(BREAKING WIDE) — Susan Collins Damned Schiff With Vote To Acquit Trump.

“I’m sure there are going to be people unhappy with me in Maine,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) told NBC News as she revealed she will vote to acquit Trump. “All I can do is apply the constitutional standard,” she said dealing a huge blow to Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi.

The democrats are terrified of having a few Dem Senators vote to acquit and no GOP Senators to vote to convict, as happened in the House. They don’t want to appear partisan, nor can they afford to. Too late, at least for Collins.

“I believe that the president has learned from this case,” Collins said in an exclusive interview with “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell on Tuesday, before a speech on the Senate floor about her decision. “The president has been impeached. That’s a pretty big lesson.”

The Senate plans to vote Wednesday on whether to convict Mr. Trump on two articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Collins and Senator Mitt Romney were the only two Republicans who voted last week to allow witnesses in the impeachment trial, an effort that ultimately failed.

Despite her support for more witnesses, Collins said she would vote to acquit Mr. Trump of the charges, arguing that his actions don’t amount to high crimes and misdemeanors.

“I’m voting to acquit. Because I do not believe that the behavior alleged reaches the high bar in the Constitution for overturning an election, and removing a duly elected president,” Collins said.
