BREAKING: Republican Susan Collins, key swing-vote senator, announces she will vote to acquit Trump

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY BREAKING NEWS) — Republican Susan Collins, key swing-vote senator, announces she will vote to acquit Trump.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced on Tuesday that she will vote to acquit President Trump on the two House-passed articles of impeachment. 

“I do not believe that the House has met its burden of showing that the president’s conduct, however flawed, warrants the extreme step of immediate removal from office,” Collins said from the Senate floor. 

Collins, while saying she would vote to acquit, called Trump’s actions “improper” and said they “demonstrated very poor judgement.” She added that there was “conflicting evidence” about why Trump asked Ukraine President Zelensky to help “look into” former Vice President Biden and his son Hunter Biden. 

“It was wrong for President Trump to mention former Vice President Biden on that phone call,” Collins said.
