Susan Collins Tried to Walk Back Her Claim that Trump Learned His Lesson and Her Clarification Is Peak Susan Collins

Trump Flipped Out After Democratic Senator Appeared on Fox News and Now the Senator Is Trolling Him Hard

GOP Senator Gets Slammed for Questioning Patriotism of Ukrainian-American War Hero Impeachment Witness
Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was one of the first witnesses in the House of Representatives' initial impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
