    1. @reveivl will you be surprised if Trump’s defense team self destructs tomorrow? They couldn’t even spell “United States” correctly. They might end up helping the Dems…

    2. All of the Republican Senators who will vote to acquit Trump are idiots. If there is one more MAGA extremist riot, those on record still supporting that nonsense will lose their re-election bids. Trump won’t be there to abuse his power to cover things up and spin it as a Democrat/media “hoax.” Over the next few years, the news will be peppered with reports of Trump and his cronies’ legal troubles. Enjoy the brief remainder of your political careers, morons.

    3. Republicans censured Liz Cheney for voting to impeach Trump. They basically said that, even though House Republicans were being asked to vote one of two ways, they had to vote one way or else they’d be in trouble.

      Is there anything less democratic than that?

      That’s what they do in Russia and North Korea. They have elections, but voters have to vote one way or else. Do Republicans really not understand that?

    1. GOP SENATE AND GOP CONGRESS IS BROKEN, ON LIFE SUPPORT. THEY WILL NEVER STAND UP (THEY WILL PROUDLY STAND BACK) ON ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT PUTS AMERICA FIRST, THE UNITED STATES MILITARY FIRST, UNITED STATES NATIONAL SECURITY FIRST, THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION FIRST, UNITED STATES RULE OF LAW FIRST…GOP PARTY IS THE PARTY OF OF SILENCE- AGAINST ALL THAT THE GREAT UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN IS BASED UPON.
      GOP PARTY IS THE STAND BY AND STAND PROUD PARTY THAT TO DOES NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO HELP ALL GREAT AMERICANS. IT ONLY CARES ABOUT THEIR OWN POWER AND MONEY. #GOPCANCEROFAMERICA

  1. When referring to anyone who votes to acquit DT, add Mudd to their name:
    Mudd Cruz, Mudd Hawley, Mudd Graham, Mudd Lee, Mudd Rubio, etc

    1. My birth great great grandfather is Dr. Samuel Mudd. They really hate that saying b/c not all Mudd s are liars. However, the ones I met love the saying, ‘Here’s mud in your eye.’ b/c they want to show their sense of humor. I’m adopted & wasn’t raised in the family. I met some of them after a successful search. Good people but pretty sensitive regarding Dr. Mudd.

    1. I have seen the video of the staging of the ”insurrection”.
      The players were actors and everything was staged managed.
      The woman supposedly shot was an actress and the blood was fake.
      All was fake to be used in the impeachment.

      Anyone that defends the 2020 election as legitimate is either a moron or a traitor to the Republic.
      Trump won in a landslide.
      Biden is not the president.

      The police officer did not die on the hill.
      He texted his brother 24 hours after he was supposed to be dead.
      Then he supposedly died of a ”stroke” which was the CIA murdering him to stop him from talking and as a lesson to others.
      His body was cremated straight after his death……. before anyone could conduct an autopsy.

  2. Open and Shut Case….Open in the sense we all watches it happen…Shut is what the Republican eye and ears are!!! We will remember who you are whom will let trump go free. Boycott businesses that support Republicans!!!

  3. Wake up! We are going to see more cowardice in the impeach hearing than we had in all of Vietnam, Korea or WWII! Truly pitiful!

  4. That’s A LOT of blood on Trump’s tiny hands.
    Somebody throw him a bunch of paper towels…he’s gonna need ’em.

    2. @Antonio saxon Everything Wrong with the Capitol Shooting Jan 6, 2021 in 21 minutes

      Go to GAB tv and put in the above Caption and view the video.
      Youtube blocks the link every time I try to post it.

    3. @HS ok so nobody died and everyone is being tricked? thats your logic? is the earth flat too? are lizard people coming out of the earth to feed on our brains? does your brain work?

    4. @theresaI wright I concur with your assessment of HS’s claims. To each their own, and all that jazz, but I prefer to exist and function in a little place I like to call “reality”. A place where the earth is not flat, where covid is real, where masks do work, where we did go to the moon, where Trump was the most corrupt and least competent president ever, where truth is truth, where Trump’s father wasn’t born in Germany, where Mexico didn’t, isn’t, and won’t build the wall, where windmills don’t cause cancer, where Trump is not 6’3″ and doesn’t weigh 239lbs, where Trump did use a Sharpie to alter an official weather map, where QAnon is nothing more than a bunch of QAnonsense, where Biden won the election and Trump lost, where Trump incited HIS SUPPORTERS in violent insurrection that left 7 dead in it’s wake, etc.
      I’m proud to base my thoughts and opinions on facts and evidence, and to have never been gaslighted by The Lyin’ King Donald Trump. It’s not always pretty and sometimes we have to accept things we don’t like, but it’s real life and that’s what rational adults do. I guard against getting stuck in an echo chamber by seeking out information from several sources across the political spectrum, and taking the time to filter through it before developing an opinion on people and events.
      Conspiracy theories can be entertaining and fun to learn about, but it’s important to keep yourself grounded so you don’t end up sounding like a nut job when interacting with other people. But again, to each their own.

      Take care, my friend, and stay safe out there!

