‘Having Additional Information Would Be Helpful’: Collins ‘Likely’ To Vote For More Witnesses At Impeachment Trial

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who is up for reelection in November, has been one of the few Republican Senators that are willing to side with Democrats during the impeachment trial of Donald Trump.

She has been back and forth on whether she would side with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and not allow additional witnesses at the trial or if she would side with Democrats and have a fair trial.

But now, according to Washington Post correspondent Seung Min Kim, Collins has suggested that it is “likely” she will vote to call additional witnesses after the initial impeachment case from the House is laid out in the Senate, saying that such information “would be helpful.”

According to Min Kim, Collins said the following:

“While I need to hear the case argued and the questions answered, I tend to believe having additional information would be helpful. It is likely that I would support a motion to call witnesses at that point in the trial just as I did in 1999.”
