Key F.A. Lost:

 

The Team: This past season was an utter disaster. In someway it was maybe BB's and TB12's best season since 2001. However, the warning signs are flashing here, just like in the vote the Republican Senate just made to make Trump Dictator for life, the warning sides of the end of an era are flashing. 

The Pats have had an amazing 20 years of continuity, we're their great Triumvirate of Ownership, HC, and QB was been the best in the business. Last season all three failed on a level we have never seen. It started off with Kraft going to Providence for a handy. Only he ended up in a slave din where Chinese slaves where forced to give handies to billionaires (beware America, because once the Commie Putin/Trump Party takes over completely there will be a lot of America slaves giving handies to gross old dudes for trump change). So while I'm not against old dudes paying for handies, just don't do it to support a Commie slave ring. 

Meanwhile, BB just as tragically as Kraft, utterly failed in the offseason. As the weapons for Brady were decimated in the off season, he did nothing. Now, I will admit there in an exception for him. His plan was to get Austin Seferian-Jenkins to step in for Gronk (by the way, Gronk ain't comin' back morons, so give it a rest). But he got injured and was forced to retire. That might have been something to look into when Jared Cook, Tyler Eifert, Jesse James, and Nick Boyle were still on the market. 

He left Brady weaponless. They had no weapons for Brady to throw to last season, once Edelman's shoulder blew out. They had shots at Golden Tate, John Brown (who was a Number One WR last season), and Robby Anderson (who wasn't). Instead, Dontrelle Inman? Josh Gordon, who ganja-ed his was out of town? And that Mother F-ing, Loki wannabe, brinier of Chaos Antonio Brown. 

So while BB tried, he failed on every level to help Brady. That cannot happen again. The Offense was left with less than one-catch-a-game Dorsett, who literally had one catch in the 2nd half of the season (or at least it seemed that way;). Meanwhile, once Edelman broke his wing, their two best weapons for Brady were the two rookies N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers. But Brady just never really seemed to trust them. Brady will have more trust for them this season. 

Then they traded their 2nd for Sanu, and he AS-Jed them. He got injured, and he never recovered. BB gave up a 2nd for him, which they could really use now. However, they give up the 2nd for him over Sanders, because he has two years left on his contract (and he went to Rutgers;). So he will get another chance to help the Team this year. We shall see. 

So BB, after loosing the best TE ever, left Brady without a legit option at tight end for the season. One-catch LaCosse, turned into less-than-one-catch LaCosse for most of the season. So they had to drag Benjamin Watson off Social Security, and lined him up in the slot with his walker. He was okay, but it was an admission of complete failure to weaponize the Offense. 

And just to make things worse, the O-line fell apart. They had Dan Skipper protecting Brady's back most of the Preseason, and he took snaps in the regular season as well. When you find an OLT like Trent Brown, you do everything you can to keep him. Another mistake that derailed he season. There were so many. Then their O-line predictably fell apart. They had 2nd and 3rd string OLs playing O-line all season. It was a sad cast of clowns. And then... friggin' Marcus Cannon gave the Team the flu, and that was it. 

The season was doomed from the start. And damn... Brady looked old. It was sad and pathetic watching him trying to throw to the cast of misfits toys, behind their broken furniture O-line. He kept completing 50% of his passes or less, but god help us he kept winning. The Offense and weapons were a laughing stock in the NFL, But the Defense was beautiful. I kept wondering how they could possible have won that game, with that Offense, and old man Brady looking my age? And then went oh yeah, the defense. 

When the defense finally faltered at the end of the season, because other teams finally figured out they were over loading a side and over-blitzing? They lost three straight ugly-ass games to devastate New England. But looking back we can all see that it was the Patriots Great Triumvirate of BB, TB12, and Bob all failed this past season. in ways which seemed small, but everything seemed to impact this season with a weight the team just couldn't carry. 

So this year's Draft starts the mending of the ways. We will have one or two more years of Brady, BB, and Bob, with two lottery tickets in hand to try can acquire the Magnificent Seven. It will start with their magnificent defense. Can they hold that promise together for another year or two? Can BB find some damn weapons to make Brady better, rather than the other way around? Brady can no longer make the whole of their weapons greater than the sum of the part all by himself. 

