I feel like the story today about a heated meeting where trump asked if he military can force a new election, but meadows and another pushed back, is performance theater. It makes Trump’s cult think he was fighting, while making the other people seem reasonable by comparison.

He'll need to resign so Pence can pardon him.

Josh Hawley's announcement answers our question: Loses the election: disputed loss, loses the office

(with the obvious caveat that it ain't over til January 20)

What gets me is the press constantly describing the effort as "doomed to fail." I fail to see how it's doomed to fail with such certainty, given the events of the past four years.

We'd be better served as a nation if instead they focused extensively on how dangerous and destructive this situation is.

Some more ppl have got to come out after this call. It's clear that he has nothing and is just trying to overturn an election. Very dangerous times for America, and they are the ones talking about the Constitution.

Quote :
"Shortly after 1 p.m. ET hundreds of pro-Trump protesters pushed through barriers set up along the perimeter of the Capitol, where they tussled with officers in full riot gear, some calling the officers "traitors" for doing their jobs. About 90 minutes later, police said demonstrators got into the building and the doors to the House and Senate were being locked. Shortly after, the House floor was evacuated by police.

An armed standoff was taking place at the House front door as of 3 p.m. ET, and police officers had their guns drawn at someone who is trying to breach it.

Vice President Mike Pence was also evacuated from Capitol, where he was to perform his role in the counting of electoral votes.

Video from inside the Capitol showed Trump supporters marching through Statuary Hall. The US Capitol Police is asking for additional law enforcement for assistance, including federal authorities, per a source familiar."


LOL, 'Murrcans trying to be like the 3rd worlders from "shithole countries" they despise and chastise so much for being backward savages.

1-5 still have a chance!

1) Doesn't finish the term: resigns
2) Doesn't finish the term: 25th amendment
3) Doesn't finish the term: impeached, convicted, removed
4) Doesn't finish the term: dies of natural causes
5) Doesn't finish the term: dies of unnatural causes

#3 should happen ASAP imo

We’re beyond a peaceful transition of power when fascists are free roaming the Capitol building accessing unsecured computers of the speaker of the house. The whole network infrastructure needs to be scrubbed now, they can’t safely start working there today. There’s supposedly a backup chamber somewhere for congress to convene, they need to vote to remove Trump. He’s not going to deescalate.

It’s being reported that pence authorized the national guard not trump

This is actually really bad because this sort of technicality gives trump legal standing to say there’s a coup against him, especially if the cabinet and congress haven’t officially declared trump unfit

Is the VP not authorized to activate the national guard? Unless Trump admits that dispersing rioters went against his will I don’t see how he has any standing to claim it is a coup attempt.

how long would it theoretically take to get the votes, signatures etc to invoke the 25th? impeachment would damn sure take longer than the 2 weeks he is still in office

I don't understand people that think he could be 25th'ed but not even impeached, much less removed. They barely got 2/3 of the house to vote to certify

In a way we are getting a good end to trump. He’s personally discredited on a bipartisan basis, people who’ve worked with him are pariahs, you can call his supporters terrorists without too much pushback, his businesses and children will likely suffer for a long time, he’s brought down a few other senators and reps with him, the gop is tarnished for a generation, he’s still subject to prosecution for other past crimes.

The main negative is 5 ppl had to die, and we still have the possibility of some of these yokels creating a long term terrorist threat similar to the weather underground or other types or groups. I think a more remote chance of a bigger threat like the IRA is still possible.

^^
What cemented this for me is a close friend who was a vocal trump supporter finally admitting he is a bad person that needs to be impeached and removed. This only happened after the Capitol attack. I think that (combined with strained relationships) pushed a lot of trump supporters firmly into hating Trump, and willing to be public about it.

Give them a few weeks. Trump's supporters will retreat to their misinformation bubbles and before long none of this will seem so bad. Almost like it never happened.

Even if he's impeached or the 25th is invoked does it really matter with less than two weeks left?
