As an another attorney pointed out to me, to be impeached is not to be forced from office. The Senate must convict, by vote of 2/3 of majority.
The Republicans do not have 2/3 majority in the Senate, so unless some Democrats break ranks (unlikely), Clinton will not be removed from office.
The Republicans have basically lost. They are like a basketball team that is playing out the final moments, trying to make the score as close as possible ,but doesn't have a chance.

... fills the air, and NOT because the holidays are approaching. For the first time, I'm seriously considering the possibility Clinton will be forced from office. Despite how much I detest the man and his policies, I'm infuriated by this prospect. The GOP is basically telling the American electorate to get stuffed. Surely this must bother others on this list.
