An Interesting Dilemma…

Once upon a Time in the Land of 🇺🇸, an 🇺🇸 President was Impeached not Once, but Twice.

And the 2nd Impeachment Trial was for what?

Trump had been impeached for the second time by the House of Representatives on January 13, 2021. The House adopted one article of impeachment against Trump: incitement of insurrection. He is the only U.S. president and only federal official to be impeached twice and acquitted a second time.

What is the penalty for insurrection?

However, the federal statute against it — which is rooted in the American Civil War of the 1860s and provides up to 10 years’ imprisonment for inciting, assisting or engaging in insurrection — doesn’t define the term, so the parameters of the law are unclear. It’s been prosecuted rarely.

Since 1789 about half of Senate impeachment trials have resulted in conviction and removal from office.

The power of impeachment is limited to removal from office but also provides a means by which a removed officer may be disqualified from holding future office. Fines and potential jail time for crimes committed while in office are left to civil courts.

So, there remains a chance that Ex-President Trump could still be Tried in A CRIMINAL Court. Is that what you want?

A Grand Jury is convened and taking the Testimony of Key Witnesses. And will the Grand Jury decide enough Evidence is presented to them that Formal Criminal Charges will be Charged?

Looks as if the Big Ball at the Tip of the Hill is now beginning to Roll down the DOJ Mountain. And who’s at the Bottom of the Mountain? Guess Who?

You know who…Double Jeopardy doesn’t even enter into this picture at all. Can’t Happen. But many Supporters are praying on hands and needles and thinking another Trump Miracle will appear. The only Miracle might be that He is not Actually the Chosen One sent from Heaven as many followers are claiming. Or were claiming. But many are now realizing that something is Rotten in Denmark or Rotten in America. Yes, it sure looks like most of America had no idea of what Trump was capable of Doing and sure looks like he Did Do…

The United States Constitution provides that the House of Representatives “shall have the sole Power of Impeachment” (Article I, section 2) and “the Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments … [but] no person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present” (Article I, section 3). The president, vice president, and all civil officers of the United States are subject to impeachment.

The practice of impeachment originated in England and was later used by many of the American colonial and state governments. As adopted by the framers of the Constitution, this congressional power is a fundamental component of the system of “checks and balances.” Through the impeachment process, Congress charges and then tries an official of the federal government for “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” The definition of “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” was not specified in the Constitution and has long been the subject of debate.

In impeachment proceedings, the House of Representatives charges an official of the federal government by approving, by simple majority vote, articles of impeachment. After the House of Representatives sends its articles of impeachment to the Senate, the Senate sits as a High Court of Impeachment to consider evidence, hear witnesses, and vote to acquit or convict the impeached official. A committee of representatives, called “managers,” act as prosecutors before the Senate. In the case of presidential impeachment trials, the chief justice of the United States presides. The Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict, and the penalty for an impeached official upon conviction is removal from office. In some cases, the Senate has also disqualified such officials from holding public offices in the future. There is no appeal. Since 1789 about half of Senate impeachment trials have resulted in conviction and removal from office.
