POTUS* is a “continuing threat to Democracy” – the end of the Trump era begins

2 min read

It has come to this, despite complaints that it’s all happening too fast while Trump refuses to follow the law. As Speaker Pelosi prays for Trump, so should we pray for the nation.

Two presidents have been impeached by the House: Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. No president has ever been convicted by the Senate, and so far there is no evidence that Republicans are willing to defect in large enough numbers to convict Trump. We’re not even sure any House Republicans will vote to impeach him.
Republicans control the Senate and thus can shape the trial to Trump’s political benefit. The trial is expected to start in January and could last anywhere from two weeks to two months.
