5. They are in a dilemma.

Sort of like, "Pay me now or pay me later".

If they were to dispose of Trump in an impeachment trial, they would most likely lose the House, Senate, and White House in the next election. But they could begin to rebuild their Party.

If they wait until after the election, they could lose the House, Senate, and the White House and would be in much worse shape. They believe they can hold on but that may not be the case?

Logic would dictate that they cleanse themselves now, and rebuild their Party, just as they did after Goldwater, but the Trump base has a very strong hold on them.
