Trump's lawyer assures that the impeachment procedure cannot be applied to a person who no longer holds any public office.


The defense of the ex-head of the White House Donald Trump at the trial of his impeachment in the US Senate reproached the prosecution for the fact that, trying to justify the legality of the removal from office of the already former president, in fact, refers to the precedents of the times of the British Empire, from which the North American colonies left.


The prosecution denied arguments by the Trump defense that impeachment proceedings could not be applied to a person who no longer holds any public office. It referred  to precedents from British history, including the impeachment procedure that Warren Hastings, the former governor of British possessions in India , was subjected to in the 18th century .
