Democrats Cannot Impeach Trump, and You Can’t Impeach Him After Leaving Office: Dershowitz

    Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Democrats have virtually no chance of successfully impeaching and removing President Donald Trump before Inauguration Day on Jan. 20.

    “The case cannot come to trial in the Senate. Because the Senate has rules, and the rules would not allow the case to come to trial until, according to the majority leader, until 1 p.m. on January 20th, an hour after President Trump leaves office,” Dershowitz said in a Fox Business interview on Sunday.

    Dershowitz, who defended Trump during the Senate impeachment trial about a year ago, suggested that the Constitution does not allow for impeaching a former president.

    “And the Constitution specifically says, ‘The President shall be removed from office upon impeachment.’ It doesn’t say the former president. Congress has no power to impeach or try a private citizen, whether it be a private citizen named Donald Trump or named Barack Obama or anyone else,” he said.

    It comes as House Democrats have proposed articles of impeachment after Trump made a speech to protesters near the Capitol. Some critics have claimed Trump incited the crowd into violence before a group stormed the Capitol building.

    Trump told the crowd beforehand that their protest shows “the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country” and “let us walk down Pennsylvania Avenue.” The president did not tell the protesters to breach the Capitol or commit acts of violence and later condemned them.

    At one point, Trump told the protesters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices be heard.”

    Another Trump defender during the House impeachment inquiry, law professor Jonathan Turley, explained that impeaching Trump over his speech would set a dangerous precedent.

    “When I testified in the impeachment hearings of Trump and Bill Clinton, I noted that an article of impeachment does not have to be based on any clear crime but that Congress has looked to the criminal code to weigh impeachment offenses,” he said in an opinion piece. “For this controversy now, any such comparison would dispel claims of criminal incitement. Despite broad and justified condemnation of his words, Trump never actually called for violence or riots. But he urged his supporters to march on the Capitol to raise their opposition to the certification of electoral votes and to back the recent challenges made by a few members of Congress.”

    Meanwhile, Democrats and some Republicans have floated the idea of Trump’s cabinet invoking the 25th Amendment, which concerns succession of the vice president if the president dies, resigns, or is removed from office.

    Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, a member of his cabinet, dismissed calls to invoke the 25th Amendment.

    “As a Nation we need to heal. I have not talked to anyone about invoking the 25th Amendment, and I am focused on finishing what I started in uplifting the forgotten women and men of America. It’s time to move toward peace. We are not each other’s enemies!” he wrote.

    I made a similar post under the "Pence has lost all my respect" thread. I doubt this is going to happen and if it is persued, its a waste of time.

    And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

    Democrats behaving like children.

    And they have power.

    When God isn’t the ruler of men, this happens.

    Trump is still president until noon January 6th. That's what appears to vex the Demoncrats who want him out right now. They want to get their socialist globalist plans underway asap.

    Do you find yourself wishing this was all a bad dream? And soon the alarm will sound and you'll wake up. The news starts out telling you Trump won his second term and the Republicans won majority in both houses of congress.

    That's what would have happened if the syndicate didn't get away with grand theft of a country. :(

    I do. Sometimes I think we all slide into a different universe and can't slide back home.

    Quite possibly so.
    It's important to own and feel the upset that you have for all this evil against our election. It's grand theft of a country and the future of over 300 million citizens.
    We're entitled to be ticked off. Our nation was taken over by our enemies without a shot fired by them.

    Nancy Pelosi for President !

    Anyone such as she, could be easy impeached as for her record of spastic stunts easy, because she is off her tree 24/7 with all her such wind accusations and childish tantrums, she would not last as President for a month. I have never seen such a clown display, who could take her seriously.
    Obviously Nancy is possessed by a Demon and unhinged lunatic. Henny Penny was her maiden name I am sure.

    I understand... I am not happy about it either. But are you a citizen of this world and are entangled in it or are you a pilgrim and a stranger? Did God tell you it will get better or did he say perilous times will come? We aren't taken out of the world, but are we overcomers in the world?

    You mean January 19, not January 6. But their impeachment nonsense is going nowhere.

    McConnell Won't Convene Senate For Emergency Impeachment Trial

    Update (1257ET): According to the Washington Post, McConnell is done mulling - and has decided not to convene the Senate for an emergency trial - meaning the Democrat-controlled Senate will do so during the Biden administration.

    Now let's see which Republic has the guts to bring Articles of Impeachment against unhinged Nancy Pelosi, who richly deserves to be impeached and removed from Congress immediately.

    Also impeaching private citizen Trump will not happen after January 20, since he has done absolutely nothing to be impeached.

    This part right here...

    This is inscindiary speech right here.

    Over 130 members of congress including sitting senators have voted on the record to not certify the Election results until a proper investigation is done of the legitimacy of votes.

    That's not a few...

    It's like saying that America got its independence from Britain just a few years ago.

    Trump is going to be impeached so that he does not release the paperwork PROVING that George Bush was involved in the murder of JFK

    Bank on it

    Trump has the files, he released some of them already but was prevented from releasing the rest.

    It's not a joke, and you know it
