House Speaker gave President Donald Trump an ultimatum to either step down from office or face a second impeachment from House Democrats.
Democrats said they would charge President Donald Trump on Monday with incitement of insurrection in one article of impeachment over the rioting at the U.S. Capitol.
“Today, the House Democratic Caucus had an hours-long conversation that was sad, moving and patriotic. It was a conversation unlike any other, because it followed an action unlike any other,” said Pelosi in a statement on Friday.
“It is the hope of Members that the President will immediately resign,” she added. “But if he does not, I have instructed the Rules Committee to be prepared to move forward with Congressman Jamie Raskin’s 25th Amendment legislation and a motion for impeachment.”
Fox News reported that the impeachment article had 131 co-sponsors sign on.
Critics of the president say that he incited the violence by showing up at the demonstration and speaking to the protesters hours before some of them marched to Congress and forced their way in.
Others have defended the president and argued that his encouragement of the protest against the certification of the election results were disconnected from the subsequent attack on Congress to stop the certification.
The attack on the US Capitol from pro-Trump rioters left 5 dead, including one woman who was shot by Capitol Police, three who died from other medical incidents, and a policeman who was died from injuries from the attack.
Democrats are likely to succeed in voting to impeach the president in the House of Representatives, where they have a majority, but it would be up the Senate to conduct a trial and vote to remove him or not. The Senate is controlled by the Republicans.
Trump has agreed to the transition process which should culminate in the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20.
Trump to claim he is ‘presumptive 2024 nominee,’ leader of GOP in CPAC speech: report
Former president Donald Trump will claim he is the leader of the Republican party and its “presumptive 2024 nominee” when he makes his first public appearance since leaving office during the Conservative Political Action Conference next weekend in Orlando, according to a report.
A longtime Trump adviser told Axios his CPAC speech will be a “show of force,” and said the message will be: “I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I’m still in charge.” The source reportedly added that “payback is his chief obsession.”
Trump’s advisers will reportedly meet with him at Mar-a-Lago this week to plan his next political moves, and to set up the framework for kingmaking in the 2022 midterm elections.
According to Axios, Trump is expected to go after the 10 House Republicans who voted to convict him in his impeachment trial, spurred by the Jan. 6 riot at the U. S. Capitol, and the seven GOP Senators who voted with Democrats to convict.
Trump was acquitted, with 57 senators voting for his conviction — short of the required two-thirds majority — and 43 voting against conviction.
He also reportedly plans to argue in the CPAC speech that many of his predictions about President Biden have already come true.
“Trump effectively is the Republican Party,” Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told Fox News. “The only chasm is between Beltway insiders and grassroots Republicans around the country. When you attack President Trump, you’re attacking the Republican grassroots.”
Trump has found support from state Republican officials who censured some members of Congress who voted against him. Meanwhile, his leadership PAC, Save America, has $75 million on hand to help set up primary challenges to sitting Republicans who went against him, as well as a database of tens of millions of names.
A Suffolk University/ USA Today poll found that 46% of Trump supporters would abandon the Republican Party and join a Trump party should he decide to create one, versus 27% who would stay with the GOP.
Half of the individuals polled said the Republican Party should become “more loyal to Trump,” even if it means losing support from establishment Republicans, versus 19% saying the party should become less loyal to Trump and more aligned with establishment Republicans.
The survey of 1,000 Trump voters, identified from 2020 polls, was taken by landline and cellphone last Monday through Friday. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
Pelosi claims Trump is ‘accessory’ to murder because he ‘instigated’ deadly violence at US Capitol
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed Tuesday that outgoing President Donald Trump could be held criminally liable for the deadly violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Pelosi already led a successful second effort to impeach Trump last week, officially charging him with “incitement of insurrection.” But speaking on MSNBC, Pelosi said Trump could be deemed an “accessory” to murder for the deaths that occurred, in the view of many Trump critics, due to Trump’s rhetoric surrounding the integrity of the election.
During her interview, show host Joy Reid asked Pelosi how Congress can move forward with Trump allies still seated, especially representatives who supported Trump’s claims of a “stolen” or “rigged” election.
“We have security beyond what anybody ever thought would be the need. And why? Because this president has been telling people that the election was not legitimate and these people believe him, they believe a president,” Pelosi began.
“A president’s words are important, they weigh a ton,” Pelosi continued. “And if you’re Donald Trump talking to these people, they believe it and they used his words to come here. So, when we talk about ‘did any of our colleagues collaborate?’ Well, that remains to be seen. We have to get the evidence of that.”
“And if they did, they would be accessory to the crime. And the crime, in some cases, was murder,” Pelosi said. “And this president is an accessory to that crime because he instigated that insurrection that caused those deaths and this destruction.”
District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine admitted Sunday that his office could criminally charge Trump for his role in the Capitol violence.
In fact, Racine explained on MSNBC that Trump could be charged with “a misdemeanor, a six-month-in-jail maximum.”
“Let it be known that the office of attorney general has a potential charge that it may utilize,” Racine said. “It’s law in DC since 2011. It makes illegal the statements of individuals that clearly encourage, cajole, and otherwise, you know, get people motivated to commit violence.”
Racine added that Trump’s “conduct prior to the mob storming the Capitol is relevant. I think his conduct during that time and immediately thereafter is also relevant.”
However, no prosecutor, either within D.C. or federally, has indicated they will pursue criminal charges against Trump.
Clinton & Pelosi Suggest Trump Was Following Putin’s Orders To Allow Capitol Siege
In a conversation that sounds like two demented Q Anon members, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi suggested that President Trump instigated the Capitol siege at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
Two time failed Presidential candidate Hillary wheeled out Pelosi on her “podcast”, and the two soon began to spout their familiar conspiracy theories.
“We learned a lot about our system of government over the last four years with a president who disdains democracy and, as you have said numerous times, has other agendas,” Clinton blathered.
“What they all are, I don’t think we yet know. I hope historically we will find out who he’s beholden to, who pulls his strings,” she continued, adding “I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol.”
She then said that Trump’s “enablers,” “accomplices,” and “cult members” were behind the rioting.
Clinton asked Pelosi “Do you think we need a 9/11-type commission to investigate and report everything that they can pull together and explain what happened?”
Pelosi responded “I do,” and claimed she told Trump that “With you, Mr. President, all roads lead to Putin.”
“And these people, unbeknownst to them, maybe, are Putin puppets. They were doing Putin’s business when they did that at the incitement of an insurrection by the president of the United States,” Pelosi proclaimed, adding “So yes, we should have a 9/11 commission, and there is strong support in the Congress to do that.”
Q was right! In this world exclusive Alex Jones breaks down how President Trump will institute a final move and arrest all the globalist and assume a 2nd term.
So another three year waste of time and money chasing some Putin conspiracy?
