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...

The point of order ultimately failed, with 55 senators voting to kill it and 45 voting against.
Multiple Republican lawmakers have pushed the theory in recent days that impeaching...
