Trump White House Threatens Republican Senators With Ghastly Warning
According to a confidant of President Donald Trump who spoke with CBS News, Republican senators were warned before the impeachment trial: “vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.”
So far, Republicans appear to be staying in line, with many senators saying they have heard no new information regarding Trump's alleged abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
But Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) noted that his GOP colleagues "voted nine times on Tuesday to hear nothing new."
