Same as it ever was:
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), a key vote in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial, is distancing herself from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) close coordination with President Trump’s legal team.
She said McConnell’s plan to let Trump’s legal team dictate the Senate GOP’s position on the trial “would not be the approach that I’ve taken.”
“The only people I’ve consulted with thus far are experts from the Congressional Research Service,” she added. “I sat down with them for a session last week.”
