Impeachment Statute?

It looks like the GOP of the South

seek to prevent the second impeachment of Trump

for the sole reason that his term of office has expired

and he is now a private citizen.


The term of office is no statute for impeachment

as long as the articles have been approved

before Trump became a private citizen and

that the articles contain

a charge of fomenting rebellion

against a separate branch of government,

plus the petition to disqualify Trump from serving

as a government employee.

But frankly, I believe that whatever  happens

in this trial, it would not matter.

The damage is done.

Deep pride has risen from all points

of the country which may again repeat Lincoln’s

“Four scores and seven years ago,

our forefathers ended it with

a trial by combat”

(Heaven forbid...)
