Where senators stood on removing Trump

After the House of Representatives voted in December to impeach President Trump on two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — the Senate took up both articles in January.

[Full results: How the Senate voted on Trump impeachment charges]

On Feb. 5, the Senate voted 52-48 to acquit Trump on the abuse of power impeachment article and voted 53-47 to acquit Trump on the obstruction of Congress impeachment article. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) was the only senator who broke with his party, voting to convict Trump on abuse of power.

Some GOP senators disapproved of Trump’s Ukraine actions but ultimately did not support removing Trump from office. You can read each senator’s explanation for how they voted on Trump’s removal below.

"After information from more than a dozen witnesses, over a hundred questions and days of oral arguments, I believe the House failed to prove its case for the two articles of impeachment. The House’s story relies on too much speculation, guessing games and repetition. It fails to hold up under scrutiny. The House claims to have proven its case, but insists on more evidence. It was the House’s responsibility to ensure it had developed a complete record of the evidence it needed to make its case and it is not up to the Senate to start the process over again. I did not vote for more witnesses or more evidence and voted to acquit the president on both counts," Enzi said in a statement on Feb. 5.

Tom Udall D-NMRetiring2020

"The House had no choice but to act to hold the president accountable. Donald Trump’s alleged actions violate the fundamental principles of our republic: abusing the powers of his office to pressure a foreign government to interfere in our electoral process, for his own political benefit. Now, it is absolutely essential that Senate Republican leadership allow the Senate to hold a full and fair trial, so that we can hear from relevant witnesses and decide the case with impartiality. Nothing less than the integrity of our democratic system and the rule of law are at stake," Udall said in a statement on Dec. 18. Read more »

These lawmakers oppose both articles of impeachment.

Lamar Alexander R-TNRetiring

"You don't apply capital punishment to every offense. There's a reason why in 230 years we've never removed a president through the impeachment clause, because the founders envisioned that the people would make the decision about who the president is and, in this case, the election to determine the president begins on Monday in Iowa," Alexander told NPR on Jan. 31.

John Barrasso R-WY

"Democrats have been working to undermine President Donald Trump since day one," Barrasso said in a statement on Sept. 24. Read more »

Roy Blunt R-MO

John Boozman R-AR

"Democrats have long sought to weaken the president, appease their base and further divide the country through impeachment," Boozman said in a statement on Sept. 24. Read more »

Shelley Moore Capito R-WV2020

"President Trump has had this thrown at him since the day he was elected—verbally and with things introduced on the House floor. That just shows you the willingness of people to subvert our strong Constitutional values to get a political gain and to bruise him up before the November election," Capito said on Dec. 5. Read more »

Bill Cassidy R-LA2020

"House Democratic leadership turned impeachment into a series of partisan hearings searching for a crime that changed by the day. The Senate will offer President Trump a fair process, and I look forward to fairly judging the facts,” Cassidy said in a statement on Dec. 10. Read more »

Susan Collins R-ME2020

Collins announced she would vote to acquit on both articles of impeachment during a Senate floor speech on Feb. 4. Read more »

Tom Cotton R-AR2020

"If they send articles of impeachment over here, I think we’ll take a careful look at them. From what I’ve read in the news, some of them might be deserved, might deserve immediate dismissal, you know, if for instance they say that the President or his aides litigating their Constitutional prerogatives in court is de facto evidence of obstruction of justice," Cotton said on Dec. 3. Read more »

Kevin Cramer R-ND

“The House should not present articles of impeachment without evidence to support such an awesome responsibility. So far they appear on a three-year fishing expedition,” Cramer told the Daily Caller on Oct. 22. Read more »

Mike Crapo R-ID

"The Senate has allowed the House managers to put their full record and extensive supplementary evidence before it. The case of the House managers still falls short of justifying the removal of a U.S. President from office and from the ballot in the upcoming election," Crapo said on Jan. 31. Read more »

Ted Cruz R-TX

"It's time for the Democrats to move on; 2016 is over. Hillary Clinton lost. Get over it," Cruz said on Oct. 1. Read more »

