The Senate tabled (killed) an amendment to S Res 483 that sought to increase from two hours to about 24 hours the time allotted both sides for filing responses to initial motions in the impeachment trial of President Trump. Of the 12 roll calls conducted during the trial's opening sessions, this was the only one not decided by a 53-47 party-line vote. The tally on this roll call as 52-48, with Susan Collins, R-Maine, voting with the Democratic caucus.
Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said a two-hour window "really doesn't give anybody enough time to respond to a written motion."
Trump attorney Jay Sekulow said "we are ready to proceed...We would ask the chamber to reject this amendment."
A yes vote was to kill the amendment.
