Op-Ed: Impeach the president again

‘If ever a presidential act qualified for impeachment, it would be openly trying to reverse an election outcome. While it sounds almost bizarre to make such a suggestion when the president’s term is over in two months, the move would have a useful byproduct: The Senate could prevent Trump from running again in 2024.

The impeachment clause of the Constitution allows the Senate to impose two possible punishments: “removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.” While two-thirds of the Senate is required for removal from office in an impeachment trial, precedents involving the impeachment of judges indicate that only a majority vote would be required to make the penalty a disqualification from future office….’

  2. Brilliant! but plausible for the GOP cum the TOP?? Probably not. Bluster and slavish ‘devotion’ to power at the cost of civility have gelitan-ized too many backbones in the Senate

  3. I don’t recall Obama spending his own money on “the election challenge” of 2017.
    Btw, on this solemn, 57th anniversary of my Irish Catholic President’s assassination, recent history leaves no doubt which president met with Allan Dulles’s deep state bastards (Brennan, Comey et al) at the oval office in January 2017 to launch Russiagate.
    I can’t think of any more regrettable behavior to John F. Kennedy’s memory. Bookend pathological Narcissists are the last two presidents but Obama surely wins the prize, projective Identification par excellence.
