I don't think it's all that hard to know what the Supreme Court would do.  Impeaching a former president, the wobbly precedents notwithstanding, would represent the large expansion of the impeachment power of the Congress.  I think the Roberts SC would nullify any legal action arising from such a decision, as I have outlined.

"In 1993, the Supreme Court held that it’s not for the courts to review the propriety of impeachments. As Chief Justice William Rehnquist wrote, neither any extrinsic evidence from the Constitutional Convention nor contemporaneous commentary suggested that the founders even contemplated “the possibility of judicial review in the context of the impeachment powers.” It’s ultimately Congress’s call — for former officers as much as current ones."

He is a sad beaten man desperate to grasp any modicum of false dignity leaving the WH. Eager for some final taste of pomp being a President, he asked for a major send-off from the WH on inauguration day before taking his last Presidential flight to Palm Beach.

Hes been contacting bannon trying to finda way to reverse the will of the people.

Yet it's difficult to feel any sympathy for the conman, or any confidence he is no longer a threat to the country.
