In a stunning blow to the Dems fading impeachment dreams, it seems Jerry Nadler just lost on key swing GOP member.
The GOP has a few Senators who literally will control the rest of these proceedings as a majority vote wins the day on any impeachment issue.
Lisa Murkowski is one of these key swing GOP Senators. Now, she is a fierce independent, just like the people she represents and has often gone against Trump and the GOP.
But remember, she won as a write-in candidate so she has no fears of losing support back home. In short, she will do whatever she wants and that is why her comments about Nadler’s miserable performance are so huge.
If the Dems lose her, the easiest get the have outside Susan Collins, they are doomed indeed.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski says she was insulted by a House manager’s assertion that Republicans who voted against impeachment witnesses were engaged in a “cover-up” for President Trump.
“I took it as very offensive,” Murkowski told reporters in the basement of the Senate Wednesday afternoon. “As one who is listening attentively and working hard to get to a fair process, I was offended.”
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., is one of the House managers presenting the case against the president. As the Tuesday night session stretched past midnight, he accused Republican senators of abetting Trump.
“I see a lot of senators voting for a cover-up, voting to deny witnesses, an absolutely indefensible vote, obviously a treacherous vote,” he said.
A reporter asked Murkowski what she thought of the statement as she made her way toward the Senate chamber for the second day of the trial.
She was among many Republicans who condemned the remark
