After 45 Republicans supported a motion declaring a Senate trial for Donald Trump is unconstitutional because the objective of impeachment is to remove a president, Democrats realized they don’t have the 67 votes needed to convict.

Axios reported Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Republican Susan Collins of Maine are discussing a censure resolution along with other colleagues.

Collins was one of five Republicans senators who voted Tuesday against the resolution of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., to declare the trial unconstitutional.
