Reports that McConnell is leaning toward conviction.
We're up to six House republicans coming out in favor of impeachment. There were zero last time (Amash dropped his party affiliation then voted for it). This was going to pass without them, so they've either had a spurt of conscience or they believe it's politically expedient to turn on Trump.
Either way, it feels like there's some momentum building here.
If McConnell says he will vote to convict, I feel at least somewhat confident it will happen
If that’s true, then ya it might work. Currently I’m guessing it looks something like:
McConnell, Sasse, Mitt, Grassley, Wicker, Burr, Thune, Collins, Toomey, Loffeler, Graham, Cotton, Tillis, Blunt, Crapo
Maybe Rubio as well?
That’s closing in on 17 right there and as we said, if Mitch wants it done then you might get a hell of a lot more than 17.
