U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine announced Tuesday that she, too, would prefer to hear testimony before casting her lot in the upcoming impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Collins joins fellow Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, in saying she will not stand in lockstep with their leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell, in rubber-stamping the president’s acquittal before the trial even begins.

Collins and Murkowski are the only two Republicans to date to say they would prefer McConnell allow witnesses to testify and permit evidence to be presented in the upcoming trial.
