Ted Lieu, an impeachment manager, tells @wolfblitzer on @CNNSitRoom: “My expectation is that the article will be delivered this week” to the Senate to start trial. He quickly added the decision is “above my pay grade,” meaning it’s Pelosi’s call and she has yet to dislclose plans



NEW: Senate Majority Leader McConnell will not agree to reconvene the US Senate before Jan. 19, spokesperson says, meaning a Senate impeachment trial would likely not begin until after President Trump has left office.



The fact that the House GOP leadership has made clear that tomorrow's impeachment vote is a "vote of conscience" for its members—meaning that they've not been lobbied as to how to vote—means that those who vote against impeachment have publicly confirmed their lack of conscience.



@chrislhayes I have been thinking all day Sen. McConnell used the word “PROVOKED” in impeachment of Trump’s involvement on 1/6/20, Speaker Pelosi used “INCITED “ differences in meaning which will the document allude???To me I definitely would think 🤔 incited 🤷🏽‍♀️. Never in life 😩



@WeaponizedPatr1 @D2_Conservative @JonathanTurley Your insistence so threw me, that I forgot to point out that there’s an entirely substantiated basis for impeachment solely in the colloquial use of the word incitement. The meaning of impeachment’s high crimes and misdemeanors is often misconstrued



@DanKEberhart Politico is just another partisan hack job like all the others. Trump called it like it is and fought back. The Democrats and the MSM were the ones slinging the vitriol, and they still are. As far as impeachment, that has no more meaning, just another weapon for Dems to use



@robertdoriannor @irishrygirl Dems need 17 gop to convict trump impeachment and the mcsenator can influence approach and speed of confirmations. It's OK for now, meaning tomorrow. After that, it seems like Dems are ready to move forward aggressively. We can hope.

As he still fails to understand the meaning of 'patriot', I suggest the alternate name of 'pity party'. https://t.co/JGs5Hg135J



@etharranch @KathyBult @Breaking911 He didn’t get impeached. They tried twice. Nancy Pelosi gave lack of meaning to the word impeachment.

@KATHYLEA17 @The_Burwel1 @JuliaDavisNews I’m believe you’re mistaken. The clause re: impeachment you referenced is meant to guard the congressional ‘process’ of impeachment from presidential interference. Meaning, the president can pardon whomever he likes, but that does not stop them from being impeached/removed.

@ggreenwald @Vedantthelegend This seems like a very big deal for you and a lot of other people interested in the justice and optics and long term meaning of such an act and a very small deal to Trump or the Dems pushing for impeachment negotiating the politics of the present moment.



@RexChapman @JoeWilder01 @senatemajldr and yet the @GOP continues to tweet out divisiveness and hate... but, coming out of the other side of their mouths they cry no impeachment we must unify... they add new meaning to scumbaggery....



It hinges on meaning o Article II, Section 2 phrase

It hinges on meaning o Article II, Section 2 phrase "except in cases of impeachment". Strictly literal, as in pardon-seekers who bin impeached? Broadly literal: all co-conspirators n impeachment case? +/ even: prez impeachment offing pardon power? https://t.co/hM9I8yGojA . . https://t.co/nm46NH1Fjo



@RBReich Here's another idea. We need to amend the Constitution to change the pardon powers. And if not convicted in the Senate, amend it to remove Impeachment because it would clearly have no meaning if the Senate and a President are of the same party.

@DarleneLewis100 @JoeBiden All these fake impeachment have lost their meaning. Nobody takes it seriously anymore. Trump is remain the greatest president in nearly a century



Only action of impeachment& conviction&then removal of all authoritarian Repubs who hv infiltrated the party will prove if his words have any meaning... or obvi he gets something in return for it. Though upholding Democracy should be enough. Stop laughing... https://t.co/9cPTtwF2v8

@Girl88Panther @HunterJCullen @natalielkelley3 @LuSelden @BaddCompani “except in the cases of impeachment” meaning it prohibits restoring someone that has been impeached and removed. Not that there is a moratorium on issuing them.



“Chief Justice John Roberts does NOT want to preside over Donald Trump's second impeachment trial - meaning Senate will have to decide if Kamala Harris will take his place” YES!



@mitchellreports @peterbakernyt Trump @POTUS can quietly pardon himself; meaning he won’t make it public to make Senate republicans angry and convict him in the impeachment hearing. But if the DOJ attempts to indict him, he’d reveal that he did pardon himself before leaving the office



@ckmarie Then is he a yes on impeachment? Is he a yes on the removal of Cruz, Hawley and the other senators in voted against certifying the election? If not, his words have no meaning.

