking place.

“You’ve seen what the president has been able to do while the House is doing its best to play politics and ignore the needs of the American people,” Gidley said.

“The president is focused on doing his job, focused on making the lives of all Americans better,” Gidley said, accusing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and other Democrats of focusing “on their own selfish political desires.”

The White House previously announced that the presidential delegation attending the annual economic forum in Davos from Jan. 20-24 would include White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and other top officials.

Trump himself is scheduled to attend between Jan. 21-22, according to The Associated Press.

So while Trump is making historic trade deals that make Americans wealthier, the Democrats are making historically bad decisions that are costing Americans millions.

From the Daily Signal:

The $3.06 million price tag for taxpayers of the formal impeachment inquiry so far includes the salaries of 106 congressional employees who largely didn’t attend to normal duties from September through December. 

It also includes the estimated hourly fees of six lawyers of record for witnesses who appeared during hearings, whether behind closed doors or public.

The total likely is a low estimate because it does not factor in overtime hours for U.S. Capitol Police when House hearings ran well into the late evening. The total also doesn’t include the cost of executive branch expenses, travel costs for witnesses, or supplies and materials. 

Not too surprising, unfortunately.

But our president is taking it all in stride, just like he did during the House phase of the impeachment farce, during which he was also actually WORKING.

Reporters even hounded him during his meeting with Turkish President Erdogan at the White House about the impeachment, what he thought about the impeachment, blah, blah, blah.

You can see his response below (as the Turkish president beside him wondered why no one cared to ask questions about their meeting):

I did not watch it. I’m too busy to watch it, it’s a witch hunt, it’s a hoax. I’m too busy to watch it. So, I’m sure I’ll get a report. There’s nothing (gets interrupted by reporter)… I have not been briefed, no. There’s nothing there. I see they’re using lawyers that are television lawyers. They took some guys off television, you know. I’m not surprised to see it because Schiff can’t do his own questions. Thank you very much, everybody.

So let’s hope President Trump keeps working for Americans and the Democrats keep doing what will get them ousted in 2020.

‘Morning Joe’ Shreds Warren, Says She is Lying

On Thursday, MSNBC Morning Joe show host Mika Brzezinski hammered Senator Elizabeth Warren over her claim that Senator Bernie Sanders said a sexist comment to her back in 2018.

Warren and Sanders have been butting heads after CNN released a report claiming that during an alliance meeting, Sanders allegedly said that a woman could not be president. While Sanders denies the claims, Warren says they are true.

Brzezinski is taking Sanders’ side considering she made it clear that she thinks Warren is lying.

“Oh, you mean the sound of what they actually were saying when she would not shake his hand after they fought about something she decided to thrust into this election weeks before Iowa that makes her look brittle and completely weak after she’s had a robust campaign where she looked like a happy warrior who really had this all in control, and then this happens?” Brzezinski said during the show.

“I don’t know what happened there, but somebody’s not telling the truth, and I have a bad feeling it might be the accuser,” Brzezinski continued as she eluded that Warren may have been the “source” that leaked the story to CNN.

WATCH the clip below:

Conservative show co-host Meghan McCain has a different opinion on the ongoing feud between the two senators.

While speaking on “The View,” McCain said that Sanders’ “supporters have a bad reputation—meaning the ‘Bernie bros.’”

“It’s actually one of the few things that really connects liberal pundits and conservative female pundits together is just a level of misogyny—look at Twitter, and some of the accounts they do—directed towards specifically women, women in politics, and women in political commentary,” said McCain. “I’m sure I’ll have my Twitter lit up on fire because of this, but he has a problem with women.”

The CNN report reveals that the two candidates met in 2018 to discuss their game plan for the 2020 election and how they would remain allies no matter how tight the race because. At the time according to CNN, Sanders told Senator Warren that a woman couldn’t become president in 2020.

“The two agreed that if they ultimately faced each other as presidential candidates, they should remain civil and avoid attacking one another, so as not to hurt the progressive movement,” reports CNN. “They also discussed how to best take on President Donald Trump, and Warren laid out two main reasons she believed she would be a strong candidate: She could make a robust argument about the economy and earn broad support from female voters.”

***The Best Looking Trump Beanie On The Planet – YOURS FREE***

“Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win,” the report also noted.

According to CNN, four sources have confirmed that Sanders had made these comments.

“That evening, Sanders expressed frustration at what he saw as a growing focus among Democrats on identity politics, according to one of the people familiar with the conversation,” the report added. “Warren told Sanders she disagreed with his assessment that a woman could not win, three of the four sources said.”

Republican Senator Slams CNN Reporter: ‘You’re A Liberal Hack’

Social media was treated to quite a confrontation when a Republican Senator lashed out at a CNN reporter, calling him a “liberal hack” to his face when he asked a particular question.

