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
@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
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 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
@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
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
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 https://t.co/AFoD8X9dRv https://t.co/raBhySZGoj
