He says: 47 Democrats and 19 Republicans.

 

It should be noted that 47 Democrats might prefer Trump on the ticket in 2020, and might prefer Pence out of the West Wing in 2019.

It should furthermore be noted that Manchin may not want to risk alienating his GOP-light base.

And it says in the article that Reich’s GOP friend could name almost 19 senators ready to pull the trigger. Almost 19 is not enough for impeachment.

And last time impeachment was on the table, it was traded away for policy (NAFTA).

So I don’t see any certainty. I see a whole lot of almost, but not quite.
