More information is coming out about the decision by House impeachment managers to refrain from calling witnesses during Donald Trump's Senate trial.
On Saturday, the Senate voted 55-45 to allow witnesses, but none were called.
"During the Senate break after the witness vote Saturday, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) twice came into the managers' room off the Senate floor, according to multiple Democratic sources. Coons pressed House Democrats to relent, saying their quest for witnesses would cost them Republican votes to convict and maybe even some Democrats," Politico reports.
"The jury is ready to vote," Coons told the House managers, according to a senior House Democratic aide. "People want to get home for Valentine's Day."
