Grassfire received an email from the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) yesterday afternoon. His staff wanted us to know that the impeachment trial of President Trump will reconvene at 1:00 p.m. ET today and that McConnell "will offer an Organizing Resolution to set the parameters for the initial (phase 1) proceedings."
The email added that the resolution "will be largely based on the 'Clinton model' that was adopted 100-0 at the start of the Clinton impeachment trial in 1999." However, Democrats have been complaining for weeks about McConnell's plan to use the same parameters from 21 years ago.
Days before Christmas, the Senate leader told FOX News, "Let’s handle this case just like we did with President Clinton. Fair is fair." But according to McConnell's office, "What unanimously worked for the entire Senate in 1999 is apparently not satisfactory for Democrats."
So expect the next few days to bring on more temper tantrums from the likes of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and their allies in the "Fake News" media. Expect them to whine vociferously about the need to call witnesses that the House was too rushed, lazy or incompetent to call.
In 1999, Democrats insisted no additional witnesses were needed in the Clinton impeachment trial. But with so much T.D.S. (Trump Derangement Syndrome) infecting the Left in 2020, expect to hear lots of angry tantrums when the Senate refuses to do what the House could have done, but didn't.
+ + TAKE ACTION: Call On Senators To Stand With Trump And End The Impeachment Trial!
As we reported yesterday, the current party affiliation in the Senate is 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats and two Independents. So it's not likely that 67 Senators -- as required by the Constitution -- will vote to convict the President. But only a simple majority of 51 Senators is needed to set some of the trial rules, including whether or not witnesses can be called.
If just four RINOs vote with Democrats, they could derail Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) efforts to move the trial along quickly. Democrats might get their way and prolong the baseless and highly partisan impeachment-inquiry Witch Hunt against the President.
Senate Republicans MUST stand with Mr. Trump at this critical time to end the trial as soon as possible. That's why Grassfire has compiled a list of 16 GOP Senators who could "waffle" on impeachment. Among them are Lamar Alexander (TN), Susan Collins (ME), Lisa Murkowski (AK) and Mitt Romney (UT). Those four RINOs could cast swing votes that help Democrats and harm our Commander-in-Chief.
We've also identified three key Senate Democrats who might vote AGAINST impeachment: Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), Doug Jones (AL) and Joe Manchin (WV). You can fax them, your two Senators and the 16 GOP "wafflers" for just $15.
