They might crow but everybody knows that it will be a totally partisan vote that "exonerates" him

Everybody will also get to hear Republicans twist themselves into all kinds of shapes and sizes on the public record to defend Trump in the House and Senate- and we might manage to at least get a couple to vote with us, bolstering the credibility of the charges.

I'd like to see their medical licenses

I feel like people legislating these restrictions/bans are essentially trying to practice medicine and few, if any of them, have absolutely no idea about how female reproductive systems work (most have likely been poorly educated about sexuality and reproduction in general) because if they did, what they're doing wouldn't make any sense.

Nobody knows for sure how it would play out

The counter example I keep hearing is that Republicans stuck by Nixon until impeachment hearings were underway in the House and those eventually encouraged most Republicans to abandon him and press for his resignation. Of course, this was back in the 1970's when Republicans weren't quite so ideological and monolithic as they are today but it's possible that enough Republicans might abandon ship as hearings go on. But I don't think we should launch impeachment proceedings based on what we *think* might happen with the Senate. If the House conducts Impeachment Hearings and votes to impeach Trump, they've done their job and then the Senate will have to do it's job and the chips will just fall where they may.
