Reporting on the final day of the trial from CNN:
Sen. Doug Jones, an Alabama Democrat facing an uphill reelection battle in 2020, said Wednesday morning he will vote to convict President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment.
Jones was one of a handful of senators whose vote was still in question on the verdict of Trump’s impeachment trial, which will come to an end with a vote Wednesday that’s all but guaranteed to end in an acquittal.
The Senate will vote at 4 p.m. ET for each of the two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The outcome is a forgone conclusion: Senate Republicans have a 53-47 majority in the chamber, and so far no Republicans have said they will vote to remove the President from office. A two-thirds majority is required for conviction.
The final vote tally is still an open question, with a handful of senators who have not said how they are voting.
“After many sleepless nights, I have reluctantly concluded that the evidence is sufficient to convict the President for both abuse of power and obstruction of Congress,” Jones said in a statement explaining how he will vote.
