    1. Another point of truth while all this is going on we forgotten about Joe Biden lied while campaign in Georgia for Senator Jon Ossoff and Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock about Americans receiving immediately $2,000 relief checks.

  1. republicans: “You can’t impeach someone after they are out of office.”
    Also republicans: “We will not allow the impeachment trial until after inauguration.”

    1. while all this is going we forgotten about Joe Biden lied while campaign in Georgia for Senator Jon Ossoff and Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock about Americans receiving immediately $2,000 relief checks.

    2. @smart knucklehead he didn’t lie. The man inherited a complete mess from frump. He haven’t elven started ro get his foot on solid ground. It didn’t take a day ro get here so give him a little bit of time, ok. Can you do that?

  2. 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.

    1. As I remember, trump – when asked if he would concede if he lost – he said something like: “of course I will … you know I will ..” to the reporters asking the question. Then proceeded to to say that “we will see …”

  3. At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Benjamin Franklin was asked a question as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation. In the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Convention, a lady asked Dr. Franklin: “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”

    Benjamin Franklin replied: “A republic….if you can keep it.”

    On January 6, Trump told the American people that we can no longer keep it.

  4. I think it would be quite healing if there was a strong bipartisan vote to convict… vs. Senators, like Lyndsey Graham, who perpetuate the division with their rhetoric and continued displays of loyalty to Trump. The power to heal lies in acts of Bipartisan unity that put Trump on notice that he is no longer relevant, as well delivering a strong cohesive resolve that such violence will not be tolerated!

  5. If the tRuth doesn’t come out in Donald tRumps 2nd Impeachment then just Impeach him again and again till something sticks! Georgia election deserves another kick at the Impeachment can!

    1. Another point of truth while all this is going on we forgotten about Joe Biden lied while campaign in Georgia for Senator Jon Ossoff and Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock about Americans receiving immediately $2,000 relief checks.

  6. I keep hearing that it is unlikely that 17 republicans senators will join with democrats but I would like to point out that there are 20 republican senators up for reelection in 2022. Those senators have a choice now they can continue to be walked like dogs by Trump and his base or they can bite Trump now and show that they have some dignity for themselves and the jobs they currently have. Personally for all the insults Trump said about Ted Cruz I’d love to see Cruz vote to convict Trump and dedicate his vote to his wife and father.

  7. We will NEVER forget. My children will know where I stood and when I tell them this tale, they will know TRUTH was alive and breathing outside of our disgraced electors

  8. I can’t believe some of them are turning away from the film?!?!?! Come on people its what your leader told them to do. How dare they!

  9. Booker has it right: we all need to be taking names… and doling out shame. The conventional wisdom is that Trump would lose in a secret ballot. But it’s not only about him; it’s also about his enablers. No one averting his/her gaze will get out of this unscathed. History has a way of ripping evil from its moorings.

  10. Truth can only come out if this time you insist on witnesses, which Republicans blocked in the last impeachment.