He needs legit NFL weapons, like a healthy pair of Edelman and Sanu. If not, they gotta go. He needs more than one legit NFL TE who can get open over the middle and down the seam. Watson and One-Catch ain't those dudes, they gotta go. They need to trade down into this 2nd Round, impossibly deep with WR and TE, and grab at least one of each. I like Kmet (who they might have to pounce on in the 1st), Adam Trautman (2nd), and Bryce Hopkins (3rd). I also like Thaddeus Moss in the 2nd, Albert Okwuegbunam in the 2nd, and Stephen Sullivan in the 3rd or maybe 4th. 

So to get where the Pats want to get, they will have to try and pick up a couple of 2nds for this pick. Day Two is littered with TEs and WRs like we haven't seen before. This is the Draft the Pats have to trade down and trade down hard for extra picks. There will be better WRs in the 3rd Round this year, then some of the worst WR classes had in the 1st. Trading down for extra picks on Day Two could make this such an a great Draft that Brady could look young again for a year or Two.

I think it starts with N'Keal Harry's ex-ASU teammate Brandon Aiyuk, who is as dynamic as Harry, and is also an elite punt returner. He will be a solid Day Two pick. There could be 16 to 20 WRs taken on Day Two, which if you think about it is an incredible number. And that depth extends into Day Three, with about 25 WRs who could play as rookies. 

Which according to Walter, doesn't include James Proche (who was explosive running patterns to create separation at the Senior Bowl), Austin Mack (who got open in pattern all season at OSU), Denzel Mims (who may have been the best WR at the SB), Devin Duvernay (A sprinter who turned into a legit slot guy at Texas), I'd be happy to pick up a couple of those four guys on Day Three. 

The Player: 02/09 *Laviska Shenault- All Flash And Dash.

He can run explosive pattern to burst open against the best. Electric, twitchy, dynamic, explosive, unstoppable. Great size and power with the ball in his hands. He can catch the ball short on the jerk route, on 4th down, and fight through the great CB spinning around four yards for the 1st. He understands the situation and know show to make the play when his team needs him. Not many guys have had his size, speed, power, and twitch.
I hate when they line him up in the backfield because I want to see him run patterns, but he is effective running and going out in pattern as an RB. Utah tried to double him all game. They gave him the ball on one play and he ran to the right with what looked like the whole defense in pursuit in front of him, He cut back and ran for 8. On the next play he lined up outside. Ran a short comeback for the easy 1st. 

Career: Has played in 31 career games with 16 starts. He has 145 career receptions for 1,900 yards and 11 touchdowns. He currently ranks 8th in career receptions with 145 and 11th in career receiving yards with 1,900.
Has scored 108 points, which puts him at 49th on CU’s all-time scoring list
.
2019 (Jr.): Has played in nine off 11 games this season. He has 52 catches for 721 yards and four touchdowns receiving, 18 rushes for 136 yards and two touchdowns rushing. Named a game captain for the Nebraska game.
CU's nominee for Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week three times, against Air Force, USC and Stanford, and to the Colorado Chapter of the NFF Player of the eek twice, against Air Force and USC. He was named the offensive player of the game four times by the coaches, against Air Force, USC, Stanford and Washington. 
Had seven caches for 100 yards and a touchdown receiving and three rushes for 17 yards against Washington. Had eight catches for 91 yards and one carry for five yards against Stanford. He had 96 all-purpose yards.Had nine catches for 172 yards and one touchdown against USC. He also had one carry for 17 yards, pushing his all-purpose yardage for the game to 189 total yards. Named the top player in the Pac-12 by collegefootballnews.com.Attended the Manning Camp.Named a 2019 Player to Watch by the Touchdown Club of Columbus. One of 30 players selected to attend the NCAA's Elite Student-Athlete Symposium in the Spring. Practiced in non-contact drills all spring recovering from foot and shoulder surgery
.

