GOP Sen. Rounds Dodges on If He Regrets Not Voting to Impeach Trump After Jan. 6
ROUNDS: "It’s very clear in the Constitution, in the way that the Founding Fathers have laid that out, that you were looking at whether or not an individual was the president of the United States or was just an individual. At the time of that trial, Mr. Trump at that time was an individual. He was not the president of the United States. The Founding Fathers clearly did not want indictments to start on former presidents. They didn’t want that to happen, they saw it going on in England at the time, and most certainly they don't want and they didn’t feel that it was appropriate to go back in and find former officers of the United States and impeach them."
TODD: "Well, you could have barred him from ever running for office again. That was the point of that exercise."
ROUNDS: "Actually, the idea behind an impeachment is to take away the shield of office. That's all it does. After that, other things can occur. And right now, the shield of office is gone and now it's up to the courts."
