The Senate voted 51 to 49 not to call witnesses in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial Friday afternoon.
A day earlier, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R., Tenn.), punctured Democrats’ hopes when he announced his opposition, saying he believed the president acted improperly when he pressed Ukraine to launch investigations that could benefit him politically but that it wasn’t an impeachable offense.
Improperly is an understatement and 51 Republicans shut-down any pre-text of a fair trial when they voted to deny witness testimony and documents.
Republican Senators Mitt Romney, Utah and Susan Collins, Main, voted against their party by voting for more witnesses and documents.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called the Senate vote to deny witnesses a “grand tragedy.”
