Is Trump’s Second Impeachment “Dead on Arrival”?

 Biden and the Democrats have made it very clear that they will be unifying the country, their strategy includes a highly divisive act of trying to once again impeach former President Donald Trump. 

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., recently sat down with Newsmax and proclaimed that Trump’s impeachment will be “dead on arrival,” and that there was no way Democrats would get the two-thirds of the Senate necessary to convict.

Actually, Trump appears to be headed for acquittal in his second impeachment trial after just five Republicans voted with Democrats to block an effort to declare it unconstitutional. Rand Paul’s bid to question the constitutionality of trying a former president was blocked on a 55-45 vote. Only five Republicans supported going forward with the trial. That serves as a rough proxy for the eventual verdict and is well short of the two-thirds majority necessary for conviction.
