WH Believes Multiple GOP Senators Will Turn On Trump And Demand Witnesses At Impeachment Trial
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced last week that he has enough votes in the Senate to reject the Democrats’ request to guarantee witnesses at the impeachment trial. But according to a new report, the White House is not so certain that all Republicans in the Senate are on board with McConnell.
According to CBS News, the White House believes that “at least four Republicans, and likely more” will vote to allow specific witnesses after the evidence has been reviewed.
According to the report, Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Susan Collins (R-ME) are the main names that are believed to vote to allow witnesses.
Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), a usually staunch pro-Trump vote who is facing one of the most difficult Senate elections in 2020, could feel pressure to do so as well, the report states.
