One side says they want witnesses to say stuff and to present evidence, but I am not sure how they are going to get the other side to listen to any of that in public.

This is probably one of those :For the Record: scenarios.

Of course you are. If someone commits an impeachable offense they should go through the process. Do you think you shouldnít prosecute people after they commit crimes?

The trial here is doubly important because of the impact it will have on what he can and canít do. For example, no longer being eligible to hold office so that we can ensure we donít have to risk him trying to run in 4 years and we true Republicans can have a more level headed candidate.

Of some things he did is my guess.

First, you should have made a poll

Second, its impossible because you need either 14 or 17 republicans to convict which you wont get

The second impeachment will just make his 2024 run stronger when he gets 100m votes after people see how bad biden is.

Whatever, the punishment for conviction is removal from office. So it's moot.

"The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment."

They may wish to officially impeach him so that his pardons can be negated. Maybe all of them depending on how the court decides it, since I am guessing there is no precedent here. This would make egregious pardoning less of a problem since such pardons are nullified by successful impeachment. Also these pardons are for offenses against the United States (like going to war) so there seems to be lots of other avenues to prosecure people he has pardoned.

They can't sentence him to jail and I've never heard of the barred from office idea being used.

Give me an example instead of touching yourself?

From the Constitution of the United States:

Article I, Section 3, Clauses 6 and 7 provide:

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present. 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; but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
