Day 1107


(Matt Kiser) #1

What happened today? The Senate voted to block new new witnesses in Trump’s impeachment trial after Republicans argued new testimony is unnecessary. The 49 to 51 vote ensures the trial will be the first impeachment in U.S. history without witnesses. Two GOP lawmakers — Susan Collins and Mitt Romney — broke ranks and voted with Democrats on the motion to call new witnesses. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called the failed motion “a grand tragedy.” Earlier in the day, Republicans and Trump’s legal team argued that new witnesses and documents would prolong the trial for weeks or months despite a Democratic proposal to limit depositions to one week. Immediately before the vote, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff warned Republican senators that “The facts will come out.”
