The Senate connot try somone who is not the president. End of story.Impeachment has already happened. Conviction by the Senate is a political process. When a commander in chief for months eggs on his followers to disrupt a certified election of his replacement, rallies them together and unleashes them on Congress, then does nothing to protect Congress for hours while he watches “his people” waving “his flags” violently seize the Capitol Building, we are dealing with exactly the kind of treason to our Republic & “high crimes and misdemeanors” that the impeachment process was meant to deal with.
In other countries parliaments can quickly pass a “no confidence” motion to bring down such an outrageous President or Prime Minister. Our system provides mainly just this awkward impeachment process. If not enough Republican Senators rise to support impeachment, what is left of Congressional authority will be fatally wounded. This is not about what is temporarily popular with any party’s supporters, but about defense of what is left of our Republic’s basic institutions.
Your justification for this idiocy is pure bullshit.
