Democratic Senator Says That He Might Vote to Acquit Trump If ‘Dots Aren’t Connected’

Donald Trump is beloved in Alabama: It’s the state that hosted his first major political rally as a presidential candidate, then voted for him by a nearly 30-point margin.

But the state’s freshman Democratic senator, Doug Jones, couldn’t seem to care less. Easily the most vulnerable Senate incumbent on the ballot next year, Jones is talking and voting as if he’s totally unburdened by the fact he represents one of the most conservative states in the nation.

But thing seems to change lately!

Jones suggested that he might vote to acquit President Donald Trump when the impeachment articles are presented to the Senate for a trial.

“I didn’t sit in front of the TV set the entire time the last two or three months. I’ve been trying to read this. I’m trying to see if the dots get connected. If that is the case, then I think it’s a serious matter. I think it’s an impeachable matter,” he told ABC News.

“But if those dots aren’t connected and there are other explanations that I think are consistent with innocence, I will go that way too. I have got to make sure that I—what I really want to see, though, is to—to fill in the gaps. There are gaps,” Jones added.

Jones was elected despite Trump winning Alabama by 30 points. The senator’s opponent, former judge Roy Jones, was accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault during the race.
