The left hates President Trump with a passion and the reason why is that he represents the American people. The people in this country that work hard, love their families, God, and the American way. The left despises that since it is based on Christian Judeo principles and that is what they want to destroy.
Since these rabid liberals couldn’t get to us they went after Trump and did all they could to break him.
In a disgusting display of political assassination, Nancy Pelosi and her minions led the charge to vote to impeach Trump not once but twice. However, Pelosi has shown that she has never read the constitution since she had some hair-brained idea that you could impeach Trump even after leaving office.
Well, the wicked witch of the west was just handed some very bad news that you CANNOT impeach Trump after leaving office.
And, this isn’t the first judge to give her the bad news. In fact, this is the 4th judge to break Pelosi’s, wicked heart,
You can bet that she is having one hell of a temper tantrum now.
J. Michael Luttig, a former judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, made the case that doing so would be unconstitutional.
He penned an op-ed in the Washington Post to outline the case.
To quote the key parts of his argument:
The sequencing of the House impeachment proceedings before Trump’s departure from office and the inauguration of the new president, followed by a Senate impeachment trial, perhaps months later, raises the question of whether a former president can be impeached after he leaves office.
The Constitution itself answers this question clearly: No, he cannot be. Once Trump’s term ends on Jan. 20, Congress loses its constitutional authority to continue impeachment proceedings against him — even if the House has already approved articles of impeachment.
Therefore, if the House of Representatives were to impeach the president before he leaves office, the Senate could not thereafter convict the former president and disqualify him under the Constitution from future public office.
The reason for this is found in the Constitution itself. Trump would no longer be incumbent in the Office of the President at the time of the delayed Senate proceeding and would no longer be subject to “impeachment conviction” by the Senate, under the Constitution’s Impeachment Clauses. Which is to say that the Senate’s only power under the Constitution is to convict — or not — an incumbent president.
Luttig says that Article II Section 4 of the Constitution confirms that impeachment is to remove a president from office before he can cause further harm.
That article and section stated: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
Furthermore, Article I Section 3 reads: “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 United States.”
Luttig then went after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s latest witch hunt to impeach the president days before he leaves office.
“This is incorrect because it is a constitutional impeachment of a president that authorizes his constitutional disqualification. If a president has not been constitutionally impeached, then the Senate is without the constitutional power to disqualify him from future office.”
