Dude, this seriously rivals the greatest sequence of one of my favorite movies. 

Sounds like they're ready to begin the impeachment process tomorrow. Big day.

For all of you who live in a Republican-controlled district, such as myself. Check this handy list from wikipedia. See where your representative and/or senator stood when Congress voted in favor of or against the objections to certifying Biden's electoral votes.

Well, that House Session was... very quick.

There's someone who's gone through Trump's speech from before the insurrection and analysed the whole thing. Bad news it's 200 parts and it doesn't exactly make things look all that better. It's a long one, have some tea with it. Probably a calming type.

Republicans are doubling down

Which is insane. People have already offed themselves in the area because they believe lies like this. It's fine time we stopped this madness.

Well, it's official. Trump has been Impeached for a second time. With 10 Republicans voting in favor, this is also the most Bipartisan Impeachment yet.

Mitch McConnell has refused to reconvene the Senate any time before Tuesday, the 19th, Trump's last day in office. So it's unclear if they will be able to hold both a trial or vote in time.

There's no precedent for this kind of situation, but since Impeachment is a thing, it's likely a trial must be done.

Considering Trump can still be stripped from Ex-Presidential benefits and being barred from running for re-election, there's still merit in doing the trial even after he leaves office.

One term
Two impeachments
Never won the popular vote
Never gained majority support
Lost the house
Lost the Senate. 

So is Trump winning yet? Is he already tired of winning so much?

He's at least making history, the likes of which have never been seen before 😛

And here I was prepared to write a shonen-esque story about how Pence crawled out from under Trump's shadow to attempt to salvage America.  Instead, it went to impeachment.

Just curious; has there ever been anything like what's happening in the U.S. having happened to leaders of other countries? Like, Trump got impeached a second time here, so what I'm wondering is if any other world leaders or high-ranking political officials have been 'impeached' multiple times?

There's definitely gotta be something at least reminiscent of the impeachment process in other nations, so that's what leads me to ask. Well, that, and the obvious fact that Trump got impeached again, which I'm pretty sure is a first for any U.S. president. It's a big yikes, but it's also kinda funny though.

Anyway, there's a lotta history-making stuff going on, and it doesn't feel as odd as I would have expected it to feel.

I think Berlosconi in Italy had the same pattern of corruption and legal issues. I recall old Berlosconi no longer being allowed to run for office some time but I think that one got revoked.

I wouldn't be surprised if this "abuse" has to do with the election, the impeachment, or something like that.

It might be stuff that has to do with when he was VP, but that's like 4 years late. I'm not sure how impeachable that whole Ukraine thing would be by now if that's what I suspect it's about.
