>>now that the house of representatives has impeached president trump of the second time it is up to the u.s. senate to decide whether to hand him his first conviction senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has said he will not call senators back early for a trial so that will happen during the biden administration senate democrats want to ensure that president trump cannot run for office again, but it's unclear if there are enough senate republicans who would vote with them in agree with that washington correspondent jessi eaton or explains details of the process moving forward.
>>the house speaker signature made it official the senate is now tasked with president trump's second impeachment trial, you cannot remove somebody from office who no longer has that office but john malcolm, a constitutional expert with the heritage foundation. so there are questions about whether the senate has the constitutional authority to hold a trial with president trump already out of office after january 20th donald trump is not going to be the president the vice president gore simple officer of the united states is going to be a private citizen that's why senate republican tom cotton is already a no vote. in a statement cotton said the founders design the impeachment process as a way to remove officeholders from public office, not an inquest against private citizens stronger constitutional argument is that he cannot be tried in the senate after january the 20th however i note that there is some historical precedent in 1876 president grand secretary of war resigned amid corruption accusations. the house impeached him anyway and the senate trial on majority of
senators favored convicting him 2 thirds did not so he was in fact acquitted democrats will need 17 republicans to reach the two-thirds requirement. it certainly more likely this time around then it was when the president was impeached in 2019 and only then could the senate hold another vote to fill democrats intentions of barring president trump from ever running for federal office again in washington, i'm jessi to north. after his impeachment wednesday there's still been talk about president trump pardoning himself, but the key question is whether he has the power to legally do so well 4 sanaz tahernia talked to an expert to find out. >>after being impeached for inciting the capitol building right on january 6th there are now reports that president donald trump may try to pardon himself. but what exactly does that mean a federal pardon is a power granted to the president by the u.s. constitution. the completely set aside the punishment for a
federal crime, the pardon clauses found under section 2 of the constitution and it simply states. the president shall have power to grant pardons for offenses against the united states except in cases of impeachment. now federal parting can be granted any time after a crime is committed and while it sets aside punishment. it doesn't signify innocence notably the claws also does not allow the president to pardon a state level crimes or civil suits on january 13th, the house impeached president trump for the federal charge of incitement of insurrection and now the question is can the president actually pardon himself. many legal scholars believe he can not legally pardon himself first because of this charges connected to his impeachment. the clause especifically precludes a pardon under those circumstances. another reason lies in the overall context of the constitution the federalist papers are essays that were written by the to promote ratification of the
constitution in federalist 10 james madison clearly states that no man is allowed to be a judge in his own cause because interest would certainly biases judgment and corrupt his integrity. but there's an even bigger issue it's it's a legal conundrum for the for president he apparently is talking to everyone about wanting to do this. but it's almost begging to be challenged and that puts him in legal jeopardy right the only way >>our government or any interested party could prove that he doesn't have that authority is by actually challenging it in a court of law. so that he be admitting to crimes the president has not tried pardoning himself yet but if he does he would be the first president in the history of the united states to do so reporting in the newsroom sanaz tahernia kron 4 news. >>tonight, delta airlines says it is not allowing pet passengers heading to washington dc to check in

francisco that is 28% of normal usually we've had 11 inches by this point. >>in the rain season under inch in san jose. usually over 6 inches only 16% of normal it the ideal only 2 inches of rain they've had usually 10 inches by this time of year only 23% of normal and you can see it all around the bay area, good part of california of course in the sierra nevada snowpack be affected by that as well so that is not good news and of course because the dry conditions like this and we've been watching this play out currently in a severe drought across most of the bay area now extreme drought conditions towards fairfield and nor there's a lot of county into the sacramento valley so would like to get the rain going right now that's not cooperating so we have enjoyed sunshine while we have these storms continuing to track to the north and will do temperature wise very nice out there we've still got 66 in santa rosa at this hour 59 in san francisco, 65 in san jose 63 degrees a little more in concord high pressure going to hold on the kind of flat now i think for tomorrow at
the front that's going to well the north but that ridge flattens out still leave behind a warm and dry day here in the bay area looks like that will be lowered forecast to we get you into tomorrow, maybe just a couple passing high clouds over the weekend staying dry. there's one week system that drops over the top of that ridge as we get to monday. i think that is going to kick up some wind and then as we get into late next week start to see something maybe some scattered light showers late next week. but that doesn't look like very much gives us pretty dry and after that another one starts to form so there's a hint that we may see a change in the weather pattern right now looks like it is staying dry enjoy that spring-like weather thing much colder next week. and the chance of showers but none of those look very large i live and enjoy it now that's thanks all right. >>the marvel cinematic universe is coming to the
