A key Senate Republican said she’ll “likely” vote to call witnesses later in President Trump’s impeachment trial.
Sen. Susan Collins of Maine said in a statement Tuesday, “It is likely that I would support a motion to subpoena witnesses” after hearing arguments from the impeachment managers, as well as President Trump’s defense lawyers.
The article goes on to state the following:
Collins told the Washington Examiner she is working with a small group of Republicans on a plan to call witnesses, but it’s unclear whether four GOP lawmakers would back the move. That’s the number needed to provide Democrats with the 51 votes necessary to summon a witness.

I think Collins’s language is actually difficult for her to climb down on (especially in an election year). She has repeatedly said she’s a “likely” yes on witnesses. On votes where she’s planning to take a dive she usually doesn’t go that far. https://t.co/o6HzcYoaVX

Susan Collins reiterates she will vote against witnesses and documents at this stage of the trial. & she anticipates voting for witnesses later.
