On Tuesday, Senate Republicans failed the American people. Mitch McConnell released word that the GOP lacks the votes to block impeachment witnesses. I know some on the Republican side that are split on this, but let me explain why this is an issue.
If the Democrats have such a perfect and obvious case, why is there a need for witnesses who were not part of the House trial? The Democrats continue to say they completed a full and complete investigation. If that is the case, nothing that Bolton may have to say would change the outcome in the trial. Right?
Yet, here we are in a situation where Republican senators cannot get behind their party or their president. House Republicans had no issues doing this. They understand that people elected them to their office to do a job. That job was not to waste time on a partisan process. Remember, there is not one single Republican that has supported any part of this process from the beginning.
Those Senators who are wavering need a reality check. There is a larger picture here. Democrats held these impeachment articles in hopes that more news would come out. They want to force Republicans to take witnesses in this case. Witnesses that were never called in the House.
Democrats have claimed throughout that there is enough evidence to impeach President Trump. Yet, they continue to push for more. But I thought the case was clear and the evidence was enough to impeach? Not if you are these Democrats, because they never had any evidence in the first place. But these Republicans are too ignorant to see this.
The second thing that Republicans fail to consider here is that everyone knew John Bolton would do this to President Trump. It was suggested back as part of the impeachment proceedings in the House that Bolton may have new information. But no one pushed for that information. This is exactly what everyone should expect!
John Bolton has no loyalty to President Trump or a political party, especially after his embarrassing ouster from his post. Bolton was a warmonger who wants nothing but to go to war with Iran. Remember his famous press conference with the notes visible about troops to Venezuela? That was no accident either. Bolton wants and pushes for war. He pushed Trump, but Trump is not a man to take those actions lightly.
Now everyone wants to act surprised that Bolton is doing this to President Trump. No one should be surprised by his actions. He was going to turn on Trump. He will turn his attention to anyone who will pay him attention. It’s also a great book sales technique to say there’s information there as well. I’m sure it will help him sell millions of copies to Democrats.
I agree with Republican calls for Bolton to release pieces of his book to clear this up quickly. There’s no need for testimony when he can simply place a copy of his book for them to read in a secure area. The American people are ready to move on. This partisan process has taken enough of our time, but it appears some ignorant Republican Senators are too blind to see.
