Constitutional experts differ on whether impeachment and conviction can take place after a president leaves office, but it does seem to be a possibility. One precedent that has been cited repeatedly in the Halloween Friends Blood Moon Shirt past few days is that of the former war department secretary William Belknap, who resigned in 1876 after being accused of bribery but was still impeached by the House and tried by the Senate after leaving office. The House vote was unanimous in favor of impeachment, but the Senate ultimately acquitted Belknap on all five articles when each vote fell short of the needed two-thirds majority. Once an impeachment begins in the House, it may continue to a Senate trial. I don’t see any constitutional problem with the Senate acting fast or slowly, Michael Gerhardt, a law professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, recently told NBC.
