Maybe those that do not will be committing suicide or at least limiting themselves from ever being considered for the highest office. The Supremes will sit this one out, except for presiding, pretty much like they blew off appeals based on how many votes donnie got, as you are still trying to uses.It won't go anywhere even if it does. First of all, if convicted, even the Democrat constitutional expert Alan Dershowitz said there is no way the Supreme Court will allow it to stand, and he'd be willing to represent Trump if that actually happened. Secondly, Trump got 74 million votes, which is 12 million more he got in his first election, and rumor is that Trump is considering the formation of his own party. The Republicans know if that happens, and they lose a good portion of those 74 million voters, it's over for the GOP.Guess we will find out, though I think the answer is yes as Presidents were not mean to be above review, condemnation and possibly punishment in reduction of benefits as anyone else. Looks like Mitch wants to start the trial in February.
The Republican Senators who vote for conviction will be committing political suicide, and even if they don't care, the GOP knows they may be committing suicide. So this will never happen.
