It’s a bad sign for the Democrats when even their pals at CNN are admitting they failed.
CNN’s chief legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin, was very clear when he described the Democrats’ efforts to impeach President Donald Trump as a clear political defeat. “Trump won,” Toobin readily admitted to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, according to The Hill. “I mean, you know he’s gonna win this trial. He won on the issue of witnesses.”
But Toobin, a vocal critic of Trump, continued to twist the knife.
“He’s going to get acquitted, and that’s how history will remember what went on here,” Toobin said.
A motion to allow additional witnesses in the President Trump’s impeachment trial failed to pass in the Republican-controlled Senate by a vote of 49–51 on Friday.
This means the trial could wrap up as soon as this week.
For his part, President Trump has called the Democrats’ impeachment effort a “hoax,” a notion he reiterated in a tweet Sunday.
The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, don’t want justice when pushing the Impeachment Hoax, they only want to destabilize the Republican Party so they can do better in the 2020 election, & that includes the House & Senate. They are playing with the people by taking it this far!
