As the Democratic House of Representatives rams through a sham impeachment with unprecedented speed, constitutional lawyers have stepped forward to reveal that vindictive plots to convict President Donald Trump in a Senate trial after he leaves office are unconstitutional.
Civil liberties lawyer Alan Dershowitz explained how the prospective impeachment trial of a President who has left office to become a private citizen is outside of Congress’ jurisdiction.
“The jurisdiction of Congress doesn’t contend to private citizens. If it did, if you can impeach and remove a private citizen in order to prevent him or her from running against the president, then you can impeach me.”
So under the absurd notion that’s being put forward by some Senators and pundits, you can try somebody after they leave the office of the president, it would mean that 350 million people would be subject to impeachment and ‘removal or disqualification from office.”
The first day the Senate can realistically convene to begin trial proceedings would be January 19th, a day before Trump leaves office. The President has the right for a time period to select his attorneys and prepare a defense, ensuring that any proceedings would be litigated well after he leaves office.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged that any impeachment plot would have to take place well after President Trump leaves office in a Wednesday statement. Reports from earlier in the week had suggested the establishment politician was inclined to move forward with an impeachment of Trump in a final betrayal of the President.

In a nakedly anti-democratic action, the House and Senate may try to ram through a legally dubious prohibition on President Trump running for federal office again. It’s a vindictive plot with the hopes of embarrassing President Trump and his supporters, feigned by establishment politicians with the political credibility of a damp rag.
Mitch McConnell Will Vote to Confirm Far-Left Open Borders Merrick Garland as Attorney General
What is he thinking?
Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell confirmed that he plans to vote for President Biden’s Attorney General nominee, Merrick Garland, speaking on Tuesday afternoon to Politico.
Garland’s confirmation hearing took a sharply partisan approach, with the spurned former Supreme Court nominee vowing to prioritize political prosecutions of trespassers involved in the January 6th Capitol riot.
Garland may be among Biden’s most radical cabinet nominees, and some have questioned if he intends to pursue revenge on Republicans for spiking his Supreme Court nomination in 2016. The circuit judge espoused a legal philosophy that wouldn’t view illegal immigration as a crime, a radical embrace of Biden’s “America Last” migration approach that prioritizes the interests of illegal aliens over American citizens.

Garland had likened a handful of raucous protestors who trespassed in the Capitol to the Oklahoma city bombing, stating the politically charged incident would be his highest priority as Attorney General. In reality, the vast majority of the dozens of people charged in the riot are charged with misdemeanors- a far cry from an “armed insurrection.” Garland went on to reference vaguely-defined “domestic extremism” as a supposed imminent threat, a recurring sentiment from Biden cabinet nominees looking for an easy means to criminalize activity that challenges the interests of establishment liberalism.

McConnell may live to regret the day in he handed a green light to Biden’s personal attorney. With the Democrat-Corporate-Media complex set to build a system of ‘Total Governance,’ Garland stands to become a crucial figure in an attack on traditional American law and order, aiming to replace it with a system in which neoliberal globalism reigns as the highest law in the land.
