    Hope so. Yeah I don't think they can get it through the senate. That would nip it in the bud. I was thinking if they could actually get it through, then I don't think an impeached President would be eligible to run for re-election, would he?

    No.

    Article 1, Section 3, Clause 7 of the Constitution says:
    Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.

    So the Senate has the power to vote separately on removal (by supermajority) and/or disqualification (by simple majority), but the one does not imply the other.

    I don't know of any restriction on an impeached individual from running for office - as far as I can tell, it's only the Senate that can remove (by supermajority) or disqualify (by simple majority) a person from holding office. And since the Senate doesn't even get the matter until the House actually impeaches....

    Nancy Pelosi once again tamps down calls for impeachment.

    Lynch has revealed that she isn't happy with Comey and, among other things, emphatically denies telling him to call the Hillary Clinton email probe a "matter" instead of an "investigation."

    It's kinda entertaining to watch. I bet JimL won't be able to keep up.

    Well now, this is very interesting. If this story is true (it is from CNN, so no guarantees), then it seems that Mueller's own team doesn't want him publicly testifying.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has expressed reluctance to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter.

    The special counsel's team has conveyed the notion that Mueller does not want to appear political after staying behind the scenes for two years and not speaking as he conducted his investigation into President Donald Trump. One option is to have him testify behind closed doors. But the notion that Mueller would only answer questions in private has become a sticking point, according to a source, as Democrats believe the public needs to hear directly from the special counsel.

    Rank-and-file Democrats made clear Tuesday they believe Mueller must testify publicly given the gravity of the investigation.

    https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/05/21/pol...ons/index.html

    "The special counsel's team has conveyed the notion that Mueller does not want to appear political..."

    That sounds like BS excuse if I've ever heard one. If the investigation was on the up and up, and Mueller simply tells the truth, then how could it be political?

    I wonder what the real reason is his "team" doesn't want him to testify? It's a good bet there are questions he really doesn't want to have to answer.
