    I think that's how they work:
    once it's clear that the 1/3rd is reached, meaning less than 2/3 for it, then they don't bother to continue voting. Academic exercise, they'd say.

    Senate Republicans can easily say the House didn't follow the Constitutional process, and vote against impeachment. It's an easy out.

    I am not convinced the strategy is to actually remove him...I think they realize that is a bridge too far...I think the whole point is to slow him down and impede his every step...obfuscate/hinder/obstruct in the hopes he will give in or at least render his administration as ineffective as possible...if I am correct, this is simply reprehensible and should result in every one of them being defeated next year.

    Turn about is fair play. The next time a Dem gets elected president, calls for his/her/its impeachment should start the day after Election Day. Just like they did with Trump.
