HI

I read below sentences in The Economist,
Trump, impeachment and American democracy
and it gives me confusion.

Mr Trump will now almost certainly be indicted by the House and cleared in a trial by the Senate. If a single legislator crosses party lines, it will be news. That enough to convict him will do so is inconceivable.

Especially, the third sentence, including "That", "enough to" and "will do so" does not make sense to me although I can vaguely grasp the meaning.

Could somebody help me understand the third sentence " That enough to convict him will do so is inconceivable. " ??
What does "That" suggests ?
And I don't understand the subject for "will".

Hope somebody will teach me the sentence structure for "That enough to convict him will do so is inconceivable."

    That enough to convict him will do so is inconceivable.
    It is inconceivable that a sufficient number of legislators will cross party lines to ensure a conviction.
