Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer melted down on Friday as impeachment against President Trump imploded.
McConnell will be holding a vote on additional witnesses Friday after closing arguments wrap up.
In a huge blow to Democrats, Senator Lamar Alexander announced Thursday night he will be voting against new witnesses, giving the Republicans a probable victory with a 50-50 tie.
Chief Justice Roberts is not expected to cast a tie-breaker vote, according to Republicans.
Once the witnesses are blocked, Republicans will move to acquit President Trump.
Schumer knows it’s over and he looked defeated and angry Friday morning.
Schumer wants to drag out the impeachment circus as long as possible so he wants every Senator to explain to the American public why they voted the way they did.
“I believe that the American people should hear what every Senator thinks and why they’re voting the way they’re voting. And we will do what we can to make sure that happens.”
It’s over, Cryin Chuck. Move on.
