Do the math.

It takes 67 votes in Senate to convict after impeachment. If the Democrats win every seat up for election this fall, they end up with 58 seats.

The (political) evidence we've seen so far suggests that any Republican who openly opposes Trump would be defeated in the next primary election. Unless you can show me 9 incumbent Senate Republicans who are ready to end their careers, discussion is pointless.
