Chuck Schumer and the Democrats played their last card in the impeachment witch hunt.
And it involved the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
But the Supreme Court crushed Chuck Schumer with this epic impeachment defeat.
When Tennessee RINO Lamar Alexander announced he would not vote to subpoena new witnesses, that gave Republicans 50 votes to block subpoenas for additional testimony that would extend the impeachment witch hunt by weeks or months.
Pro-abortion RINO Lisa Murkowski was the only Republican that had not yet made their intentions clear as to how they would vote on witnesses.
That left Democrats and their allies in the fake news media a glimmer of hope that the Senate could still subpoena former National Security Advisor John Bolton.
Democrats’ slim chance for new witnesses centered on Murkowski – who had expressed opening to subpoenaing new testimony – voting “yes” which would create a 50-50 tie.
In the event of a tie Democrats and so-called “journalists” begged Chief Justice John Roberts to break the tie and side with the Democrats.
Fake news “reporters” and Democrats know Roberts often caves in when bombarded with pressure from the media and Washington elites.
In 2012 Roberts succumbed to the assault from the left to save Obamacare by rescuing the law when Roberts changed his vote at the last minute to claim Obamacare passed constitutional muster.
And just last year Roberts folded in the face of a fake news media pressure campaign to reject the Trump administration’s ability to insert a question asking about citizenship in the 2020 census.
But in the impeachment trial Chief Justice Roberts broke the Democrats’ hearts.
During the trial proceedings on Friday, Roberts announced he would not step in to break any 50-50 ties.
“I think it would be inappropriate for me, an unelected official from a different branch of government, to assert the power to change that result so that the motion would succeed,” Roberts declared.
Democrats and the fake news media cited the example of then-Chief Justice Salmon Chase in the 1868 Senate impeachment trial for President Andrew Johnson.
Roberts rejected those calls and explained Chase only intervened on procedural motions to end a session.
The Chief Justice added that should a motion end in a 50-50 tie it would be considered defeated.
“One had to do with a motion to adjourn and the other was to adjourn deliberations,” Roberts said. “I do not consider those episodes 150 years ago to break ties. If it is divided equally on a motion, the normal rule is that the motion fails.”
Trump supporters breathed a sigh of relief.
Given Roberts’ history there was no guarantee Roberts would do what was right and stand up to the Democrats’ bullying tactics.
Roberts’ announcement swatted down any chance of some kind of last-minute intervention to save the Democrats’ hopes of extending the impeachment sham.
