    Nine out of ten House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump over the January 6 riot at the U.S. capitol face primary challenges from America First candidates. Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY), Tom Rice (R-SC) Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), Dan Newhouse (R-WA), Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH), Fred Upton (R-MI), Peter Meijer (R-MI), and David Valadao (R-CA) are all under pressure from GOP primary challengers. Rep. John Katko (R-NY) is the only Republican who backed impeachment yet to draw an America First challenger. Katko also worked with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in May to approve a...

    Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is the first Somali American and African refugee in the United States Congress. She was born in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu. After spending four years in a Kenyan refugee camp to which Ilhan Omar and her family fled as Somalia descended into civil war, she and her family moved to America. They settled in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood in downtown Minneapolis, which is nicknamed “Little Mogadishu” because of its high concentration of Somali American residents. Ilhan Omar became a U.S. citizen in 2000 and was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018. She was re-elected...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested that Governor Andrew Cuomo may ultimately answer widespread calls to resign, but only "right before" a state-led impeachment proceeding is complete. On Sunday the mayor discussed what could lie ahead for the governor, a fellow Democrat, amid mounting sexual misconduct allegations and lingering public backlash over his role in New York's nursing home COVID crisis. "I think he'll try to hold out," de Blasio told CBS News' Margaret Brennan during on Face the Nation, responding to an inquiry about whether Cuomo will in fact step down from his position as governor. "I...

    Andrew Cuomo must be removed from office.Either by his own resignation or by impeachment in the legislature. His day is done, the hole is too deep, we have suffered enough.It is time for the progressive community to rise against him, for the Democrat establishment to throw off his yoke, for his intimidated subordinates to storm the castle. Conditioned to subservience by his harsh temper and spiteful vindictiveness, rank-and-file Democrats in the administration and in the press must unify around his removal.He deserves it, and so do we.His actions over the last several days are the icing on the cake, the...

    Members of the Clark County Republican Party voted Tuesday to formally censure Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, over her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump.In a rowdy gathering at a church Tuesday, the group pledged to withhold funds from Herrera Beutler’s future campaigns unless she appears in person at the next CCRP Central Committee meeting in May to “explain her action to this body.”The resolution passed by a wide margin, to whoops and applause.“In the interest of fairness, do we have any nays?” CCPR Chair Joel Mattila asked, drawing laughter from the crowd, according to a video of...
  • Even with acquittal, GOP sees trial ending Trump's shot at future office

    Senate Republicans, including those who do not plan to vote to convict former President Trump, say this week’s impeachment trial has effectively ended any chance of him becoming the GOP presidential nominee in 2024. From the viewpoint of some Republican senators, the compelling case presented by House prosecutors carries a silver lining: It means they likely won’t have to worry about Trump running for president again in three years, while at the same time eroding his influence in party politics more generally.

    MSN, CNN and other liberal media outlets refer to the "kickoff" of the circus impeachment trial. Starting Tuesday at 12 pm ET, four hours equally divided between the Impeachment Managers and Trump’s lawyers to present arguments on the constitutionality of the trial. After the arguments, the Senate will vote on whether the Senate trial is proper, with a 51-vote threshold. Wednesday, February 10 both sides begin 16 hours each to present their case. Each side must use their time over no more than two days and each day’s presentation will not exceed eight hours. Next, both sides will get a...

    President Biden early on is touting his insistence on “ethics” from cabinet nominees and professional staff, and who can argue with that? But it will take more than a signed piece of paper to guard against the conflicts of interest and invitations to collusion that arise when professional activists from the outside suddenly find themselves on the inside, with the levers of federal power within easy reach. ...For example, Biden’s pick to advise the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is leaving her post as an Earthjustice attorney. Just last year, Earthjustice initiated a lawsuit to halt offshore drilling in the...

    Even as a mere Florida man, former President Donald Trump sure looks as if he's trying to knife the Republican Party. On Saturday morning, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the House's resident anti-Semitic QAnon conspiracy theorist, boasted that she had shared a call with the supportive former president. By evening, news emerged that Trump's legal team had resigned barely 48 hours before his first response to the article of impeachment is due and a little more than a week before the Senate trial begins. The reason: Trump wants to present the one defense that would render it political suicide to...

