Well, now, will Pelosi sit on it until Trump has been replaced by what’s his face?

My understanding is that the earliest the senate can take it up is 20Jan2021 at 1300 hrs. I don’t think civilians can be removed or barred.

I've heard that it's not specifically mentioned in The Constitution.

Pelosi probably already has the pens, shirts, hats, and jackets already printed up.

That's why it is all grandstanding.

All about the 2024 election...

”The Constitution allows for two types of punishments for a president found guilty of an impeachable offense: “Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States.”

“The first punishment, removal from office, is automatically enforced following a two-thirds guilty vote. But the second punishment, disqualification from holding any future government position, requires a separate Senate vote. In this case, only a simple majority is required to ban the impeached president from any future government office for life. That second vote has never been held since no president has been found guilty in the Senate trial.”

And getting to that second vote will be easy if the impeachment is upheld.

Very much, so.   It should not stand in the senate (as a case)  but more importantly the senate is not going to return until after Biden has been in office for about an hour.

This was a waste of time.

So now it is official. The Dumbassocrats have wasted the entire 4 years of the Trump administration trying to get rid of him instead of doing their ****ING JOBS!

Pelosi and Schumer are the ones that should be impeached!

That is correct.  But, I don't expect facts to stand in the way of this mob.

Democrats Cannot Impeach Trump, and You Can’t Impeach Him After Leaving Office: Dershowitz

Quote

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Democrats have virtually no chance of successfully impeaching and removing President Donald Trump before Inauguration Day on Jan. 20.

Quote

“The case cannot come to trial in the Senate. Because the Senate has rules, and the rules would not allow the case to come to trial until, according to the majority leader, until 1 p.m. on January 20th, an hour after President Trump leaves office,” Dershowitz said in a Fox Business interview on Sunday.

Quote

Dershowitz, who defended Trump during the Senate impeachment trial about a year ago, suggested that the Constitution does not allow for impeaching a former president.

Quote

“And the Constitution specifically says, ‘The President shall be removed from office upon impeachment.’ It doesn’t say the former president. Congress has no power to impeach or try a private citizen, whether it be a private citizen named Donald Trump or named Barack Obama or anyone else,” he said.

They fear that we will elect him again in 2024.

Since the Senate isn't going to find him guilty by a 2/3 majority, this is all just a hoax; full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

This trial is a travesty. It's a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.

There is hope.  Perhaps Trump will drop the documents on his way out the door.

They are terrified out of their mother-lovin' gourds that he even suggests that he'll run again.

She is so full of hate for Trump she will push the impeachment with all of her power.  She is still full of hate and a need for revenge for Clinton being impeached. 

She is trying to teach the lesson that her power exceeds that of the President and she wants everyone to know it.  She's a Megalomaniac.

They are scared, folks.  They don't want him to do anything but defend himself.

Wonder if any of those Republicans honestly believe Trump committed an impeachable offense. Or are they Rinos. Or are they frightened afraid of losing their cushy jobs or worse... maybe not even getting high paid directors and/or lobbyists gigs later. 

The two from Michigan are utter RINOs.  Especially Frank Upton, whose initials are FU for a reason.  Meijer hasn't been there as long and I hope the voters of this state, which my youngest daughter refers to as the lowest circle of Dante's Inferno, have sense enough to vote their asses out of office... but I don't have much hope.  I'd hate to see them replaced by democretins, but it wouldn't be that noticeable if they were.

Liz Cheney is a spoiled brat who inherited her political position thanks to her daddy being Rino Dubya's VP just before Biden.

What pisses me off is they had a chance to do something good for America today...but chose to do something that was a total waste of time.

Except possibly for control of Majority Leader positions in House and Senate the nation would probably be better served if Rinos actually declared as Democrats. Certainly the voters in their states would see more clearly.

The democrats won't stop with Trump.  The purge has begin.

Sadly, this is the case. It's a 1 party government with the backing of the media, big tech, hollywood, the alphabet agencies, and much of the military. The America many of us grew up in, is sadly gone.
