Only 5 GOP Senators voted with Democrats to reject an effort by Kentucky Senator Rand Paul to declare Trump’s impeachment trial unconstitutional.
The 5 Republican Senators who voted with Democrats were:
Utah Senator Mitt Romney
Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski
Maine Senator Susan Collins
Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse and
Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey
With only 5 GOP Senators wanting to move forwards towards a trial, it is increasingly likely Democrats will fail to obtain the 17 GOP Senatorial votes they would need to convict Trump.
Rand Paul explained “if we are going to put every politician in jail, are we going to impeach every politician who has used the words ‘fight’ figuratively in a speech? Shame.”
“I want this body on record. Every last person here,” Paul added.
