Republican Senator Bill Cassidy FLIPS on impeachment – votes with Democrats

Trump’s margin in the Senate impeachment trial is growing slimmer with the news of another defection in the Republican ranks.

The Associated Press reports:

Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana joined Democrats in voting against ending Donald Trump’s impeachment trial Tuesday, a surprise reversal that Cassidy said was a response to the former president’s lawyers doing “a terrible job” of arguing their case.

Cassidy was among six Republican senators who sided with Democrats on the question of whether a former president can be tried after leaving office. The Louisiana senator’s position was a switch from January, when he voted to end the proceedings on the grounds that they were unconstitutional.

What is your take on Cassidy’s flip?
