Quoted @MZHemingway

I highly recommend @ByronYork's meticulously reported and enjoyable-to-read "Obsession" -- about the Democrats' years-long campaign against Trump. It is even more timely now than when it was released a couple of months ago. You'd do well to read it. https://t.co/BOLcFnjGjP

Thank you! https://t.co/FgQw2yx13c

Quoted @ithizar

@ByronYork The President of the United States was impeached. This is the trial for that impeachment. Roberts should be presiding. I disagree with the constitutional interpretation that says he does not have to.

The Constitution says 'The President...shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.' There's only one president at a time, and it's not Donald Trump. https://t.co/aPBgow6Ouw

@ByronYork Enough of the impeachment porn.

My guess is we wouldn't be talking about it had the House not impeached the president with 168 hours remaining in his term and the Senate is now preparing to try an ex-president in a constitutionally questionable process. https://t.co/9DlrDEZRHX

@ByronYork Byron does anyone know why Justice Robert's will not preside?

He hasn't said, but the Constitution requires the CJ preside when a president is tried, and no president is being tried. https://t.co/HqjeuIiuwY

Quoted @fatt_maddison

@ByronYork Forgive me if I'm wrong but didn't Senate acquit Belknap on the grounds that they didn't feel they had jurisdiction?

Vote to convict Belknap was 37 to 25. (There were 76 seats in the Senate at that time, one of which was vacant.) Fell short of 2/3 conviction. Of the 25 nays, appears most believed the Senate could not try a former official. https://t.co/pdQ2WcetpN

Why do you dismiss criminal prosecution so quickly? It could have serious consequences, whereas a guilty impeachment verdict at most would bar Trump from holding an office he very likely will never run for anyway. https://t.co/QchRGYvSB3 https://t.co/KlkeC0YR5G

Sorry. It appears that the Blount case established that senators are not 'civil officers' and thus not subject to impeachment. (A decision made by senators themselves, interestingly.)  https://t.co/d6XXSyM9AX

Quoted @LoungingL

@ByronYork Since impeachment occurs in the House, that would be truly a case of impeaching an ex-President. Trump was still President when the House impeached him. The Senate conducts the trial once impeachment has already occurred.

Democrats and the scholars supporting the Trump trial point to the Belknap case, which involved the Secretary of War being impeached and tried, all *after* he left office. (He resigned in an attempt to avoid impeachment.) https://t.co/KP9mF3dNzX

Quoted @TruthAlabama

@ByronYork And why limit it to living ex Presidents???

I believe the Democrats and scholars supporting the Trump trial would argue that the Constitution does not specifically prohibit the impeachment of dead presidents, although they would probably concede there are practical considerations involved. https://t.co/HAGCuulvv6

Quoted @msimpson32

@ByronYork How does this not end up in the Supreme Court?

1) If Trump does not pursue case through the courts, or 2) If the Supreme Court declines to hear it. https://t.co/OA14UiVf06

@ByronYork If Leahy is presiding over the trial does he also have a vote?

Yes. He's a senator. https://t.co/1LQ5kSOsze

@ByronYork Carter trial?

Seems a bit farfetched, but I believe the Democrats and scholars supporting the Trump trial would argue that it is constitutionally permissible. https://t.co/tyhHabgt49

Quoted @KevinQuirk9

@ByronYork So congress could impeach Obama, W or Clinton over some newly found document? I don’t think that’s constitutional.

The answer, according to the Democrats and scholars supporting the Trump trial, is yes. Carter, too. https://t.co/uPGf2VgVR6

And, of course, as far as trying a former President of the United States is concerned, there is no precedent at all for what Senate Democrats are doing.

And of course Trump did not resign to avoid impeachment, choosing instead to serve his full term.

The precedent, such as it is, rests almost entirely on the Belknap case. But there are dozens of precedents in which Congress chose not to pursue officials who resigned at some stage in the impeachment or pre-impeachment process. https://t.co/kbkkaLIwap

I think the people who are arguing that this trial is constitutional would argue that a future impeachment of former President Trump would also be constitutional. https://t.co/poxm7vKXoL https://t.co/FaYL9aWUw2