 

Higgins has the size, hands, and Vert, to be a legit NFL Power Forward at WR. He started off a little slow, and looked like he might have been nursing an injury early in the season. But by the end of the season he was dominating like expected. When he is on, he cannot be stopped. When his QB went high to him, he was unstoppable. He is going to blow up the Combine, and could be a great one in the NFL.

Talented wideout who produced one of the school’s most impressive sophomore campaigns in 2018 in his first full year as a starter and followed up with a spectacular junior campaign to place himself among the top receivers in Clemson’s illustrious lineage at the position … finished his three-year career from 2017-19 with 135 career receptions for 2,448 yards with 27 receiving touchdowns over 1,279 snaps in 43 games (30 starts) … his 27 receiving touchdowns entering bowl season were tied for the most in school history with DeAndre Hopkins and Sammy Watkins and tied for ninth-most in ACC history … selected as a second-team Preseason All-American for 2019 by both Phil Steele and Athlon … departed as the only player in school history to record double-digit touchdown receptions in consecutive seasons.
2019: First-team All-ACC selection … recorded 59 catches for a team-high 1,167 yards (fifth-most in a season in school history) and 13 receiving touchdowns in 550 snaps over 15 games (all starts) … caught a 62-yard touchdown in the midst of posting a team-high four receptions for 98 yards vs. Georgia Tech, pushing his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown to five.

The Reason: The Pats might have to step up and take Higgins if he is still on the Board, which is unlikely. The Pats actually need Tight Ends more, but any weapon to help Brady in his 40s has to be snagged, and snagged fast. Higgins is a match up nightmare for CBs. He is just too big, strong, and has elite ball skills to go up over the rim and snag the ball easily. 

The Pats need to get some plug and play help for their old QB. Getting him a young big power forward WR, who can post up short, go deep, and cannot be stopped on the back shoulder Fade outside, would help him immeasurably. They should go trade down for a couple of 2nds, Tight End here, or a top-top talent at WR here. 

If Shenault or Higgins drop to them here they cannot trade down for a TE in the 2nd, as both are top-top talents. They will have to take either if either falls to them here, and try to get a plug and play tight end in the 3rd. But there is much better talent in the 3rd at WR. They could find a plug and play WR in the 3rd. While the plug and play TEs are going to be scooped up in the 2nd.

Key F, A, Lost:

 

The Team: They have one good WR, and the rest are average at best. They need to sign Michael Thomas  and get him some help. They need to sign Ginn jr., and he ain't getting any younger either. They have three WRs who are free agents. They have to pick up a big WR for Brees. 

The Player: Taken from PatsDraft.com 2020 NFL Draft Preview:

Henderson likes to hop back, and when in pure Man he likes to cut off the WR at the Marker. He can turn his back to the QB and focus solely on the WR in press man. More Finesse Press than bump and run. He can hop inside the WR when he breaks inside in pattern, which is very impress quicks, explosion, and COD. He’ll get beat inside and hop outside and steer the WR towards the Cover One Safety. He can shed his man and go and tackle the ball carrier running right at him. 

Missouri: He can really move in, up, and around receivers and TEs. He can pick up the great tight end and cut in front of him and break up the pass. Great job running stride for stride with the WR, and can reach out and slap the ball down. He can play the ball in the air before the WR can grab it. I really like this kid. If he has the speed at the Combine he could in the top half of the 1st. 

He usually played on the QB’s left. But he did line up on the QB’s right in some games, like against Missouri. He will play over the top of Trips and pick up the receiver going deep. He can be a physical form tackler when he wants to be. He will play off and will skip back into a zone and go deep like he’s in Cover Three. He will also just Bail sometimes. 

Michigan: Michigan did not want to line up anyone in front of him early. He will charge up to help the run when he sees the RB has a lane between his teammates. But he is not an aggressive run stuffer by any means. He can take bad angles on the run and not help when the RB goes for a long run. He seemed to get stuck in the middle a lot at Michigan, like they were game planning against him. He can get to the QB fast when he has a lane, and surprise everyone and Sack the QB. 

