No, The Supreme Court Cannot Invalidate A President

March 25, 2017
I have seen many reports/articles of late stating that the Supreme Court is moving to invalidate President Trump.

To be clear, it does not rest on the shoulders of the Supreme Court to impeach/invalidate a sitting President. It’s more complicated than that.

It is the duty of the House of Representatives to draw up charges against a sitting President.  The House then votes on whether to impeach or not.

The House acts as the prosecutor, the Senate sits as the jury, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court sits as the presiding Judge. 

*NOTE: There has to be an indictable crime 

*The Supreme Court’s only job is to make a final ruling/interpretation of Federal Constitutional Law
