Twitler grabbed Lamar Alexander by the pussy. “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
No witnesses, no evidence. So says Lamar Alexander, shithead of Tennessee. In a contrived series of tweets, he announced that he will be voting against additional witnesses and evidence, even though he is convinced that Twitler did exactly what the House managers said he did. Of course, we know the fix is in. The question is why. Here’s my theory:
Why are the Rethugs so uncomfortable with a President Mike Pence? You would think they’d rather have him than a tweeting maniac who terrifies them. That makes me wonder exactly what John Bolton might testify to. Perhaps that Pence L. Dick was up to his neck in the Ukraine scheme? If that’s true, maybe the Rethugs are really scared of a President Nancy Pelosi.
Anyhoo, Lamar will vote against witnesses and documents. Susan Collins announced she will vote yes, but we know that Concerned Susie would never do so unless Yertle McConnell assured her that it’s okay to do so, because he has enough chickenshit cult members to vote no.
From the DAILY BEAST:
Sen. Lamar Alexander came out firmly against calling more witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trial on Thursday night, declaring “no need for more evidence.”
“I worked with other senators to make sure that we have the right to ask for more documents and witnesses, but there is no need for more evidence to prove something that has already been proven and that does not meet the United States Constitution’s high bar for an impeachable offense,” Alexander said in a statement. Shortly before he announced his decision, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said she would vote in support of calling more witnesses. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) has also expressed support for calling witnesses, while Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AL), another key swing vote, has not yet announced her decision.
Even if Murkowski votes for witnesses, it won’t make any difference, because it’s not at all likely that any of the other dickless Rethugs would dare to vote in favor of witnesses.
