Serious constitutional questions will arise about whether the US Senate can convict a former president as the impeachment trial will certainly go beyond President Donald Trump’s term. The US House of Representatives impeached President Trump on January 13, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not yet passed the articles of impeachment to the Senate to begin the trial. The New Republic’s Alex Shephard told Sky News that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “had the votes to remove the president” then the trial would have already begun. Mr McConnell has indicated the trial will not begin prior to January 19, one day before Joe Biden’s inauguration. The Senate trial is expected to adversely affect the president-elect’s ability to pass his 1.9 trillion COVID relief package as well as securing swift confirmation of his cabinet picks. Given there has never been an impeachment of a former president, there will be “serious constitutional questions” about whether it can go ahead, Mr Shephard said. “The idea that we would suddenly move on from the Trump era – which was a central part of the Biden campaign – was a fantasy,” he said. “This will be a split screen 100 days. On the one hand you’ll have the Senate trying a former president and on the other hand you’ll have Biden trying to move the country forward.” Serious constitutional questions will arise about whether the US Senate can convict a former president as the impeachment trial will certainly go beyond President Donald Trump’s term.

The Senate could then agree not to proceed with a trial. Trump would remain the only president ever impeached twice, and the censure would stand as an emphatic verdict of history.Congressional Democrats politicized the legitimate case for removing the president. Censure is now the best option.
