Clerk of the House Cheryl Johnson and acting House Sergeant-at-Arms Tim Blodgett on Jan. 25 lead the Democratic House impeachment managers to deliver to the Senate the article of impeachment against former President Donald Trump.

The consequences of the Senate impeachment trial that opens Tuesday could be considerable for former President Donald Trump.

And for almost everybody else.

For Trump, accustomed to earning the word “unprecedented” while he was in office over the past four years, will do it again out of office – the first president to be impeached twice, and the first to face that historic rebuke even after he had moved out of the White House. That’s not the sort of distinction presidents typically aspire to have. 

But the stakes have the potential to be even higher for others, especially for the Republican Party. In the wake of the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol – the insurrection that triggered these impeachment proceedings – a GOP civil war has been ignited over the party’s direction and its tolerance for fringe conspiracy theorists.
