https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215119936

Day Four of Impeachment Trial - The Greater Darkness and Lesser Light
https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215097988

“K McCarthy had convo during riot. President said it was ANTIFA. McCarthy said Trump supporters. Trump said these people more upset than YOU are.” McCarthy has shared it since then…moved to admit in evidence…DTs counsel no further motions…it is in the record…
Will they pursue House Managers no objection to admit evidence..
Dispense with live witnesses…approved by both…

Closing
RASKIN: DT further inflamed insurgents. Quoting DT. Incitement. Conduct perpetuates his continuing offense and intent to incite… Mobsters insurrectionists … DTs argument laughable…DT refused to come said falsely accused. I would come. True of 100 senators he hopes…the former supporters tried to cancel out Cheney speaking of cancel culture…it was rejected…you can stand up against bullies….Cheney a hero resisted retaliatory cancel culture 145-61. Ben Franklin enemy of fanaticism: WRONG always growing ALL WRONG and RIGHT COMES RIGHT AT LAST.”
Don't make yourselves sheep... Tom Paine light must overcome dark...

A landslide victory against fraud and corruption. His judges (8) and 60 others said no cheat...DT wanted 11780 votes, leaned on GEORGIA, Raffenvberg got death threat...DTs people said cut it out someone would get hurt. RAFFENB said he VOTED FOR TRUMP. Witmer and mob...

As we celebrate president's day another who would say come to DC for "A WILD TIME"?

The PB came...DT did not want to be too close to the action, so did not lead the rioters. Summoned assembled lit math of mob.. Unleashed unparalleled violence on heroic cops.

cops Eugene Goodman saved the day...while DT was mad no one shared his delight...as the mob beat cops, hunted down the VP and Pelosi. Bravery and courage of hero cop and people in the room (Senate chamber)...Dereliction of duty and central to insurrection inextricably linked...

he reveled in their pain and knew it was combustible moment with mob ready, aimed down Penn Ave said steal coming, attacked, disrupted, injured and Killed people, failed to defend Senate and Congress...if that is not an impeachable offense what is...

Ciccolini: No one says he directed everything that day, but he incited the mob and foresaw what he did…DT refuses to come testify...declined..we all know anyone of us would...

Defense had access to all materials...their claim that eb=vidence manufactured...tweets from public archive all correct...evidence manipulated? why did they not object when given these facts...

DT tweeted "we have had enough..." By 2:12 mob went in ...all saw VP whisked out on live TV...public saw this in real time...defense says DT had no idea his VP evac'd for safety with 1000s coming, cops overwhelmed, that DT knew less than people, that SS did not alert the President...as violent mob assaulted capitol...with each minute more inconcie=eiveable... 2:10 on mob breached and yelled HANG MIKE PENCE...

Facts undisputed... VP there with family in danger HANG MIKE PENCE with a noose outside...TWEET read aloud n]by bullhorn...Trump further incites mob to target VP.

Part of indisputable conduct...2:26 PM VP evac'd... calls Tommy Tuber says delay vote...Tommy said they are taking VP out I have to go... Then mob shouts at them... Hang the traitor...DT knew and did nothing...we since learned he also spoke t McCarthy (in record now)... DT said fix it “K McCarthy had convo during riot. President said it was ANTIFA. McCarthy said Trump supporters. Trump said these people more upset than YOU are.” or you get what you deserve... he did this attacking McCarthy;s request ignoring Tommy Tuberville...he chose to ignore...phone call ended screaming match as the mob broke in windows of McCarthy's office...his only motive selfish need to keep power...Pence doesn't agree that DT cared as he never heard from DT for a week...DEFENSE objects as that is new INFO...

CRIMINALS killed cops than life of McCarthy...DT offers no arguments...his lawyers ignored the timeline, lied and said DT knew nothing...DT willfully betrayed, violated oath, left Eugene Goodman alone and us...our case includes dereliction of duty his failure as Commander in chief...

he was not furious sad shocked it was reported he was delighted, praised mon to McCarthy, evidence of intent...further incited as he failed to help...spread lie about VP. Encouraging and provoking derelection of duty... DT: "these are things and events that happen when great patriots have selection stolen unceremoniously and unfairly."

I REC'd 5th on my own thread..
POINT of ORDER says DEFENSE House GQP managers... debate is not in order.... voting

Randy Rainbow says he is ready to testify and has the outfit!


