Quoted @NatashaBertrand

Exclusive: Legal scholars, including at the Federalist Society, say Trump can be tried and convicted even though he's out of office—rebutting an argument by a growing group of Republican senators who say it would be unconstitutional.

More than 150 legal scholars agree the former President can be tried and convicted.

This is more than just about accountability and justice, it’s about deterrence. Future presidents need to know they cannot use violence to maintain power towards the end of their term.

Final episode of “Off the Rails” .. this one takes you inside the West Wing & Capitol as mob stormed the building .. Senators in secure room watch CNN while Tapper excoriates Cruz/Hawley.. plus Team Trump’s behind scenes wrangling w Twitter & Facebook..

“In the halls of the Capitol, chaos ruled. Just before Lankford learned of the protesters' presence, another senator's body man had come sprinting down one of the hallways outside the chamber, motioning wildly at a group of staffers: Run.”

I love you, Jilly, and I couldn’t be more grateful to have you with me on the journey ahead.

Rep. Liz Cheney on Senate trial: "We all need to take a step back and recognize that the fragility of our system, the survival of our republic, depends upon making decisions that have to do with things like the attack that we saw on January 6 that are separate from party."

Quoted @POTUS

We don't have a second to waste when it comes to getting this virus under control. That's why today, I'll be signing executive actions to expand testing, administer vaccines, and safely reopen schools and businesses.

This is so ... logical.

Quoted @WhiteHouse

President Biden assumes office at a time when our nation is facing crises that demand urgent action. Starting today, the President will take decisive actions to address these challenges, prevent other harms, and restore America's place in the world.

This is so ... rational.

BREAKING: President Biden: "We're going to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord as of today."

Thank you President @JoeBiden for rejoining America in the Paris Climate Accord. From rural farmers to Americans who live in suburbs or cities, climate change affects all of us.

Biden’s inaugural speech was modest, austere, grave, calming, cleansing, inspiring.

Thank you President @JoeBiden for leading America during these challenging times.

Quoted @glennkirschner2

So it’s being reported that Trump will pardon his criminal associate, Steve Bannon, who is pending a felony trial in the Southern District of New York for stealing money from Trump’s supporters via a sham “We Build the Wall” charity.
Corrupt to the end.

One reason the American people fired Donald Trump is that some of Trump’s own supporters figured out the truth: he doesn’t care about them.

Trump had two systems, one for the rich and elite and friends like Steve Bannon; and the other for everyone else.

Though we may be physically separated, we, the American people are united in spirit.

At the end of the day, we are all Americans.

Quoted @kylegriffin1

Trump does not mention the name of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick in his 20-minute farewell remarks.

On #TrumpsLastDay he releases a video where he does not mention the police officer who was murdered in the attack on the Capitol.

Trump also does not say the one sentence that will prevent further political violence and start healing our nation: “the election was not stolen.”

Quoted @MacFarlaneNews

BREAKING: New York man is being charged with "Threatening to murder a United States official", allegedly threatening violence against Members of Congress (including firing squad) and request people bring guns to Inauguration. Jan 8 video threatens "slaughter" of Senators

All Donald Trump has to do to prevent further political violence and start healing our nation is say one simple, truthful sentence: “the election was not stolen.”

Quoted @RebeccaShabad

.@senatemajldr McConnell says on the Senate floor that the rioters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 were "provoked by the president and other powerful people" and "they tried to use fear and violence" to stop the counting of electoral votes.

I agree with @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell.

Quoted @SecPompeo

Woke-ism, multiculturalism, all the -isms — they're not who America is. They distort our glorious founding and what this country is all about. Our enemies stoke these divisions because they know they make us weaker.

Dear @SecPompeo: You described your dad as a proud Italian-American. You attended the Sons of Italy’s 2019 Ambassadors Ball. You practice multiculturalism yourself.

So either you are a hypocrite, or you believe you are stoking divisions by being multicultural.