Steve Daines R-MT2020

This has been a sham from the very beginning and we need to finally put an end to this hoax and get back to working on behalf of the American people," Daines said on Dec. 17. Read more »

Mike Enzi R-WYRetiring

"After information from more than a dozen witnesses, over a hundred questions and days of oral arguments, I believe the House failed to prove its case for the two articles of impeachment. The House’s story relies on too much speculation, guessing games and repetition. It fails to hold up under scrutiny. The House claims to have proven its case, but insists on more evidence. It was the House’s responsibility to ensure it had developed a complete record of the evidence it needed to make its case and it is not up to the Senate to start the process over again. I did not vote for more witnesses or more evidence and voted to acquit the president on both counts," Enzi said in a statement on Feb. 5.

Gardner said he would vote against both articles of impeachment on Feb. 5.

Lindsey O. Graham R-SC2020

Charles E. Grassley R-IA

"The House may cower at defending its own authority, but the Senate shouldn’t have to clean up a mess of the House’s own making. For the many ways in which the House failed in the fundamentals of oversight, and for the terrible new precedent this “obstruction” article would set, I’ll vote ‘not guilty,'" Grassley said on Feb. 3. Read more »

Josh Hawley R-MO

"With last night’s vote, House Democrats have earned a place in history for the worst abuse of the impeachment process ever perpetrated. They have ignored due process, ignored House procedures, and ignored the evidence on their way to adopting the first impeachment articles against a president in history that do not even bother to allege a crime. With a bipartisan coalition voting against impeachment, now they are threatening not to hold a trial. They have harmed the country and disgraced both themselves and the House with their rabidly partisan crusade, and the voters should reward them accordingly in November," Hawley said in a statement on Dec. 19. Read more »

John Hoeven R-ND

Read more »

James M. Inhofe R-OK2020

Kelly Loeffler R-GA2020

"What I do know is that my first consequential vote in the United States Senate is an easy one. This partisan offensive began the moment President Trump won in 2016 and is an attack on our fair and free elections and the U.S. Constitution. Enough of the taxpayer-funded political campaign against the president. It’s time for Congress to get back to work," Loeffler wrote in an op-ed on Jan. 4. Read more »

Mitch McConnell R-KY2020

David Perdue R-GA2020

Rob Portman R-OH

"From what I’ve seen so far, I don’t see the evidence that leads to an impeachable offense," Portman said on Dec. 6. Read more »

James E. Risch R-ID2020

"The House is free to conduct their inquiry, and when they are done, the Senate will take up their Constitutional duty to do the same. From what I know to this point, the Democratic members in the House haven’t shown us anything that meets the standard and are prioritizing politics over facts," Risch said on Sept. 24. Read more »

Roberts called the impeachment inquiry "political theater" on Oct. 2. Read more »

Mike Rounds R-SD2020

Marco Rubio R-FL

"Voting to find the President guilty would not just be a condemnation of his action. If I vote guilty, I will be voting to remove a President from office for the first time in the 243-year history of our Republic," Rubio said in a statement on Jan. 31. Read more »

Richard C. Shelby R-AL

"It is evident to me that his actions are not worthy of removal from office, and I do not believe additional evidence would prove otherwise. The President’s actions, as presented by the House in the two articles, do not constitute an impeachable offense," Shelby said in a statement on Jan. 31. Read more »

Dan Sullivan R-AK2020

“To be honest, I don’t follow any of it because that’s not due process. Secret hearings, selective leaks. And that’s due process? In my America, that’s not due process,” he told The Washington Post on Oct. 28. Read more »

Todd C. Young R-IN

"One thing is clear, the far-left has been desperate to get rid of President Trump since day one. That much has not changed. I take all of my responsibilities very seriously and will continue to evaluate the facts as we get them, but my primary focus will remain on the work Hoosiers elected me to do, including passing USMCA, reining in health care costs, taking care of veterans, keeping Americans safe and secure, and continuing to grow our economy," Young said in a statement to The Washington Post on Oct. 7.
