Zero Hedge: McConnell Lays Out How Second Impeachment Would Play Out In Senate 

With Democrats set to launch a second impeachment against President Trump if he doesn’t resign ‘immediately,’ Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has circulated a memo to GOP Senators outlining the mechanics of how a potential Senate trial would play out.
For starters, it would almost certainly occur after Trump leaves office on January 20, when Democrats take control of the Senate, according to the Washington Post. 
McConnell’s memo notes that the Senate will not reconvene until January 19 for any substantive business – leaving the day before Joe Biden’s inauguration as the earliest possible date for proceedings to begin. 
WNU Editor: US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is basically saying the Democrat’s will run the trial. And with Trump derangement syndrome on full display right now, I expect a Senate trial will start after Biden’s inauguration. 
The key question is …. are there 17 Republican senators who will vote for the impeachment of President Trump? 
Here is my list on who will definitely vote for impeachment: 
Senator Pat Toomey (R., PA) cites impeachable offenses. 
Senator Ben Sasse (R., NE.) said Trump violated his oath of office. 
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R., AK) became the first Republican senator to call for Mr. Trump to resign.
Senator Mitt Romney (R., UT) was the only Republican to vote for impeachment the last time 
Bottom line. Even if I add Republican Senators like Susan Collins from Maine. And one or two others. The 67 vote threshold will not be reached. 
But if there are 17 Republican senators who do show up and vote for impeachment. 
I do not live in the U.S..
I am just an outsider looking in. 
But this is a no brainer.
The Republican party will lose a significant part of its base and it will be finished electorally for a generation.
