    The Washington Post reported Wednesday that U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., who proposed a witness swap earlier this week, is “very skeptical” that such witnesses would change his mind.

    “ā€œIā€™m very very skeptical that there are any witnesses who can shed any light that could cause me to change my view of what the final outcome of this trial ought to be,ā€ Toomey told reporters, according to the Post.

    Toomey’s comments, the Post reported, came as some Republicans senators pushed for a swift end to the trial after two days of questions and answers.
