I think McConnell is sick of Trump's tantrums, incompetence and the damage he's done to the GOP. Politically speaking Trump has been a disaster for Republicans. In 4 short years he lost them the house, the senate and the presidency. With the GOP having wiped its ass with its entire brand.As much as McConnell hate Trump I do not see him convicting Trump and just instead telling Trump to watch his back because the State of New York will get him instead...Romney
Those are the likely votes for conviction. Rubio will seek the GOP establishment embrace rather than the "revolutionary" Trumpy one, especially with noise about Vanky challenging him in 2022. But only if Mitch leads the way.
McConnell is obviously the key. If he votes to convict it allows Grassley, Wicker, and some of the other old guard, near-retirement Republicans who know that Trump is a dangerous fraud.
Though I suspect your right on him convicting Trump: its not going to happen. Trump will be tried in the Senate and not found guilty.
