Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, rejected Democratic calls for a quick impeachment trial, saying there was no way to finish it before Trump leaves office. That raised the prospect of a bitter trial in the Senate during Biden’s first days in the White House, something he urged Senate leaders to avoid. SENATE TRIALUnder the Constitution, impeachment in the House triggers a trial in the Senate. McConnell has said no trial could begin until the Senate was scheduled to be back in regular session on Tuesday, the day before Biden’s inauguration. TRUMP TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITYIn a video statement released after Wednesday’s vote, Trump did not mention impeachment and took no responsibility for his remarks to supporters last week, but condemned the violence.

In an emotional debate before the 232-197 vote, 10 Republicans joined the majority Democrats in supporting impeachment. Multiple Republicans defended Trump’s remarks as protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which defends free speech. The swift impeachment, one week after the riot, is very unlikely to lead to Trump’s ouster before Biden takes office on Jan. 20. But even if he has left the White House, the Senate could convict Trump and then vote to ban him from running for office again.

McConnell has said no trial could begin until the Senate was scheduled to be back in regular session on Tuesday. If Trump has left the White House, the Senate could convict him and then vote to ban him from running for office again. FIRST AMENDMENT DEFENSEThe article of impeachment - equivalent to an indictment in a criminal trial - charged Trump with “incitement of insurrection” in his incendiary speech to thousands of supporters on Jan. 6. “High-ranking officials get fired for their speech all the time.”Trump’s team could also argue that holding an impeachment trial after he has left office would violate the Constitution. The House impeached Trump in 2019 on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress stemming from his request that Ukraine investigate Biden and his son Hunter.

After President Donald Trump stirred up a seditious mob and sent it to storm Congress last week, he retreated to the White House. Now the article of impeachment moves to the Senate for a trial, with conviction carrying the penalty of removal from office and possible disqualification from future federal office. Both arguments are dangerously misguided, and both misunderstand the vital role of impeachment in protecting our constitutional order. For the American founders, the story of Charles I was a paradigm case for why presidents had to be removable from office via impeachment. The Senate can begin to undo some of that damage by repudiating the seditious last act of a lawless presidency.

Article 2, Section 2, Clause 1: The president "shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment." President Bill Clinton was impeached during his second term and acquitted by the Senate. Johnson sought a second term but didn't get enough votes at the 1868 Democratic National Convention. However, had he gotten enough votes and won a second term, he could have run for a third term (and more) because the 22nd Amendment hadn't been passed at the time.

The team around Trump is hollowed out, with the White House counsel's office not drawing up a legal defense plan and the legislative affairs team largely abandoned. WASHINGTON (AP) — His place in the history books about to be rewritten, President Donald Trump awaited his second impeachment — something no other president has faced — largely alone and silent. Trump kept out of sight in a nearly empty White House as impeachment proceedings played out at the heavily fortified Capitol. There were lawyers, White House messaging meetings, and a media blitz run by allies on conservative television, radio and websites. But there was no effort from the White House to line up votes in the president's defense.

WASHINGTON — Speculation that President Donald Trump might issue pardons before he leaves office for members of his family or other supporters raises a question about whether pardons can be issued pre-emptively — that is, before someone is charged with a crime. Samuel Morison, a Washington lawyer and former pardon attorney at the Justice Department, said a president could even issue a pardon that applies to virtually anything a person might have done in the past. "The limits on the pardon power have to be found in the Constitution, and the only limit the Supreme Court has ever recognized is you have to have committed the offense," Morison said. President Andrew Johnson granted a blanket pardon to anyone involved with the Confederacy during the Civil War. President Jimmy Carter granted unconditional pardons to men who evaded the draft during the Vietnam War.
