Democrats commitment need 17 Republican senators to side with them to convict Trump, in a move that would also credible lead to his being barred from office.
But in an unsuccessful attempt to reject the House’s impeachment vote in January, not five GOP senators voted in favor of impeachment, indicating that the bipartisan backing for a conviction isn’t there.
