ㅤ"Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) said there’s no way the Republican-controlled Senate would impeach President Trump even if House Democrats started an inquiry.
ㅤ’The issue for Democrats is, are we going to spend all our time talking about impeachment, which we know they can’t get him in the Senate?’ McAuliffe said Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’
ㅤ’I mean, he could rob a bank and the Senate would not convict him. It doesn’t matter,’ he added.’"
ㅤô¿ô …I would have agreed with McAuliffe six months ago. But Trump’s popularity hasn’t significantly improved and time is running out. I think it’s possible that the Senate will leverage the threat of conviction to force Trump to drop out of the 2020 race. If Trump doesn’t back down, he’s gone.
