ABC Reporter Observes 'Downtrodden' Democrats in the Senate

The Democratic impeachment managers delivered their closing arguments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump on Monday, but it may have all been for nought. Their plan to prolong the trial appears to have failed. Last week the senators-turned-jurors voted down additional witnesses 51-49, meaning that they are going to get right down to business and vote to acquit or convict President Trump. With the trial winding down, the media have noticed dozens of dejected Democrats walking the halls.

"Everyone is increasingly resigned to the outcome here," observed ABC News Senior Congressional Correspondent reporter Mary Bruce on Monday.

"They feel beat down by the fact that despite the intense argument that they have put forth it doesn't seem to have moved the needle whatsoever," she added.

That didn't stop Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) from claiming President Trump was guilty of extortion when he withheld military aid from Ukraine, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) from declaring "America's national security is for sale," or lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) from predicting that Trump "will continue to seek foreign interference in the next election" if they don't remove him now, in their closing arguments.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced last week that the final vote on the articles of impeachment, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, will take place Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.
