Hell may have just frozen over as even CNN is admitting President Trump “won” on impeachment.
The admission comes after the US Senate voted on Friday against hearing from additional witnesses, pushing the impeachment trial towards a final vote to determine whether or not Trump will be removed from office.
CNN’s chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said very plainly: “Trump won. He’s going to win this trial.”
“He won on the issue of witnesses. He’s going to get acquitted. And that’s how history will remember what went on here,” the analyst continued via BizPac Review.
“I think history will also record that there are at least one — and perhaps other pivotal, pivotal witnesses who were available to the Senate to talk about the precise issue that is the subject of this impeachment trial and the Senate decided not to hear from him.”
Despite the admission, Toobin said Democrats shined in the impeachment process, especially House impeachment manager Adam Schiff.
“I thought it was dazzling,” Toobin continued. “I thought the way he wove through both the facts of the case and the historical context was really remarkable. It was the second-best courtroom address — since it’s like a courtroom — that I ever heard.”

BizPac Review adds:
The Senate vote on additional witnesses was close. The margin of victory for Republicans was attributable to the decisions by fence-sitting GOP members Lisa Murkowski and Lamar Alexander to oppose calling additional witnesses and extending the deleterious Dem charade any further.
“It was inappropriate for the president to ask a foreign leader to investigate his political opponent and to withhold United States aid to encourage that investigation,” said Alexander. “… But the Constitution does not give the Senate the power to remove the president from office and ban him from this year’s ballot simply for actions that are inappropriate.”
“As an institution, the Congress has failed,” Murkowski declared. “The House chose to send articles of impeachment that are rushed and flawed. I carefully considered the need for additional witnesses and documents, to cure the shortcomings of its process, but ultimately decided that I will vote against considering motions to subpoena.”
Here’s how some people responded to the admission per the report:
All he does is win win win !!!
