Don’t think for a minute that Impeachment 2.0 is the end of Congressional harassment of former President Donald Trump.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says if they don’t get a conviction in the U.S. Senate they will, in all likelihood, invoke the 14th Amendment in order to bar Trump from ever seeking the presidency again.

The measure would take the form of legislation, which would have to be introduced and voted on. With Senators Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Ben Sasse and other Republicans already siding with Democrats on the impeachment trial proceeding, Schumer now knows he can likely count on their votes if legislation is brought to the floor. A pretty smart whipping exercise, if you ask us.

Whatever happens, one thing is clear: Trump is not out of the woods yet.
