Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK, pictured at top) will not support new witnesses in the impeachment trial.
Murkowski’s vote against new witnesses ensures Republicans will be able to block all new witnesses in a 51-49 vote and move to acquit President Trump.
“The House chose to send articles of impeachment that are rushed and flawed. I carefully considered the need for additional witnesses and documents, to cure the shortcomings of its process, but ultimately decided that I will vote against considering motions to subpoena,” the Alaska Republican said in a statement.
The Senate however, is reportedly extending the trial into next Wednesday.
The State of the Union Address is scheduled for next Tuesday so the senate is purposely pushing the president’s acquittal until after the SOTU address!
