Moments ago, CNN’s Manu Raju reported that with Senator Lamar a “no” vote on witnesses, President Trump is likely to be acquitted as soon as tomorrow.
Raju brings up a unlikely scenario as the Dem’s only “hope.”
“The Dems’ only hope: Murkowski’s a ‘yes,’ and Roberts breaks a tie, which is unlikely.”
Per Chad Pergram of Fox News there is a very remote precedent to this based on a 1868 trial.
Lamar Alexander's 'no' vote means the votes are NOT there to move ahead with Trump's impeachment trial.
The Dems' only hope: Murkowski's a 'yes,' and Roberts breaks a tie, which is unlikely.
