Presently, the majority of republicans rule the senate, and we can't expect a majority of those GOP members to convict in the impeachment process. We also have a hand picked DOJ official too. On the SCOTUS bench, we have a conservative majority too, and with RBG in and out of hospitals as of late, I hope nothing bad happens to her, that would give Trump and the GOP a super majority on the bench.
The deck is stacked against us in returning to what is right, just and lawful. The "real" rule of law.
Earlier today, I tried finding out more about Nixon's impeachment, using a bing search engine, and didn't find what I was looking for, which was how many witnesses refused to comply with congressional subpoenas. Right now, Trump seems to be operating his own little dictatorship by telling white house staffers and appointees who should not testify or respond to congressional subpoenas.
In my search readings, I did discover that because the media (press) reported so much bad stuff about Nixon, it helped sway public opinion about him, this hasn't worked with Trump.
In the last day or so, Trump has distanced himself from his personal attorney (Rudy), Trump has just about thrown him under the bus. In other words Trump didn't do anything wrong, his attorney went rogue on him, in so many words. I didn't buy it.
