"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a "60 Minutes" interview that aired Sunday night that one of the motivating factors for some in the new effort to impeach President Trump and remove him from office is to eliminate any chance he has of being elected again." foxnews
Well, pilgrims, IMO the elimination of a re-run with Trump is the ONLY motivation for the farce intended by the giddy but still apprehensive Donkeyland crew.
To accomplish this they need to impeach Trump while he is still in office because impeachment in the US is about REMOVAL of incumbents. The Donkeys claim that they could then wait 90 days to have their captive senate try Trump on the charge of "incitement of insurrection." IMO such a trial would be unconstitutional but with John Roberts as Chief Justice, who knows whether SCOTUS would allow that? They would need a few Never Trump Republicans to have enough votes in the senate but with people like Romney on board, who knows?
And then! Wait for it! The piece de resistance would be a second vote in the senate to bar Trump from FEDERAL office for life. Aahhh! So good! So good! An aged marine once said "if it feels really, really good, it is probably a bad idea." Yes.
IMO Trump needs to resign NOW to put himself beyond the reach of congress. He could still be indicted and tried in a Title 3 court, but the odds are a lot better there.
He is a resident of Florida. Congress does not have the power to bar him from state office. Governor might be a good retirement job when DeSantis moves on to a national role. John Quincy Adams was a congressman for many years AFTER being president. pl
