Victor Williams today (January 31, 2020) issued a press statement that argues that an immediate Senate acquittal -- without calling witnesses -- will prove that the House action was not valid impeachment but was rather an (unsuccessful) attempt at attainder -- that is to "accinct" to taint, stain, and blacken Trump.
Williams is also an insurgent 2020 GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate in Virginia. (vw4v.com)
On January 27, 2020, Prof. Victor Williams lodged a historic (first-ever) Amicus Curiae brief with Senate Impeachment Court to establishment Senate record that House action against President Trump was an illegal "attainder" attempt.
Trump was not impeached by the House -- he was subjected to an unconstitutional attainder attempt.
In Article I, Sections 9 and 10, our Constitution's Framers banned all types of attainder -- legislative defamatory punishments.
Williams's historic Amicus Curiae (friend of the court) brief was lodged with the Chief Justice (at both the Supreme Court and the Senate) and delivered the brief to Senate offices -- both electronically and hand delivered book-form print copies.

Breaking News (December 4, 2019):
Prof. Williams submits "alternative" Testimony to refute anti-Trump academics testimony before House Judiciary Committee. Williams damns House's "Fraudulent Impeachment" and explains why it is patent fraud:
"The 116th House of Representatives’ harassments against Donald Trump – done in concert with DC establishment perfidy and deep state treachery – has now metastasized into a fraudulent impeachment"
While “fake” and “sham” and “bogus” are accurate-enough adjectives for the ongoing House punishing ordeal directed against Trump, the descriptor “fraudulent” has both legal truth and constitutional consequences.
Legal fraud is defined as “an intentional perversion of truth in order to induce another to surrender a legal right.”
Williams argues that the "fraudulent impeachment ordeal" is an unconstitutional "Attainder" (i.e. prohibited legislative punishment of an individual meant to blacken targeted person's reputation).
“House Resolution 660 -- passed without credible evidence of constitutional crimes or any prospect of Senate conviction -- is purposed only to punish and damage Donald Trump’s reputation. Yet, none dare call it attainder.”
Headline: "Federal judges choose Va. redistricting map favorable to Democrats; six GOP House districts would get bluer," Washington Post, January 23, 2019."
"RICHMOND — Federal judges have selected a Virginia House of Delegates redistricting map that appears to heavily favor Democrats, redrawing the lines of 26 districts and moving several powerful Republicans into unfavorable configurations."
The biased federal judges rigged the Virginia Commonwealth legislative elections ten months before they happened. There was no November 2019 Democrat Blue Wave in Virginia.Just one more example of leftist judicial obstruction to the processes of our Democratic Republic.
