Impeachment Trial Could Be Over Friday Night

By David Kamioner | January 30, 2020

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office is reportedly saying Thursday, LifeZette confirmed this with Hill Staff, that they have the votes to prohibit witnesses in a vote Friday afternoon and that the entire trial could wrap up with a Trump win Friday night.

Smart money right now is in almost a party line vote for acquittal on both counts with one, maybe two, Democrat defections. Call it 55-45 for the president.

LifeZette has also learned that social indicators in DC, sometimes better intel than political data, show that reservations at Capitol Hill restaurants are heavy from the Hill past 7pm Friday night. Those reservations were made since noon Thursday. Also, Amtrak reservations from the Hill to destinations all over the East Coast have increased substantially since Thursday afternoon.

If this is true, and votes can change as politics is fluid on a minute by minute basis, it would be a massive personal triumph for President Trump, his legal team, and the GOP. It would give him tremendous momentum going into his reelection campaign. It would also coincide, interestingly, with Brexit Day in the UK.

Conversely it would hand the Democrats a huuuge stinging loss after years of trying to unseat Trump with every move in their playbook. This news may have filtered down to the Senate floor, as Democrat House managers are sounding more bitter and desperate as the hours drone on.

Some Democrats are even talking about another impeachment investigation and vote in the House before the November election. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is said to be against that. At least, right now.
