42. Excellent points, IMO. You have summed up

the situatiion. They are anxious because the coup is incomplere snd they are facing a direct challenge to it.

"Are they counting on some show of force on their behalf to cow us into obedience? A show of militia?"

Yes, I believe they are riling up the base to an intimidating show of force. Remember the violence when the Affordable Care Act was passed? The members of Congress who received death threats because of their votes for the Act? The bricks thrown through their windows? It looks like it could happen again quite soon, after or during the House vote on the impeachment articles.

It will be intended as intimidation to any Senators entertaining the idea of voting to convict.

Yes the window is narrowing for a coup which increases the likelihood of them turning to physical intimidation. I think the hope is that people who are not so extreme but who feel compelled to choose one side or the other will be supportive.
