So what happens? He just gets named as impeached, but no removal/barring?

Probably. No President has ever been found guilty.

I live in hope, it is possible, the tide is still against Trump and building, but only 10 votes in the house doesnt make me think they can come up with enough, especially with McConell prevaricating.

It's hard to understand why the GOP lends its reputation to this anti-democratic imbecile. I can understand Cruz and a handful of other low moral politicians, but the majority of the party? Maybe I'm watching too much CNN.

I'll just repost my earlier thought in case it was missed.

Since the vote takes place after he's gone, I wonder if that might make some Republicans more likely to vote against him? After all, last time they all supported him, he was still in office. He won't be in office this time so it's not actually removing their man.

It might also improve their image and build a few bridges.

Lets hope so. Off the primary list for many of them in the future.

Nobody knows right now, possibly in three months time (after Bidens first 100 days)

Well that's a bit anti-climatic. No wonder Trump is walking around not looking too worried.

I suspect that at this point they are more interested in who gets to play with the 70+ million people who voted for him, and can vote again in the midterms.

And as time passes, the shock of the violent invasion of the Capitol will subside and make it easier for the Repubs to fail to find him guilty.

And he still did not refer to Biden or Biden's administration by name; only 'peaceful transition'. This is giving the qanon faithful gallons of 'hopium', as they are calling it.

It's going to come down, as always, to what they think the 'base' wants. Even with Trump out of office, he still has a strong influence over the party. Prior to Jan 6, that influence was potentially very big; now, less so. If they think the base wants to 'move on' to some new leader, they'll vote against him but if they think he's still got some hold over them, they'll toe the line.

Does the US really have intelligence on the Wuhan Lab that is accurate and correct or a bluff by Trump?
