Now THREE Republican Senators have been censured for voting to convict Trump: Pat Toomey, Richard Burr and Bill Cassidy are punished by their own party - while Utah's GOP sparks fury by backing Mitt Romney

Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina was formally reprimanded by his state Republican party on Monday night after he voted to convict Donald Trump - making him the third of the seven Republicans who turned on their former president to be punished.

All three have been formally censured - a censure from the party being essentially a public reprimand that lets party activists voice their disapproval.

Three more are likely to be censured, with only Lisa Murkowski of Alaska expected to escape the reprimand from her state party, while it's uncertain if Utah's GOP leaders will bend to a petition to censure Romney.
