I personally feel that Turley has the better argument.

Re: Trump 2nd Impeachment- 2 opposing views

Opinion by former Rep Bob Barr

BARR: A Motion To Dismiss For Lack Of Jurisdiction Should Swiftly End The Senate Impeachment Farce

“Unlike other sections of the Constitution where clarity may be obscured by arcane wording, this particular provision is clear and concise, and it applies to “the President.” The language pointedly does not provide in any way, shape, or form that a ‘Former President’ or an ‘Ex-President’ may be similarly punished, only the President,”

It is black-letter law that a court cannot punish someone for a crime if it does not have jurisdiction over that person. Just as courts of law have no power over individuals outside their defined jurisdiction, the United States Senate has no power over a former President of the United States.

Chuckie Schumer had a bit of a Freudian slip while talking about the latest impeachment sham.

The executive branch attacked the legislative branch.

Charge Trump with sedition or treason.

Let the chips fall where they may.

He has a Constitutional right to free speech. And he didn’t say anything that promoted a riot.

The Democrats are hypocrites in the highest order with their members fomenting violent speech all last spring and summer.
