The official line from the White House is that, despite all of his documented wrongdoings and ethical violations, it’s one big conspiracy from the so-called “deep state” that is leading toward the impeachment of Donald Trump in the United States House of Representatives.
The issue, for those of us who know that Trump is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors, is that in order to obtain a conviction, thus leading to his removal from office, it would take a two-thirds supermajority vote (67 senators) in the United States Senate. As it stands now, the Senate has 53 Republicans and 47 Democrats (including two independents). And that means that 20 of the 53 Republicans, plus every Democrat and the two independents, would have to vote to convict.
Despite all of the irrefutable evidence of abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and extortion of a foreign government for political purposes, against Donald Trump, it’s unlikely that the Republican senators, who worship Donald Trump as if he were a god, would see the light and vote to convict him.
Thus, the odds of ridding our country of the scourge of Donald Trump through impeachment and conviction are slim to none. So voting him and his Republican sycophants out of office next November will be our best and last chance to end this insanity and to save our democratic republic.
