A second track to conviction in the Senate

Maybe there are a few Republicans that would vote for removal. Maybe.

Perhaps some could be convinced to come down with the flu on voting day.

The constitution says removal requires 2/3 of those Senators present.

Combining the two approaches could make conviction possible where one or theother would not.

1. Not being present for the vote would be viewed the same as voting for removal.

Aka, not happening.

2. Presumably, McConnell would just reschedule the vote.

McConnell isn't going to hold a vote unless he knows acquittal is a guarantee.
