16. Welp,

here's another thing -- Schumer. Isn't he the Senate Majority leader yet? Can't he convene a session to conduct the trial before the 20th, even if GA hasn't certified Ossoff and Warnock?

The vote need only be 2/3 of those present, and/or maybe he could convene the Seant for trial on the day that Ossoff and Warnock are sworn in -- even if it's on the 19th. The presentation of evidence can take a few hours, then they take the vote, then it's done.

I'm just hoping that there won't be any judicial shenanigans over the impeachment outcome when the shenanigants actually break the law cited, since the Constitution has no language at all on any timeline for Impeachment and Conviction of a president, especially once the process is begun while he's in office.

At this point Republicans shouldn't even be allowed to think about what they want to do for Trump if they know what's good for them long term. Their whiny excuses about death threats is bogus. If they actually got them, they'd turn to the FBI, but they haven't.
