Dems fume as CNN reports 15 GOP Senators chose not to attend impeachment trial

Earlier today, CNN’s Manu Raju tweeted:

Just popped into the chamber and in my time there I saw 15 empty GOP seats. (Didn’t see Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul. Also saw Jim Risch in the basement on his phone.) Thom Tillis was visible in the GOP cloakroom reading his phone.

Raju added in a later tweet “Senators clearly are growing weary on the third day of trial.”

CNN followed with a report:

“15 GOP” trended on Twitter with Democrats angry about the Republican Senators not in attendance.
