While ABC praised Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) for his open criticism of the president, the "real reporters" were beside themselves that other Republican leaders refuse to prejudge a pending impeachment trial for President Trump.

ABC Correspondent David Wright played a clip of Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) explaining that she would be "acting as a juror as I did in the Clinton impeachment trial" and later noted "Democrats want to exploit the fact that many Republicans are reluctant to criticize the President. They hope to use that in their effort to retake the Senate."
