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. FIRST AMENDMENT DEFENSEUnder 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. 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.

FILE PHOTO: U.S. President Donald Trump boards Air Force One at Valley International Airport after visiting the U.S.-Mexico border wall, in Harlingen, Texas, U.S., January 12, 2021. At one point in the speech, Trump told the crowd they should “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”Trump returned to the White House after the remarks and reportedly watched the attack on television. Trump would have a strong argument that he engaged in free speech protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, legal experts said. Trump can argue that his rhetoric was sufficiently ambiguous, and that when he said “fight” he did not mean attack the Capitol, they said. A top prosecutor in the District of Columbia, Ken Kohl, on Jan. 8 told reporters that he did not expect to see a criminal case against Trump for inciting violence.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaThe challengers to Trump’s July directive include various states led by New York, cities, counties and immigrant rights groups. The court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority including three justices appointed by Trump, is scheduled to hear an 80-minute oral argument by teleconference. The challengers argued that Trump is prohibited by the Constitution’s text from excluding illegal immigrants from the population count. The Supreme Court last year ruled 5-4 against Trump’s effort to add a citizenship question to the census. Trump’s administration would base its numbers on data gathered elsewhere.
