Six GOP senators sided with the Democrats to vote in favor of the second impeachment trial. In a 56-44 vote on Tuesday, the upper chamber passed the resolution saying the trial is constitutional.

The dissenting Republicans included Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.).

All previously voted with Democrats on Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) resolution to determine the trial unconstitutional.

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) was the only Republican to flip from that previous vote. He said he switched based on the arguments which were presented to him.

“So if you have an impartial juror, and I’m trying to make a decision based upon the facts as presented on this issue, then the House managers did a much better job,” Cassidy stated.

The Senate impeachment trial is now set to reconvene at noon local time on Wednesday.
