(CNN)The next few days are going to be long, but by the end of Wednesday, we expect that President Donald Trump will be impeached a second time.

Senate Democrats are working through how it might unfold and President Joe Biden is acknowledging that his opening days in office may be divided between his agenda to bring the country together and a Senate impeachment trial that will continue to keep the country divided.

Rules is expected to then return in the mid-afternoon to begin debating the impeachment article.

The House will pass the rule to govern the debate on the impeachment article Tuesday night at some point.

But, Wednesday at 9 a. m. ET, the House will meet to begin consideration of the article of impeachment on the House floor.

Democrats are confident there will be at least a handful of Republicans voting with them on impeachment Wednesday.

Cheney has not said what she would decided to do on the issue but she told colleagues on a conference call Monday evening that Wednesday's impeachment vote is a "vote of conscience," a source told CNN.

Look, don't expect dozens of Republicans to vote for impeachment, but these alternatives aren't coming to the floor in a Pelosi-controlled House of Representatives.

As the House charges ahead, there is a growing realization in the Senate, that an impeachment trial of Trump cannot be put off for 100 days.

But members and aides on the Senate Democratic side tell me that the reality of what this trial could mean for another stimulus bill, to Biden's nominees, to the country's morale is sinking in.
