Toomey said, “I think President Biden missed a big opportunity to say you know a painful…partisan impeachment exercise that [Toomey voted for] will not result in a conviction may not be a great thing for the country.”
But, while some Republicans have already announced they will vote against impeaching Trump…, Toomey [who has said President Trump “committed impeachable offenses“] has not made up his mind yet.
“My responsibility like all senators will be to listen to the arguments made on each side and make a decision on that side,” Toomey said.
The impeachment trial is scheduled to start on Feb. 9.
