Senate Trial of a Former President

Senate trial, former president trial

Mitch McConnell is ok with a Senate trial for Former President Trump. On Monday the House delivered to the Senate one article of impeachment for incitement of insurrection. Or “erection” if you’re Chuck Schumer.

So, the Senate trial of Donald Trump is on. Again. But this time Trump isn’t the president. And the purpose of a Senate trial is to remove the president. At least that’s what my copy of the constitution says. It also says that when the President is tried, the Chief Justice presides. But the presiding geezer looks suspiciously like Pat Leahy. Maybe that’s because the president isn’t being tried. I’m no constitutional scholar, I just shoot the wounded. But, as Former President Trump likes to say, we’ll see.

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 The United States: But the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