He will blitz the QB from the edge and redirect to the RB on the handoff for a TFL. It can be a disaster when the QB tries to throw deep on him. He can get physical in the run game and jam off the WR and make the tackle. He switched sides against Michigan more than I saw him in other games. He almost got beat for a late TD after he tried to Jam the big WR at the line. The WR pushed off and got just enough space for the QB to throw into, but he was able to slam him to the ground as he fell back and the ball bounced out.

The Player: Diggs has somehow become very underrated in this Draft. He is very smart in coverage. He swivels his hips back smoothly, and lover to 3/4er so he can eye the CB and WR.

Key F.A. Lost:

 

The Team: If they don't take a QB here, they have to take another O-linemen.  

The Player: Taken from PatsDraft.com 2020 NFL Draft Preview:

47. Calvin Throckmorton- Great quick feet in pass pro. Sometimes a little too quick. He needs to kickslide more. He short sets a lot. Dude is smart and versatile. He started at four different positions for Oregon: OLT, OC, ORG, ORT). That is very impressive. Every team needs guys who can play multiple positions along the O-line in case of injury during the game. 

He is quick and strong enough to turn and seal the big 5-tech outside. Very strong in pass pro to shove the OLB back and just stop him cold and hand fight him to him standstill. He will block two guys on the play action pass. He can turn and shove the DT sideways almost off his feet and go and hit the LB. If he can do these things on the left side as well as he does them on the right, he might be the best OLT in this Draft. But he did not look as smooth and natural on the left side. 

They run a wacky scheme, so he is asked to do a lot of different blocks. Not all of them make sense. Great shove on the small edge rusher to send him about five yards in the wrong direction and win off first contact. When he stays and plays low, he is a powerful blocker. He can pull to the other side of the line and wipe out the DE in the hole. They run a lot of misdirection so he can be left looking dumb sometimes. 

He can beat the DE inside off the snap in the zone run. He will shuffle his feet back inside off the slide, but is so quick moving backwards that it doesn’t seem to matter. He is terrific mirroring the rusher and will stand in front of him at the line if he doesn’t move, and then follow him outside. Nice initial hop outside off the snap and he can lead the RB outside to the edge. 

The Reason: Throckmorton can play four OL positions including OC. Miami has to completely rebuild their O-line, and having a guy who they can plug in at four different positions will help them pick up the best available OLs.

The Team: If a legit Edgerusher drops to them they will take him. They are losing three Edgerushers to free agency. 

The Player: Taken from PatsDraft.com 2020 NFL Draft Preview:

27. *Yetur Gross-Matos- 6-5, 264, EDGE, Penn State, #99- He was my favorite edgerusher to watch last season. He just needs to hit the QB a few more times. He could end up being the top edgerusher in this Draft. He has the speed to run the arc. He can bend the corner. Nice Rip to the QB. Great technique. Knows how to use his hands and long arms. 

He likes to turn inside as he rushes and go upfield sideways low, so he can see the QB and the RB. Very quick twitch with fierce hands. He wins hand fights. He is so good at powering through the OLT and grabbing the RB on the edge. He can make the great left tackles look bad. 

He can take on multiple blockers. He can shove off the TE and then run through the RB and chase down the QB on the opposite side of the field. He can use speed to power to jolt the OLT off balance and then throw him to the ground. His game against Iowa in 2018 was one of the best I’ve seen from a D-end. He had 20 TFLs last season. 

He can be tough slamming inside to knock the OLT back and free up the DT to stunt around him. It is amazing how he can make blockers miss. He can grab the OG’s arms and shove them outside and ole’ the OLT and tackle the RB for the TFL. 

He is so good at dipping under the OLT. The lower he plays, the better he gets. Nice burst upfield, and has a great spin move back on the delayed handoff. He is amazing at getting to the other side of the line. He finds the ball carrier. 

I love the way he moves on the field. He is a more impressive athlete moving in combat than a football player and he is a damn good football player. He is so slick making the OLT miss with his great inside move, and going and getting the RB running behind him.

The Reason: Gross-Matos is a super athletic Edgerusher, and we know how much Pete Carroll likes those upfield DL.

The Team: The Ravens need to get a plug and play LB early in this Draft. . 

