  1. allowing this…
    will only encourage it again in the future…
    the GOP must stop acting…
    like a sad parody of it’s self…

    1. Not only will it encourage it in the future, it’s going to embolden Trump to be even worse! Look what happened after he was acquitted the first time! If he’s allowed to run again he will especially if acquitted just for payback and if he’s not in prison for something everyone should be petrified!

    2. They’ve been this way since at least Ronnie Raygun.
      Unless you’re on* of the 1%, you’re shooting yourself in the foot if you throw your vote away on any of them.
      Edited for typo: one*

    1. IT IS CALL RICO THE US SENATE MAKES IT’S OWN RULES AND NOT SO MUCH LAWS THAT THEY HAVE TO ABIDE BY AND THEY PROTECT EACH OTHER TO STAY IN POWER SIX YEARS AT A TIME INCUMBENT ARE TOUGH TO REMOVE GOP ARE MAP GERRYMANDERED, YOU CAN OUTNUMBER THEM AT THE POLL BUT THEY GET MORE REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS WHILE THE REPUBLICANS GET MORE IN THE HOUSE AND STILL THE SAME IN THE SENATE AND ALL ARE CORPORATE WHORES!!!!!!!!!

    1. @TheBase1aransas You wouldn’t get a proper game of rock, paper, scissors out of that orange slob and moron. 10 steps, he needs ten fingers to drink a glass of water and still can’t do it. F*cking magats.

    1. @Gabe Nair Too bad for them. If I didn’t do my job, I wouldn’t have one. Feeling sorry for them is ridiculous.

    2. Yes, you are right and these DEPLORABLES have SWORN their OATH to ONE VILE MAN that has RADICALIZED THEM INTO TRUMP’S CULT……. THIS IS HOW HITLER CAME TO POWER….

    3. @Trump Reelected2024 YOU HAVE BEEN RADICALIZED BY THIS CONMAN TO BECOME A TRAITOR TO DEMOCRACY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!! WAKE UP LITTLE SHEEP FROM YOUR SLUMBER SLEEP…..

    4. @William HI KNOW THAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT TRUMPY’S FAKE REPUBLICAN PARTY. TRUMP DID ALL THIS FOR THE AUDIENCE OF ONE WHICH IS HIS RUSSIAN MASTER PUTIN!!!!!!

  2. For every Republican that votes for an acquittal, needs to be disqualified and forever voted from winning ANY public offices in the future. The stain of their betrayal shall forever be remembered for generations to come.

    1. @Just Me Everybody needs to call, email whatever. This is just crazy and can’t be just forgotten. Because they won’t forget how easy it was to get away with the first time, when they decide to do it again.
      A failed coup without consequences, is just the rehearsal.

    2. @Connie Aitken I must agree with you Connie. That voting along party lines is not representing the people. Voters should not forget.

  3. Do these republicans realize people saw it live On January 6 2021..millions of us. They need to do their job.

    1. Yes I witnessed it on tv. Saw Trump heard his speech then on youtube eyewitness on Fox business news on the Senate floor listening to speeches about the count when they were stopped by attack. Saw the guns was with the reporter crawling out heard the gunshots, saw no police, saw gas…worried the young woman reporter might not escape!

  4. In Myanmar the people are fighting for democracy and in the United States people fought for a dictatorship. The majority of the Republican Party was complicit.

    1. @cx23
      Whilst China is lifting millions of it’s people out of poverty!
      Millions of Americans are just now finding out how it feels to be forced into poverty, by their own Far Right Fascist Republikan Party, and their leader the wannabe Dicktater X-President Traitorous tRump!

  5. Message should be clear. Vote every last senator and state representative out that looks past this act of treason!

    1. EVERY G.O.P SPINELESS SENATOR WHO DOESN’T VOTE TO FIND TRUMP GUILTY BEYOND REFUTE, SHOULD BE FIRED IMMEDIATELY IF NOT SOONER RIGHT WHERE THEY STAND OR SIT!! How much more Tangible irrefutable evidence do they need folks!!??? The Remants of the carnage is STILL everywhere u look in the Capitol building and! !t’s doing nothing more than Giving a Green light for this disgraceful conduct to DEFINITELY RECUR IN THE FUTURE AT SOME TIME!! NOT BIDEN NOR HARRIS!! BUT!! IFFF he’s not in prison where he belongs, and Trump DOES get in again in 4 year’s time??? we might as well just pay a demolition crew to smash the place again to save Trumps lunatic ‘Patriots’ to destroy the Capitol building alllll over again when the GOPS, get beaten AGAIN IN 2024!! How on Earth is it being Patriotic to destroy our democracy and everything else the entire world admires us for!!??? we WERE the strongest Democracy on the Planet, the entire world admired, and were envious of our once great and beautiful Democracy…2ND TO ABSOLUTELY NO ONE!! Especially our long time Allies such as Australia and The U.K AND!! So very many others who envied US, ever since our Founding fathers set things up for all of us, We became 50 states with Hawaii and Alaska folks!! We’ve got wonderful Allies in Canada too, Which when handled properly as just about every one of our past potus’s have done by and large, even though they’re under the Monarchy no different than Australia and the U.K. Between us all we work together like a well oiled machine folks!! We’ve ALL STOOD shoulder to shoulder with 1 another in the Trenches In every war since ww1 and 2!! AND some Before that too. I know they’ll still Do the same thing again for and with us too, make no mistake!!!! even though Trump DID everything he could to Alienate our wonderful Allies!! The only Allies I can think of he didn’t Alienate us from is Australia. We have always Done a staggering trade with Australia which WE benefit from by far the most!! But Australia does well out of and from our Alliance!! I’m only mentioning the Australians, as Trump told us every other 1,of our Allies weren’t paying their way/fair share!! which couldn’t have been further from the TRUTH!! it was ww, but signed off In Australia by ALL our Allies when the Trans Pacific partnership was introduced!! WHICH WE had the most to gain from by light years!! BUT!! It was 1,of the first things and agreements Trump tore up!! AND all and ONLY BECAUSE OBAMA signed off on it who, before day 1 Trump has been insanely jealous of!! Had say Bush, or another GOP signed off on it? Trump would’ve just left it alone!! AND within a week!! Trump was on ww tv waving a pce of paper around, with ‘Proof Obama was born In AFRICA!!’ Ironically, he was not only born in the same Hospital in Hawaii as ME!! Our cribs were next to 1 another In the hospital Nursery of which mom left me 27 photographs of!! I just hope and pray that enough GOPS vote to Impeach and find Trump guilty like the vast majority of us do!! BUT!! ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS LOSING THEIR JOBS!! Even though the majority of them r of were Drs, Attorneys and the like, Hence they’d have zero trouble finding another very highly paid job, post being fired or resigning due to their human decency!! BUT!! I just know that they won’t folks sadly!!! ABSENCE OF HAVING DECENCY AND A SPINE!!

