Which Republicans will hold the President’s feet to the fire?

These articles of impeachment will forever remain in history. President Trump will forever have on his track record these two monolithic articles. The Democrats in unity proved that The President’s actions are never to supersede the needs and the goals of America. Yet however historical this may be, for the President to be removed, 2/3 of the Senate would have to vote in Favor.

The Republicans have 53 seats in The Senate, while the Democrats have 45. There are 2 Independents. 100 seats in total.

For these articles to successfully move through the Senate, they would both need votes totaling 2/3 of this current Senate, meaning several Republicans would have to vote in favor. But will this happen? Will Republicans look onward without any disdain for the President, or might some look beyond political affiliation and hold the President accountable for abuse of his awesome power?

The fact that Speak of The House Nancy Pelosi is considering holding the two articles in The House, this may come down to the Democrats letting the impact of the articles directly affect Trump’s re-election odds as opposed to taking it any further. It may be in fact that they fear a lack of Republican support, and that they would rather let historians study the ramifications and the significance of these articles against President Trump.

Trump, despite his own superego has already been deeply affected. He knew this was coming, but until it happened he didn’t know how. He almost lacks the ability to significantly care, and it is certain that Democrats fear of the damage possible if Republicans follow Trump blindly.

Because where is Trump going? He knows he won’t be our last President, right?
