Senate Republicans Block Witnesses In Trump’s Impeachment Trial
The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump will be the first such trial in U.S. history to feature no witness testimony after Senate Republicans voted on Friday against hearing from any of the firsthand witnesses to the president’s conduct.
Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives on Dec. 18 for withholding congressionally approved military aid from Ukraine in order to pressure the country into investigating a domestic political opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, and for refusing to cooperate with the House’s investigation into that action.

So are the Democrats. Obama was the oil president, and he enabled a massive plundering of the US economy. Also, the bipartisan foreign policy establishment is still brutalizing societies in the ME.
I don’t really care about the Ukraine crap. Their rationale — that delaying military ‘aid’ to Ukraine threatened our national security — is ludicrous on its face, to anyone with a genuine interest in US foreign policy goals in eastern Europe and the geopolitics of the region. It’s all part and parcel to western expansionism and aggression for profit against Russia. And, of course, revenge for defeating Her.
I want Trump defeated through elections, not by foreign policy bureaucrats.
