SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — 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.

“I just want you to know that I’ve always loved you and appreciated you. But now I have a real personal appreciation for all that you do to keep us safe,” Collins told the group in South Portland, Maine.

Collins also received threats before when she voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In October 2018, a threatening letter was sent to her Bangor home that claimed to contain deadly ricin. Her husband and the couple's Labrador retriever, Pepper, were both quarantined for a time.

Trump Reveals the ‘Lesson’ He Learned From Impeachment .
Last week, Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) was widely ridiculed for saying she believed President Donald Trump had learned a “lesson” from his impeachment saga. She later admitted that she may have been wrong, explaining that she should have used the word “hopes” instead of “believes.” Well, on Wednesday afternoon at the White House, a reporter finally asked the president if he learned anything from the ordeal. “Some Republicans have said they hoped you would learn a lesson from impeachment,” NBC News’ Peter Alexander said. “What lesson did you learn from impeachment?” The answer is unlikely to satisfy the Republican senator who will face Maine voters this fall.
