Collins and Romney voted with the Democrats.
Defeated, 49 YES, 51 NO.
Collins and Romney voted with the Democrats to Kavanaugh the trial.
After nearly two weeks of the #ImpeachmentTrial, the Senate just voted to move forward without additional witnesses by a vote of 51-49. We have heard more than enough. The House Managers failed to make their case. It is time to acquit @realDonaldTrump.

A majority of the U.S. Senate has determined that the numerous witnesses and 28,000-plus pages of documents already in evidence are sufficient to judge the House Managers’ accusations and end this impeachment trial.

This is why I told the Judiciary Committee that it was a monumental mistake to rush the impeachment vote on an incomplete record and hand over their case to the other house and the opposing party. This will go down as a blunder of historic measure by the House leadership.

Schumer: "No witnesses, no documents in an impeachment trial is a perfidy. It is a grand tragedy. One of the worst tragedies that the Senate has overcome. America will remember this day, unfortunately, where the Senate did not live up to its responsibilities."

[There was evidence. Lots of Evidence. Lots of witness transcripts and videos. House could have obtained more in the House and Courts, but didn't bother.] https://t.co/xGPStPxYus