@JudiciaryGOP They meaning Pelosi and McConnell are holding this over Potus so he won't declassify certain items and pardon certain people. Apparently, McConnell said he can get sway 17 to vote for impeachment.



@kylenabecker @deplorablejjb Since Day One, President Trump's words have been twisted, taken out of context, given a treasonous meaning, his speeches have been truncated in order to make him look guilty of any and everything... His "Do us a favor" conversation was the basis for the first Impeachment !!!



@DevinNunesDog @DonaldJTrumpJr When they impeach someone for just about anything, impeachment loses its meaning. The first one didn't even specify a crime and the second one will never be proven. Both are doomed to fail. All they done is rile up trolls such as yourself.



@Lithicarb @Joe_Hildebrand Impeachment is process empowered by articles of the US constitution. The SC has previously interpreted these provisions as meaning they have no real role. However, Trump may seek leave to apply to the SC to review the current interpretation to their role in impeachment. Publicity



accountability. trump's second impeachment was the first step, but the senators who perpetuated the lie (that the election was rigged) also lead to the insurrection on our capitol, meaning they need to be removed per the fourteenth amendment section three.



@McFaul America needs to disappear Trump. Legally. Meaning, impeach. #impeachment



@colinoatley @NinaTotenberg Yes he does, and uses Nixon who evaded definite impeachment and very likely conviction by resigning. The link also cites the clause “shall not extend further” re removal from office. What purpose or meaning does that hold here (DJT) as any conviction will be post inauguration?



@fedjudges @Philip_Huff @Greg651 @jdmortenson Senate seems to have held in Blount impeachment that members of Congress do not hold an office within the meaning of the Constitution



@Haunted_Backlog @Newsweek @NonContactHogg the meaning that their own win at the ballots would be equally null and void. If they seriously considered Biden a civilian out of office then you could only pursue legal proceedings, not an impeachment. It's a catch 22.



@abellehayford why are people so stupid? They're just stating the meaning of impeachment



@BroncoBob360 @jaketapper No, he hasn’t. Understand the meaning of the “news” you watch. He doesn’t have the Constitutional power to call off impeachment. He is not President, his energy policy has yet to be implemented, so he has not surrendered to anyone. Some migrants in Guatemala are not a “crisis.”



@MUTlife40 @3thehardWAYYYY @maggieNYT The only thing it says is “in cases of impeachment” meaning you can’t pardon away an impeachment.



Ted Lieu, an impeachment manager, tells @wolfblitzer on @CNNSitRoom: “My expectation is that the article will be delivered this week” to the Senate to start trial. He quickly added the decision is “above my pay grade,” meaning it’s Pelosi’s call and she has yet to dislclose plans



@tribelaw And so, you are back to interpreting Art. I standing alone and considering the meaning of "power of impeachment." Historically, impeachment could include former office holders for wrongdoing during office. And this interpretation makes the most practical sense of course.



@tribelaw @JQCalderwood @jamie_raskin I admire him so much. Not many could have come back to work and taken the lead on the impeachment after the horrible loss he and his family suffered. Raskin is a man of honor. McCarthy doesn’t know the meaning of the word.



@tribelaw Turley fails to consider the architecture of the Constitution and how the "impeachment" appears in each Art. E.g., in Art I, House "shall have the sole Power of Impeachment." No limits. Must look to historical meaning of "Impeachment," not jump to Art 2 reference to impeachment.



@cnnbrk Trump does not understand the meaning of impeachment,even those still working with him don't understand what impeachment means. They are all illitrates,ignorant. It's stupid on their part to still carry on out of law. "Impeachment means you have been removed from office"



@LynzforCongress @ericgarland Chief Justice Roberts made a mockery of the Constitution, the Senate, the oath, and his own role when he administered the impeachment trial oath without even so much as one word about its meaning or a caution to consider whether one will be able to live up to it.



@IngrahamAngle Continue with this impeachment and you will learn the meaning of inserection.



how is teaching the meaning of a word (impeachment) a propaganda



@JasonMillerinDC @newsmax Alan and the rest of you need to brush up on your reading of the impeachment clause, it's meaning, and historical precedent. Here's one to get you started: https://t.co/1PKnfCY5cb



The left has diluted the meaning of words that we use to take seriously. Impeachment and insurrection are examples.



@tribelaw You can be certain R's will make a mockery out of the impeachment process, as they have the Presidential Medal of Freedom and Presidential pardons. Diminishing its meaning is their goal.



