If McConnell nukes the filibuster it could backfire...bigly

Democrats only would need to pick up three seats to conduct trials for Trump officials. I know McCain and Graham have been all talk, but I believe they'll come around once it becomes a sure thing. Then all we need is a third, and with the rate Trump is going, a senator in a hotly contested area up for reelection will certainly defect.
