Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, released a statement understood procedures to clarify on Thursday to their attitude to the President Trump the impending impeachment and claimed that her previous comments were taken out of context and incorrectly.

“There is a lot of MIS-characterization and misunderstanding about my position on the process that the Senate should be followed for the impeachment process,” began the statement. “Instead, my position is other forwarded by the interpretation, I wanted to direct it.”

Collins, considered a moderate, informed views on how the process should play out, and recommended, to allow it to mirror former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1999, for the cross-party input.

“This process [1999] for the opportunity for both sides to state their case and for the senators to ask questions through the Chief Justice,” she wrote.

“At the conclusion of the phase of the 1999 trial, the Senate agreed to a motion to subpoena witnesses and to admit further material had heard of the case, and the questions had been asked,” Collins. “I voted in favour of motion subpoenaing witnesses.”

You also said, it would be best if the senators from each party were allowed to ask questions before the chamber keeps an up-or-down vote on the calling of witnesses and the subpoenaing of documents. Collins added that she would not support any action until the legislature had a chance to ask.


“I need to hear, to argue the case and answered the questions, I tend to believe that additional information would be helpful,” the statement. “It is likely that I would support a motion for the summoning of witnesses to this point in the study, only as I in the year 1999.”

The Maine Republican claims that no decision about which witnesses to, and open to listen to both sides before giving a final conclusion.

“I have no decision on a particular witness,” she wrote. “If we want to at the appropriate point in the study, I would like to, from both sides and witnesses, if at all, you call.”

Collins, 67, announced plans to locate their plans, the re-election to the Senate in the last month. This would be her fifth term in office, re-elected, if. She won her first U.S. Senate race in 1996 and most recently defeated Democrat Shenna Bellows in the 2014.


Despite their moderate success, the Democrats are likely to try to tilt the seat by focusing on their support for trump the tax legislation in 2017, and their Central role in the confirmation of the Supreme court, Brett Kavanaugh in the year 2018.

After the swearing-in of Chief Justice John Roberts and the senators, the said jurors on Thursday, McConnell, the hearing will be continued EST on Tuesday to 1 PM.
