I’m starting to see some articles (such as this one) claiming that Trump’s impeachment might not happen until after Jan 20, when Biden is already president. My question is: Would such an impeachment accomplish anything? Would it be anything more than an official (=toothless) censure of President Trump?
My understanding of impeachment is that it is the first step toward actually removing him from office. It this can’t happen in the next two weeks, then what’s the point?
