On this the 3rd day in the 2nd impeachment of Donald J. Drumpf and in the first hour of the proceedings the House impeachment managers demonstrated and presented compelling evidence that Trump inspired, provoked and in so many words, Tweets and speeches sent his “people” to commit an act of domestic terrorism against the United States of America.

“And if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore … And after this, we’re going to walk down, and I’ll be there with you, we’re going to walk down, we’re going to walk down … So we’re going to, we’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. I love Pennsylvania Avenue. And we’re going to the Capitol, and we’re going to try and give…”
