2nd Impeachment of Trump

I wonder how this will turn out in the end, but for sure Trump should be held accountable.


"House Democrats on Monday introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump for inciting a mob that attacked the Capitol last week, vowing to press the charge as Republicans blocked their move to formally call on Vice President Mike Pence to strip him of power under the 25th Amendment.​
The dual actions came as Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her caucus sought to ratchet up pressure on Mr. Pence to intervene and push Mr. Trump to resign. If they did not, the Democrats vowed immediate consequences for Mr. Trump’s role in an attack that put the lives of the vice president, members of Congress and thousands of staff working on Capitol Hill at risk as they met to formalize President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory.​
As expected, Republicans objected to a resolution calling on Mr. Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, meaning that the House would have to call a full vote on the measure on Tuesday. Democratic leaders were confident it would pass, and pressured Republican lawmakers to vote with them to beseech the vice president, who is said to be opposed to using the powers outlined in the Constitution, to do so.​
It was a remarkable threat. If Mr. Pence does not intervene “within 24 hours” and the president does not resign, the House will move as early as Wednesday to consider the impeachment resolution on the floor, just a week after the attack. Already more than 210 Democrats have signed onto the charge, just shy of a majority of the House. Several Republicans were said to be considering voting to impeach for the first time, though party leaders were opposed.​
The four-page impeachment article charges Mr. Trump with “inciting violence against the government of the United States” when he sowed bogus claims about election fraud and encouraged his supporters at a rally outside the White House to take extraordinary measures to stop the counting of electoral votes underway at the Capitol. A short time later, rioters mobbed the building, ransacking the seat of American government and killing a Capitol Police officer. (Four others also died as a result of injuries or medical emergencies on Capitol grounds.)​
Last minute changes were made late Sunday to include a reference to the 14th Amendment, the post-Civil War era addition to the Constitution that prohibits anyone who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the United States from holding future office. Lawmakers also decided to cite specific language from Mr. Trump’s speech last Wednesday, inciting the crowd, quoting him saying: “If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”​
“In all this, President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government,” the article reads. “He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of government. He thereby betrayed his trust as president, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”​
Lawmakers involved in the effort cautioned the language could still change before any House vote."​

"House Democrats formally introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump, charging him with “incitement of insurrection” for his role in the takeover of the U.S. Capitol last week by a violent pro-Trump mob. The House could vote as early as Wednesday.​
In a brief session Monday, House Republicans blocked a measure calling on Vice President Pence and the Cabinet to remove Trump under the 25th Amendment, a move that ensures a vote in the full House."​

Uh, it's not going to matter in 8 days. Morons.
Agreed, but the long term goal is to keep him from holding office again.

The Sniff Test says he reeks of Sedition and Inciting Riot, which also led to 2 deaths directly related to his actions. Not only should he be held accountable for the first two, but this Law And Order President should also be held accountable as an Accessory To Homicide.

Most than likely his soon upcoming criminal record will take care of that.

If we've learned anything from 4 years of Trump, it's that you must not trust his word. If he says he'll leave the presidency on Jan 20 without further trouble, we must take that in context with what he tried last week. I can't predict the future, but it would be unwise & dangerous to believe he'll surprise us by being a good boy next week.

Call in the National Guard and arm them. I understand that as many as 15,000 NG have been called up. Better yet, bring in the 87th Airborne and the 1st Marine Division.

The Constitution junkies have been hard at work to find another way to remove Trump from power, besides impeachment or the 25th Amendment.

Bring on the 14th Amendment, Section 3
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourteenth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution#Participants_in_rebellion

The 14th Amendment was adopted in 1868 after the Civil War. Section 3 was originally intended to prevent Confederate political leaders or army officers from holding future state or federal government positions. It prohibits the election or appointment to any federal or state office of any person who had held any of certain offices and then engaged in insurrection, rebellion, or treason. But it could be interpreted to strip power from Trump.

He is a temperamental baby who has command of the US armed forces and its nuclear weapon capability... just saying.
Plus he's never been more desperate with both time running out and adults took away his favorite toys (ie: Twitter). In fact, one could speculate that the whole reason he ran for the presidency is to gain immunity from prosecution for this past "adventures" with the law.

Puleeeze. He's had 4 years to do what he's going to do. Folks have faith in the system. We've 6 more days of this cretin and then our system will work like it does EVERY 4 years and a new president will be sworn in.

My alternate theory is he's personally entangled with some Russian Mafia and this is his way of getting a 24/7 security detail that he doesn't have to foot the bill for. How's that for a theory?

You go high enough with the Russian Mafia and you might suddenly end up with one bolding ex-KGB agent.
I have no doubt that Russians have something big on him, either massive loans, Kompromat, or likely both.

The Russian mob isn't going to do anything to Trump directly. Wacking a president is an act of war, Putin wouldn't sanction that. If they wanted to hurt Trump, they would release any compromising material they have on him.
