President Donald Trump fired off a pair of tweets Tuesday night ranting about what he called the \u0022impeachment hoax\u0022 and \u0022political con job\u0022 shortly after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly admitted in a closed-door meeting with GOP lawmakers that he doesn\u0026#039;t have the votes to stop witnesses from being called to testify in the ongoing trial.\u0022No matter how many witnesses you give the Democrats, no matter how much information is given, like the quickly produced Transcripts, it will NEVER be enough for them,\u0022 Trump tweeted. \u0022They will always scream UNFAIR.\u0022In a separate tweet hours later, Trump asked why former national security adviser John Bolton—the most prominent potential witness with first-hand knowledge of the president\u0026#039;s actions—didn\u0026#039;t \u0022complain about this \u0026#039;nonsense\u0026#039; a long time ago, when he was very publicly terminated.\u0022Bolton alleges in an unpublished book manuscript that Trump said he wanted to withhold congressionally approved aid to Ukraine until that country agreed to launch investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.The president\u0026#039;s tweets came after McConnell reportedly told fellow Republican senators that he lacks the votes to continue blocking witnesses for the Senate trial, stonewalling that Democratic lawmakers and other critics have described as a cover-up. Just four Senate Republicans would have to vote with Democrats to approve witnesses.\u0022He\u0026#039;s desperate,\u0022 Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) wrote in response to Trump\u0026#039;s tweets, urging the public to continue calling GOP senators who could vote to call witnesses.He’s desperate. Keep calling:Senator Pat Toomey (202) 224-4254Senator Rob Portman (202) 224-3353Senator Mitt Romney (202) 224-5251Senator Susan Collins (202) 224-2523Senator Lisa Murkowski (202) 224-6665Senator Lamar Alexander (202) 224-4944 https://t.co/Yaf2uucnJ7— Eric Swalwell (@ericswalwell) January 29, 2020According to the Wall Street Journal, McConnell told Republicans following the final day of presentations from Trump\u0026#039;s defense team that the \u0022vote total wasn\u0026#039;t where it needed to be on blocking witnesses or documents.\u0022\u0022He had a card with \u0026#039;yes,\u0026#039; \u0026#039;no,\u0026#039; and \u0026#039;maybes\u0026#039; marked on it, apparently a whip count, but he didn\u0026#039;t show it to senators,\u0022 the Journal reported. A vote to approve witnesses for the Senate trial is expected to take place Friday.\u0022The pressure is working,\u0022 declared progressive advocacy group Indivisible, which has been driving calls Republican senators. \u0022This is huge. We need to hear from Bolton and the other witnesses who know exactly how egregious Trump\u0026#039;s abuse of power was.\u0022\u0022This is no time to ease up—keep calling every day until the vote,\u0022 the group added.
