Skip to comments.Senator Susan Collins Slams President Trump For ‘Asking China to Investigate’ Joe Biden
Posted on 10/05/2019 6:45:34 PM PDT by Hojczyk
The Maine senator was unequivocal in her statements, which came after a firefighters memorial service in Augusta on Saturday morning, joining Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and Ben Sasse, R-Nevada, in breaking rank with GOP support for the president.
I thought the president made a big mistake by asking China to get involved in investigating a political opponent, Collins said. Its completely inappropriate.
The presidents comments came days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, announced a formal impeachment probe into his attempt to solicit foreign help in an election, which is illegal and considered by many lawmakers to be a foundational threat to democracy.
Sen. Collins reiterated that she would not offer comment on the evidence, saying that not all of it is in yet, and that she hopes the impeachment process will be done with the seriousness that any impeachment proceeding deserves.
Susan Collins joined two other RINO Senators who recently criticized President Trump Senator Mitt Romney (UT) and Senator Ben Sasse (NE).
Even if the House of Representatives votes to impeach President Trump, 20 Republican Senators would have to flip on Trump in order to reach the required 67 votes to convict the president in the Senate.

She is up for election this year....The GOP is hopeless....
I, for one, am tired of that squeaky voiced creature from Maine. I dont care if she wins or not.
Sue Colins would rather the Chief Law Enforcer of this country not look into credible evidence that suggests that the Bidens are crooked.
So the BEST case scenario is we have this RINO bitch for 6 more years? Depressing.
Her and Tucker
Oh wait. I think that should be she and Tucker.
Thanks voters for this lightweight in government. Surely the northeast can do better.
Ben Sasse (is an ass) is running also, and should be primaried out along with Flimsey Grahamnesty.
If we don’t stop electing Amnesty Senators, they going to think we want amnesty for illegal aliens.
Peter Schweitzer ‘walking through’ Biden’s corrupt dealings with Ukraine and China:
Must watch video.
President Trump has a great sense of humor. China has been buying off American politicians for years. Would they admit their guilt? Lol
I dont understand how Trump wasnt able to flip West Virginia and Montana senate seats to make this stupid woman expendable.
She’s probably got a son who’s getting money from China.
All these peeps supported Mueller having unlimited reign and unlimited budget.
Recycling the RINOs.
Wonder why not a one had a problem with Comey, Strzok, or Baby Biden getting Billions.
Went right over her empty head.
Since The Revolution NOTHING good has come from the northeastern states. In fact, I have often wondered how the hell did the people that revolted against the king of England and started the revolution which founded this great republic devolve to such an extent.
And then, I visited Greece, the foundation of democracy, medicine, science, math, and philosophy. Now a poor decrepit country fill with lazy socialist parasites and I saw our countries future if we are not ever vigilant.
So Senator Collins wants to let corruption go unchecked?? She wants crime committed by politicians to become rampant?? How does Senator Collins propose bringing such criminals before the bar of justice??
"I thought the president made a big mistake by asking China to get involved in investigating a political opponent," Collins said. "It's completely inappropriate."
The president's comments came days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, announced a formal impeachment probe into his attempt to solicit foreign help in an election, which is illegal and considered by many lawmakers to be a foundational threat to democracy.
Sen. Collins reiterated that she would not offer comment on the evidence, saying that not all of it is in yet, and that she hopes the impeachment process "will be done with the seriousness that any impeachment proceeding deserves."
Errors all around, plus lack of discernment.
Trump did not ask China to get involved. He said he hoped they would, and I suspect many people hope the same thing, given the sweetheart deal that looks stinky.
Collins is suggesting that Biden is above the law because he is running for office. This is understandable coming from the privileged class.
The author of the article asserts as fact, falsehoods. Trump did not "solicit foreign help in an election." Also, much of "soliciting help," for example seeking information, is NOT ILLEGAL. This will be clear once the fact the DEMs did it is out. Suddenly the conduct will be "not a crime."
As for the impeachment process, what's with the "hope" thing. I'd hope the House was serious too, but it is obviously not a serious body. Not taking a vote, reading criminal conduct into a president interested in rooting out corruption (that is, always finding the worst construction).
Her Kavanaugh shine was a political stunt. She took heat for it, and is making amends. She is not principled.
I can tell you from personal experince, she doesn't care what her constituents think.
Guess they have stupid people in those states.
Always the same names from the senate when it comes to anti Trump and anti Republican positions. Waiting for Murkowski 3 - 2 - 1
