DC in Dissaray, Even Trump’s Lawyers Could Be in Trouble, “Repubs Who Don’t Vote for Witnesses Are Co-Conspirators”

DC in Dissaray, Even Trump's Lawyers Could Be in Trouble, "Repubs Who Don't Vote for Witnesses Are Co-Conspirators"


Now that the New York Times has the breaking news that Bolton’s manuscript affirms that Trump withheld Ukrainian aid until the Ukrainians investigated Democrats and the Bidens, official Washington DC has no idea what this will week will bring.

First, the headline:

The Senate is supposed to vote this week, on whether the trial should involve witnesses and documents:

There are serious questions about who leaked the story to the Times and why:

Now powerful ethical questions might be asked of Trump’s own lawyers – who could possibly be in very serious, perhaps criminal, trouble:

Rick Wilson – per usual – nails the summation:

I do not know how Republicans now avoid voting to hear from witnesses. McConnell tried to run out the clock, and didn’t quite make it. As it now stands, the Defense argument has been that there was no direct evidence of the crime.

The direct evidence is now on the front page of the New York Times.

I don’t know how they’ll avoid hearing from the witnesses, and I don’t know how Republicans will avoid voting Trump out of office, I am nearly certain that Republicans will do both. But they’ll have a much much harder time than it looked like just this morning.

This will be an interesting week.

And the Washington Post reporter on Kasie DC just said “and there is a lot more about to come out.”

****

Peace, y’all
