Senate impeachment question on Roberts

Wonder if Mcturtle has contacted Roberts about if he would vote or not to break the tie if that happens?

1. There won't be a tie

not a single Republican will vote to convict.

Oh, and three Democrats are likely to vote in his favor as well, so they can claim it is "bipartisan".

2. I believe bluestarone is referring to witnesses being called. That vote only requires 51 votes.

3. There won't be a tie on that either

and those three Democrats will still likely vote with every single Republican.

5. What if lamar were to not vote? Call in sick? Straw in the wind.

[Sorry, Can't help it. I regress to the McCain vote on healthcare - the 'leader's face turned to shit. That was so great].