The Player: Taken from Mother Of All Mocks Queen is an odd prospect. He is such a great power prospect. Flashy powerful athlete, but he gets high and falls down a lot. He doesn’t always play with great balance. That is my biggest worry about him. I think that is why he sinks down a little. But he is an all-out all the time guy, and that sometimes leads to his lack of balance as well.

Hyper, flashy, electric inside rusher. Odd prospect, who almost rushes like an Edge, but played mostly Nose Tackle. Played a lot of DT last season inside of NT. Terrific job stunting inside from 5-Tech and slamming into the QB from right up the middle for the gob-smacking sack. He was asked to read and react in 2018 and had a good burst from 1-Tech as well.

He exploded up the charts after the Play Offs. He stepped up his game in an amazing way to take over as the top LB on LSU and was elite in the last three games. Explosive from the 2nd level to get to the RB first on the draw. Another truly rare athlete on the LSU defense. He is the best pure speed linebacker in this Draft. As long as he is moving he is winning. When he stops moving is when he gets in trouble.

He was amazingly the Co-MVP of the National Champ Game. Great spy to get outside and tackle the QB when he takes off. Huge hitter on the QB. He can chase the speed back and tackle him from behind. Amazingly fast. True elite speed.

The Reason: They are going to have to pick up an LB or two in this Draft.

The Team: Eason was better in 2018 than 2019. Both of the Titans QBs are free agents.  

The Player: Taken from PatsDraft.com 2020 NFL Draft Preview:

55. *Jacob Eason- 6-6, 227, QB, Washington, Rs-Jr #10- He was a top recruit to Georgia. And saw a lot of action as a freshman. He had to redshirt last season to transfer to Washington and has two year of eligibility left. I don’t see why he would come out in this Draft. He hasn’t played in years, and I think he wants to QB Washington for a couple of seasons. He has a nice arm and can make all the throws. He is built like an NFL QB. 

He will get over excited and whip a bullet behind his TE. He will struggle to find guys in the Redzone. But can show patience and throw a strike as the pocket is collapsing around him. He throws very well with rushers in his face and the pocket collapsing around, when he knows he is going to get hit. He looked like a 1st Round QB at Georgia his Freshman year. 

He went under center and turned his back to the defense in an NFL play action at Georgia. He is not a great runner, especially on 3rd down. He can throw the nice deep pass with the pocket collapsing around him. He can dump it off to the RB outside as he is being hit and knocked down. Nice NFL play action on 3rd down and can hit the TE sneaking outside for the 1st. 

Nice quick feet in the pocket. Terrific balance and poise running play action and finding a WR over the middle. Good job hitting the WR in stride down the sideline. He can throw the nice pass on the Dig. He tends to stare down his first option and wait for him to get open. Which can work better at Georgia with their level of WRs.

The Reason: They don't seem to really like either QB, so do they want to resign one or the other? .

The Team: I still think the Packers need an edge guy and some help in the trenches. However, it a big WR drops down to them he will be tough to pass. 

The Player: Jefferson is a big WR who knows how to create separation in pattern. He might be the best route runner in the Draft. He has a lot of similarities to Michael Thomas. He knows how to get open over the middle in the 4th when he team needs him the most. He just keeps running patterns to get open when it counts. Terrific 3rd down WR. He is tough to bring down on reverses. He made a lot o f money at the Senior Bowl. 

JUNIOR SEASON (2019): Coming off his best game as a Tiger with 14 catches for 227 yards and four TDs in LSU’s 63-28 win over Oklahoma in the CFP National Semifinal … Set CFP Semifinal game records for receptions (14), receiving yards (227), receiving yards in a half (186), and receiving TDs (4) … Has caught 21 passes for 342 yards and five TDs in LSU’s last two games … Second team All-SEC selection from the AP … Has 102 receptions for 1,434 yards and 18 TDs … The 102 receptions are a school-record and the third-highest total in SEC history … His 18 TD receptions ties the SEC single-season mark along with teammate Ja’Marr Chase and Florida’s Reidel Anthony (1996) … Goes into Oklahoma game tied for No. 1 in the nation in TD receptions (18) and No. 3 in both receptions (102) and receiving yards (1,434) … Averaging 14.1 yards a catch and 102.4 yards per game.

