Timing it brilliantly, right before Trump’s defense team started it’s closing arguments in our so-called “president’s” impeachment trial, someone dropped a bomb all over the Senate. According to a soon to be released book by former National Security Advisor, John Bolton, in which a manuscript was conveniently leaked to the New York Times, there is more than enough evidence linking Trump to the extortion of Ukraine in exchange for dirt on the Bidens.
Since the news broke, it seems to have become difficult for a lot of GOP senators to stay in whatever messed up state of denial they’ve been in for the past almost 4 years, as earlier Monday evening, PBS reporter, Lisa Desjardins, tweeted that “multiple sources” in the GOP have told her that there are at least 51 votes to approve calling witnesses in the next phase of the impeachment trial.
WITNESS NEWS: Multiple GOP sources tell me there are or seem to be 51 votes for the first vote on witnesses – whether to consider the idea of witnesses.
But not yet 51 votes for any *specific* witness.

The response to this news has been overwhelming. Check out some of the reactions from the Twitterverse:
They MUST follow through. Like one wise Twitter user said above, we really only need 4 smart (brave) GOP senators to vote to call witnesses, and that gives the rest an excuse to follow them!
