Republican Sen. Susan Collins says she's getting death threats after her vote to acquit President Donald Trump at his impeachment trial, saying three of them were deemed "credible" and are being investigated.

Collins made the disclosure Friday while addressing the Maine Chiefs of Police Association winter conference. She said she's always appreciated law enforcement officers but that she now has a "personal appreciation" for what they do to keep people safe.