@catechill @glennkirschner2 @YouTube No. The clear meaning of that clause is to prevent a pardon from the direct consequences of impeachment and conviction, ie, removal from office and disqualification from future office. There's no chance that a conservative SCOTUS would interpret it any other way.

Trumps Impeachment: No Evidence! Mentally Ill lady told therapist she would kill her. "Only words!" NO THREAT! Police won't come, "Evidence of threat, gun, weapon, letter, etc.??" No evidence! Ever a court case based on WORDS alone???? ALL OPINION OF WORD MEANING/NO EVIDENCE!



@marceelias @USJewishDems Is there any merit to litigate that once impeached he can no longer pardon? Constitution: {President} shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of impeachment. Meaning once impeached he can no longer pardon.



@robreiner Is there any merit to litigate that once impeached he can no longer pardon? Constitution: {President} shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of impeachment. Meaning once impeached he can no longer pardon.



@ShayyD2011 @Anderson727813 @FoxNews No. Look. It. Up. He has been impeached. It is a word that has a meaning. It is what the House does that leads to a trial and maybe removal by the Senate. Impeachment is over. Twice. Over. We’ve had one trial. Now we’ll have another. Removal is in question. FFS, read!!!



@Melanie05689787 @SparEnthusiast @todorokisplug @shlochlo @ShownSolid @AustinCalvo98 @PeYtOn_MiLLeR12 @splatlinger @obbibb @thecatsartist @JerasIkehorn Also, for anyone not getting the full meaning of *impeachment*: the US constitution expressly prohibits a sitting president from pardoning *anyone* (including himself) in case of impeachment. Note, no conviction, removal OR disqualification needed. Just *impeachment*. This is why



#StopTrump & his many accomplices throughout the #TransnationalCrimeSyndicate, meaning #NoPardonsNoImmunity which are also UNCONSTITUTIONAL for people associated with activities resulting in #Impeachment including Trump for insurrection, abuse of power & obstruction of Congress! https://t.co/KQJDWKstB7



@maitlis Also important to note that the obvious meaning of the impeachment bit is that he cannot pardon impeachments, not that he cannot pardon while he’s under impeachment which some have suggested.



@RepNancyMace Then start by voting for impeachment. Words have meaning. Your actions should follow your words.



USA Incompetent Judicial System: Impeachment based on opinion, no evidence, no Tweets, no letters of inciting insurrection! NO EVIDENCE! Only opinion of MEANING NOT INTENDED TO WORDS! GROSS INCOMPTENCE! Each congress person, "OPINION please!" Done, Impeached! USA Insanity!



@RepTrey: "We mustn’t cheapen the meaning and weight of the impeachment process by using it as a weapon against those with whom we disagree." I thought impeachment was about the insurrection that Donald incited, but I guess it's just Donald being treated unfairly. Thanks, Trey.



Words that have lost their shock value and original meaning: racist, impeachment, and white supremacy.



@HerreraBeutler is courageous. Thank you for your impeachment vote. Those who would criticize you do not understand the meaning of accountability. Keep your resolve and stay firm, you’ve acted on behalf of many conservative constituents and we support you.



@Pramas The president's pardon power is absolute except in cases of impeachment (true meaning not legally vetted). Some theorize if the pardon was to help cover a crime for the president it would be illegal. Maybe it's possible to rescind them if they were "purchased"? Maybe we'll see...



@mtgreenee Please work hard to impeach Biden. Impeachment means NOTHING now since DemocRATS have emptied the true meaning of Impeachment and even marriage.



@ex_cult So what? Impeachment no longer has meaning. Congratulations. :-)



@RealTurkana @charles_gaba The pardons should be challenged in court. All theories need to be laid out & the meaning of "except in cases of impeachment" & of 13am par 3, tested in court!



@GlennC_777 @funder I'm not an expert, but I think the only explicit limitation on pres pardons is impeachment, meaning a judge or other official who has been impeached can't have that ruling reversed. IMO when he's convicted in the Senate all actions after House impeachment should be nullified.



@bblock29 I think they way I heard it explained was he can't pardon anyone in regards to his impeachment. Meaning anyone that was involved in what got him impeached. But it matters how it's interpreted.



Roy: "The Democrats drafted articles of impeachment which I believed were flawed. They focused in very specifically on incitement and connecting that to insurrection, which are very specific legal terms and actually have very important meaning in our society.” https://t.co/bqRSh8Tige