    Several Republican senators on Sunday discouraged suggestions that the chamber could convict former President Donald Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial. "Well first of all, I think the trial is stupid," Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., told "Fox News Sunday." "I think it's counterproductive. We already have a flaming fire in this country and [impeachment is] taking a bunch of gasoline and pouring it on top of the fire." Rubio added he believes Trump "bears responsibility for some of what happened" during the deadly riots at the Capitol earlier this month but that he does not believe impeachment is the right...

    Amid a rising American atmosphere of political death threats and violence, some are calling for a secret vote to determined Donald Trump’s upcoming impeachment trial to protect senators’ safety. The idea was discussed last time around after Trump’s first impeachment in 2019. Some argued that Republicans were unable to vote their conscience because of pressure from their party and constituents. Secret votes, however, run contrary to a principle of transparency and senators’ accountability. Critics on Twitter complained Republicans would claim they voted one way, while actually voting exactly the opposite. This time around, for Trump’s second impeachment, the risk of...

    The Texas Republican senator John Cornyn warned on Saturday that Donald Trump’s second impeachment could lead to the prosecution of former Democratic presidents if Republicans retake Congress in two years’ time. **SNIP** After a brief moment of bipartisan sentiment in which members from both parties condemned the unprecedented attack on Congress as it met to formalize Biden’s victory, a number of Senate Republicans are opposing Trump’s trial, which could lead to a vote blocking him from future office. “If it is a good idea to impeach and try former presidents, what about former Democratic presidents when Republicans get the majority...

    Majority Leader Chuck Schumer made a really hilarious gaffe on Friday on the Senate floor. Schumer told his colleges that they will have to decide if former President Donald Trump incited the “erection” against the US. “Make no mistake, there will be a trial and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection against the United States,” Schumer said. ..... Snip...... Naturally, the puns came rolling in on social media.
  • Speed should not be focus of Trump impeach trial (IMPEACHMENT HELD HOSTAGE - DAY 37)

    01/23/2021 1:54:20 AM PST · by Libloather · 17 replies
    Can former President Donald Trump get a fair trial? It’s a question worth asking, as his impending impeachment before the Senate appears to favor speed over due process. According to Politico, multiple sources on Capitol Hill said that lawmakers have privately discussed the possibility of a three-day impeachment trial for Trump - the fastest of any such procedure for a president. (Bill Clinton’s impeachment lasted nearly two months, and Trump’s first trial clocked in at about three weeks.) Talks about the trial’s parameters between Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are still ongoing, so nothing has been...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is reviewing a request from Republicans to put off the start of former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial until mid-February, a Schumer spokesman said Thursday. **SNIP** Trump is the only U.S. president to have been impeached twice, and his trial in the Senate will be the only one ever to have taken place after a president has left office. A source familiar with the planning told Reuters the House could transmit the article of impeachment as early as Friday, and No. 2 Senate Democrat Dick Durbin said he expected it "in...

    Senate Democrats are torn on the timing of an impeachment trial for President Trump, worried it could delay President-elect Joe Biden's agenda for a week or longer. Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) has proposed that the Senate could work on a dual track by processing Biden's Cabinet picks in the morning while holding a speedy impeachment trial for Trump in the afternoon, but Republicans don't seem interested in the idea and can easily block it. This puts Democrats in the tricky spot of deciding whether to prioritize a second impeachment trial for Trump, which wouldn't begin until after he...

    There remain many unanswered questions about the historic second impeachment trial for Donald Trump. But it is now clear it will not begin until he’s left office and will be conducted entirely after Democrats have taken control of the U.S. Senate. At one point, there was talk that Nancy Pelosi would rush the article of impeachment the House passed on January 13 over to the Senate, compelling the upper chamber to begin a trial immediately after Mitch McConnell’s planned January 19 resumption of Senate business and perhaps before Democrats took control upon the swearing in of the two new senators...

    (CNSNews.com) – Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that there was a “bicameral, bipartisan effort” to look at censuring President Donald Trump, which she said would hold him accountable and prohibit him from holding office again, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wouldn’t bring it up for a vote. “Well, one of the things, one of the options that was on the table last week when we were going through the impeachment, getting up to D.C. for that, was that there was a bicameral, bipartisan effort to look at censure as an option. That would...
