Also, for the record, Sen. Sinema's announcement on Twitter came 6 minutes before Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) made a similar announcement. But, more than four hours after Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL). Those three were the Democratic Senators most-watched as to their intentions.
Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema will NOT break her silence on the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump by speaking on the Senate floor before the ultimate votes. Sinema's Communications Director Hannah Hurley confirmed the information moments ago.
Sinema is one of the final three Senators to let it be known how she will vote and she has been the subject of much speculation.
Even after fellow moderate Doug Jones (D-AL) explained this morning why he will vote to remove the President for both abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, Fox News hosts continued to express hope that either Sinema or Joe Manchin (D-WV) will vote with Republicans to make the vote "bi-partisan".
The votes on the two Articles of Impeachment are expected to take place at approximately 2pm, Arizona Time.
Sinema attracted even more attention and speculation after conspiculously applauding at last night's State of the Union address for things that her fellow Democrats stayed in their seats. After the speech/rally, she posted this tweet.
