The Senate could proceed with a sham impeachment trial against President Donald Trump even after Trump leaves office. Democrats have pledged to ram through an impeachment in response to a raucous protest outside of the US Capitol building this week, in which Trump supporters breached the Capitol and disrupted the counting of electoral college votes.
It would be unlawful for the House of Representatives to enact an impeachment resolution after Trump leaves office, but some legal scholars have claimed the Senate could proceed with an impeachment passed by the House after the President leaves office.
The House of Representatives is expected to begin impeachment proceedings on Monday, and will seek to railroad through a sloppy impeachment through the lower chamber before Trump leaves office on January 20th. Such an attempt will break every record in congressional history for impeachment proceedings, and will likely deny the President an opportunity to select legal counsel and present arguments in his own defense.
Mitch McConnell circulated a memo Saturday suggesting that the Senate could only begin an impeachment trial after President Trump leaves office on January 20th. It’s possible that the Senate Majority Leader would block a futile and time-wasting sham impeachment of a former President, but it’s not an impossibility that McConnell will devote precious legislative time and energy to the charade. Longtime anti-Trump Republican Senators Ben Sasse and Lisa Murkowski have suggested they’d line up behind such an effort, which would require fourteen further Republican Senators to convict Trump.
Establishment liberals would go through with the charade as an attempt to humiliate President Trump and his supporters- just months after Trump secured a record-setting 74 million votes- acting out of sheer spite and vindictiveness. Impeachment would also legally prevent President Trump from running for President in 2024, conveniently eliminating the possibility of Trump challenging the Democrats through power in an election without so much as a single vote.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
