Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Once it has been voted by the House, for sure.  But the trial must occur in the Senate.  Should the Senate fail to impeach, I don't know if a subsequent criminal charge once the President has left office, would be considered double jeopardy.  Nor do I know if such post term prosecution is provided for in the U.S. Code.  Help.
