Hey, Republicans who supported this president - especially the ones in the joint session of Congress today - have you had enough?

I haven't verified it, but apparently if he gets impeached twice (regardless of whether he's convicted) he won't be allowed to run again. That's the only reason I can see for going ahead with an impeachment that has no chance of removing him before his term ends.

 

EDIT: I can't find anything that supports the idea that being impeached twice would prevent him from running again. Fake news I guess.

 

EDIT 2: OK, they meant the idea that he could potentially be impeached even after leaving office, and a successful conviction would prevent him from running again.

I doubt they will get a successful conviction on impeachment as it will still require a 2/3 majority in the senate. While it isn't out of the question after yesterday that 16 will cross the aisle and vote with the democrats, it is by no means certain. At least this time they will be able to set the agenda for the trial in the senate and call relevant witnesses and evidence which was blocked last time around.

Impeaching again and failing to get a conviction would be worse than doing nothing IMO.

I can see why they would want to impeach him, but he's leaving in less than a fortnight, isn't he?

He can do a huge amount of damage in a fortnight, particularly now that he's seen what he can get his worshippers to do for him, and that so far there's no consequences for him. Just having his last days tired up in impeachment proceedings would be a win.

I believe the quickest way is via the 25th Amendment. The amendment allows for the vice-president and a majority of the Cabinet to declare a president unfit for office. This would be a hell of a lot quicker than impeachment proceedings.

The difficult we can do immediately. The impossible takes a bit longer. But Miracles you will have to wait for.

"USA Today" is about was inoffensive center moderate, as it comes.

Lots of headlines about DC attempted coup. None of them good for Trump and Republicans.

USA Today: 'This was really big': Far-right extremist groups use Capitol attack to recruit new members

Wednesday’s mob insurrection at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., is unlikely to be the last violent action from far-right extremists, who may also be using the week’s extraordinary events to recruit members for a swelling coalition around outgoing president Donald Trump, according to experts on extremism.

While this week’s attack was extraordinary in it’s brazenness, it was also a wake-up call to federal and local law enforcement that threats from far-right Trump supporters should be taken very seriously over the last two weeks of Trump’s presidency and beyond, said Mary McCord, legal director at the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

“There’s a whole lot of talk about what happened in far-right extremist forums and chatrooms today, and about how the inauguration on January 20 will be the last stand and now is the time to recruit,” McCord said.

State capitols should ramp up security, much as Washington, D.C., has started to do, she said, in the expectation that Trump's followers may try to repeat this week's attack or worse.

YouGov - One in five voters - including 45% of Republicans - approve of the storming of the Capitol building

 

A YouGov Direct poll of 1,397 registered voters

 

Supporters of President Trump have stormed the US Capitol to protest lawmakers certifying Joe Biden’s election victory. 
Based on what you have read or heard about this, do you support or oppose these actions? (%)

 

 

Note the remarkably large minority of voters "unaware of the story".

The New York Times - A Riot Amid a Pandemic: Did the Virus, Too, Storm the Capitol?

 

today

 


The mob that stormed the Capitol on Wednesday did not just threaten the heart of American democracy. 

 

To scientists who watched dismayed as the scenes unfolded on television, the throngs of unmasked intruders who wandered through hallways and into private offices may also have transformed the riot into a super-spreader event.

 

The coronavirus thrives indoors, particularly in crowded spaces, lingering in the air in tiny particles called aerosols. If even a few extremists were infected - likely, given the current rates of spread and the crowd size - then the virus would have had the ideal opportunity to find new victims, experts said.

 

It has all the elements of what we warn people about,” said Anne Rimoin, an epidemiologist at the University of California, Los Angeles.

People yelling and screaming, chanting, exerting themselves - all of those things provide opportunity for the virus to spread, and this virus takes those opportunities.” ...
