Ten senators to watch on Trump impeachment trial | TheHill
As the impeachment spotlight shifts to the Senate, several senators are emerging as early pivotal players as Washington gears up for President Trump’s trial.
The rules, where a simple majority can make or break decisions, could throw a curveball into the looming procedural fights that will determine what the trial looks like. Democrats will need four GOP senators to successfully call a witness or request documents, and only three GOP senators to block a Republican motion.
A handful of senators in both parties will be under the microscope during the proceeding as the press — and leadership — look for areas where members might break ranks.
