Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) was one of the few Republicans in the Senate that Democrats were betting on to stand up to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and allow a fair impeachment trial to be held.
But according to Politico, Collins is now supporting McConnell’s rigged impeachment trial because Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) decided to support her political opponent.
“I don’t think Chuck Schumer is very interested in my opinion since he’s just launched a website in Maine and just committed an additional $700,000 in additional negative advertising from the Majority Forward PAC,” said Collins. “I don’t think he’s really very interested in doing anything but trying to defeat me by telling lies to the people of Maine. And you can quote me on that.”
Winning elections should not be the main priority when there’s an unlawful president sitting in the Oval Office.
