Impeachment 2.0 is upon us, and the House of Representatives is expected to vote today to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time, with only days left in his presidency. . . .

House Majority Whip James Clyburn laid out a timeline for impeachment on Sunday – and said that Democrats may wait until after Joe Biden’s first 100 days in office to send any impeachment articles to the Senate. . . .

Nancy Pelosi has already admitted the true reason Dems want impeachment: that they’re afraid of Trump running again.

Never before has a senate trial for an impeached president been held after they left office, and 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 last night to outline the case.

Editor’s Note: Here are some key points 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. . . .

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. . . .

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 the view that the purpose of impeachment is to remove from office a president before he can cause further harm. That article and section reads “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.”

As for Pelosi desiring impeachment to prevent Trump from running again, Luttig says “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.” . . . .

Impeachment Trial will begin after Joe Biden’s Inauguration, the only problem is, it will be his impeachment and not Donald Trumps.

Nancy Pelosi’s attempt to impeach president Donald Trump will miserably fail. It’s going nowhere.

But what is more important about impeachment, is the much bigger picture for Joe Biden, because on January 21st, one day after his Presidential Inauguration, Articles of Impeachment will be drawn against him from freshman Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Greene has promised to bring articles of impeachment against Joe Biden and rightfully so. Hopefully many more Republicans will join in this fight to impeach Joe Biden for his illegal, corrupt ties to America’s enemy, Communist China, and for the Democrats involvement in massive, widespread voter fraud.

75 million Americans will refuse to recognize Joe Biden as the true and legal president. He will never be able to unify the country. His presidency is doomed for failure.

God, we pray that you will be with Marjorie Taylor Greene and bless in her efforts for truth and justice. In Jesus name Amen.