Worthless time waste to vote on allowing the testimony that VP wasn't contacted by DT for days to see if he was OK... THIS IS WHY WE ALL HATE LAWYERS PROCEDURE SEEMS MORE IMPORTANT THAN JUSTICE Mikie Lee is forcing them to vote...to try and get the words taken down....

McCaskell reaming the Defense handlers. MSNBC calling her Scoop McCaskell. [b]WELL THEN I AM EFFING SUPERSCOOP GO.
LOL.
THEY LOST THE NEW EVIDENCE THAT DT never contacted VP for a week stricken... Is the other part about McCarthy call stricken too? SHRIEEEEEEEEK.... at a lawyer...

Dereliction of duty...incited, directed them to action...He never accepted outcome...even before the VOTE...RIGGED RIGGED over and over before... Only way we will lose...most fraudulent ever we will not let it happen, fraud ... TREMENDOUS AN HORRRRRRRRIBLE fraud he said never yield backdown or surrender never give up it concede...BEFORE THE VOTE...stop the steal...never take back country without fighting like hell...deliberate effort by Trump... he did not know every detail but he saw body armor, weapons, he knew it would be violent...he knew his MAGAs from rally violence, the caravan that attacked the Biden campaign bus in Texas...he was warned by own MAGAs who planned online...Law enforcement FBI warned him...he said FIGHT LIKE HELL OR YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE A COUNTRY ANYMORE... Showed clip of attack on bus with DTs War like music...tweeted to his base. They started chanting DESTROY THE GOP... imnsurrectionists did not come on own as defense suggests...they are being prosecuted...DEFENSE throws them under bus, but DT clled them to come...they said it was for him his direction...if Congress illegally certifies, we must stop, slash kill, commander NG if they overwhelm Capitol cops...

Insurrectionists did not hide. SELFIES... films live stream...after all said they thought they had been sent byDT, they expressed anger at being duped, tricked...
JUST THE BEGINNING they say...

DEFENSE OBJECTS NEW EVIDENCE VIDEO STRICKEN because of GQP SLIMEBAG BOTTOMFEEDING LAWYERS ALL PEOPLE HATE> THAT JUSTICE IS NOT AS IMPORTANT AS PROCESS.

ASSHOLE GQP saying they never saw the clips in record but they never looked, refused to show up in chamber, edoodled, scratched their effing balls like adolescents in math class... THE BLUE DOGS ATE THEIR HOMEWORK.


MSNBC McCAskell: they are arguing technical ways to slow arguments...muck it up as much as possible...DTs lawyer is an ambulance chaser gumming up works...

DEAN: THIS TRIAL HAS BEEN A TRIAL TO ME... Dereliction, insurrectionists listening...she did not know extent of inciting of violence... many were also listening.... steps aways from all but for bravery who protected us... cops, those who cleaned glass, floors, trashed chamber (A KOREAN AMERICAN JANITOR)

PAST IS FUTURE and will be remembered.... As I said in my essay yesterday... I hope some read it in Congress as I worked to get it to them...

NEGUSE: Reminds us of the evidence and says DT offers distractions and excuses, no defense....he's a private citizen, that all say FIGHT...distractions why they do not prevent in any way conviction...every pres is one day private citizen...impeachment would not be there if criminal justice could deal with it....powers abused can cause great damage must be dealt with in Senate...unwise to say only remedy is private court...not the framers intent,,,not a criminal trial...he is charged with Constitutional offense...relevant question would the farmers see inciting a mob an impeachable offense. Who really thinks that answer is no? Due process? They invited him repeatedly....His defense is to show other politicians saying fight....in those montages is any of those speeches culminating in violent insurrection...

Neguse says he's youngest and still idealistic , but read history books know the Senate defined history, 13th Amendment passed in that room outlawing slavery, 1964 civil rights act, WW2 from this chamber, always risen to occasion when it mattered most.. why people aspire to be us as guiding light, a north star.. . People in Senate rose to occasion...

The Senate overrode ending Apartheid sanctions during Reagan...transcended party above country ... not doing so too great... one of those moments... even Congreess members only allowed on that floor without permission...the insurrectionists desecrated the chamber , sacred ground... America at its best...will go down in history...convict DT and defend republic...stakes could not be higher...

