Only five Republican senators opposed a motion by colleague Rand Paul to declare Donald Trump's impeachment trial unconstitutional, signaling that Democrats won't have enough votes to convict the former president.
The Senate voted 55-45 on Tuesday to set aside Paul's motion to short-circuit the trial before it even starts on the basis that the Constitution doesn't provide jurisdiction for impeaching a president who's no longer in office. It would take a two-thirds Senate majority, or as many as 67 votes, to convict Trump.
"Forty-five Senators agreed that this sham of a trial is...

Multiple Republican lawmakers have pushed the theory in recent days that impeaching...
