Is Steve Kelley really that uneducated about how impeachment works, or is he just playing to the conservative base?
There are good reasons to impeach (and by the way, Nancy Pelosi did her part while Trump is still in office, so even the premise is flawed), even if the conviction can’t be completed until after Trump is out of office.
There are still important objectives that can be accomplished by impeaching and convicting:
• Terminate Trump’s lifetime pension (which he is gonna need as all his debts get called and no more sugar daddies to bail him out — Daddy is gone, Vladdy Putin has no more use for his washed-up puppet, and Deutsche Bank has turned off the spigot)
• Terminate Trump’s lifetime travel expense account
• MOST IMPORTANT: conviction on the impeachment can optionally include a secondary finding that the person convicted can be barred from ever holding any office or position of public trust ever again. This would protect the American people from ever again being subjected to the menace of a Donald Trump future presidency.
