What happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6 was not an ad hoc protest, but a planned criminal attack on the American democratic republic by a mob determined to a violent overthrow of the representative government of the United States.
The GOP ignored the threats to the American way of life and contributed to his inciting of his supporters to outright, violent sedition against Congress, the government and this nation. They ignored the dangers because Trump promised to pack the Supreme Court with conservative judges and worse.
Momentum continues to build in Congress to get rid of Trump as quickly as possible.
The damage to America’s democracy and soul by Trump is immeasurable, but does it outweigh the pandemic, economy and other issues?
As more and more Republicans say they’ve “had it” with Trump, his lies and his antics, the pressure is on to get him out of the White House and Washington now.
Bye, bye, you un-American guy. “I do think the president committed impeachable offenses,” says Pennsylvania GOP Sen. Pat Toomey. He joins a growing list of Republicans who say Trump must go, even before his term ends in 10 days, and never be allowed to seek office again.
Trump’s megalomania would never let himself accept defeat while his hate and anger brought him to want to burn down the place that now rejects him.
The Democratic sweep of the Georgia Senate runoff elections on Jan. 5th gave Biden control of the Senate leadership of his party by his party and the troubles in Washington give him some pending help from fed-up Republicans over Trump.
With Trump holed in his office, many worry that he is plotting more violence and mayhem in his final days in office.
Trump preferred Twitter to even talking directly with people. He would stay up late at night filing tweet after tweet, many of them lies.
