31. But that's the problem, what's the most that Democrats will get out of it, if you start it on Jan 21

or whatever ?

Let's say 67 Senators DO convict him, he doesn't go to jail and he will already have left office ! He will not be held accountable by this. Did you think he would be ? He's already stained by Impeachment, twice.

There is another motion they can then bring, and that is to bar him from ever running for office again. Who wins in that situation ? You may well argue that it's the American people, but for a large portion of that 74m it makes him a martyr. Worst of all, it will most certainly benefit the Republican Party because they won't have to stand up to Trump and stop him themselves, and don't forget that 197 of them voted to against Impeachment last night. Mitch McConnell would LOVE if the Democrats did his dirty work for him, so he could then create a new narrative, and the GOP would lie their way out of it.
