Don't Democrats Learn the Constitution in Government Class

11/7/18 The Federalist:
Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., revealed plans for House Democrats to investigate and impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh for alleged perjury and investigate and impeach President Donald Trump for alleged treasonous collusion with Russia.
U.S. Constitution, Art. I, sec.  3:
The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
And somehow the Senate that just confirmed (with more Democrats than it has now) is going to do this?  The House can pass bills of impeachment every day if it wants, and nothing happens.

The House impeaches.

The Senate convicts.

That is why Clinton was impeached, but not convicted.
