Law professor Jonathan Turley has a reminder about the 'primary purpose' of an impeachment trial

In a series of tweets, Georgetown Law professor Jonathan Turley articulates a similar sentiment to that expressed by Sen. Lindsey Graham in a letter to Sen. Chuck Schumer about the constitutionality or lack thereof regarding a post-presidency impeachment trial.

He invokes the historical anecdote of William Blount, a U.S. senator from Tennessee who in 1797 failed to appear for his impeachment and expulsion trial.

The future of the Constitution, as Turley states, and the ability of the nation to move forward are both important factors to be considered.