It was former fighter pilot turned senator, Martha McSally, who was questioned by CNN reporter, Manu Raju. He asked her about the Senate considering any new evidence in the pending impeachment trial. His particular question revolved around information being shared by controversial figure Lev Parnas who faces his own legal battle and is now revealing unproven information in which people believe he’s merely trying to self serve.

The situation with McSally and Raju happened as she was walking and he tried to pry an answer out of her about the above topic. She refused to answer his question, but instead gave him an answer he may not have desired.

Her response to his question:

“Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not going to talk to you” 

He pressed again, then she doubled down calling him a “liberal hack” once more before heading behind a closed door and leaving him behind.

This is where it gets even more interesting.

Manu Raju posted about the exchange on Twitter. He said the following:

Sen. Martha McSally, a Republican facing a difficult election race, lashed out when I asked if she would consider new evidence as part of the Senate trial. “You’re a liberal hack – I’m not talking to you. You’re a liberal hack.” She then walked into a hearing room.

This is where McSally steps in again, responding to his post and posting the video for all to see.

She said, “A) you are. B) here’s the video.”

The response to her message has been entertaining, as this type of political drama is what people really enjoy on social media. Some people even donated to her after seeing how the former combat pilot responded to CNN’s reporter.

McConnell Is Not Playing: Lawmakers Will Be Imprisoned If They Break This 1 Rule

Do not mess with Mitch McConnell, for he has been in the business for a long time and he will not sanction shenanigans or sideshows.

Politicians who think they can use the Senate Impeachment trial to make lucrative media interviews will find that they could actually be imprisoned if they play hooky with their “non-partisan” duty, according to the Wall Street Journal.

They stated that “during the trial, all senators will be warned by the Sergeant at Arms to remain silent on ‘pain of imprisonment’ and will be expected to be present and seated at their assigned desks.”

So don’t think for a second that if presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) tries to make a political show out of the trial for publicity purposes that McConnell won’t make her pay dearly.

If she violates the rules on McConnell’s watch, she, and any of the other 4 presidential candidates can be arrested and jailed by the Sergeant at Arms.

And don’t think that McConnell wont’ do it, as he commands a foreboding respect even from the most liberal outlets.

NPR even focused on this respect in an article entitled Look At The Power Wielded By Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell based on an NPR interview with Kelley McEvers and host Ari Shapiro.

Although they refer to McConnell as “boring,” they also show a healthy respect to his experience and the fact that he remembers every detail, which can be a deadly political weapon:

McEvers: You know, there are a lot of people who still refer to Mitch McConnell as this institutionalist – right? – the man who knows every bit of history about the Senate, all the arcane rules. You know, Mitch McConnell is the rare senator who has never actually wanted to be president.

Regardless of your political views, McConnell is someone who is not to be trifled with, if for no other reason that he has been around for so long and knows all of the tricks in the bag.

And based on his extensive experience, he is incensed about this impeachment sham. Just look at what he thinks about it:

‘This is by far the thinnest basis for any House-passed presidential impeachment in American history… The prosecutors are getting cold feet in front of the entire country and second-guessing whether they even want to go to trial… It will be an unprecedented constitutional crisis if the Senate agrees to set the bar this low forever.’

And although the entire country knows the impeachment is a buffoonery, there still may be politicians that will try to make a last effort of theatrics to try to sway the sheep- luckily, the framers knew this and designed impeachment to be serious and sound.

From the Heritage Guide to the Constitution:

There are three special requirements for impeachment trials. The requirement that Senators be on Oath or Affirmation in impeachment trials was plainly designed to impress upon them the extreme seriousness of the occasion. The requirement for the Chief Justice to preside over presidential impeachment trials underscores the solemnity of the occasion and aims to avoid the possible conflict of interest of a Vice President’s presiding over the proceeding for the removal of the one official standing between him and the presidency. Moreover, the supermajority requirement was designed to facilitate serious deliberation and to make removal possible only through a consensus that cuts across factional divisions. This requirement’s impact is apparent in the fact that the Senate has convicted only seven of sixteen people impeached by the House. 

VOTE NOW: Is Trump Worthy Of A Second Term?

So no more tricks, Democrats, or Mitch will make sure you’ll be sitting in the stockades.

Greg Gutfeld Perfectly Summarizes Dem Debate in One Tweet

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidates took to the stage on Tuesday evening for a debate hosted by CNN.

The debate was pretty dull for the most part according to the New York Times as they stated the “sparks didn’t really fly.”

Although the debate was mostly quite boring, one tense moment came when Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders were asked questions about a sexist statement Sanders allegedly said to Warren back in 2018.

