    I am drawing up Articles of Impeachment.

    Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate.

    We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath.

    On what grounds can he be impeached?

    I'm all for removing him from office but I don't see how impeachment sticks.

    I mean, I've been in situations that seemed alright and turned very south very quickly, so who knows what it'll be like here in the near future. I'm still being cautious and wary. I didn't mean it to sound like I was super blase about it all right now.

    Also CNN reporting at least two explosive devices rendered safe at the US capitol.

    He's on camera this morning telling his supporters to storm the Capitol and disrupt the electoral count.

    The guy said in a speech earlier today that people need to march on the Capitol. Like literally the day that this shit happened.

    And then continued to tweet about how Pence had failed him and how America needed to demand answers.

    Now I'm not a lawyer, but I'm sure you can get something out of that.

    This is like Cori Bush’s third day and I’m guessing 1st bill and it’s to expel all the seditionists from Congress

    The constitution does not define what high crimes and misdemeanors are.

    It’s up to Congress to decide when they draft the articles and then when they vote to remove.

    It’s pretty easy to use incitement and insurrection here though.

    Almost literally anything and everything he's said or done for the past 4 years and especially everything he's said or done following his loss are all actionable and grounds for removal from office.

    Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if Labor had not first existed. Labor is superior to capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. - Lincoln

    Don't forget he was recorded on a phone call like four days ago threatening a state official to commit election fraud in his favor

    I hope all you USA forumers are staying safe.

    As much as the coverage makes it look like the entire country is being torn apart by mobs, it's really just DC and a few state capital buildings. Which is not, like, not scary, but the vast majority of us aren't in any danger.

    I'm aware, but 70 million of your fellow citizens voted for Trump, and while many of those voters aren't this extreme, there are obviously enough of them, with the complicity of the state to put people in danger. And I'm sure there are forumers living in DC and the state capitals.
    The situation is, y'know, less than ideal, but right-wing militias storming a building closed to the general public doesn't make me feel nearly as unsafe as right-wing militias threatening groups of civil rights protesters in the streets, and the latter has been happening regularly for a pretty long time. So my current feelings are less "this represents an escalation in threat to my personal safety" and more "maybe this is the thing that will finally force the general public to acknowledge the threat that was already here".

    Sedition and Treason.

    Congress GOP: Why should we impeach him?

    Everyone else: He literally riled up a mob to attack you.

    Congress GOP: But did he though?

    Everyone else: They're in the congressional chambers. You're talking to us from a secret underground escape tunnel.

    Congress GOP: That's just your opinion.

    I was expecting a lot more dumb things to happen before Trump left office, but, uh, this is more crazy than I was expecting.

    The protests sure, but them actually getting into the capitol? Nope!

    I think this has gotten close enough to the actual seats of power in the country that the people stoking this up for personal benefit are going to reconsider. Like Ted Cruz is shitting his pants right now.

    people have been saying some variation on this since the teapers and it has never come to pass even a single time

    Yeah, some people thought those of us who said this looked awfully fascist back in 2016 were being dramatic. I follow a lot of historians on twitter, since its a way to keep in touch my what I studied for my undergrad, and historians have been screaming about this for ages.

    Proving the clichés right is not ideal!

    If anything they're going to send even more fundraising emails because of this. Gotta get that sweet, sweet terrorist militia money!

    It's worth noting that the CNN reporters in the field were getting mobbed by people shouting at them when the reporters accurately called said people "rioters".

    They are doing what they need to stay the fuck alive.

    They interviewed Jeffries on ABC and Stephanapoulos asked him about Omar drafting impeachment articles, to which Jeffries could only reply "yeah all options are on the table."

    This is how we get to where we are. Republicans repeatedly enabling the worst of their followers while Democrats just nod nearby and say "ah yes, now they will see the errors of their ways".

    CNN has also called them "insurrectionists, terrorists, traitors", are repeatedly calling this a coup etc. Calling out the differences between this response and the responses last summer.

    I'm going to give the people who are literally surrounded by said insurrectionists, terrorists, traitors et. al. the benefit of the doubt on vocabulary.
