So, if the House impeaches, will the Senate convict? And if not, does that help Trump's re-election chances?We have 18 months of Democratic infighting to look forward to before Trump declares the election rigged and refuses to leave office https://t.co/YknXlyw9lE— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) April 19, 2019
Impeachment is the unicorn of Constitutional law: nobody's ever seen it, but we're all sure we are the virgins who could finally capture one. In reality, we are dogs chasing a car: what do we do with it if we catch it? We are sure we know the answer but, since we've never done it, why are we so sure?
This is a striking footnote. It’s raising seriously the possibility of criminal liability when Trump leaves office. Amazing. https://t.co/zSuMf1tL0f— Neal Katyal (@neal_katyal) April 18, 2019
That is a much surer route to justice. In the end, this should be a legal matter, not a political one.
