Senate Democrats may fall short of getting four Senate Republicans to approve a measure that would allow for additional witnesses and documents that would extend President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, according to a report released Friday.
Ten senior staffers for Senate Republicans said they believe Senate Democrats will fall short of getting four Republicans to vote for additional witnesses for President Trump’s impeachment trial.
Democrats have reportedly lobbied many Republicans to vote for additional witnesses during the Senate impeachment trial.
Romney, Collins, and Murkowski have expressed some level of interest in calling for additional witnesses; however, it remains uncertain if Democrats will convince Sen. Alexander to vote for additional witnesses.
Alexander who is retiring from the Senate remains undecided on whether to vote for additional witnesses.