    5. @mikey j Youtube is blocking the link to the video, go to GAB TV and look up ”21 minutes of what is wrong with the insurrection”….then make up your own mine.

  5. On January 6, Trump falsely maintained that Pence had the ability to unilaterally change the election result. Pence rebuked Trump’s false  claims in an 11-page letter sent to Trump  just before his “stop the steal” rally and riot.

    “It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not. Vesting the Vice President with unilateral authority to decide presidential contests would be entirely antithetical to the system of check and balances between branches of the government designed by the framers of the Constitution,” Pence wrote.

    And like the wannabe tyrant that he is, Trump replied by blasting Pence for his action less than two hours later.

    “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify,” Trump wrote in a tweet.

    Trump’s tweet came as protesters backing him stormed the Capitol.

    1. Trump once again proved that he does not know anything about the Constitution of the United States. He violated his oath to uphold the Constitution on the day of his inauguration and has not stopped since. He is an autocrat who has no use for sharing power with the other branches of government. He had no executive board when he was destroying his businesses, leading to 6 bankruptcies, and he believes that he should be the absolute ruler as president. This arrogance has led to division within the country, encouraged hatred of those with whom he disagrees, and has a cult following that has shown him total loyalty. Electing Trump was the worst mistake the voters of the country have ever made. Indeed, he failed to win the popular vote. His claim that the results of the popular vote was fraudulent should have given a hint as to how he would behave if he lost (which he legitimately did). The country barely survived a maniac like Trump. If we are not careful, we may not be so lucky the next time.

  6. “If Donald Trump didn’t exist…”
    Ahhhhhh, I feel so much better. Please say it again..
    “If Donald Trump didn’t exist…”
    Wow, it’s even better the second time.

    1. I have seen the video of the staging of the ”insurrection”.
      The players were actors and everything was staged managed.
      The woman supposedly shot was an actress and the blood was fake.
      All was fake to be used in the impeachment.

      Anyone that defends the 2020 election as legitimate is either a moron or a traitor to the Republic.
      Trump won in a landslide.
      Biden is not the president.

    2. @HS . Put down your meth pipe, take your meds. CLEARLY there is something wrong with you. Did you ride the short bus?? Too much ACID?? Willfully ignorant?
      You’re nothing but LAUGHABLE!!

    3. @MamaKat no it doesn’t…because I know what is ”really” going on……do you?

    4. @HS What a load of garbage, which you offer ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE FOR! Are we just supposed to believe what you say??

  7. I don’t know what’s more frightening; Trump running again and winning, or Trump running again and losing.

    Convicting and disqualifying him from running again is one way our Senators could act to keep our country safe. At this point you’re either with Trump or America; can’t be both.

    1. If they don’t indict him and he can run again in 2024, should he run as an independent candidate, he may break apart Republican vote, allowing for an easy Democrat win… Assuming Democrats don’t grow complacent.

    2. @SmileMan64 aka BenjaMan64 His supporters keep talking about forming a new party; MAGA party. So if they do, and he runs as a MAGA not a Republican, I think there’s a good chance what you said could happen. Who knows what the future may hold for us.

  8. After the attack DJT issued a Tweet: “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long.” This proves he intended the insurrection and is unrepentant for the deaths, injuries and damage he caused. He should be tried together with the other insurrectionist in federal court, charged with seditious conspiracy, insurrection, conspiracy against rights, violation of civil liberties under color of law and felony murder pursuant to: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2385 https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2384 https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2383 https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/241 https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/242 https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/610 https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/595 https://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?req=(title:52%20section:10307%20edition:prelim) https://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?req=(title:52%20section:20511%20edition:prelim) https://www.justia.com/criminal/offenses/homicide/felony-murder/ . Once convicted for insurrection, the 14th Amendment automatically applies: https://constitution.congress.gov/browse/amendment-14/section-3/

    1. GOP SENATE AND GOP CONGRESS IS BROKEN, ON LIFE SUPPORT. THEY WILL NEVER STAND UP (THEY WILL PROUDLY STAND BACK) ON ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT PUTS AMERICA FIRST, THE UNITED STATES MILITARY FIRST, UNITED STATES NATIONAL SECURITY FIRST, THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION FIRST, UNITED STATES RULE OF LAW FIRST…GOP PARTY IS THE PARTY OF OF SILENCE- AGAINST ALL THAT THE GREAT UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN IS BASED UPON.

  9. “It’s been shut since the very first day” that is why the House proceeded as they did to get the Impeachment over to the Senate, for the sake of the Nation’s well being. Moscow Mitch ignored the obvious signs, as he cared for only his about his own position in the Senate.

  10. AMERICA WILL BE STAINED FOREVER AFTER THE GOP SENATE AQUITS TRUMP…. WELCOME TO THE REPUBLIC OF USSA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. “I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad,” —Donald Trump, March 2019

    1. NO. He alone revealed the truth of America to the world. Before Trump was a fairytale of democratic decency. Trump et al revealed the truth of a racist, violent, corrupt, selfish and fake democracy with fake Christianity everywhere. Loraser of the free world, no more. Never again. Shithole has shown its true colours.
