Sen. Lamar Alexander, Republican from Tennessee, just announced he will vote against witnesses and documents.
Here's what he said in his statement:
“I worked with other senators to make sure that we have the right to ask for more documents and witnesses, but there is no need for more evidence to prove something that has already been proven and that does not meet the United States Constitution’s high bar for an impeachable offense."
Here's what this means: With Alexander announcing he is a no on witnesses and documents, and Sen. Susan Collins announcing that she is yes, it means there are 50 votes against moving ahead, and the impeachment trial will likely end as early as Friday night. Sen. Lisa Murkowski says she will announce her vote on witnesses tomorrow morning.
