Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) took to the Senate floor to make her remarks on the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. Collins was one of the multiple possible swing vote Senators.
Collins voted to acquit President Clinton when he was impeached. Collins stated she also will vote to acquit President Trump. Former Director of U.S. Office of Government Ethics Walter Shaub @waltshaub tweeted about Collins’s decision. See the tweet below:
Collins voted to call witnesses. By now voting to acquit without having obtained information the administration withheld, Collins reveals that her vote on witnesses was a politically expedient maneuver to help her election chances without impeding her partisan aim of acquittal. https://t.co/b3Ql11ftbR— Walter Shaub (@waltshaub) February 4, 2020
This leaves only one ‘wildcard’ Republican, Mitt Romney Senator of Utah. Romney has yet to speak publicly about which way he will vote on impeachment. There is still time left today for Romney to come to the floor of the Senate, and make his remarks on impeachment. The Senate is set to take a vote tomorrow on the two articles of impeachment.
Last evening, Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) gave her speech on the Senate floor in which she stated, the foundation of this impeachment was rotten. Murkowski spoke negatively about all involved in this impeachment, including the media. Murkowski also said she would vote to acquit President Donald Trump.
It remains to be seen if any Democrats will break with party and vote to acquit President Trump. Tonight, President Trump will address the nation in the State of the Union Address. Some in the media are speculating, that Trump will give a brief acknowledgment of the impeachment in his address.
