So basically, if Democrats can hold their caucus and Republicans want to wait until Trump's out of office, we can get this done without a single one of them.
The ban vote would only take place if the impeachment resulted in conviction. They need 17 (i think) republicans to get to there.
So they'd have to vote to convict first with a 2/3 vote. Then, only if they do convict, they'd take another vote on disqualification but that only takes a 50% majority to do?
That seems odd that they could vote to convict and remove from office but then turn around and vote to allow said person to run again.
I'm not saying you're wrong, because I certainly don't know the rules. Just saying if true, the logic is strange.
