We know the fix is in. We know Susan Collins waited to call for witness until she knew there would be no witnesses called. We assumed it was about the GOP staying in power…
However, with facts dripping out on a daily basis, its becoming clear members of the GOP have had deep involvement in Trump’s corrupt scheme.
The blocking of witnesses prevents America from knowing the breadth and depth of this corrupt scheme. It prevents America from knowing which members of congress are involved, and how much they hid that from congress and the American people.
By preventing witnesses from testifying under oath, Trump and the GOP will dismiss any facts that come out as media-driven lies.
Murkowski has claimed that the trial cannot be fair, thus she is voting to not have witnesses come forward. It is the senate and the GOP that is controlling the trial, and they are saying they cannot do their job. If Murkowski cannot do her job of ensuring a fair trial in the Senate, she should resign immediately.
The GOP has already accepted and admitted that Trump was involved in a corrupt solicitation of a bribe. They want to limit the spotlight to Trump. The only way they can do that is by blocking witnesses from coming forward and telling their story.
