Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) spoke to reporters on Tuesday shortly after announcing that she would be voting to acquit Donald Trump to give a more in-depth reason behind her decision.
According to Bloomberg reporter Steven Dennis, Collins claimed that Trump has already been reprimanded by being criticized over his actions and that’s why she’s voting to acquit him.
She also claimed that she would not be considering censure because it was not proposed earlier.
