An impeachment trial decision just dropped and the news is spreading nationwide. The White House has been rocked by this announcement from a high-ranking GOP senator.

Many have speculated that Collins is trying to actually play both sides — she doesn’t seem to care for Trump very much, but she also wants the votes of his supporters. She is a Republican, after all.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said recently that witnesses haven’t been ruled out, however, he is at an impasse with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on how to move forward.
