If Mitch gets assurances that the big money donors will come back if they vote to impeach Donnie, then he will vote for it. And if Mitch controls the coffers, enough Rs will back to impeach. Holdouts will be morons that actually think Trump will use some of his donations to help in their reelection bids, which to anyone with a brain should be clear he won’t.It does seem like the only hope for conviction is if Mitch decides to vote that way AND makes it widely known prior to the vote. With Trump done, Rs are going to grovel at the feet of the next most powerful party member. I do wonder if it's any more likely that there are more R votes after the Biden admin is already underway though. If there is truth to the reports of them fearing for safety and/or political backlash based on votes to impeach, I wonder if more time might a) calm those fears b) somehow create more safeguards for Rs similar to the $50MM pledged by anti-Trump republican group.
