Republican Indiana Sen. Mike Braun told the Daily Caller in an exclusive interview Friday that he believes the Senate is ready to end the impeachment trial and acquit President Donald Trump.

Braun noted that enough Republicans will likely vote against calling additional witnesses, which will fast track the trial toward a final vote on whether or not to convict the president. The question and answer portion of the trial concluded on Thursday evening. The senator also predicted that several Democrats may side with Republicans on the vote.
