After articles of impeachment are voted by the House, the Senate trial is entirely a political affair, not a criminal process. The Senate will pretend to honor rules for the trial but there will be no "standard of truth". The de facto standard will be: The prosecution presents enough nauseating evidence to give a senator cover for voting guilty. Expect each senator to vote for their own interests, which MIGHT intersect with some public or private interests.

This assumes no events occur that may preclude the Senate trial. But that's not the topic here. Nightmares are over yonder.
