Senator Mitt Romney claimed it was constitutional to continue with the impeachment against President Donald Trump despite the fact he's left office.

During CNN’s “State of the Union," Romney argued the case for Trump's impeachment trial.

Anchor Dana Bash asked:

"Many of your colleagues, I’m sure you’ve heard, argue that it’s not constitutional to convict a president who is no longer in office."

"Do you agree with that? ”

Romney replied:

“Well, I’ve read a number of law review articles."

WATCH:

"And I think if you put aside the partisan columns if you will written in various publications and look at those that are written by academics, you’ll find that the preponderance of the legal opinion is that an impeachment trial after someone has left office is constitutional."

"I believe that’s the case."

"I’ll, of course, hear what the lawyers have to say for each side," Romney added.

"But I think it’s pretty clear that the effort is constitutional.”

Earlier this week, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said that the House Nancy Pelosi's Speaker would deliver articles of impeachment against Trump to the Senate on Monday.

This month, the House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump for a second time for "incitement of insurrection," following the riots at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Democrats said the riot was a failed attempt to stop the certification of Joe Biden.

"I've spoken to Speaker Pelosi, who informed me that the article would be delivered to the Senate on Monday," Schumer, D-N.Y., said on Friday.

Schumer has been involved in discussions on how to organize the Senate and special rules for the impeachment trial with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
