.chuckschumer says it's a 'tragedy' that a majority of Republicans voted against considering witnesses in President realDonaldTrump's impeachment trial

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer says it's a "tragedy" that a majority of Republicans voted against considering witnesses in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.

The outcome was widely expected after a key Republican, Senator Lamar Alexander, announced he did not need to see or hear more evidence. The Republican-controlled Senate stopped Democrats' attempts to hear evidence from witnesses such as former national security adviser John Bolton. He is thought to have first-hand knowledge of the US president's efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Democrats live in a bizarre fantasy bubble. They are the real tragedy!

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Or really injustice?

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump The socialist Dems & media are desperate to destroy Trump , NOT because he’s failing , but because he’s succeeding beyond imagination !! He’s exposed the ruling political class for all the world to see & their panicking.

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Yes sure CNN .... total Democrat scam !! One thing you won’t be able to spin in the next few months will be THE DURHAM REPORT ! Stand by for the uncovering of the greatest political scandal in history !!

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Well chuck it's not up the senate to do the job of the house....if you had such a good case you wouldn't need further witnesses

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Wasn’t this impeachment ment to be clear cut,an open & shut case,a lay down misere hand for the Democrats.If so they are inept

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump ** The dems are deliriously contemptuous for getting away with their lying and cheating for such a long time against the American people. Trump has exposed how corrupt the dems are. Why would the American people for one moment allow the dems to continue with their tyranny.

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Obviously the GOP are scared of the truth.

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Whilst knowing the Republican Party would not vote to remove Trump they could have put him on notice by voting to allow witnesses This would have made him realise he needs to act more Presidential than he has to date and may have made him behave and toe the Republican Party line

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Sad result as Trump needed to be taught to act more presidential. Even if the Republicans accepted witnesses the Republicans would not have voted to remove him. It is clear the Republicans many of who despise Trump were just to scared. They should have used it to gain strength!!!

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump You had plenty of time to call witnesses in your preparation of impeachment papers and associated hearings.

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump These wankers have been staging the same thing for ages. What a bunch of crooks.

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump The party has either got to radically change under a Sanders presidency or be destroyed.

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Sky Parroting DNC talking points again just breathtaking

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Boo-hoo Dems !

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Cryin' Chuck is in need of a good lie down. He's getting snappy at his sombre democrat friends. Poor old thing is probably tuckered out.

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump The tragedy, at least for the Democrats, is the poor job Schiff and Nadler did on the House of Reps.

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump It’s a pity. That was a brilliant opportunity to expose the dem corruption and jobs for the boys scheme. How about an investigation into the Clinton foundation?

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump RW corruption is ok apparently

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump The tragedy here is Schumer and his ilk

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Trump2020LandslideVictory Thankyou ☺

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump Did you report what the GOP said?

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump A decision for integrity at last !

chuckschumer realDonaldTrump God Bless President Trump.

Senate acquittal of Trump 'likely' and 'bipartisan' | Sky News AustraliaSky News contributor John Jordan says it appears an acquittal of President Trump is likely and could even be 'bipartisan' as senators question House managers and Trump lawyers for the second day.\n\n'It looks like the Republicans have the votes to bring an end to the trial. A lot of my sources are telling me there may be one to three Democrats who will vote with Republicans,' Mr Jordan told Sky News. \n\nHouse Democrats have urged senators to vote to call for witness testimonies, especially that of former Trump Security Adviser John Bolton.\n\n'It's really difficult to understand what Bolton would say. Whatever he does say, it's contravened by his praising of President Trump's handling of Ukraine in the past,' he said. File this under BS. One word, Dodgy! Has he even been watching? That is garbage.
