The two moderate Republicans that Democrats are hoping to win over just dropped a bombshell on Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA).
Schiff had asserted that GOP Senators had been told, “Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.”
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) and Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) both responded saying, “That’s not true” and “That’s where he lost me.”
Both Collins and Murkowski are critical to Democrat hopes of bringing in new witnesses in the trial. The only way to break the GOP stranglehold on the Senate is to bring over the moderates.
Now Adam Schiff, who is the head impeachment manager, has lost both those Senators.
Schiff was a poor choice by Democrats to manage impeachment. He has destroyed all trust anyone had in him with his constant lies. Without moderate Republican support, impeachment is finished.
