Enough GOP Senators Are Now On Board To Force A Vote On Allowing Witnesses In Trump’s Impeachment Trial

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tried to stop Democrats from allowing witnesses to appear at Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. But it appears that there are now enough Republican Senators siding with Democrats that could overturn McConnell’s plan.

According to Bloomberg News’ Laura Litvan, there are now enough Republican Senators joining with Democrats to force a vote on whether or not to call witnesses and allow additional documents.

Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who is retiring at the end of his term, just joined a list of GOP Senators who have sided with Democrats. That list includes GOP Senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney – plus 45 Democrats and 2 Independents – to reach, Litvan says, the “magic number” of 51 Senators who want “a guaranteed vote on whether to call witnesses or more documents later in the Trump impeachment trial.”
