The news comes as Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell announced he will vote for Trump’s acquittal.
“I think the end result of this impeachment trial is crystal clear to everybody … Donald Trump will be acquitted,” Ted Cruz said according to the Hill. “And every person in the senate chamber understands there are not the votes to convict him.”
Senator Lindsey Graham agreed and said he believes Trump will not be convicted for inciting violence on Jan. 6.
“I think his team will do better, can do better,” Graham told the Hill. “I reinforced to the president, the case is over. It’s just a matter of getting the final verdict now.”
