@PunchbowlNews  → Impeachment will likely result in Donald Trump being acquitted. Will they censure him to ensure some punishment? → The $1.9 trillion Covid relief package Biden wants faces a massively difficult slog to the finish line.

@PunchbowlNews  < @SenSchumer  stood his ground against @senatemajldr  in the early days of this new Democratic majority. Because in the end, they both declared victory, and they both got nothing but the status quo. Filibuster is staying. Schumer also didnt guarantee he wont kill it.

@PunchbowlNews  @Sen SchumerS @senatemajldrchumer  showed his colleagues toughness against McConnell. And if McConnell overplays his hand by abusing the filibuster to try to derail Biden’s agenda, Schumer may actually get the needed 50 votes required for a rule change sometime down the road.

McConnell says that @SenatorSinema  committed to him personally that she will not vote to get rid of the filibuster. cc @AJentleson  etc

So this appears to be the ceiling for gop conviction votes.
