Legal question regarding impeachment.

Republicans are saying it wasn’t constitutional to impeach a former president. To my understanding, a president can not be prosecuted for his crimes unless he is impeached and convicted. So are they saying the DOJ is free to prosecute Trump for the insurrection now that he is a private citizen. Or are they saying a president can do anything he wants in his last days in office without consequences?

Can the Supreme Court block expansion of the Supreme Court?

I know little about the law, but it seems anything Congress does can be challenged to the Supreme Court. Hypothetically, what if a majority opposed expansion. It wouldn't matter how ridiculous the majority decision is would it?

What happens with all the leftover money in Trump campaign funds if when he loses

He is clearly profiting off it now by doing things like charging rent to the campaign for property he owns. Do the laws allow him to expand the grifts and funnel the rest of that money into his personal accounts?

Who else but Trump?


Who else but Trump could bring back the 1918 pandemic, the 1929 Great Depression, and the 1968 race riots all in one year? #TrumpSlogans

Does anyone know where I can buy some gloves online.

I'm trying to help procure some for a home health worker and she can't find them anywhere. Even Amazon won't sell to the agency and the prices I see on eBay are ridiculous.

edit: Thanks for the replies, everyone. I see several options. I don't think the person at this agency worked very hard to find them. I probably have looked around a little more myself before I even posted this.
