Michigan Sen. Gary Peters shares what he thinks is next after House votes to impeach President Trump

Senators return home for holidays

DETROIT – Senators from Michigan returned home for the holidays Friday, and Local 4 caught up with Sen. Gary Peters to see what he thinks is coming next year.

Peters said he came home expecting to return to an impeachment trial. The U.S. House of Representatives voted Wednesday to impeach President Donald Trump.

Peters said he also expects to take the separate oath that senators take in an impeachment.

“I would hope we’d have a fuller review of the facts, and have an opportunity to hear from some witnesses, just like the prior two impeachments had witnesses," Peters said "Folks should not be unwilling to have witnesses come forward to talk about issues related to the facts of the case specifically.” *

*Editor’s note: A previous version of this story inaccurately misquoted Sen. Peters as saying people should not be looking to have witnesses come forward.