The way CNN worded the question clearly made it seem that they were on Warren’s side.

“So, Senator Sanders, I do want to be clear here; you’re saying that you never told Senator Warren that a woman could not win the election?” CNN host Abby Phillips questioned.

“That is correct,” Sanders replied.

Phillips then asked Warren, “Senator Warren, what did you think when Senator Sanders told you a woman could not win the election?”

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld decided to summarize the moment in a now viral tweet.

**Piss Off Democrats With Your FREE Betsy Ross Flag***

Take home notes:

-I’m no Sanders fan, but CNN totally knifed him, again.

-the real thinkers were missing on that stage

-the moderators were amateurs

-the candidates were bored by their own words

-trump will eat any of these alive.

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

The “real thinkers” referenced by Gutfeld are presumably Democratic candidate Andrew Yang, a former tech executive, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI). The two candidates fell short of qualifying for the debate stage, making Tuesday’s Democratic primary debate lacking racial diversity, something Democrats routinely tout.

And as far as Gutfeld’s prediction that Trump will “eat any of these” candidates “alive” in a general election, CNN and MSNBC moderators are seemingly in agreement. Post-debate left-wing analysts worried over which contender could beat Trump.

Even left-wing political commentator Van Jones called the debate “dispiriting.”

“I want to say that tonight for me was dispiriting,” Jones said after the debate on CNN. “Democrats will have to do better than we saw tonight. There was nothing I saw tonight to suggest we’ll be able to take Donald Trump out and I want to see a Democrat in the White House as soon as possible.”

“There was nothing tonight, if you’re looking at this thing, to say any of these people are prepared for what Donald Trump will do to us. And to see further divisions tonight is very dispiriting,” he added.


Impeachment witness and law professor Jonathan Turley also had a few things to say about the interaction between CNN, Sanders and Warren.

“CNN has long been viewed as anti-Sanders, but this is incredible,” Turley tweeted. “After asking Sanders to repeat his denial, Abby Phillips asserted that Sanders was lying: ‘Senator Warren, what did you think when Senator Sanders told you a woman could not win the election?’”

Ted Cruz Has New Idea that Would Force the Biden’s to Testify

During a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other leaders in the Senate, Senator Ted Cruz brought up an interesting idea that may force former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden to testify in the senate impeachment trial.

Cruz called the idea “witness reciprocity” and would basically allow GOP Senators to call on one witness for every witness that Democrat Senators called on.

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

Cruz brought up the idea during a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and GOP leaders, according to Fox News, which added that other people who might be called by the GOP include House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and the whistleblower who publicized a July phone call between Trump and the leader of Ukraine.

McConnell, who consulted with Cruz, senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, John Cornyn of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah regarding tactics for the impeachment trial, stated,“We’ll be dealing with the witness issue at the appropriate time into the trial. And I think it’s certainly appropriate to point out that both sides would want to call witnesses if they wanted to hear from them. So if you get to that issue, I can’t imagine that only the witnesses our Democratic colleagues want to call will be called.”

Donald Trump Jr. seemed to like the idea considering he tweeted, “I love @tedcruz’s plan of witness reciprocity. The American people want to hear from #wheresHunter Biden, #sleepyJoe Biden, #fullofschiff, the phony “whistleblower” etc. much more than they do anyone on our side especially since the house had free reign of witnesses for months.”

**Piss Off Democrats With Your FREE Betsy Ross Flag***

The Daily Wire continues:

A likely witness whom the Democrats would like to call would be former national security advisor John Bolton; three GOP senators, Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, have suggested they might be open to agreeing he should be called as a witness. With 53 senators in the Senate, the GOP needs every vote, as it requires a simple majority to win a motion in the Senate. President Trump told Fox News last week that he might invoke executive privilege so Bolton could not testify.

Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito weighed in on McConnell, saying, “He’s been around a long time. And he’s close to the vest. The thing he has on his radar screen is … 51 [votes]. Where can he get to 51? And no matter what his personal beliefs might be or how he feels about it. And I think that’s really the difficulty he has, trying to weave that.”

White House Director of Legislative Affairs Eric Ueland also commented, mentioning McConnell’s close ties with the President, noting, “They have a lot of conversations, and I don’t think there’s any problem between the two of them in terms of how their being crisp and clear with each other on the various priorities each has pulling together this trial process.”

Senator Roy Blunt agreed with McConnell’s position to wait on announcing the plans: “If I was him, I certainly wouldn’t disclose it because then Nancy Pelosi could say, ‘Oh, now that I’ve seen the rules, I’m not gonna send these [articles] over.’ Why throw your hand in when you’ve won the game?”
