On this eve of Donald J. Drumpf’s second impeachment much has been said about the tears the GQP RepubliQan party is shedding over the so-called “UN-constitutionality” of the proceedings and that ‘procedure’ or even some imagined protocol was not met in the House of Representatives INDICTMENT of him.
Not enough can be said about the gravity and the reason why Trump is again being impeached. In the first impeachment it was about corruption and personal grift; using another country to attack a political opponent and namely President Biden during the last election campaign cycle. Not to mention withholding military aid in a clear case involving quid-pro-quo.
In this second impeachment, it is far worst – Trump did in fact incite and encourage his supporters in his Cult-of-Trump to storm the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 in order to stop the congressional certification of the states votes cast and affirming President Biden’s victory over him. This was his ‘last gasp’ effort to steal an election .. to disenfranchise voters and as far as to fabricate thousands of his own in the Georgia count.
It most certainly IS far worst in the fact that the day before his followers’ terrorist attack on the Capitol he was not only animated in his propaganda/rhetoric, but blowing the loudest dog whistle ever imagined in the history of American politics. But even this is not enough, nor will ever be enough for those Senate RepubliQans who will vote ‘nay’ and attempt to acquit him. Of which brings into question his state of mind; did he really intend to for his supporters in QAnon, Proud Boys, white supremacist, neo-Nazi, etc. to attack the Capitol – kidnap Democrat law makers in order to execute them??? .. They did in fact bring with them a hangman’s gallows and police zip-ties .. Those apprehended have stated that the did what they did because ‘Trump told them to.’
But then the GQP RepubliQan argument then shifts to the 1st Amendment regarding ‘free speech.’ And basically that argument is that it’s okay to “yell fire in a crowded theater” and in this case burn down, or even destroy the U.S. Capitol, at his behest because of his LIE that the election was stolen from him.
Trump’s state of mind is clear and it has been told, by witnesses that he “enjoyed” what he was seeing of the attack; he waited hours after the attack to send some sort of fake contrition as to what the country had tragically experienced.
For all this, Trump so it has been said, refuses to testify and to defend his words and the call-to-action of his domestic terrorist followers. And given his egotistical self-centered, self-aggrandizing pathetic nature it it certain that he would want to .. yet, clearer minds in the Trump crime organization and family, and legal team (or what is left of it) seem to prevail knowing full well that he is a walking, orally defecating perjurer and liar.
No. This 2nd impeachment of Donald J. Trump will enter the history books as one of the darkest chapters in American history and whether he is convicted, or acquitted.
