Does impeachment include a conviction? Pelosi has ruled impeachment out without a realistic chance for a Senate conviction, similar to her position on impeaching Bush when she took the gavel in 2007. It's still a possibility since I expect Trump's position to continue to erode precipitously and today's Republicans have the loyalty of a weathervane.
I don't believe that any Senate Republican would vote to convict Trump -- no matter what the evidence. Susan Collins might hem and haw and hint that she would, but she wouldn't.
