  1. What’s thw point??? Half of that room are accomplices, operarion managers and doormen to 18 U.S. Code § 2331. Section 5. the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that—
    (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;
    (B) appear to be intended—
    (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
    (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
    (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and
    (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

  2. Insurrection TIME LINE:
    September 23, 2020: In response to a direct question, Trump refuses to say he will ensure a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election.

     “Well,we’re going to have to see what happens.” He further raises alarms about a potential transition of power: “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.” 

    September 29, 2020: First Presidential Debate.
    when asked to condemn white suprema.cist mili.tias like the Proud Boys, Trump tells them to “Stand back and stand by,”

    November 13, 2020:
    In the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, Trump’s allies spearhead a media campaign and a call to action of Trump supporters.

    “This is as serious a constitutional crisis as our nation has ever faced. We will only be the beacon of hope for the world if we are willing to stand with courage and integrity & defend our republic,” Mike Flynn tweets.
    Sidney Powell echos the statements, saying in an interview that “This is essentially a new American revolution. And anyone who wants this country to remain free needs to step up right now.” 

    December 2, 2020: Viol.ent rhetoric by Trump’s allies continues as the Georgia Senate runoff race nears. 

    “We’re going to sla.y Goliath, the comm.unists, the liberals, the phonies. Joe Biden will never set foot in the Oval Office of this country. It will not happen on our watch. Never gonna happen,” Lin Wood claims at the Stop the Steal Rally in Alpharetta, Georgia.

    December 8, 2020: The official Twitter account of the Arizona GOP asks supporters whether they are willing to “d.l.e” for Trump.

    In response to a Stop the Steal tweet saying “I am willing to give my life for this fight,” the Arizona GOP tweets, “He is. Are you?” The GOP account also tweets a clip of the 2008 movie “Rambo,” as the character proclaims, “This is what we do, who we are. Live for nothing, or d.l.e for something.” 

    19 December 2020 – Be there, will be wild:
    At 1.42am in the early hours of 19 December Trump tweeted the lie that it was “statistically impossible” for him to have lost the presidential election. He gave his first notice of a “big protest in DC” on 6 January. “Be there, will be wild!” he said.

    19 December – The cavalry is coming:
    Within hours, fervent Trump supporters began to heed Trump’s rallying cry. Kylie Jane Kremer, founder of a Stop the Steal group banned by FB, picked up the notice about the march and ran with it. “The calvary is coming, Mr President!” she said.

    Trump retweeted Kremer’s post, saying: “A great honor!”

    1 January 2021 – You got to go to the streets and be vio.lent:
    Louie Gohmert responded in inflammatory terms to news that his federal lawsuit seeking to force Mike Pence to block certification of Biden’s victory had been dismissed.

    “The bottom line is, the court is saying, ‘We’re not going to touch this. You have no remedy’,” he told News.max. “Basically, in effect, the ruling would be that you got to go to the streets and be as vio.lent as An.tifa.”

    3 January– We will not go quietly into the night:
    Ted Cruz addressed a rally in Georgia. “We will not go quietly into the night. We will defend liberty. And we are going to win.”

    6 January – We’re coming for you:
    Don Jr, appeared as the warm-up carney act at the “Save America Rally” on the National Mall. He threatened the Republicans who, as he spoke, were preparing to vote on certifying the election result.

    “The people who did nothing to stop the steal. This gathering should send a message to them: This isn’t their Republican party any more. This is Donald Trump’s.”
    Then Don jr. said: “If you’re gonna be the zero and not the hero, we’re coming for you and we’re going to have a good time doing it!”

    6 January – Trial by combat:
    Rudy Giuliani, who has been a leading proponent of the falsehood that the election was fraudulently rigged, addressed the rally.

    “If we’re wrong, we will be made fo.ols of,” he said. “But if we’re right, a lot of them will go to jail. So let’s have trial by combat!!!!”

