@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor No sir the Senate can convene until January 19th at the earliest the only reason why they can't convene earlier is because it only takes one Senator to say I don't want to go and they don't go he has way more than one objection number two it's unconstitutional
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor The Democrats are respected to officially have an article of impeachment finished but they have said they're going to delay sending this article to Senate it's mostly just to score cheap political points and say hey look at me I impeach him twice
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor Constitutionally you cannot impeach a president that is no longer president when the Constitution was formed it was very strict in Article 2 that it would be different from the Imperial rule of England where a private citizen could be impeached
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor So what will happen is one Senator will automatically reject the Senate will not come back until January 19th Joe will be sworn in at 12 and at 12:01 the articles of impeachment expire as it is unconstitutional to hold a impeachment of a private citizen
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor Trump will still be entitled to all of his benefits under the previous presidents Act including his pension and everything else and he will be able to hold office any office because you must fully impeach and convict before that can happen they don't have time simple
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor The Senate even democratically-controlled cannot revote to strip the power of a private citizen because Constitution says for that to happen they must be convicted fully and after trial and Trump can have a legal defense but it will never go that far
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor The only way that the Articles could proceed is they challenge this to the Supreme Court but the Supreme Court will not give Congress The Authority obviously under no other pretense than the Constitution as written because it is written very clearly as the procedures
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor Basically lays out the power of impeachment on a person that is an incumbent not a private citizen. And of course there is no hope in the courts because even with a liberal majority the Constitution spells it out too clearly they spend extra time crafting this
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor Therefore it is not vague at all in the terms the same as the word shall used a lot in the Constitution because it holds way more legal power so 12:01 everyone will have Joe Trump will walk away free.
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor Mike Pence has came out and said that he refuses to invoke the 25th Amendment and that is off the table completely so that is the only Avenue right now that could strip him of power and open up a senate vote but it is refused by the Vice President and he doesn't have support too.
@kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor And the house resolution that was passed yesterday was largely symbolic and has no bite at all it's just an urge to formally request Mike Pence to invoke the 25th and he has came out and said that is off the table with only 6 days left in his presidency.

@MaxHKaplan @predacle @kkelly80 @JakeSherman McConnell issued a memo to Senate colleagues saying any House resolution on the impeachment couldn’t be transmitted to the upper chamber until Jan. 19 based on the body’s current calendar — rendering any House vote to impeach a moot point.
@MaxHKaplan @predacle @kkelly80 @JakeSherman But McConnell is not doing it

@NickNYIslesMets @kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor As you say it is unclear but there is little to no legal precedent other than two instances in recorded history the Supreme Court because of how the Constitution is laid out properly and it is written pretty strongly i don't believe at all they will rule anything.
@NickNYIslesMets @kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor As a constitution spreads out as interpretive only incumbents a tool that was used literally so America's impeachment law would not be used against private citizens. It is highly unlikely with little to no chance that the Supreme Court will give congressional power that way.
@NickNYIslesMets @kiki_cliff @Peaceforus21 @NYCMayor More likely they will refuse to hear the case.
