    The only stipulation is that one cannot hold "any Office under the United States" during one's continuance in office in either House.

    In other words, the exclusion applies only to members of the Legislative branch. The Executive and Judicial branches labor under no such restrictions. At least so far as the Constitution is concerned. There may be Federal statutes which further restrict one's ability to be a member of both the Executive and Judicial branches, but the Constitution is silent on this point.

    If it doesn't explicitly say that you can't, then you can.
