McConnell won't agree to reconvene Senate early for impeachment trial

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) office told Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) staff on Wednesday that the GOP will not agree to reconvene the Senate before Jan.

He can't.

"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"

By using the coordinated conjunction "and," the framers implied that being in office is a condition precedent for judgment in cases of impeachment. If the party on trial no longer holds the office subject to impeachment, then it would be an unconstitutional extension of the Senate's impeachment power if their judgment extended to the more general "disqualification." Both removal from office and disqualification are of equal syntactic importance.

So either way Roberts will have to spend time on the subject - because if a republican senator sues, SCOTUS takes up the case.

Then defer to the plain English meaning of the sentence... either way, "removal" and "disqualification" comprise the entirety of the Senate's adjudicatory power. It's an unconstitutional extension of power to disqualify but not remove, remove but not disqualify, or neither remove nor disqualify.

While I understand that impeachment trials have historically included a separate vote on disqualification after the vote on conviction, I don't think that's proper. The Constitution's "shall" language in Art. I, sec. 3, cl. 7 separates impeachment trials from trials on any criminal misconduct for which the officeholder was impeached, and constrains the powers of the Senate. The punishment for impeachment & conviction is removal & disqualification.

That reading would support any impeached party being able to resign immediately upon impeachment to avoid disqualification.

to avoid a *trial*

That kind of thing should be encouraged. It's just like plea deals allow someone to "get out of" the statutorily authorized (in some cases mandated) sentence for their crime. The trade off is judicial efficiency. An impeachment trial of the president requires the participation of the entire senate and the chief justice of the supreme court... If the president resigns, he could still face criminal prosecution.
