Impeachment 2: Electric Boogaloo

Chief Justice Roberts will not be presiding over the new Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump. The Constitution requires that the Chief Justice preside at the impeachment trial of the President, thus it seems reasonable to assume the trial will not be an impeachment of a president as a matter of law.

BTW, Vice President Harris will not preside. Senator Leahey will preside in his capacity as President Pro Tempore. It’s beginning to look as if enough of the Senate has figured out that what the House has stirred up isn’t a valid impeachment a President, Vice President, or a civil officer of the United States to render the whole matter dead on arrival. The Democrats will probably make fools of themselves trying to revive the case, but the odds are overwhelmingly against a conviction. It all fits with their propensity for overreach.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

  1. They barely got a majority vote to say it was constitutional. They’ve got zero hope of getting a conviction. I’d ask what they think they’re going to achieve, but we know what – they’re playing to their activist base.
