So, unless they can convince 17 Republicans to turn their backs on their voter base, & commit political suicide, convince those 17 Republican ghosts to join up with their hated, despised, arch-enemies, the demon-RATS............unless you can convince those 17 Republican ghosts.If Mr T**** is convicted, there's then an option to hold a separate vote on whether he should be allowed to have another crack at the presidency.
Again, unlike his actual conviction, the Senate vote on whether he could run again would not need two-thirds of the Senate vote to go through — it would only need a simple majority.
With the Democrats recently taking back control over the Senate, it's fairly likely they'd vote to block him from going for a second term.
ALL points thereafter would be moot if they fail to convict.
Without a conviction, there is no subsequent vote for punishment, or anything else on this matter....for that matter.......none.......period.
Without a 67 Senatorial vote to convict, the former President, President Trump, will be completely exonerated, as he was the last time, exonerated of all the House's charges of Impeachment (which are only as powerful as Grand Jury Indictments - - nothing more than purported allegations against a person unless convicted at trial ............. Held innocent of those allegations, innocent as the white driven snow until then).
Also, may I remind you, even though you don't want it to happen......don't even want to believe that there is a scintilla of possibility/probability that the United States Supreme Court would find that a trial of a Non-Incumbent/former President, or any former government official who has completed their term in office -- irregardless of any purported past precedence, is unconstitutional, & that their decision would not be subject to appeal.
If that comes to pass, then any & all issues brought to bear, in & during such an invalid trial, will be struck from the records, as if they never existed.
Also, JFYI, whether President Trump himself ever decides to run again or not means nothing, being the Republican Nominee has never been up to him at all, it's totally up to the Republican Party, & solely after a successful run through the Republican Primaries.......all out of government control, & completely within Party control....even if he should win the primaries, the Party still holds veto power over any nomination.