RASKIN: FAmilies put in danger who came to witness history...but some said to kids you might not see parent when they went to DC that day... His daughter was patriotic. Knew the danger and agreed parents needed to act...

who was tased and beaten begged for life invoked his 4 kids...he is now betraying the mob...and there are 100s to be prosecuted who will say goodbye to their kids, and DT has gone silent after inciting them...he will not say why this is the Const thing to do...trial about who we are not him...second chance with truth...DT ran over every other branch of gov, usurp people's choice.. Clips almost unwatchable Cheney: greatest betrayal in history of country... Officer called "N" word 15 times, said "Is this America?"

28 minutes reserved.... Sorry I cannot unbold...

DEFENSE BOTTOMFEEDING Van Someone or other the ambulance chaser: I will not talk so long...House managers mess. Don't want my closing ruined because it is pretty good...they did not give me evidence, wrong evidence (on a technicality not for being untrue)...they did not once mention law...first amendment or due process for my CLIENT (the criminally insane POS) Basic rule you close on facts but they would not present MY FACTS...HOW DARE THEY HAVE A CASE???? LIES ARE NOT BEING RECORDED BY ME...............................................................................................................................
TRANSCRIBE YOUR OWN LIES DT AND GQP REPUBLIQAN SHITEHEELS...

TELL US HOW MUCH DEMOCRATS HAVE LIED. ) v. Donald J. Trump's 30k+ LIES. IN OFFICE
FACT CHECKED FOR 4 YEARS......


AGAIN: ANTIFA ATE MY HOMEWORK...

CANCEL DEMOCRATS HE SAYS. That man is EVIL.

MOBS are attacking violent anarchists BLM and ANTIFA conveniently the villains of DC...

Alleged brief delay of DT seen as bad but Dems did nothing as cities erupted in violence (I CAN"T FU*KING BREATHE AT THIS FU*KER's calling reactions to cop murder in black communities is equivalent) I predicted this was what they would do...Always blame the POC...blame the alleged ANTIFA mixed race guy with a Pround Boy Brother....say the poor TRAITOR trash got the idea from the angry black man...FU*K you racist white cracker.

BANNON, STONE AND ROVE wrote his words. Believe it.
DO NOT FALL FOR THE OKEY DOKEY.
2000 Brooks Brothers' Riot Florida...

SMEAR RINSE REPEAT Yeah I recognize hypocrisy when I hear it...

I know what DRECK smells like... FOX NEWS LOGIC... his whole case can be summed up: POC are to blame.... Pull that thread folks and you get a pile of naked GQP...

DT refused to take an eviction notice now acts like he wasn't ASKED to move. Ths is my argument... Free. the kind DT can afford... Let DT concede on TV today... CRICKETS, right?

Back to the DEFENSE: LIES LIES LIES LIES... (summary)...Anyone who wants to go to jail for DUI, HIRE THIS GUY...

I know this document will be part of the DU record for 100 years!

NEVER FORGET MARCO RUBIO IS TWEETING KANGAROOS IN THE SENATE CHAMBER WHILE SENATORS DELIBERATE THE MOST HISTORIC CRIME AGAINST THE UNION:



That is what I found when I posted a link to this thread on TWITTER. MARCO RUBIO flippantly posting EMOJIS of KANGEROOS...

57 Heroes 43 Traitors. He is acquitted. To create any new mayhem. The most criminal president in history...


THANK YOU TO DUers FOR THE HEARTS...and Thanks to all who worked day in and day out...to post the evidence, amplify the truth, and never stopped. Who put your country first...
you know who your are...

Day Four of Impeachment Trial - The Greater Darkness and Lesser Light

Impeachment Day Five
https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215105654

Impeachment Day Three notes and links to articles
https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215091279

Just blatantly political vengeance…divorced from facts…no thinking person could seriously believe his speech ws incitement to violence…nothing in text encouraged condoned unlawful action…he only told them to exercise rights patriotically and peacefully…slanderously said DT tried to “interfere with counting orf EC…” OH Horseshit.. The lawyer Vander Veen makes me puke…just wanted universal ID, proof of citizenship, not scraping ballots…just proper civic process…went to courts…OH TRUMP IS AN HONEST MAN YOU STUPID VOTERS…HRC claimed Russia stole the election.

