Even though Democrats took great pains to make the impeachment articles as narrowly focused and provable as possible, Republicans in the Senate are broadly expected to still march as one to acquit President Donald Trump when it goes to trial.

At present, there does not appear to be any indication that McConnell is facing pressure from his own party to hold Trump accountable, as Senate Republicans fear a primary challenge from Trump supporters. But there are at least some senators fighting for re-election in blue states, like Sens. Cory Gardner (R-CO) and Susan Collins (R-ME), who could face pressure in the other direction, and those seats are integral to Republicans holding their Senate majority.

You reap what you sow."
