As It was originally assumed before the impeachment trial of the president, it looks like an acquittal will happen in a trial with no witnesses. I talked with Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) on the matter.
With tonight’s defeat of motions for docs/witnesses, the “trial” is now officially a coverup. The Senate failed its responsibility & endorsed an imperial presidency immune from accountability by indictments, investigations, or impeachment. A tragedy for our Constitution & America— Senator Jeff Merkley (@SenJeffMerkley) February 1, 2020
