(RepublicanNews.org) – Donald Trump’s impeachment trial may have ended on February 13, but the problems are just beginning for the seven Republican senators who defected, sided with Democrats and voted to convict him. One of them, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), already had a nasty habit of turning on Trump prior to her vote to find him guilty.
Now, she’s facing serious pushback from Maine GOP members for her latest betrayal. The leaders of Maine’s Republican county committees met to discuss the possibility of censuring Collins and whether or not to call a statewide party meeting to discuss the matter on Monday, February 15.

One attendee said he didn’t think Trump “was treated fairly.” Another said the trial was nothing more than “mudslinging,” adding that with Trump out of office, it was time to “let it go.”
It remains unclear what’s next for Collins as the executive director for Maine’s GOP did not respond to messages. However, it’s worth mentioning that Trump endorsed Collin’s reelection bid in December 2019 and in September 2020 — and this is the thanks he gets!
