George Conway suggests Trump could get impeached again if GOP Senate lets him off the hook

Could President Donald Trump be the first president in American history to get impeached twice?

George Conway, the husband of Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, suggested on Tuesday that Democrats could pursue a second impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump if Republicans in the Senate let the president off the hook.

While reacting to news that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) plans to push articles of impeachment by the end of the year while also continuing other investigations into the president next year, Conway said there’s nothing stopping Democrats from launching another inquiry should they uncover even more damning proof of presidential misconduct.

“Remember: There’s nothing in the Constitution that prevents a second impeachment should additional evidence of high crimes or misdemeanors be adduced,” Conway wrote.

A second impeachment inquiry into Trump would be unprecedented, as the only other past presidents to face impeachment — Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton — all had to go through just one round of impeachment articles.

The protester, who reportedly was shouting about abortion and calling on senators to dismiss the charges, was ordered ejected from the chamber by Chief Justice John Roberts. He continued to shout as he was being removed from the premises.

A protester just burst into the Senate gallery, Gallery 5, across chamber from the dais, yelling something like "Jesus Christ! They're trying to overturn the election!" Capitol Police instantly grabbed him and pulled him out to the hall. Yelling continued. #impeachmenttrial

Mitch McConnell just gave Democrats a huge gift — by publicly tainting any acquittal of Trump: columnist

Published

on

It seems all but inevitable that the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump will end with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) mustering the votes to block conviction, no matter what the evidence says and no matter whether Democrats successfully bring in new witnesses and documents.

But McConnell has already handed a victory to Democrats in one key aspect, wrote columnist E. J. Dionne for the Washington Post. His handling of the trial has removed any possibility that impeachment will bolster the president's approval — and emboldened Democrats to take their case to the American people as hard as they can. Indeed, wrote Dionne, Democrats "owe a debt" to McConnell.
