America will be in uncharted territory when the U.S. Senate meets as soon as next week for the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, a case against the outgoing president that one Democrat preparing for arguments. The Democrats are calling it “shockingly evident.” So, what do you say?
In my view, It well appears the forum has become a bit stagnant with all the same old same old Trump discussions. Although interesting, perhaps we could add a current event, the second impeachment of former President Donald Trump.
Please share your thoughts... Is there evidence that will conclusively prove Trump incited an attack on the Capitol? Will Trump have a fair trial? Will he be convicted? Will, there be any Republican representatives speak on Trump's behalf at the trial?
Why do Democrats feel a second impeachment is needed? Lot's of subject matter to sink our teeth into. Hopefully, we can keep this thread "fresh", discussing the current situation.
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to send the article of impeachment against Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday, launching the start of the former president's trial on a charge of incitement of insurrection over the deadly Capitol riot.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced the schedule Friday.
“There will be a trial,” Schumer said. "It will be a full trial, it will be a fair trial”
Mark Levine said Mrs. Pelosi has always had a "hate-on" for Mr. Trump.
Same for Mr. Schumer, one can surmise.
They certainly have a lot in common, those two.
Mr. Schumer is really quite handsome. as anyone can see:
Shortly after being reelected in 2004, President George W. Bush claimed a mandate for an ambitious second-term agenda and proposed reforming Social Security by allowing workers to redirect a portion of their Social Security withholding into stock and bond investments. Pelosi strongly opposed the plan, saying there was no crisis, and as minority leader she imposed intense party discipline on her caucus, leading them to near-unanimous opposition to the proposal, which was defeated." Wikipedia
And now she wants to impeach a president who is out of office.
I wonder why she is so mean spirited?
Trampling on the constitution. I'm sure they are so proud.
The Democrats have no further uses of the Constitution. They continually bend it to their will. Take their first request after the Jan 6th riot --- They wanted to use the 25 amendments, even though it was clear to have no standing precedent for his removal.
The 25th Amendment, ratified by the states in 1967, declares that upon the removal, resignation, or death of the president, the vice president assumes the presidency.
Commonly referred to as the Disability Clause, this constitutional provision also specifies that if the president is unable to perform the functions of his office, the vice president will serve as acting president.
If the president is unable to determine his own decision-making capacity, it is possible – though this is an untested area of law – that the vice president, independently or in consultation with the Cabinet, would determine if he himself assumes the role of acting president.
Then when they realized Pence would not go against the Constitution. They moved on to Impeach a president that had already left office...
Alan Dershowitz argues that Trump’s rally speech on the day of the Capitol riots was a “constitutionally protected” speech, alls right to free speech.
“It's not a high crime or misdemeanor. What he said was protected by the First Amendment" Alan Dershowitz.
Yet the Dems push ahead with an unconstitutional impeachment. They want to ensure Trump can run again plain and simple, and as always they could care less about the Constitution.
It really is up to "we the people" to stop this kind of corruption in Government. Our voices need to be heard at the state level as well as the Federal level. We have the power of the pen... And most representatives have Facebook pages as well as their own internet pages with contact emails, phone numbers as well as addresses.
The Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump on a charge of inciting the deadly Capitol siege drew its first challenge with Republican senator Senator Rand Paul, a Trump ally, has pledged to force a vote on whether the Constitution allows the Senate to try the former president who is now a private citizen. Paul argues Trump left office on Jan. 20. and that trying a former president would violate the U.S. Constitution.
Rand Paul Tweeted "I will force a vote on whether the Senate can hold a trial of a private citizen."
This should be very interesting...
I think the Senate is flogging a dead horse but they don't realize that they are playing with fire. Impeaching Trump is just vindictiveness and has no meaning but it is going to vitiate the atmosphere and draw battle lines and that is going to be bad for America.
I too feel like the Second impeachment is strengthening America's "Great Divide". One side feasting on red meat to just collect what they feel they have due. The other side becoming infuriated, and more invigorated for the next fight. On one side we have Liberals on the other Conservatives and far-right citizens. Vindictiveness is abhorrent to both.

So far it is obvious President Donald Trump is extremely unlikely to resign in the final few days of his presidency. And VP Pence is equally unlikely to force him out by invoking the 25th amendment of the Constitution, despite calls from the Democrats to do so.So, in the wake of last week’s...

Throughout the last three years, we've seen political maneuvering like never before - the Democrats have spent the entire time trying to undo an election, find a crime where one didn't exist, slander and demonize the President, go after anyone who was associated with the Trump campaign or...

I have been confused as to exactly how to handle a Biden presidency. I consider him a babbling old fool who got rich selling out the United States and his vice president as a female who is a socialist/communist and had to sleep her way into a career. My opinion of both is extremely...

With something so serious, you would think that Pelosi and the rest of her conspirators would bring a level of respectability to their so-called impeachment inquiry by following a strict adherence to the Constitution and rules. No, they have chosen to use their majority to run a kangaroo court....
