According to J. Michael Luttig, a former judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit,
“The Constitution itself answers this question clearly: No, he cannot be. Once Trump’s term ends on Jan. 20, Congress loses its constitutional authority to continue impeachment proceedings against him — even if the House has already approved articles of impeachment.

At the very least she didn’t wait for collectors item pens with her signature embossed to arrive like she did at the time of the first impeachment.
The Dems have only one wish for a successful impeachment – to guarantee they never have to contend with someone with 74m supporters.
