LIVE: House Vote To Impeach Donald Trump
Side Score: 21
Side Score: 3
I guess it’s only people like Amarel who can see absolutely no wrongdoing even Republicans find his actions reprehensible........
In a strongly worded statement last night, Liz Cheney, a representative from Wyoming, the No. 3 Republican in the House, and the daughter of the former vice-president Dick Cheney, said that Trump had “summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack” during the Capitol riot on January 6.
“Everything that followed was his doing,” she said. “None of this would have happened without the president. I will vote to impeach the president.”
After setting the ball rolling by House GOP members, Cheney was joined last night by the Washington representative Jaime Herrera Beutler, the New York representative John Katko, the Illinois representative Adam Kinzinger, and representative Fred Upton, of Michigan, the Republicans who all said they would vote for impeachment.
Let’s be honest Trump is a cunt

Sure, but so is Dick Cheney. And unlike Trump, Dick Cheney is far from stupid. I've never heard much from his daughter (although I'm aware she's involved in politics), but anybody who proudly wears the name Cheney into a political career is almost certainly going to be a scumbag.
Are you watching the feed?
Most are calling to impeach and I have to say I agree with them. It comes down to accountability. Even if there was no intent to create that outcome specifically, he was still irrefutably trying to dump more fuel on a fire he has been stoking for months, and which is based on nothing except his own lies. He didn't want to concede power, he'd exhausted his legal avenues, so he probably just figured he'd incite his supporters and see what happened. It's exactly the kind of thoughtless, gung ho decision he's been making for the last four years.
The three or four Republicans I've seen rise in support for him have all been ideological scumbags who want to turn his impeachment hearing into an attack on what they call the "radical left" (i.e. their terminology for centre right laissez-faire capitalists) with the exception of one, who did make a genuinely convincing argument not to impeach.
I agree Cheney is another grade a cunt .
I’m watching it online the US is turning into what people like Orwell seen coming a nightmarish country that’s getting worse .
I watched Noam Chomsky say Trump is the worst criminal in human history he makes pretty valid points for his arguments only he’s a gentleman and old school I’m sure he would have said “he’s also a cunt “
How is impeachment going to remove the damage this man has done. Impeachment won’t put him in prison. Impeachment won’t stop him from receiving the million of dollars for his retirement.
Impeachment won’t remove the fact that there is about half of the country that believes in this man and believe in a war against democrats. Which is wack because democrat is a political idea. One that isn’t even that different from republican.
Impeachment won’t remove the division deeply rooted in the American population.
Impeachment is a joke. America is the world shit stain.
the house impeaching the president is equivalent to the president being charged with a crime. if the senate affirms the impeachment then that is equivalent to the president being convicted of the crime. if convicted of impeachable crimes, the president will be removed from office and may be disqualified from ever holding political office again (at the discretion of the senate in what equates to sentencing). this would prevent trump from running in 2024 (or ever again). i doubt whether the senate will convict and suspect the house knows this, so in this particular case ur correct. however, impeachment is not necessarily "a joke" in the usa.
ur right that the usa's a shit stain tho. no contest there.
Trump has certainly made it look like joke... And trump doesn’t seem the slightest concerned or embarrassed. His followers either. Republicans too. Republicans just keep dropping their pants and presenting their anus for Trump.
The Impeachment of Trump seemed like a lot of energy for too little.
And impeachment in a bipartisan system just seems like the outcome will always end in a deadlock... The only case where maybe a full impeachment can go through is if we have the Senate and House of the opposite party of the president... I haven’t checked if that has ever happened in the US but if it has it is almost like being fired already.

I believe they are going to try him after the transition. They also need to hold a separate vote about whether to bar him from holding office again.
I really hope they get him but I wouldn't hold my breath. They need about 20 Republicans to defect. He still has a lot of support from the Republican Party, which is frightening given that at this point he's barely even making an effort to disguise that he wants to be the next Hitler.
