They're Bolton ahead. President Donald Trump appears poised for a swift acquittal in the Senate as Democrats have all but lost the battle for witness testimony. "Let the people decide," said GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander, who said he'll vote against the motion to allow witnesses, which will likely be the final nail in the coffin. That means ex-national security adviser John Bolton won't appear on Capitol Hill to share his account of Trump's bid to pressure Ukraine for political help.
Could it still go the other way? A deadlock would allow Chief Justice John Roberts to make the call — though observers say he'd skirt the issue and let the tie keep witnesses away.