    1. Yes. And despite Pence’s infuriation about what happened, he would keep his loyalty to Putin and not bear witness against Trump. 😮

    2. I’d bet most of those Republicans are afraid of death threats, Trump Supporters have threaten politicians in the past, poll workers, they plotted to kidnap the Michigan Governor.

  6. This is being played out to international audiences. A president of the USA was responsible for this terror attack, FULL STOP!!

    1. @Ted Turnner
      They weren’t trying to murder the government and they were harshly treated, beaten and pepper sprayed whether they were violent or not. The fact they were black and seeking justice is what separates them from you, the insurrectionists and you racist wannabe oligarch narcissist corrupt ex president. There’s a difference between rioters, lawbreakers and insurrectionist fascists like you. Like it or not, BLM and good guys will win and your side is going down. The veil is being lifted from the eyes of the people. You’re going down. America belongs to all of us and not you. Enjoy your opiods and meth. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAA. (sign that felt good) Enjoy the day.

    2. ​@Ted Turnner This is a case involving a person who was POTUS at the time of the Capitol insurrection. Try looking at the impeachment trial objectively, based purely on the evidence as presented by both sides, rather than falling back on the standard right-wing “whataboutism” whenever Trump is accused of wrongdoing.

  7. If Mike Pence wasn’t a coward, he’d publicly state the Republican senators should convict the man who incited insurrectionists to seek his assassination.

  8. Stacey Plaskett is singularly impressive. THAT is how you speak truth to power! Thank you Mrs. Delegate, thank you.

    1. All the personnel shifts performed in December and early January, at key positions in the Pentagon and his cabinet was the tip off that the fix was in. The fact that @45 called for a rally, in DC, on January for the 6th was the other. After a whole term of promoting divisive actions, and ignoring COVID 19’s spread – even after he caught it; what occurred at his dog whistled event is also no surprise.

      The man can not take that he was soundly trashed during the election. His poor Ego could not taken it. He had to lash out. He had to sure us that he was still in charge—by fermenting an Insurrection like no other since the War of 1812.

      In spite of the evidence presented, I still hang on to my fearless prediction: @45 WILL NOT BE FOUND GUILTY.

      That is how screwed up our current Congress is: The House which represent all American, the Senate full of men over 70 and with attitudes formed during their stone-aged, non-black and Native American and other immigrants whose contributions to the our country’s stature. People, unless we get new faces, younger faces in Congress – and some women and people of color as well; nothing will change. The GOP is the QGOP/Right Wing Party. They have no balls and now courage to do the fight them. I am not a Bot, and I vote. I am out.

  9. He attacked the critical parts of the election process. Then, he attacked the critical parts of the certification process. When that failed he attacked the critical individuals designated to confirm the certifications. Such a VILE, DESPICABLE, DIABOLICAL individual. Must CONVICT either by Senate or by Legal System. Or BOTH.

  10. Cruz, Hawley, Graham & others are not even pretending to listen to trial.
    They should RESIGN for failing Oath to uphold Constitution

    1. They should take away there wages as senators.. not doing their jobs for the American people .. so disrespectful …shame on them all…

    2. Absolutely. Any Senator that doesn’t vote to convict should be expelled for not upholding their oath to defend the U.S..

  11. Not sure why he is’t charged with treason , this country needs these laws that he broke put upon him n sent him to prison .

    1. Unfortunately legal barrier to prove treason requires a proof of direct involvement of foreign powers. It’s a really high bar to clear. Since the Mueller report does not make the connection, it would be nearly impossible to charge him with treason.
      That’s why the language used here is insurrection.

    1. You mean to convict. The impeachment already happened and attached to him for life and history. Impeached twice.

    2. FORCED TO RESIGN GOP SENATORS SORRY YOUR SIX YEAR TERM IS UP TRAITOR AND DON’T TRY TO RUN FOR ANYTHING ELSE MOVE OUT OF THE COUNTRY NOW!!!!!
