Forget about getting some Republicans to flip and support impeachment….
According to a new CBS Report, the Democrats might have bigger worries.
A new report says that three prominent centrist Dems are considering voting AGAINST impeachment!
Take a look:
Here's more, from CBS:
The Senate reconvened Thursday afternoon for the final day of written questions to House managers and President Trump's defense team in his impeachment trial, the last session before a crucial vote on witnesses on Friday.
Senators peppered both sides with submitted questions about the president's efforts to get Ukraine to investigate his political rivals and the legal theories underpinning the two articles of impeachment against him. The president's attorneys argued the president's conduct does not rise to the level of an impeachable offense as Democrats hammered home their insistence that the Senate call new witnesses, particularly former national security adviser John Bolton.
Bolton reportedly alleges in a manuscript of his book that the president tied hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to Ukraine's willingness to announce investigations, an accusation the president and his team deny.
Chief Justice John Roberts, who is presiding over the trial and reading the questions aloud, shot down an attempt by Senator Rand Paul to ask a question that included the alleged name of the whistleblower whose complaint ultimately led to Mr. Trump's impeachment.
And from The Hill:
Two red-state Democratic senators signaled on Saturday that they are undecided on whether to convict President Trump and ultimately remove him from office.
The comments came after three days of opening arguments from House impeachment managers and as the president's legal team started to lay out its case in a brief Saturday session.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) told reporters he takes his oath of impartiality "very seriously." He noted that while he thought Democrats did a "good job," he is eager to hear from Trump's' team and will "see where we go from there."
"I'm as impartial as I can possibly be, as I've always been. I'm wide open on this, and we'll see where the facts go," Manchin said.
Sen. Doug Jones. (D-Ala.) said he believes House Democrats have made a "compelling case" but added that he wants to listen to the defense being mounted by Trump's legal team.
"I'm hoping to hear the facts and the rebuttal from the president. So I think that's only appropriate," Jones said.
Manchin and Jones, who hail from deeply red states, are viewed by Republicans as two of the Democrats most likely to vote to acquit Trump.
GOP senators previously told The Hill that they believe the vote to acquit Trump will be bipartisan. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) has been tight-lipped about her thinking but is also viewed as a potential swing vote.
"It wouldn't surprise me if we got one or two Democrats. It looks to me over in the House, the Republicans seem to be solid and the Democrats seem to be divided," McConnell said last year.