The Reason: They have to get some more help for an aging Rodgers. Jefferson is the best player available pick at a big need position. He is one of the best WRs in this Draft, and could slip into the 1st. Rogers loves big WRs, who run precise patterns.

Key FA Lost:

 

The Team: The Chiefs like to get big blockers, and speed-speed-speed on the outside. 

The Player: Reagor runs a nice Post to get open past the marker. Then he can split two defenders to get extra yards. He can adjust to the badly thrown ball and tip it out of the CBs hands. Great jab step outside to take the inside shoulder of the CB and get open deep down the seam. He has that knack for getting open over the top. 
True junior. He has the speed to get open deep down the Seam. He reminds me of Green Bay WR Randall Cobb. He is more dynamic with the ball in his hands than in pattern. He can get open from the slot after taking the big hit from the LB. He gets pissed when he drops one. He can become the DB on the bad pass and knock it down. 
They love to run the end around to him a lot. He has great speed, but will out run his blockers. He needs to run smarter sometimes, and set up his blockers more. He wants to go full speed the second he gets the ball in his hands. Terrific returner, but he has to secure the ball better on returns. 

The Reason: The Chiefs love their small speed WRs, who can fly downfield and tale advantage of Mahomes arm.

The Team: 49ers will be in position to take the best player available at a need position. 

The Player loved this cat as a passrusher at Utah, but was great in run defense in the SB practices. I did not expect that. He is a 1st Round edge. Great job setting the edge outside, and then grabbing the ORT arms, and pulling himself inside to hit the RB. When he wins the hand fight he gets to the ball carrier. He can attack the OLT’s hands and arms with either hand, and both in the rush.  

Career leader in Sacks at Utah. PAC-12 DL of the year. High character kid. Great-great hand fighter. He slashed by an ORT in the Senior Bowl, with a double arm chop, and was by him before he turned around. It was an All-Pro flash and slash running the Arc, with elite technique, speed, and heavy hands. This kid is a 1st Round pick. He has the best hands in the Draft not named Chase or Young. He can get a little too aggressive trying to punch out the ball, which is not a bad thing. Great aggressive hands. He is so tough to keep outside when they run inside.

The Reason: I mean, did you see him at the Senior Bowl? He has to go in the 1st Round. .

The 1st Amendment to the Constitution is the greatest paragraph ever written by mankind. It is the truest diagram of how to ensure a free Country of citizens survives. But is is also a list of what to attack when you want to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs is attacking every article in the 1st Amendment. Beware subjects, or you will be subjugated:

 

Warnings were given! 

Democracy is a battle for freedom and equality for all. Democracy needs to be guarded, treasured, and fought to keep if needs-be! And not handed over, so fucking cowardly, to a Dictator like the Communism Putin Party just did! 

 

Communism is a beautiful idea of equality for all workers, with one BLOOD RED FATAL-FLAW, "The Dictatorship of the Proletariat". Where a BLOOD STAINED DICTATOR takes over to subvert all the freedoms gained by the bloody masses, and clamps BLOODY TYRANNY down on now enslaved masses. 

 

We are now officially a Communist Country. The Republican Commie Party of Putin, Officially voted Herr Trump as the BLOOD-RED Communist Dictator of American. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY OF PUTIN just voted to open the veins of PATRIOTS to flood the Senate floor with OUR BLOOD, and install a Communist Manifesto like

BLOOD RED COMMIE DICTATOR OF AMERICA

as no longer the freedom bearing President of the United State of America! 

And as THE PARTY OF PUTIN CELEBRATED... the Heavens wept.

 

The Putin Party, led by Red Square Moscow Mitch, just turned the no longer US Senate into a propaganda tool of the KGB., and make America Red with the blood stained color of the Communist USSR. The blood stained (R)s voted to make the COMMIE RED TRUMP, as above the law as the KGB KING OF RUSSIA, the blood stained Putin

God help us all, because the Putin Republican Party Senate sure as hell won't...