    6 January – We will not take it any more:
    Trump then addressed the crowd just outside the White House for more than an hour, urging them to march on the Capitol building. “We will not take it any more,” he said.

    “You’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong … I know everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building.”
    The crowd followed his instructions and began marching on the Capitol.

    A USA Today analysis discovered that After Trump used the word “MARCH” one Parlor user wrote: “Time to fight. The civil war is upon us.” And another Parlor user said: “We are going to have a civil war. Get ready!!”

    The analysis by USA Today also found that the use of the phrase “civil war” increased nearly four times during Trump’s speech, as it was used on 156 separate occasions while he spoke.

  3. Though you presented a very compelling case. The republicans spent there time ignoring it bc there mind is already made up. Unfortunately true. It’s sad that they forgot that “we the people” voted them to office. All they care about is trump. I will predict this though. Their choice will come back to roost when they come up for election. Never have I been more embarrassed by the behavior (reps).

    1. Basically, Republicans are kicking the can of accountability for Trumpism down the road. Make them pay at the ballot box. They’re supporting the blatant aversion of democratic process by denying the will of the people. Trumps on tape suggesting Georgia find votes to secure a win for him. Open & shut case, he’s guilty.

    2. They know we the people voted them in because when people suggested that Marjorie Greene would be better off not working in Congress, the first thing Republicans said was that Greene was elected.

  4. Republican seditionists cite the Constitution as requiring impeachment while the president is in office. He was impeached while in office and no provision of the Constitution requires that the trial be conducted while he is in office.

  5. 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

  6. You know the government of this country is broken when Cruz and Hawley, coconspirators are allowed to remain on the senate jury to decide impeachment. They both have to gain if Trump is not convicted.

    1. I really like that you understand my sarcasm because it’s in an advanced form and not everyone gets it.

    1. @frog mann
      Thanks for showing us how much of Donald’s kool aid you’ve ingested. Hopefully the effects will fade soon and you’ll be able to think rationally and independently again.

    1. I’m so glad I’m not the only one to wonder why the vice president had to run from his supporters. I mean Pence bent over for 4 years so he must be irritated to discover his loyalty wasn’t enough for Donald.

    1. He should be in prison anybody else would be jailed think about if martin Luther king Jr would have done anything close to that.. They killed him for helping civil rights movement

    2. So bring on the criminal trial…but do yourself a favor and study the Brandenburg decision first… you are pinning your hopes on a dead horse. Stop listening to only one side, grow up and realize their is more than leftist propaganda

  7. Say an employee gets caught stealing from the company, but quits before they get fired. Does that mean they should be eligible for re-hire?

    Remember when Bush got into trouble for saying “Bring ’em on” in reference to terrorists? He was just exercising free speech, right?

    The last thing Democrats, especially Biden, wanted to be doing in the first weeks of the new administration was to be impeaching the guy who they finally got rid of. It was not good for Dems politically. Ethics and accountability dictated that they had to impeach him. If Republicans had any ethics or desire for accountability, they wouldn’t be making that stupid argument that Dems love to hate him so much that they can’t let him go.

    Yes, many Dems hated him and wanted to impeach him on day one – FOR GOOD REASONS. Look what he did in office. He had zero government experience, but didn’t even care about learning the job. He lied, divided, and screwed-up everything he did. He raised valid concerns that he was breaking the law in concert with foreign adversaries. He wouldn’t let a single day go by without doing something controversial and outrageous.

    This has been simple from the beginning: If Obama had done and said the exact same things Trump did and said, Republicans would have responded the same way Dems have. I am absolutely sure of that.

  8. Hitler attempted a coup and failed the German government then did not take the steps necessary to prevent him from a politician come back and the result were tragic

  9. The whole farce predetermined impeachment process just exposes how ludicrous many of USA’s systems of governance truly are.
    Letting politicians sit in judgement on their own behaviour, what could go wrong? It’s pathetic.
