Why Trump’s 2nd impeachment could be different

Donald Trump has made history. He is the first president to be impeached twice. Of course, the second impeachment wouldn’t have become necessary if the first one had succeeded — but conviction and removal from office takes a two-thirds vote of the Senate, and Republicans didn’t go along with the initial effort. America was deprived of the privilege of a one-year presidential term for Mike Pence.

Democrats are about to take control of the upper chamber, but not by a wide enough margin to convict Trump on the charge of inciting last week’s insurrection in the Capitol. They will need Republican votes, and there are a few reasons to believe the outcome could be different this time around.
