The nation's dreams of bringing President Donald Trump to justice seem even less likely to come to fruition yet another member of the GOP vowed revealed that they will be voting to acquit, despite his many wrongdoings.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski said on Monday that she would vote to acquit President Trump on the two House-passed articles of impeachment.

"I cannot vote to convict. The Constitution provides for impeachment but does not demand it in all instances," Murkowski said from the Senate floor, adding that removing Trump from office would be "the political death penalty."

"The voters will pronounce a verdict in nine months, and we must trust their judgement," she said, agreeing that "The president's behavior was shameful and wrong. His personal interests do not take precedence over those of this great nation."

Trump is currently on trial over allegations that he withheld aid from Ukraine until they announced that they would be launching an investigation into political opponent and former Vice President, Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter Biden.

"Well, it's been very unfair. From the day I won ... from the day I came down from the escalator ... it probably started from there," Trump said in an eight-minute sit-down with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Sunday.

"It's been a very, very unfair process," he continued. "The Mueller Report, Russia, Russia, Russia, as you say, which was total nonsense — it was all nonsense, the whole thing. It was very unfair, and mostly it was unfair to my family. I mean, my family suffered because of all this. And many other families suffered, also."
