BREAKING: GOP Has the Votes to Block Witnesses and End Trial

It is game over in the Senate chamber for President Trump's impeachment trial. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) put the nail in the coffin of the Democrats' lazy, political, hyper-partisan impeachment attempt. The debate at hand was over calling additional witnesses to the Senate chamber. It was unclear whether or not Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had the votes to block the Democrats' attempt to compel these additional witnesses, mainly former National Security Advisor John Bolton.

After much speculation, Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced that they would indeed vote to hear from more witnesses. The late-night surprise was from Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-LA) Thursday night, when he announced that he would not support additional witnesses. 

The last unknown GOP vote was Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). She announced early Friday afternoon that she will vote no on additional witnesses. 

This ensures that Leader McConnell will be able to block additional witnesses, and that this long, painful, boring impeachment trial is finally coming to a close. Sen. Murkowski also ripped the effort by the Democrats to demonize Chief Justice John Roberts, and label him as a partisan.

The Senate will finally be able to get back to doing the legislative work that matters, for the American people.
