Impeachment merely requires a majority of the House of Representatives; it is the subsequent Senate trial that requires 2/3 of Senators.

True, but the house isn’t going to vote to impeach unless they have a reasonable expectation that the Senate will convict.

Because if they do, and the senate acquits it makes the house look like they were playing politics.
