PBS: There Are 51 Votes To Approve Calling For Witnesses In Trump Impeachment Trial



PBS News Hour reporter Lisa Desjardins reported Monday evening that the New York Times report on John Bolton’s manuscript confirming Presiden Donald Trump’s bribery of Ukraine has tipped the scales and there were officially 51 votes in the U.S. Senate to approve calling for witnesses in Trump’s impeachment trial.

The development came a day after pieces of John Bolton’s manuscript were leaked to The Times. Now Republicans have turned to support the witnesses they once opposed.

GOP Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Susan Collins (R-ME) both voted against witnesses and were leaning against them until The Times broke the story on Sunday evening.
