No one questions the political prowess of Nancy Pelosi. So what was the purpose of impeaching a President if she knows it will be dismissed in the Senate? What if she does not submit the impeachment request to the Senate until after Donald Trump is reelected? At that point, she could claim that his election was invalid because he was still under a pending House impeachment.
You may think that the Supreme Court would be the final arbiter in this scenario but the Supreme Court cannot rule on an issue that is not covered in the Constitution. In other words, they cannot legislate from the bench so Trump’s election could not be validated even if the Senate takes up the trial after the election.
Let’s pray that Nancy’s hatred of Trump has some depth and that this is just idle speculation. On the other hand, this is the only scenario that makes sense of the fact that the Democrat Party has voted themselves out of office in 2020 with this baseless impeachment. I do not want to consider the consequences of a Deep State coup under the control of Nancy Pelosi.
If this premise is correct and the 2020 re-election of Trump is thrown into question, who will be in charge until this is resolved? After the expiration of Trump’s first term in January, both Trump and Pence would not hold office. The Constitution then appoints the Speaker of the House to be President.
