The Washington Post reports:
Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.), a moderate who is friendly with the White House, on Monday asked his colleagues to consider censuring President Trump as it concludes the Senate impeachment trial.
Manchin has prepared a censure resolution for fellow senators to consider in the coming days, which would be a less severe rebuke than removal from office for Trump’s efforts in pressuring Ukraine to investigate his domestic political rival.
“What the president did was wrong,” Manchin said in a speech on the Senate floor. It is not yet clear how Manchin will vote Wednesday on the two articles of impeachment and ousting Trump.
