Game Over: Key GOP Senator Will Vote 'No' On New Trump Impeachment Witnesses

Well, that’s the ballgame on new witnesses, folks. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) had said he would announce his decision on whether he would stain the integrity of the Senate by supporting an unprecedented push for new witnesses in the shoddy and hyper-partisan impeachment push against Donald Trump that’s been executed by congressional Democrats. D.C. has been engulfed by this circus and Alexander was a key vote in whether this soft coup attempt would continue. He finally announced late Thursday night that he’s not going to entertain keeping this circus going any longer.

"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.

"The Constitution does not give the Senate the power to remove the president from office and ban him from this year’s ballot simply for actions that are inappropriate," he added.

Alexander is retiring after the conclusion of this current term. Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) remain wild cards. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) will be supporting the Democrats’ plot to keep the Senate from doing the work of governing the country. Even if Romney and Murkowski side with Democrats, which is possible because they're weak liberal RINOs, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell still has to votes to block this Democratic push in this impeachment effort.

Sen. Alexander's statement was shared on Twitter in a lengthy thread:

And this part of Alexander's statement captures why this impeachment effort must not succeed.

If this shallow, hurried and wholly partisan impeachment were to succeed, it would rip the country apart, pouring gasoline on the fire of cultural divisions that already exist. It would create the weapon of perpetual impeachment to be used against future presidents whenever the House of Representatives is of a different political party.

Democrats still cannot get over the 2016 election. They pushed us to this and perverted our institutions in the process.
