This is not unlike their claims about the stolen election.

They WANT to be right so regardless of facts...they just demand to be right...even though they are demonstrably wrong
Yup. Its another dipshit circle jerk. Where they make up an imaginary constitution and ignore the actual one. Just like they made up an imaginary election result and ignored the actual one.

Alas, no one is bound to whatever hapless nonsense these poor souls make up.

But instead, only the actual Constiution. And the Constitution has none of their imaginary requirements.

Sorry asshole, you can't have it both ways. You want to impeach him and claim he's President, then claim he isn't President but we can try him anyway.
WTF?

He can be Impeached because he WAS President. The fact that he is now a private citizen does not preclude Impeachment.

As noted. There is precedent for both Impeaching and trying a private citizen after he left office

Your circular argument is nonsense.
Yup. The only thing necessary for the Senate to hold an impeachment trial.....is that someone be impeached.

There's no requirement that that person continue to hold office. There's no limit if they become a 'private citizen'.

Both those requirements and limits are imaginary nonsense, found no where in the Constitution and contradicted by precedent.

Sorry fellas.....but your imagination doesn't obligate the Senate to do anything.
The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
Trump isn't the president of the United States anymore. Have you not been paying attention? Did you miss the entire Inauguration of Joe Biden?

Thus, the Chief justice doesn't have to preside.

Try again, Troll.

You gonna try Biden? He is currently the President.

Nope. But these silly little snowflakes demand that reality itself must abide whatever dipshit nonsense they make up. That the election results have to change if they don't like the outcome. That the Constitution magically transform if they don't like an impeachment trial.

As Biden's Inauguration and Trump's impending impeachment trial demonstrate elegantly.......neither their imagination nor their feelings amount to much.

So the Constitution says he isn’t subject to trial, only the President.

I accept your capitulation on this.
Good boy! :itsok:

You're confused, snowflake. The house hasn't sent any articles of impeachment to the senate for Biden.

They did for Trump. Do try and keep up.

Nostra You're talking in circles as always.

A. Trump was President when Impeached in the House

B. He is now a private citizen but that does not protect him. Private citizens have been both Impeached and tried in the past

C. Since he is NOW a private citizen the CJ of SCOTUS is not required for the Senate trial. MANY non Presidents have been Impeached and tried in the Senate with either the VP or the President Pro Tem presiding.

So just shut the fuck up.

You're wrong and you're lying and Trolling

Nope. That's you citing your imagination.

Back in reality, there is no 'private citizen' restriction on the Senate's power to try impeachments. You made that up. And Robert's isn't obligated to preside over an impeachment unless the President is tried.

Trump is impeached. But Trump isn't President.

You'll eventually catch up, Troll. Probably when Trump's impeachment trial begins.

Q: Why isn’t Trump filing suit to stop it?
A: Because he knows it’s constitutional.

That's a requirement for the Chief Justice. Not the trial, silly.

Since Trump is no longer President, Justice Roberts isn't obligated to preside over it.

Try again, Troll. Ignore reality all you like.....the Senate still has authority over all impeachment trials.

There is no private citizen restriction. You've made it up.

You made it up. And the Senate isn't bound by your imagination.

As Trump's impending impeachment trial and the impeachment trial of William Belknap after he left office demonstrate elegantly.

Try again, Troll.