 

Senate Rejects Witnesses in Trump Impeachment Trial

Republican majority, by a 51-49 vote, keeps new evidence from being introduced.

 

WASHINGTON—Senate Republicans rejected Democrats’ demands to call new witnesses and documents in President Trump’s impeachment trial, clearing the way for an acquittal on abuse of power and obstruction-of-Congress charges next week.

The 51-49 vote late Friday afternoon represented a major victory for Republican leadership, which has sought to complete the trial as quickly as possible and avoid testimony that could be politically damaging. Democrats had spent weeks calling for the Senate to subpoena former national security adviser John Bolton and other officials, seeking testimony about Mr. Trump’s efforts to press Ukraine to launch investigations that could benefit him politically.

Two Republicans, Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah and Susan Collins of Maine, joined every Democrat to vote for the Senate to call in new witnesses. The GOP controls 53 of the Senate’s 100 seats.

Under a separate resolution that Republicans approved along party lines, the impeachment trial will break for the weekend and resume Monday at 11 a.m. EST for four hours of closing arguments. After those arguments, the trial will adjourn again, giving senators the opportunity to speak on the floor about the charges before returning for a vote on the articles of impeachment at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

Democrats shortly after the vote on witnesses suggested that any acquittal of Mr. Trump would be tainted.

“America will remember this day, unfortunately, where the Senate did not live up to the responsibilities, where the Senate turned away from truth and went along with a sham trial,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) told reporters. Democrats also offered a series of amendments to the rules again calling for evidence, and each failed.

Democratic hopes to extend the trial were dashed in the final 24 hours before the vote, when two Republicans who were on the fence about new evidence said they would oppose the motion. Late Thursday, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R., Tenn.) said he believed the president acted improperly but that his actions didn’t rise to impeachable conduct. And on Friday, Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski said she didn’t “believe the continuation of this process will change anything.”

The two announcements sealed the motion’s fate.

The delay until next week will place Mr. Trump’s fate in an unusual procedural purgatory. While he is all but certain to be cleared of impeachable offenses in the Republican-controlled Senate, he may have to wait days before an official acquittal, during a hectic time in U.S. politics.

Voters in Iowa will caucus on Monday in the first contest of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, in which several members of the Senate are competing, and Mr. Trump is set to give his State of the Union address on Tuesday.

Republicans said holding the vote on Wednesday was the easiest way to reach the preordained conclusion without a time-consuming procedural battle with Democrats.

“The outcome is certain but the pain and suffering are optional. We decided to eliminate as much of the optional pain and suffering as possible,” said Sen. Roy Blunt (R., Mo.).

“It’s a fait accompli,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) said. “We know how it’s going to turn out.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) called the president before he introduced the resolution setting the vote for Wednesday, said a person familiar with the matter, and Mr. Trump signed off on it.

One idea floated at a closed-door GOP meeting late Friday was that if the final impeachment vote is delayed until Wednesday, Mr. Trump could request to move the date of his State of the Union until after that vote, two people familiar with the matter said. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) would need to formally extend an invitation for a new date.

While a simple majority was necessary to consider more evidence, two-thirds of the Senate would be needed to vote to convict Mr. Trump for him to be removed from office.

The question of bringing in new evidence was at the heart of the nine days of arguments and questioning, pitting Democrats—who want to acquire additional material to bolster their case—against Republicans who have sought to quickly vote to acquit Mr. Trump.

In their final arguments on Friday, Democrats warned that moving forward with the trial without considering additional evidence could set a dangerous precedent for future attempts at Congressional investigations into the executive branch.

“This will set a new precedent, this will be cited in impeachment trials from this point until the end of history,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who served as the lead impeachment manager. “If the Senate allows President Trump’s obstruction to stand, it effectively nullifies the impeachment power. It will allow future presidents to decide whether they want their misconduct to be investigated or not.” ...

That is a frightening list of Commie Cowardly Traitors 

who so blatantly hate America, and love-love-love Putin. 

No true believer in Democracy can vote for a Commie-Republican 

who voted for that Scam Trail.