A montage of Black Congress men and women objecting in 2016…and 2000 Dems went to SCOTUS as designed…DT was peaceful…gathering was supposed to be peaceful…DT spoke at 100s of rallies no riotous behavior…celebrating rule of law…constitution…law and order…clips of mad dems wanting to punch them in the face.…

Extremists hijacked DTs peaceful groups. ANTIFA guy arrested first. Released (that was the one with the PB brother who Seattle BLM already ID'd as a provacateur) Law enforcement courageous, but lacked good security…violent rioters BLM in the summer…

Just as I predicted… "ANTIFA ate my homework" (a tweet someone made)

“If you don’t fight like hell” is ordinary language in politics…he did not incite but the Dems and national news media did says this lying snake oil salesman…called DT a Russian spy (asset), Pelosi called him imposter and traitor…Last summer in Portland BLM attacked sustained attack…Pelosi called the cops stormtroopers…”

When GOP scared a Dem said cry me a river…Dems should be impeached… censured… expelled…not DT…he is law and order. I need a break to swear $@^%#&(#*((

Violence looting ges against all DT said…hatred of left for trump driven them to skip due process and urgency, waited to gain control of Senate… Catch 45… DT had no opportunity to review charges due process…denial of opportunity to test the integrity of evidence before barring him from office disenfranchise…

Why did we never see the films ahead of time…Pelosi called for investigation 9/11 style to determine causes…then how can they be blaming TRUMP…OH SCREW THIS mountebank and charlatan Schoenboober (whoever)…SQrew a Non…lies about the TWEETS now…So no evidence… pretending that TWEETS are not Trump…or lied on tweets...need to swear again #$^%*&)*((}*^%$#@#

Oh "calvary not cavalry" we now must believe….ASSHOLE lying I saw the tweets…Peaceful and patriotic…DT butter couldn’t melt in his mouth … he is the day’s hero…Democrats incited the riot compared to DTs optimistic patriotic words...the people misspelled tweets. The Calvary is coming? LOL. Assholes.

Charlottesville lie…fine on all sides…protestors there to protect their statues…Neo-Nazis bad but others bad on other side in black with weapons…but Neo-Nazis had a permit...two sides of story...Fight primary members of Congress, not attack…TURN THE TABLES...always our fault...

A bunch of clips of Dems saying they'd like to punch DT in face.... Me too moment...The Bully Bunions pull out campaign speeches and find times Dems say FIGHT...

FALSE EQuivalence...FIGHT OF OUR LIVES...found every instance of saying the word FIGHT over and over...all calmly stated use of the word FIGHT...not screamed spittle inflected use of the word as DT et al did on 1/6... PROPAGANDA 101....Moment of hate....Orwellian....This is Bannon-level BS...

NOTE: Politics of the English Language...by Orwell,,,how to use words as propaganda..to create reality...

BACK to blaming big scary BLM...anger incited by right...
500 instances of Dems saying FIGHT...while DT is an angel of calvary...DT claims an election stolen…but Dems did in the first impeachment (uh I believe CIA and FBI supported this charge)...

They depict HRC, Pelosi and Maxine over and over...baiting the base.... Orwell's 10 minutes of hate...

Dems are being smeared...rinse repeat ad nauseum...will these shitass lawyers from their shithole country STFU already? I almost would prefer the GQP managers the 4 Horsemen of the Dumopolypse... Democratic HATRED of POOR innocent rightwing groups...

Allowed to second guess his intent...go after poor pathetic victim presidents like DT.Context matters. Inflammatory from both sides mostly our side.... Not whataboutism...Democrats want to "punch" DT. Over and over they depict this....BAIT BAIT BAIT ...Use all the instances that Democrats upset by DTs crimes to suggest DEMS are BAD.

NOTE: JUST what KKK and Neo-Nazis tell their followers to do....bait bait until someone gets mad, then smash their face with steel-toed boots...We have seen this tactic before I CAN'T BREATHE. Stand your Ground...when does this bottom-feeding lawyer tell us DT was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize...

No one can impeach if you did nothing wrong.... Now lawyer saying the 180+ constitutional lawyers saying DT guilty threatening his job by speaking...partisan law professors are bullies...Biggest pity party ever heard... is he going to get teary-eyed next? They want DT here without lawyers NOTE: He would be better off...Recall Rudy at 4 Seasons Landscape Co.

SQrew A Scoundrel...is using Civil rights voting intimidation as a defense of DT??? Oh the shamelessness...

NOTE: DAMN NOW I WANNA PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE...)(&(^)^%$%#^#$^&*)(

He is bringing up draft card burning to defend DT..."Klaatu barada nikto" Attack TOBAR ATTACk.

NOTE: If you ever rob a bank, call this guy for your lawyer....he'll prove the earth is flat...
I may have to stop...he's making me want to punch myself in the face now....

