GOP leadership tries to avoid defections on possible witness vote?
"GOP leaders are actively reaching out to Republican senators who could potentially defect – Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Lamar Alexander of Tennesse and Mitt Romney of Utah – and are trying to keep them in the fold, according to two GOP aides.
Allowing new witnesses would bring a wild-card factor to the trial, lengthen the process and potentially set up a protracted court fight over executive privilege.
After the trial recessed for the dinner break, Collins and Murkowski had an animated conversation on the Senate floor and Collins pointed up at the reporters above her in the balcony.
The Maine Republican was overheard saying she didn’t want the journalists overlooking from the front row and thought it should be emptied."

those Senators aren't going anywhere unless they want to lose their cushy jobs in D.C. All Trump has do is show up in their states, and tell the crowd they voted with the Dems. whoever is Republican and running against them will win. and they know it!

LOL. Nadler and Schiff seem to be doing a good job of annoying both Collins and Murkowski by accusing ALL Republicans of engaging in a cover-up. Well played, Democrats.

I'm sorry to hear that about Collins. Or is that Fox just trying to smear her because she might have a spine and vote to remove Trump? Most of the Republicans seem to have turned their backs on what they claimed to believe in, and what they ran for office on.

If the House case was a "slam dunk" then why are liberals so desperate for there to be new "hearsay" witnesses?

Those RINOs will fall in line like the other spineless cowards in the GOP.
