Because Senate conviction requires a two-thirds majority, it is highly unlikely that 67 senators will line up against the former president, according to Professor Emeritus William C. Banks. "The main explanation for Republican senators' support is their belief or fear that Trump continues to control the national party and that many Republican voters do (believe that), too," says Banks. He was quoted in the China Daily article, "Opening arguments to start in trial of Trump."