Free speech now...is he going to evoke Berkley Free Speech movement? Patty Hearst? The Symbionese Liberation Army? Quote the Chicago 7? We are in LALA land...

His figurative speech no different Democrats used about BIG LIE of stolen election. Hypocrisy. 2016 and 2020 the same...We accused poor pitiful DT...he did opposite of asking peaceful action at the rally...(except he screamed it like a rabid dog). OMG we edited poor old DT? He only said FIGHT 20 times but he smiled when he said it.....made freaking jokes...

NOTE: I rec'd my own thread. Such a bad Democrat...

Our indignation is false, he says. BOTHSIDEISM...NOTE: Democrats use the term in calm mannered way....except HRC who they play over and over... Their tone totally even keeled. DTs tone like a general exhorting his rabble to battlecry a lynch mob -- a spittle screamed exhortation by DT -- by Rudy -- Don Jr. -- BY RUSH --by Lou Dobbs...

NOTE: Oh thank god I get a break from this horseshit...ALL I can say about their skills as filmmakers with the FIGHT montage, they are no Lincoln Project or Midas Touch.Tapper called it a Sean Hannity MIXTAPE...

NOTE: We will hear FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT until our teeth rattle...A shameful disgrace of a defense...I agree with Trump this time -- I wouldn't pay these jokers either.

to be cont.

They clipped every example of a Dem saying fight since BIRTH OF A NATION.Many are fighting for health care fighting for social...fighting for voters, not screeching to a lynch mob.
They sped up the word over and over 100s of times. That is propaganda 101. Ask Orwell. Ask that neo-nazi shithead Bannon the Putin operative who with Rove is even now at DT's side.
Orwell said you can change meanings of words this way, create reality with words.

He is promising that it is only going one more hour....G'damn me.

Now DT denounces his base calls them "those criminals..." NOTE: Guess they don't expect to solicit donations or get votes from that group again....most pro cop, anti mob pres in history...so that MOB not his real supporters? Hatred? Politics made that part of dynamic...

BAIT BAIT BAIT TURN THE TABLES... Trump stands for Law and Order while Maxine Waters, Pelosi and Biden want to fight.... Dems used selective editing???? WTF???

I am starting to only hear the sound that adults make in Charlie Brown cartoons: WAWAWAWAWAWAWAWA....

Easy to see why their base is so ignorant. Blind leading clueless...

NOTE: Had to change title to Day Four...Wishfuk thinking....Trump saying his base " stronger smarter and gosh darn I like you..." His disdain for violence, his words misunderstood... Now he steals from Stuart Smalley?

Stark contrast between honest Dems and this Toe-Jam leaning on a podium...(not Pelosi's)..

REPEAT A LIE OFTEN ENOUGH AND LOUD ENOUGH AS STALIN AND GOEBBELS TAUGHT THEM...


Violent criminals already assembling...he called for peaceful rally...(NOTE: FBI says cellphones show rallies marched from DT's speech to riot)...

PRE-PLANNED ASSAULT...GET READY FOR THEM TO BLAME OUR SIDE....BLM came disguised as potbelly MAGAs. Not Trump's riot, bad people did it.... TRUMP MERCH sells out at BLM and ANTIFA rallies, right?

When DT asked Georgia to FIND votes, he meant real ones. Signature verification in public...Not blackmail at all... FIND is now going to be finely parsed...

Why don't you want to FIND means investigate not create votes... How long before he says he only asked the mob to go FIND the Colonel's Secret Recipe?

Dems trying to disenfranchise DT...take his rights...eliminate a political opponent, subvert will of voters. Promised UNITY, Covid relief...oh they promise to deliver us from their BLATHER. YAY. criminalizing viewpoints....

NOTE: Constitutional Cancel Culture? How about Constitutional Consequences?
GQP must resist urge to do this when they are in power again...
He's going to finally STFU.

Q&A
Did DT incite the mob?
Castro: DT assembled, led the mob...spread LIE after LIE...months of grooming...our vote is our vote...DT call to action 18 days prior...for 18 days directed the rage... to stop transfer...fight to the death... extremists amped up, primed...FBI warned of weapons...he tweeted 34 times to get ready to Stop the Steal... Storm was coming...At Save Ame3rica rally...Rudy said TRIAL BY COMBAT...DT pointed at Capitol and ordered FIGHT LIKE HELL....

