For the first time in U.S. history, Congressional Democrats shall impeach a sitting president twice. And now as Speaker Nancy Pelosi prepares to metaphorically kiss President Donald Trump on the lips Michael Corleone style for allegedly inciting his supporters to attack the Capitol Building last week, the Department of Homeland Security has beefed up security for President-Elect Joe Biden’s upcoming inauguration.
There’s no doubt that the Secret Service is prepped for any second wave of insurrectionists. Congress can now probably breathe easier knowing that they’ll be able to complete articles of impeachment without worrying about armed rioters interrupting.
But the thugs whom stormed the Capitol last week did more than just interrupt: they caused five deaths, provoking both Congress and a nation to ensure all guilty parties are held accountable for this criminal action.
Meanwhile, there’s thousands of military members that are literarily sleeping on the floors during this major prep for next week’s inauguration. All due to the numerous terrorist threats from these Trump extremists.
High Crimes and Misdemeanors
These impeachment proceedings will detail how much Trump has abuse the office of the president, through his inaction to adequately protect the Capitol while Congressmen were finalizing Biden’s 306 electoral votes. And you know what else? It wouldn’t surprise me if more than a few Republicans on the Hill are now finger pointing, “That’s your man,” desperately wanting to separate themselves from the Orange Man in the High Tower whom has been existing in his own universe for awhile now.
Uh-huh, and perhaps that’ll be about the most Trump will continue to do until the Constitution evicts him from the Oval Office on January 20, 2021. And judging by his recent antics, the Secret Service might be tasked to forcefully remove him on that day.
More than likely, however, the self-proclaimed “stable genius” will quietly and peacefully leave the White House without further incident. Especially after the Democrats successfully harnessed enough votes to go ahead with an impeachment trial.
The “Yeas” Have it 232 to 197
As of today, the House of Representatives voted 232 to 197 to formerly go ahead with a second impeachment trial of President Trump. Now all Speaker Pelosi has left to do is hand deliver these results over to the Senate.
Also, a conviction would permanently have Trump barred from being able to run for federal office ever again. But hold on. The Constitution’s ensured that Speaker Pelosi still has to wait and see if a minimum of 17 Republican Senators will join in with the 50 Democrat Senators for a two-thirds majority to legally convict Trump.
One Senator Has the Power Now
And Senator Mitch McConnel is that man Speaker Pelosi has to wait for. What? You thought it was going to be easy?
Oh, hell no! McConnel stated he didn’t feel there would be enough time to fast track an impeachment trial before Biden’s inauguration day next week.
Now according to McConnel, there’ll be no impeachment trial until after Biden’s sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. Yeah, he’s made it crystal clear that’s how it’ll go down.
Well, perhaps after the smoke clears, Congress can regain its honor. Maybe the rest of the world will respect the United States as a legitimate republic, instead of the obvious polarized nation she’s become during the Trump Administration.
Yeah, that would be a good thing. One can only hope, right?
So, until next time, Brothers, please stay strong, watch your damn six, and whatever you do, don’t let anybody ph*ck with you!
