Maine Senator Susan Collins joined with her fellow RINO Senators Mitt Romney and Ben Sasse to criticize President Trump amidst the ongoing turmoil surrounding Democrats’ impeachment probe.
On Saturday, Collins blasted Trump for telling a group of reporters earlier this week, “China should start an investigation into the Bidens. Because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine.”
“I thought the president made a big mistake by asking China to get involved in investigating a political opponent,” said Collins. “It’s completely inappropriate.”
She went on to say that she would not comment on evidence involved in the impeachment ploy, but that she hopes the process “will be done with the seriousness that any impeachment proceeding deserves.”
Collins’ comments came after a memorial service for fallen firefighters in Augusta, Maine.
“Should the articles of impeachment come to the Senate — and right now I’m going to guess that they will — I will be acting as a juror as I did in the Clinton impeachment trial,” Collins said.
On the other hand, the Republican senator did also say that she was concerned Adam Schiff, chair of the House Intelligence Committee, “misrepresented and misled people about what was in the transcript in the call.”
President Trump and his supporters have insisted that he has every right to ask foreign leaders for help in investigating corruption cases, as he has done in regard to former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Indeed, in the world outside of the Beltway, it makes complete sense that our elected officials would attack and expose corruption as Trump has done, but of course those D.C. swamp creatures mired in the muck are running scared and lashing out at their nemesis in the White House.
Clearly, the impeachment effort by Democrats to take down the President is very shaky and deceptive.

The Washington Post found that @RepAdamSchiff “clearly made a statement that was false.”
It’s clear that Chairman Schiff has a major problem telling the truth. He has no credibility to be leading any part of this “inquiry.” https://t.co/1pE2eVgXRt

Ambassador Volker’s full interview yesterday directly undermined the salacious impeachment narrative Democrats are trying to sell you.
They don’t want you to see that. It’s why they’re leaking supplemental documents and text messages out of context.#ReleaseTheTranscript

Romney also has gone out of his way to try to undermine Trump. He has focused his criticisms on the president and completely ignored the Biden family malfeasance.
Before the transcript of the call and the whistleblower complaint were released, Romney tweeted:
If the President asked or pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rival, either directly or through his personal attorney, it would be troubling in the extreme. Critical for the facts to come out.
— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) September 22, 2019
Since the those exonerating pieces of evidence have been released showing no wrongdoing on the part of the president, Romney has not said or done a thing to support Trump. In fact, he has continued to blast the president:
By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.

Sasse is another RINO failing to stand behind the president. He told the Omaha World-Herald: “Americans don’t look to Chinese commies for the truth. If the Biden kid broke laws by selling his name to Beijing, that’s a matter for American courts, not communist tyrants running torture camps.”
