“I’d like to change my vote.” Sen. Lindsey Graham changed his vote to yes, in favor of calling witnesses in Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial.

The Senate approved 55-45 a request to consider calling witnesses, a move that may extend the trial that was expected to end within hours.

House managers said Republican Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler had important information about a phone call during the mob attack at the Capitol between House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and Trump. Trump’s attorney, Michael van der Veen, said he’d need to call hundreds of witnesses if any were to be allowed.
