Yes sir and ma'am, wishing you all a very, very happy Second Impeachment Day! I know it's a great one for me and not just because we have wonderful mild weather here in the Heartland today.
Congress is, at this very moment working on the 2nd impeachment---history making!--of this Republican Party President one Donald J "Jenius" (or is that "The John"?) Trump. And rightfully so after fomenting his treasonous, traitorous insurrection at our nation's Capitol last week which ended up costing 5 American lives and threatening the lives of our representatives in Congress and their staffs.
So were are we now, today, at this moment? There is nowhere better to look than here to a historian to give us a summary and put things into clearer perspective.
The news continues to move at a breathless pace.
After making no comments on the January 6 coup attempt since the day after, when he continued his assault on the validity of the 2020 election, Trump today refused to acknowledge he has done anything wrong. He told reporters his speech to the “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington, D.C., that prompted the assault on the Capitol, was “totally appropriate.” He insisted that “other people” had said that the “real problem” was “the horrible riots in Portland and Seattle and various other places.”
Instead of addressing his role in the crisis, on his way to Alamo, Texas (not The Alamo, which is in San Antonio, Texas, about four hours away from Alamo), Trump blamed the Democrats for attacking him unfairly. He said that the Democrats who were pushing for impeachment were once again on a “witch hunt” that was “causing tremendous danger to our country.”
No one is buying it.
