Friday marks a pivotal day in the Senate’s impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Senators will first decide whether to call witnesses. If they then vote against witnesses, they could move straight to votes on the articles of impeachment. Friday’s session will start at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.
With 53 Republicans and 47 Democrats currently in the Senate, four Republicans and all the Democrats will need to vote for witnesses in order for the trial to continue. The four likely Republicans to vote in favor of witnesses are split.
Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah have both said they will vote for witness testimony. Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee said late Thursday he will vote against witnesses. Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska remains publicly undecided.
