Leftist media outlet CNN admitted on Thursday that the Democrats are in trouble with impeachment after they failed to obtain the votes required to continue the Senate trial.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer noted the fight was clear over whether there would be witnesses:

“They’ve been going for several hours already today; I think they have about three hours left after dinner tonight,” Blitzer said.

“The big fight clearly over whether or not there will be witnesses and Jake [Tapper] the big vote on that will come tomorrow.”

“They need four Republicans,” Blitzer continued.

“Right now, the Democrats look like they’re in trouble.”

Jake Tapper responded:

“One of the illest omens that I’ve seen for the Democrats so far came when Senator Lamar Alexander, theoretically one of the swing vote that could possibly vote for more witnesses, submitted a question along with two Trump stalwarts — Senators Daines and Cruz — and the question was, ‘please compare the bipartisanship in the Nixon impeachment, the Clinton impeachment, and the Trump impeachment.”

“One of the very many loaded questions in which they’re just trying to make a point,” Tapper added.

On Friday, Swing-vote Republican, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), announced that he would not support additional witnesses in President Donald Trump's "shallow, hurried, and wholly partisan" Senate impeachment trial, making an immediate acquittal likely.

The GOP senator's announcement has seemingly shut down Democrats' hopes of hearing testimony from former national security adviser John Bolton, while ending their anti-Trump impeachment campaign, as soon as Friday night.

"If this shallow, hurried, and wholly partisan impeachment were to succeed, it would rip the country apart, pouring gasoline on the fire of cultural divisions that already exist," Sen. Alexander said in a statement.

"It would create the weapon of perpetual impeachment to be used against future presidents whenever the House of Representatives is of a different political party."

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin said:

“Well, I think it’s almost been a return to the beginning of the week, before the big New York Times bombshell about the Bolton book, where the Republicans are just trying to run out the clock and not make any mistakes."

“Because it looks like they think they’re ahead, they are certainly are ahead on the issue of whether the president is going to be convicted and there seems to be a lot more confidence in their camp on the issue of witnesses," Toobin added.

“So, they are answering the questions with big picture issues, talking about the unfairness of the House investigation,” Toobin concluded.
