This is interesting, because as Twitchy reported the other day, one of the anti-Trump law professors Democrats called to testify on impeachment before the House Judiciary Committee wrote a piece for Bloomberg following the House vote on impeachment arguing that impeachment is a process, not a vote, and that while the House may have voted to impeach President Trump, the process isn’t complete until House managers take the articles of impeachment to the Senate floor. In other words, Trump hasn’t technically been impeached yet.

That doesn’t matter to people like MSNBC’s Katy Tur, who reminds us that Trump “will forever have an asterisk next to his name,” and CNN’s Jake Tapper, who opined that impeachment “might be the only thing people know about Donald Trump” after we’re all long gone.

A solemn Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who spoke to reporters following the impeachment vote (which gave her “a spring in her step”), definitely falls into the latter camp, telling the AP that Trump “will be impeached forever. No matter what the Senate does. He’s impeached forever because he violated our Constitution.”

She did say she’d “show the power of the gavel” as speaker.
