Senators in the United States discuss resolution condemning Trump

Democratic Senator Tim Caine and Republican Senator Susan Collins are privately discussing with their counterparts a bipartisan resolution censuring former President Donald Trump. This is reported by Axios, citing sources.

The interlocutors of the publication noted that the Democrats are interested in passing the resolution if at least ten senators from the Republican Party publicly support it. Thus, a 60-vote advantage will be provided, which is necessary for the adoption of the resolution in the Senate.

At the same time, it is not yet clear whether this resolution will be adopted instead of the Trump impeachment trial, the sources added.

Recall that the US Senate postponed the consideration of impeachment until February 9. US President Joe Biden questioned the success of this procedure, as votes of at least 17 Republican senators are required to confirm a conviction.

Earlier, 55 senators voted, five of whom are Republicans, found the impeachment legal, and 45 illegal.
