TRUMP IMPEACHED FOR ‘INCITING’ US CAPITOL RIOTS
13 January 2021


The US House of Representatives has impeached President Donald Trump for "incitement of insurrection" at last week's Capitol riot.

He is the first president in US history to be twice impeached - to be charged with crimes by Congress.

Mr Trump, a Republican, will now face a trial in the Senate, where if convicted he could face being barred from ever holding office again.

The impeachment measure passed largely along party lines.

Mr Trump is due to leave office on 20 January, following his election defeat last November to Democrat Joe Biden.

After several hours of impassioned debate on Wednesday, the Democratic-controlled House voted.

Six Republicans said beforehand they would side with Democrats to impeach the president. But the majority of conservatives remained loyal to Mr Trump.”

America gave Trump his eviction notice on 11/3/20, and now he’s the only president in U.S. history to be impeached twice.

Why did Pence cave in ? It´s because of Trump that his life was in danger and people wanted him dead. Does that guy have a backbone at all?

Pence is a spineless coward who is too afraid to stand up to Trump.

I think he’s afraid of Trumpers that threatened him, and probably doesn’t want to put himself and family in more danger. I also think some repubs wanted to vote to impeach trump, but again many of them have received threats, and fear trump will try to destroy their career, if they run for another term. I’m sure trump is bitter right now and fuming over this 2nd impeachment.

Political expedience. The GOP base retains a large number of people that do not believe their people were responsible for the failed coup attempt, do not believe that the coup leader is responsible for it or do not believe that the coup attempt was more than a "scary brief event" of less significance than other recent protests.

.

Pence needs to look to the future and limit the damage to the party and the divisions within it. Especially how this division between the moderates more scared of "socialism" and the hard line racists, nationalist, fascists, Christian far-right, anti-government far-right and the gun lobby has been widened by the coup leader as President during his term and since he lost the election, especially on the 6th January. Pence is concerned that disaffecting the coup leader's base will see his party in opposition for another 2 terms because at the end of these terms they will have out of government for 16 of the previous 20 years.

Trump should be ashamed and embarrassed,but he’s too dumb to realize the gravity of this situation and how he will be viewed many years from now.

As I said I have seen several big lawyers say they may not even be able to hold the trial. And even if they do it will be hard to get 17ish republicans to agree with conviction. And then the fact that most if not all of the trial would be after he was out of office and YES there was a case of this before but that person was acquitted and as far as I know did not challenged it. And it is not a legal or citable precedent as it was not challenged and it ended in an acquittal. And Trump can and likly will sue to stop it as soon as he leaves office.

I say now that even if he is convited it will be overturned...But he will not be convicted. I am not sure they will even hold the trial.

So you can stop kissing his ass now.

I have a lot of respect for Liz Cheney.She is one of the few Republicans who has never been afraid of Trump.When he fucks up (which is frequently),she rightfully condemns him.She puts the country before her party.

Some of these wimpy Republicans wanted to censure Trump,but a censure ain’t worth nothing.Being impeached is a bigger stain on Trump’s legacy.It hurts much more.

I see. Thanks a lot for summing it up so nicely.

We have seen how many of the claims by lawyers expressing views in favour of the coup leader have turned out.

.

You keep on making the same mistake - there is both no method of challenging an impeachment judgement and no requirement that legal precedent can only be determined by a legal challenge or a guilty verdict. On the contrary, the courts have decided that they cannot act on an impeachment decision.

.

Whether the Senate chooses to decide to hear the case and what part any other court can play is not decided how you think it is.

The coup leader has twice been charged with sets of charges for actual crimes - the incitement to violence in a failed coup attempt that attempted to overturn an election result, killed 5 people, injured many others where this could have been much worse with the personal threat to Pence specifically and all the members of Congress is much more serious than perjury in regard to a personal affair. Both were charged with obstruction.

Yeah,they are big hypocrites.

IMO,inciting a deadly riot is a much more serious crime than lying about a blowjob.
