    He was giving speech where he said peaceful and patriotically. He tried to tweet during the events, but twitter and others blocked his abilities to do that. They removed his tweet telling them to go home. He then tried to release a short video. Which was also banned and removed. He also tried to send 10000 troops there. They declined. Government offered help, they declined. This is insane. Are people really this ignorant and stupid to think he should he impeached?

Anyone that has ever dealt with kids knows very well that just saying stop, doesn't always work, and it only gets worse as we grow up and become too hard-headed and prideful to stop doing wrong.

      You never know what might or might not have happened. But action or lack of action tells about your attitude towards the issue. Trump could have done anything within his power but he chose to observe. It could have helped or could not, who knows, but he chose to sit idle.

No you’re all pissy about a one hour event at the capital your a TDS fool. I also condemned the behavior of the few that took part in the capital breach but I can’t see how it’s trumps fault but then again I don’t have TDS where I believe everything has to do with Trump and trumps indirect and direct cause of everything.

    Donald Trump's excuse for not appearing as a witness to these impeachment proceedings is that the impeachment is not constitutional. The Senate had voted that it is constitutional. Will he now appear as a witness?

    • Shannon Pendergrass
      Shannon Pendergrass

      It is their admission that he is still the president because it is unconstitutional and illegal to impeach an American citizen you can only impeach the president. Please read your Constitution or take the free class at Hillsdale college. It's a great class. So Donald Trump is 100% correct it is unconstitutional if of course he is not the president but if he is the president they still don't have any standing because their claims are baseless false conspiracy theories. But Nancy Pelosi is guilty of inciting violence Maxine Waters is guilty of inciting violence Chuck Schumer is guilty of inciting violence against scotus members once scotus member was actually murdered as a result of Bernie Sanders incitement. So do you hold them to the same accountability? Or do you feel it's okay for them because your comment implies that it's okay for them making it a double standard for the rest of America. What if it was you they hated

      The lawyer is an ambulance chaser. He said zero facts, he made no case to exonerate trump, and all he did was attack the prosecution. The prosecution was clear and concise and very factual. Basically it made sense... but those defense lawyer made zero sense. They couldn't even answer any questions that were asked. Just a bunch of gaslighting and distractions. If this was a real court, Trumps lawyers would have been disbarred.

      @Mr Berzerk You clearly don't know what you are talking about. 1. The Iran nuclear deal is in no way illegal. It is a framework put in place through the joint effort of the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, France, China, Germany and the European Union to control the unregulated development of weaponized nuclear development in Iran. It was done because sanctions were not working. Trump backed out against the direct wished of his major allies because...some reasons I guess. 2. The VAST majority of US oil imports are from Canada. Canada and US produced oil make up almost all of US oil consumption, with very little being contributed to the Middle East and Mexico.

    Timeline of how Trump and his allies incited an insurrection on our nation's Capitol, and against our democracy.. September 23, 2020: In response to a direct question, Trump refuses to say he will ensure a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election. “Well,we’re going to have to see what happens.” He further raises alarms about a potential transition of power: “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful - there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.” September 29, 2020: First Presidential Debate. when asked to condemn white suprema.cist mili.tias like the Proud Boys, Trump tells them to “Stand back and stand by,” November 13, 2020: In the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, Trump’s allies spearhead a media campaign and a call to action of Trump supporters. “This is as serious a constitutional crisis as our nation has ever faced. We will only be the beacon of hope for the world if we are willing to stand with courage and integrity & defend our republic,” Mike Flynn tweets. Sidney Powell echos the statements, saying in an interview that “This is essentially a new American revolution. And anyone who wants this country to remain free needs to step up right now.” December 2, 2020: Viol.ent rhetoric by Trump’s allies continues as the Georgia Senate runoff race nears. “We’re going to sla.y Goliath, the comm.unists, the liberals, the phonies. Joe Biden will never set foot in the Oval Office of this country. It will not happen on our watch. Never gonna happen,” Lin Wood claims at the Stop the Steal Rally in Alpharetta, Georgia. December 8, 2020: The official Twitter account of the Arizona GOP asks supporters whether they are willing to "d.l.e" for Trump. In response to a Stop the Steal tweet saying “I am willing to give my life for this fight,” the Arizona GOP tweets, “He is. Are you?” The GOP account also tweets a clip of the 2008 movie “Rambo,” as the character proclaims, “This is what we do, who we are. Live for nothing, or d.l.e for something.” 19 December 2020 - Be there, will be wild: At 1.42am in the early hours of 19 December Trump tweeted the lie that it was “statistically impossible” for him to have lost the presidential election. He gave his first notice of a “big protest in DC” on 6 January. “Be there, will be wild!” he said. 19 December - The cavalry is coming: Within hours, fervent Trump supporters began to heed Trump’s rallying cry. Kylie Jane Kremer, founder of a Stop the Steal group banned by FB, picked up the notice about the march and ran with it. “The calvary is coming, Mr President!” she said. Trump retweeted Kremer’s post, saying: “A great honor!” 1 January 2021 - You got to go to the streets and be vio.lent: Louie Gohmert responded in inflammatory terms to news that his federal lawsuit seeking to force Mike Pence to block certification of Biden’s victory had been dismissed. "The bottom line is, the court is saying, ‘We’re not going to touch this. You have no remedy’,” he told News.max. “Basically, in effect, the ruling would be that you got to go to the streets and be as vio.lent as An.tifa.” 3 January- We will not go quietly into the night: Ted Cruz addressed a rally in Georgia. “We will not go quietly into the night. We will defend liberty. And we are going to win." 6 January - We’re coming for you: Don Jr, appeared as the warm-up carney act at the “Save America Rally” on the National Mall. He threatened the Republicans who, as he spoke, were preparing to vote on certifying the election result. “The people who did nothing to stop the steal. This gathering should send a message to them: This isn’t their Republican party any more. This is Donald Trump’s.” Then Don jr. said: “If you’re gonna be the zero and not the hero, we’re coming for you and we’re going to have a good time doing it!” 6 January - Trial by combat: Rudy Giuliani, who has been a leading proponent of the falsehood that the election was fraudulently rigged, addressed the rally. “If we’re wrong, we will be made fo.ols of,” he said. “But if we’re right, a lot of them will go to jail. So let’s have trial by combat!!!!” 6 January - We will not take it any more: Trump then addressed the crowd just outside the White House for more than an hour, urging them to march on the Capitol building. “We will not take it any more,” he said. “You’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong … I know everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building." The crowd followed his instructions and began marching on the Capitol. A USA Today analysis discovered that After Trump used the word "MARCH" one Parlor user wrote: "Time to fight. The civil war is upon us." And another Parlor user said: "We are going to have a civil war. Get ready!!" The analysis by USA Today also found that the use of the phrase "civil war" increased nearly four times during Trump’s speech, as it was used on 156 separate occasions while he spoke.

      Not once did he call for violent conflict. This is literally all conjecture.

  • David J
    David J

    The truth of the matter is, if Trump had not filled his followers heads with lies for months, and if he had not held that rally, where he instructed his followers to march to the Capitol and fight like he// in order to "stop the steal" the insurrection never would have happened. Because without the use of vio.lence, how else were they going to stop the so called steal? The problem with Trump's lawyer's argument, is that there was literally nothing left to fight for, because the election was over. The only thing that remained was for Pence to count and certify the electoral votes. So the only thing they could've been fighting for, was to bring a stop to the counting of the electoral votes, which would officially certify Biden as the next democratically elected president. And vio.lence was the only option they had left. Trump had already exhausted every other legal and illegal option. So on January 6, the vio.lence card was the only card Trump had left, and he played it.
