You see there's that 1 little clause that makes this moot:

"shall be removed from office"

He's not in office.

Suck it Nancy.

Article II, Section 4:

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Trump out of the picture. Dozens of Republican House and Senate members want him gone as well. Conviction which would prevent him from ever running again for President, or any other federal position.

It will be interesting to see since he presides if that objection is raised immediately. I’m not sure Neal isn’t right though. It’s a political process. If Trump was convicted and decided to later run for office again, he might be able to then take it to federal courts.

That might be risky though to pose a question like that and lose. To me in regular courts, when people motion for dismissals and summary judgments and lose, it’s like getting a black eye from the judge and somewhat validates the case. I realize this is different, but Bowers may want to just let that be part of his total argument with the Republican votes he needs to keep in his corner. Not to mention...any Trump attorney would be foolish to put their fate in John Roberts’ hands.

but if Cruz and Hawley and some others get to grandstand about it and vote no, but it still happens, then maybe they succeed in getting his base back to one of them.

Highly unlikely unless new evidence comes out. I think there might have been right after it happened and emotions were high. However, since then it’s been reported that the FBI knew this might happen and there’s video showing people starting the incursion at least 20 mins before Trump even finished his speech. It’s a pretty high bar to actually pin the criminal activity itself on Trump.

Those things combined with the doubts about the constitutionality of it and the fact that some Dem leaders have done the same or worse makes me think no chance.

You may get Murkowski, Collins, and Mittens. People like Lindsey Graham who was initially pretty mad about it has since spoken out strongly against impeachment. I think most will be like him.

there are rumblings in stories about groups of R's quietly trying to figure out who would be safe to vote for it. Some who won't vote for it will actually gain the most from it if it happens, like Cruz and Hawley. If they can grandstand against it and make a show of it, but still have it happen, then they both look like potential 2024 candidates.

day that only reinforces the fact that the president was the instigator. All of the terrorists' lawyers are spelling it out in no uncertain terms that their clients were acting at the behest of the president.

as well. It's all on video and twitter.

Then you have the intelligence briefings the White House received leading up to January 6th that informed the president, in no uncertain terms, of the effects his words were having on the people planning to attend and terrorize the Capitol. He was getting daily, and even hourly feedback on social media, of how his words were being perceived.

They're also following the money.

The evidence will only get worse for Trump.

He'll make a calculated decision on it based on future elections. Whichever direction he goes, that's the way he thinks will be the smart move to get GOP control back to the Senate.

I think the smartest play would be to loudly condemn Trump's actions, but for GOP Senators to vote Not Guilty or abstain.Impeachment is a political process for removal of an individual. The voters have already performed this task. Trump will not be elected again. Of the 34 Senators up for reelection in 2022, 20 are GOP and only 14 Dems.

Each GOP Senator has to assess what a guilty vote would mean. For many if not all, it would mean facing a primary challenger and even if the Senator were to prevail in the primary, the Senator would be weakened and many GOP Trump backers would stay home in the general election.

It's easy for McConnell to suddenly grow a set since he won't have to face the voters for 6 more years when he will be 84 yrs old. Other Senators are not in his position.

If Trump were still in the situation of holding office for a month or more, then impeachment and removal would make more sense for the good of the country in my opinion as one who voted for him. However, since he is out of office, I don't see the upside for the GOP playing along with this.

From being able to hold the office again, he won’t even sniff it

Remember the Tea Party?

I would hope that in 4 years his supporters will have chilled out and won’t be his “supporters” anymore

Assuming Biden and Co don’t take their guns and money, they will be back to normal

The GOP should realize he will be forgotten very soon

Maybe I’ll be wrong, but I don’t see him coming close to running and not even as a republican.
