But to return to the original point, if the Senate wanted to levy a penalty it consider lesser than removal, it’s within its constitutional limits to do so. But that's not good enough.

I believe she was concerned about the very scenario we’re looking at now: Charges that persuade nobody who didn’t already hate Trump, meaning that voting for them could be political suicide for Democratic House members elected from districts where Trump is popular.
The portrait that Blackman points out was publicly displayed, not appropriated as Washington’s personal property. It’s just that ordinary commercial transactions aren’t “emoluments”. Courts have consistently thrown out state term limits and other restrictions on federal elected offices.

You could either start with which state has the largest population, or it could be chosen randomly.

It would be an interesting question as to whether legislative action by the House of 2025 plus the Senate of 2025 plus the President of 2025 could remove a 2019 Senate disqualification by legislation. So easy, but he won’t do it.

As far as I know, there's no limit to how long a speaker can stay. But that wasn’t Washington’s own view. a silly ‘one of these days’ clinger rant that stopped short of expressly mentioning the Second Amendment. I’d say it’s about 50/50 whether the Democrats actually propose articles of impeachment.

Washington was very humble on the topic of constitutional interpretation, and for this reason listened to and deferred to Hamilton, Jefferson, and Madison on constitutional issues.

You are saying that if SCOTUS decides that the Presidency is an “Office of Profit or Trust under [the United States]” for purposes of the emoluments clause, then, necessarily, the speaker of the house is not an Officer? That, to me, suggests you think that the Democrats, or some other liberal group, might conspire to assassinate Pence in precisely the right window, so as to elevate Pelosi. Andrew Wakefield). So, are we to believe that George Washington is infallible on constitutional issues, but James Madison, often referred to as the “Father of the Constitution” and who advanced much more sophisticated constitutional arguments than Washington was not???

For example, to avoid the possibility of foreign allegiance, a President must be a natural born citizen.

And of course the business about buying land at public auction is absurd.
