“I would be acting as a juror,” Republican Senator Susan Collins (ME) explained to the press as to why she would not be prejudging President Trump ahead of a possible Senate impeachment trial. But that wasn’t a good enough reason, according to the way the folks on ABC’s Good Morning America were huffing on Sunday.
In the midst of his Sunday report, ABC correspondent David Wright touted Utah Senator Mitt Romney for being “the first Republican senator to criticize Trump's conduct directly.” “Last night Susan Collins of Maine cautiously joined Romney,” he added before saying she didn’t do it well enough: “Collins, who faces a tough re-election fight, called the President's appeal to China completely inappropriate, but wouldn't say whether Trump was out of line pressuring Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.”
“I would be acting as a juror as I did in the Clinton impeachment trial. So I don't want to prejudge the evidence. Plus not all the evidence is in yet,” Collins explained in the soundbite Wright shared.
Wright touted how “Democrats, not surprisingly, have been more vocal in their criticism especially the Democrats running for president against Trump.” He then played back-to-back soundbites of two Democratic Senators running for president.
