Senate impeachment trial after Trump has left office is constitutional: Romney

Senator Mitt Romney weighed in on the Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump, and said that such a trial is constitutional, and that Trump’s alleged involvement in the U.S. Capitol riot is an impeachable offense. During an interview, the GOP Senator said ’I believe that what is being alleged and what we saw, which is incitement to insurrection, is an impeachable offense. If not, what is?’

Facts. Impeachment is for elected officials, not private citizens and only offers the remedy of removal from office. Impeachment (up until the current administration) is for removal from office for commiting misdemeanor or other high crimes. No crimes have been alleged, and certainly none that have evidentiary support.

I used to like Mitt Romney, this turncoat has a real chip on his shoulder, how anyone could vote for this person is beyond me. He needs to join the Demacratic party. He would feel right at home.

Article 1 Section 3, Clause 3 - " ...Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States; but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law." To my thinking, impeachment is a process set forth to remove a sitting official from office and to keep him from holding office again. The problem here is that Trump is no longer a seated official. I think it precludes him from impeachment.

Of course Romney will claim its constitutional, he's a dedicated swamp monster. Its altogether very unfortunate that plotting against a sitting president isnt a treasonous offense or the entire sitting democratic party would be in front of a firing squad. What really strikes me is that thru all the rhetoric of unity, and doing whats right by the Americans that voted EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM, into the jobs they have, there isnt a single word of getting Joe Biden ousted from office. No plot to drum up fake colusion rumors, no investigations into buisness holdings, no deep state water cooler hate speech as to finding a way to rid our country of a menace that will surely see us all in chains, and not a whimper of inpropriety, made up or factually true, being spoken by our outstanding journalists on main stream news networks. Love Trump or hate him, isnt fair, fair? Get off the man. Youve got a huge set of shoes to fill and in the direction this new predidency is taking us, they have no desire to do anything to our betterment as a nation. Prove me and every American wrong. I dare you.

So by this logic if the Republicans gain control of the house in 2022 then they should be allowed to impeach Bill Clinton.

Job one is to remove CCP Mitch, Bank of China Mitt, and Warmonger Cheney from the Republican party and public office.

Harris needs to be impeached for saying she was proud if the riots and that she hoped they did not stop. They were burning business down and she was ok with it

The lack of precedent/clarity does not make such an act constitutional. At best, we have a situation that the writers of the constitution did not consider, which is likely due to the situation being completely absurd on its face.

Justice Roberts should disqualify every member of the Senate. They can be a witness and or a victim, but can not issue any type of verdict.

See, the problem here is that Romney hates Trump and is blinded by his hate. Ultimately, Romney risks not getting reelected because of his hate. Utah is one of the most conservative states in the country. It's not Massachusetts aacc CD beers not a Democrat. So, his hate will ultimately undo him. Que the liberal hate in three, two, one......

Chief Justice Roberts has already declined to preside at the trial due to his determination that it would, in fact, be unconstitutional. Once again Mittens is talking out of his butt. Him and the other prima donnas in Congress with their breathless indignation are showing their true colors as thirsty for attention wanna bes. Politics is show business for people with no real talent.

The impeachment mechanism is there to remove elected officials from office. Not harass them.
