Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) announced that she was voting to acquit President Donald Trump for his "poor judgment." Just hours before his State of the Union Address, Collins announced that against removing Trump from office because it had never been done before.
She was quickly blasted for her illogical argument that treated Maine voters like they were "gullible" enough to believe everything she tells them.

Others blasted Collins for demanding a standard for impeachment that flies in the face of the rules.
