President Trumps Senate trial may have witnesses after all.
Sen. Susan Collins on Friday confirmed she is working with a fairly small group of fellow Republican senators to ensure witnesses can be called.
We should be completely open to calling witnesses, Collins (R-Maine) said Friday, the Bangor Daily News reported.
I am hopeful that we can reach an agreement on how to proceed with the trial that will allow the opportunity for both the House and the presidents counsel if they choose to do so.
Mitt Romney (R-Utah) has also had recent conversations with the Senates minority Democratic leadership, one source familiar with the negotiations told The Post on Thursday.

Dismissal is the only Constitutional response. These ignorant, traitorous wretches in the GOP need to be removed at the next possible election.
I’d bet big on that small group of Republican Senators including Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney.
I’ve got to put earplugs in. Otherwise I’ll lose all my steam.
And now apparently Lee.
The Turtle has already declared he has the 51 votes needed to dispense with the necessity of witnesses, at least from the start of the trial. I don’t think he will be too happy if Collins, Romney, or other fellow-traveler Republicans undercut him on this now.
The GOP wants Trump gone.... if they can drive down his poll numbers so he loses the election....
They will say they acquitted Trump...it is not there fault
Hunter Bidens political gifts to several Senate Dems include donations to:
Sens Leahy, Menendez, Whitehouse, Cardin, Cantwell.....and presidential candidate Cory Booker.
BTW, did Hunter's donations come from the money he made from his and Joe's Ukrainian shakedown.....
........or did Hunter use money gleaned from the billion-dollar China shakedown?.....cackle......
FWIW, USAG Eric Holder, in private practice, represented the Swiss private bank UBS. Because of this, he recused himself
from participating in DOJ's investigation of UBS's abetting of tax evasion by US account-holders and the prosecution of Brad Birkenfeld.
As AG, Holder also recused himself from Roger Clemens' contempt of Congress prosecution because the pitcher was once a client of his law firm.) WIKI
Collins was included, as she was the ringleader mentioned in the article.
Et tu, Lee?
“Mitt Romney (R-Utah) has also had recent conversations with the Senates minority Democratic leadership”
They are plotting with Schumer? Resign.
DANGER! DANGER! YOUNG WILL ROBINSON!
Do not get sucked into this BS folks. There were no witnesses in the Clinton trial and there won’t be any in the Trump trial.
why do the democrats always vote in lock step... and a few Republicans always, always sell us out to them?!?
That’s what this impeachment was all about. Drive Trump’s poll numbers down. Same with the Mueller “Report”. That was to get the Rats into the House majority in 2018.
If there is a binder with a small group of Republicans, inside it will be found two pages, one for each of these clowns.
Thank you. You always contribute excellent points to discussions here. I hadn’t even thought of recusals yet. Nice work!
