Tomorrow night, President Trump will deliver the State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress, all while the Senate impeachment trial is expected to conclude the following day or two with a vote to acquit. That’s a lot going on all at once, and Rep. Ilhan Omar appeared to want to give the impression that it’s unprecedented with this question:
Have we ever had an impeached President, deliver the State of the Union address while he is on trial in the Senate?
Given the audience in the room will be both his prosecutors and jurors on said trial.

Well, if she actually wants an answer, here it is:
Yes. Bill Clinton.

Congresswoman, you have a staff that can research this for you. You don't have to ask your followers to inform you that Bill Clinton gave a State of the Union address while his trial was underway. https://t.co/Xt5T9L0mgX

Perhaps Rep. Omar didn’t really want some of her followers to know the answer.
