Faced with acquitting their arch enemy, President Donald J. Trump, during the closing arguments of the fake Senate impeachment trial, entitled civil servants went wild. They extended their society style trial by agreeing to bring in new witnesses to testify to new charges on Saturday morning.
A storyline not favorable to taxpayer-funded politicians, who appear to have set a trap for Trump to not defend himself fully in the days leading up to the trial, leaked information to media and then employed social media to make noise about planted stories, emerged in shocking detail.
Last night left wing Twitter starting beating up the managers for not calling witnesses & this morning they caved
By a majority vote the Democrats can now force a trial where the House Managers get their witnesses & former President Trump gets none.
A complete farce

But how did the media get so worked up so fast?
5 Republicans joined the Democrats to demand an extension of the fake Impeachment trial. Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, Pat Toomey, Ben Sasse,and Lisa Murkowski. Graham later switched his vote.
See Leahy make the announcement:

“On the fifth day of former president Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, Senators voted 55-45 to hear witnesses, potentially extending the trial. On Friday, both House managers and Donald Trump’s legal team fielded questions from Senators after the former president’s defense team presented its case on his role in the January 6 assault on the US Capitol building. House impeachment managers presented their arguments against Trump on Wednesday and Thursday.”
“As of late yesterday afternoon, there was a stipulation going around that there weren’t going to be any witnesses,” van der Veen argued. “After what happened here in this chamber yesterday, the House managers realize they did not investigate this case before bringing the impeachment; they did not give the proper consideration and work. They didn’t put the work in that was necessary to impeach the former president.”
Raskin argued that Friday night, Rep. Jamie Herrera Beutler, R-Wash., issued a statement confirming that in the middle of the riots, when McCarthy called Trump to ask for help, and the president reportedly replied to him, “I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are.”
Speculation as to why McCarthy’s office would leak that information to the media and how it got to social media influencers quickly. That is how the left works, perfectly to shape public opinion.
“Needless to say, this is an additional critical piece of corroborating evidence, further confirming the charges before you as well as the president’s willful dereliction of duty and desertion of duty,” Raskin said.
The truth is Trump was about to be acquitted, so the left moved the goal post and on the spot invented new charges.
Trump’s attorney argued that Trump was not being tried on charges of dereliction and that if one witness would be called, “I’m going to need at least over 100 depositions, not just one” from people who were charged with rioting that Democrats claimed all blamed Trump for encouraging them to take action.
From an early tweet, Jim Acosta, from CNN reported an eyebrow-raising storyline that suggested former Vice President Mike Pence had been leaking information to the leftist media and Democrats, and the propaganda media was springing into action to set the narrative:
A source familiar with the work of the House Managers says former Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Marc Short has been contacted about providing information about threat to Pence. Short has not responded, the source said.

“The only thing that I ask if you vote for witnesses do not handcuff me, limiting the number of witnesses that I can have,” he said. “I need to do the 9/11 style investigation that (Speaker) Nancy Pelosi called for. It should have been done already. It’s a dereliction of the House managers duty that they didn’t.”
It looks as if Trump was set up, but that all of America has been set up.
aul Sperry holds out a crumb of hope that any turn around will happen:
BREAKING: Trump impeachment defense lawyers warn in 78-pp trial brief that Democrats' "slippery slope" impeachment tactics could be used by a future GOP Congress against Biden "for his obstruction of justice in setting up the Russia hoax" or Hillary for mishandling state secrets

There is a discussion in DC to disallow Trump from being allowed to have witnesses. Interesting work for our civil servants, who have not missed one ay check, and still won’t while they play political games.
