Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) Announces She Will Vote to Acquit President Trump

Rep Collins on Tuesday said she will vote to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment.

“I do not believe that the House has met its burden of showing that the president’s conduct, however flawed, warrants the extreme step of immediate removal from office, nor does the record support the assertion by the House managers that the president must not remain in office one moment longer,” Collins said in a Senate floor speech.


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday implored his colleagues to acquit President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment when the Senate takes a final vote in his trial Wednesday at 4 p.m.

“We must vote to reject the House’s abuse of power, vote to protect our institutions, vote to reject new precedents that would reduce the framers’ design to rubble, vote to keep factional fever from boiling over and scorching our Republic,” McConnell, R-Ky., said on the Senate floor. “I urge every one of our colleagues to cast the vote on the common good clearly required, vote to acquit the president of these charges.”
