Trump not really impeached?

Trump technically impeached, really?
A good article and opinion here.

House-Senate Impeachment Impasse Would Mean Trump Wasn't Impeached At All: Harvard Law Prof

“If the House does not communicate its impeachment to the Senate, it hasn’t actually impeached the president. If the articles are not transmitted, Trump could legitimately say that he wasn’t truly impeached at all.

“That’s because “impeachment” under the Constitution means the House sending its approved articles of to the Senate, with House managers standing up in the Senate and saying the president is impeached.

“As for the headlines we saw after the House vote saying, “TRUMP IMPEACHED,” those are a media shorthand, not a technically correct legal statement. So far, the House has voted to impeach (future tense) Trump. He isn’t impeached (past tense) until the articles go to the Senate and the House members deliver the message. -Noah Feldman"


"The reason the Democrats don’t want to submit the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate is that they don’t want corrupt politician Adam Shifty Schiff to testify under oath, nor do they want the Whistleblower, the missing second Whistleblower, the informer, the Bidens, to testify!"

"So after the Democrats gave me no Due Process in the House, no lawyers, no witnesses, no nothing, they now want to tell the Senate how to run their trial. Actually, they have zero proof of anything, they will never even show up. They want out. I want an immediate trial!"

"The House Democrats were unable to get even a single vote from the Republicans on their Impeachment Hoax. The Republicans have never been so united! The Dem’s case is so bad that they don’t even want to go to trial!"

“Dems called it an emergency. They had to rush the impeachment through Congress.
Now AFTER a sham impeachment process, they’re going to wait to send the actual Articles to the Senate?
They don’t take the Constitution seriously. This is all about attacking the President.”

The Bee Explains: Impeachment
December 17th, 2019

The bee is correct. Trump is impeached for the crime of winning the elections in 2016, for the crime of beating HRC. Now Pelosi and her key Dem leaders know that they cannot win in 2020.

Pelosi and gang will postpone the transmittal, if ever, of the impeachment articles to the Senate unless they can dictate the terms favorable to them. Good luck.
