The left knows that they are in big trouble.
As an impeachment vote draws near, congressional Democrats know they have no chance at impeaching Trump.
And Chuck Schumer sent one letter on impeachment that amounted to waving the white flag of surrender.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has been watching the recent impeachment inquiry closely.
He has trusted Adam Schiff and Speaker Nancy Pelosi to manipulate this trial and remove President Donald Trump from office.
But as a vote draws near, it is starting to look like that will never happen.
And Schumer just called these surprising witnesses as a last Hail Mary to bring down Trump.
This past Sunday, Schumer penned a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell calling for the addition of two witnesses, former national security adviser John Bolton and Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.
Schumer knows that the investigation conducted by the House has yielded no results, and is using these last-minute witnesses as a final Hail Mary.
He claims that he wishes to call these witnesses to aid in a more evidence-based trial, but it is because the left is getting increasingly more desperate as an impeachment vote draws near.
Schumer also suggested two other witnesses be called, both of whom are close with the President and who supposedly knew of his delay of aid being sent to Ukraine.
NBC News reports:
Schumer, D-N.Y., proposed that the Senate subpoena four people who are close to the president or are expected to know about the delay of about $400 million in military aid to Ukraine: Mulvaney; Bolton; Robert Blair, senior adviser to Mulvaney; and Michael Duffey, associate director for national security at the Office of Management and Budget. Schumer proposed that each side question witnesses for four hours each.
But the House has already tried to subpoena these individuals, and all declined to testify in the hearing.
Schumer is manipulating the absence of these individuals’ testimonies to look like a cover-up.
“There’s not a single reason that has been given why the four witnesses we’ve asked for, why the documents we’ve asked for, should not be presented,” Schumer told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Monday. “I don’t know what they’ll say. Maybe they’ll be exculpatory to President Trump. But to not have them is to engage in a cover up. Is to say we’re afraid. And the American people will ask of President Trump and people like Mitch McConnell if he doesn’t have a full and fair trial, what are you hiding? What are you hiding?” (NBC News)
But these witnesses are not hiding anything. They know the left’s schemes and are choosing to not play right into their hands.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham took to Twitter to call Schumer out on his manipulating lies.
“Let us hope that fairness will prevail” a laughable quote from @SenSchumer this AM….after the dems release an “impeachment report” in the middle of the night. Thankfully the people of this country continue to see the partisan sham that this is.

Schumer continues to scheme and plot, but those loyal to Trump refuse to fall prey to his manipulation.
