The facts of the matter:
The Orange Tyrant and his minions incited a violent mob to attack the Capitol.
This was an attempted coup d’état.
Republicans are whining that impeachment will divide the nation.
Where were they the last four years?
- The Republican clown car attempted to overturn a lawful election in congress, this was by far their biggest attempt at voter suppression yet.
- They want the country to move on from their collective sedition? I bet they do.
- His tenure is nearly over so let’s move on.
- So we now pardon freely High Crimes and Misdemeanors in the US? Really?
Imagine if Obama had dared do such a thing.
The real reason is that they are frightened for their own skins.
- Republicans have not even the semblance of honor.
- Republicans have no sense of accountability, especially their own.
- What they fear for is their own political careers.
- They are still scared shitless of his base, that they help create over the last 50 years.
- They fear their own culpability in this sedition.
- The Pentagon denied multiple requests to send National Guard during Capitol siege, GOP governor says
Outgoing Capitol Police chief Steven Sund said efforts to deploy the National Guard over last Wednesday's riots were hampered by the Pentagon and House and Senate security officials, according to an interview with the Washington Post published late Sunday.
Why it matters: Sund, who resigned over the violence, told WashPost his requests for Guard help were “rejected or delayed” six times in total — including before the Capitol Hill protest and ensuing violence began.
Sedition cannot go unpunished.
All those responsible must be held to account.
If not, it will happen again and again.
Impeach the President and invoke the 14th amendment for the rest.
Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
