It appears President Trump is about to be the first to be impeached for the second time as The Washington Post reports that House Democrats, which just formally introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump, have lined up the votes to impeach him for his role in "inciting an insurrectionist mob" to storm the Capitol.

“We actually have the votes,” Rep. David Cicilline, the Rhode Island Democrat who has taken the lead in rounding up support for a resolution of impeachment, told The Washington Post.

“There’s no doubt about that.”

The article, co-authored by Reps. David Cicilline (R-I.), Ted Lieu (Calif.) and Jamie Raskin (Md.), states that Trump engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors by “willfully inciting violence against the Government of the United States.” The full text of the article is as follows:

As Jonathan Turley just warned this impeachment will not only create precedent for an expedited pathway of “snap impeachments” but allow future Congresses to impeach presidents for actions of their supporters.

There was no call for lawless action by Trump. Instead, there was a call for a protest at the Capitol. Moreover, violence was not imminent; the vast majority of the tens of thousands of protesters present were not violent before the march, and most did not riot inside the Capitol. Like many violent protests we have witnessed over the last four years, including Trump’s 2017 inauguration, the criminal conduct was carried out by a smaller group of instigators. Capitol police knew of the planned march but declined an offer of National Guard personnel because they did not view violence as likely.

Thus, Congress is about to seek the impeachment of a president for a speech that is protected under the First Amendment. It would create precedent for the impeachment of any president who can be blamed for the violent acts of others after the use of reckless or inflammatory language.

It remains unclear how this will unfold. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s latest plan is for the House to vote on a separate resolution calling on Vice President Pence to initiate a 25th Amendment process to remove Trump.

Mike Pence was the deep stater candidate that ensured that Trump had a leash on him. Now that the business of Trump being utterly destroyed is at hand, 9 days from his exit date, you can better believe nobody is going to come to his aid or do what he tells them. After all, he’s been impeached and disgraced thanks to the paid agents who rioted on the 6th.

If we had a real media, and a real government that was not bought by foreign powers and foreign money, this would not have happened. This is the ending of America as we know it and every socialist liberal gets to have the last laugh. Right up until they are led off to the gulag for being inconvenient.

From Templar X at ZH...

Just think, by January 20, 2021, America will, for the first time ever, have a demented president who took naked showers with his underage daughter. If nothing else, that well known fact should tell everyone just what kind of people are running America, especially those in the Deep State.

How far America has fallen, to soon have, for the first time ever, a known pedophile sitting as the U.S. President, and one those who voted for him knew to be a pedophile!!!!

There is an old saying, "People get the rulers they deserve."

Yes, a father and "president" who has raised a drug and sex addicted son and a sexualized daughter.

What does that say about the American people, those who allowed such evil people to steal the election of 2020, to illegally seize power in a relatively bloodless (unless you count the planned riots in Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, and Baltimore, etc.) coup d'etat?

Trump is not guilty of "incitement"

Stupid move on the part of democrats.

If this makes it to a trial in the Senate, Trump will have the opportunity to present evidence in his defense.

That could very well include evidence of massive voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Things could get interesting...

Another day, another riot. Soros has deep pockets.

The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it.
