  1. Oh no Susan Collins is wagging her finger again everyone hit the deck😑

  2. She’s just saving face with the Republicans!!!

    • her face is terrible. hope she is planning to retire soon

    • if Bolton’s ‘ in the room ‘ description of the conversation does not sway GOP senators to call for him as a witness, nothing will. And that makes 51 GOP senators just as corrupt & complicit Trump & the WH…

    Collin’s reputation for walking the straight line is all so much baloney. She’s as insincere and and as ethically malleable as all her Party colleagues.

  4. You can’t Believe Nothing that comes from her mouth..a FAKE

      Chief Justice Roberts is a Republican seated by a a Republican president. I would be surprised if he did anything at all, other than window dressing aka DECORUM.

  7. She’ll fold, as always.

  8. So 70% of Americans calling for witnesses wasn’t good enough for her?

    • @mitchellkarera
      I wouldn’t give you a drop of water if you were dying of thirst!

      @Colin Mahoney Paraphrasing Bob Zimmerman: ” I don’t believe you. You’re a liar. You would help a dying person because you couldn’t stand yourself if you didn’t.”

  9. The manuscript will not be under oath. Bolton, himself, would be.

    • Buts it telling that Bolton has already volunteered himself to testifying under oath should the Senate call on him. Trump on the other hand refuses to testify and defend himself; he had also pressured staffers and others in his admin to stonewall the investigation at all costs. Republican voters are in that “this is fine” house burning meme at this point if they don’t see the obvious cover up taking place.

      @Nam Pham .Wrong…

    • Corporations are “people too” according to Mittins, so perhaps a manuscript can be a “people too”.

    • @William Burgess what specifically is “wrong”?

    • @Nam Pham I agree. Bolton said he would, but he needs them to subpoena him, first. I suppose that affords him some legal cover that he can say he had no choice, but to testify. I wonder if it has to do with his publishing contract, which is probably for millions, that he can’t reveal what’s in the book until it’s released. That’s the only reason I can think of, that he wouldn’t just testify, if he’s willing to testify. A subpoena might legally release him.

  10. Don’t count on Susan Collins to do the Right thing….keep it moving.

  11. Please stop referring to Susan Collins as a moderate Republican. She lost all credibility as a so-called moderate when she voted for Kavanaugh.

      Collins and McConnell are serving their last terms.

      @Katrina Sandoval, there were many witness who were prevented from testifying during the Kavanaugh hearing.  Weren’t you paying any attention?  It was free.  How’s that Qanonsense working out for you?

    • “Bolton advocated for another U.S. invasion of Iraq, following the first Gulf War, as far back as the 1990s, when he called on President Clinton to oust Saddam Hussein. Later, as under secretary of state for arms control, during President George W. Bush’s first term in office, he told the BBC the U.S. was “confident that Saddam Hussein has hidden weapons of mass destruction and production facilities in Iraq.” The evidence used to go to war in 2003 might have long been deemed mistaken, and some of the war’s most ardent supporters might have expressed second thoughts since then given the immense cost of human life and the destabilization of the region, but Bolton has maintained that deposing Saddam was worth the effort—even if the decisions made after the invasion weren’t always right.”

    I take EVERYTHING Collins says with a grain of salt.

  13. If they don’t hear Bolton’s testimony they are participating in the cover-up.

  14. Wishy Washy Susan Collins 🤔

  15. Sydney Robinson | January 27, 2020 at 4:52 PM | Reply

    I wouldn’t believe a word out of Susan Collins mouth.She’s just like Rand Paul. They are so irrelevant they always pull this stunt to get attention for a few days then fall right back in line

  16. She’ll fold as soon as Moscow Mitch McConnell snaps his crusty old fingers

  17. Will Collins have the courage to call for witnesses? I’m sure Mitch will be giving her some career advice.

  18. Legend has it that every time Siberia Susan tells a lie her head bobbles

  19. Nancy Walkling | January 27, 2020 at 5:39 PM | Reply

    Collins loves the attention, but she’ll fold like a sheet when it comes time to make a decision. Get her out she’s distracting.

  20. I’ll take Bolton’s mustache over Trump’s hair every day of the week.
