With the House of Representatives voting to impeach President Trump yesterday, the Senate will now hold a trial and vote on whether to remove Trump from office. However, unless it goes back in session with unanimous consent, which seems unlikely, the Senate remains in recess until January 19. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would not call an emergency session until then.
Ten Republicans in the House of Representatives, including Liz Cheney of Wyoming, supported impeachment. At least two Republicans in the Senate, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, have called on the President to resign. Assuming that all 50 Senate Democrats vote for removal and that all 100 Senators vote, at least 17 Republicans must vote for removal in order for it to be successful. Let’s take a look at where all 50 current Republican Senators stand.