Graham/Cruz question: Does politician raising bail for rioters encourage more rioting. A: YEs.

Sen. Warnock Ques: Is it T or F months leading to 1/6 that courts rejected argument of vote. Raskin: A: True. He has right to go 61 straight cases. All swing states. Nothing to overturn election or irregularities...intimidating and bullying, summoning assembling mob crossed over...

Collins/ MurkowskiGOP Ques: When did DT learn of breach of Capitol? When did he try to stop the rioting? A: Don't know...Dec. 21st...but no investigation. (using the Catch 45 argument again) ... no evidence... hearsay... process denied. (SO NO ANSWER).

Rosen Dem Ques: 1/6 antisemitic PB lay siege, one in Camp Auschwitz shirt, did he know his rhetoric could incite... A: Plaskett says he not only tolerated but refused to condemn...cultivated actual violence by these groups...told them to stand by, he tweeted of video I love Texas after car caravan tried to run bus off road, burned churches he said we have not begun to fight... the pattern of practice encouraging never condemning...all showed at 1/6 he organized... cultivates, and they were violent. Months of grooming the rioters... to stop the Senate from counting EC...called Cavalry not Calvary...he knew they were armed violent ready to fight...he knew violence they were capable of....DISQUALIFIED.

Scott and one from Tenn GOP Q: 200 at the Capitol held accountable, so isn't it political showtrial to shame DT and 74m. voters? A: These people descecrated the bldg...he is no longer in office...just to embarrass him...to stop him from holding in the future...

Markey and Duckworth Dem Q: WEhen did pres learn of breach and what steps did he take to stop violence? A: President has intell, reports, knew severity of threat and knew Cap cops in fight for life. He did not send NG. Why not do anything 2 hours...what time did he not condemn just ignore.

Romney and Collins GOP Q for both: when DT sent Tweet 2:24 PM, was he aware he had been removed for safety? Dems A. Said Pence did not have courage to stop count...everyone knew LIVE TV the mob had weapons, chaos, people begging for help...he did not help. did not acknowledge...no dispute Tommy Tuberville called DT and said to president they just too VP out I have to go. VP and family still in danger... GOP A: No. Did not know...he is lying that he repeatedly asked then to go home...TOO MUCH TOO LITTLE TOO MUCH TOO LATE.

Klobachar and Casey Dem Q: You relied on past impeachment cases, if we do not convict what message sent to future president and congress? A: Incited armed attack to overturn election thwart count...Cops unprotected. Congress unprotected...calling families...while people on FBI watchlist rampaged...even desecrated Lewis's statues. World is watching...standing by standing ready...they showed black women over and over to try and rouse the crowd... Define who we are....everyone has right to vote defines as country...today an historic moment.

Lee GQP: Does it allow impeaching former officials...A. not allowed...

Cali Dem Q: Big lie undermine election built on lies and CT. How did these lies lead to radicalization? A: Months of inciting...to make them angry...purpose.. of saying rigged, stolen...his victory is stolen...74m voted for him. We all want to win but he did opposite of what is expected...he did not let people decide, he wanted to whip up mob last chance...took over Senate and almost HOuse. A woman who believed died. A CAp cop died that day, 2 took own lives...do we believe this is OK to do all over again? Dangerous Never seen before...
Fight to the death quote DT made...

Cramer GOP Q: Could Senate disqualify a sitting president...and not remove. GOP A: No. Attacks Castro instead of answering...I had 2 days to look at evidence...but he knew the president didn't say said Dems would fight to death...(so rhetorical?)...misrepresented!
DEM A: Irrelevant t question asked... 8 convicted, 3 disqualified historically MAJORITY rule can disqualify. Or 2/3 to convict....

Markey Dem Q: Did they raise objections to votes after insurrection after asked to make objections to delay certification? A: ...no one had stormed before, did not know how to do...due to his actions. Chaos. Reforming EC but no violence...

GOP Q: Has Potus tolerated antisemitic behavior? Or defended Israel? A: The fictional speech needs to stop...you are doctoring evidence...

Bernie/Warren Q: House prosecutors say over and over he repeated BIG LIe. are prosec right? A: he lost in court 61 times. Mitch said so too. System determined. EC has spoken. Sometimes disputes. Trump would not stop. Peaceful Trans of power.. Why we are here. GOP A: My judgment irrelevant...but I think irrelevant if he won or not. Riot, incitement all.
House managers will not answer that questions...He wanted peaceful patriotic protests. Zero evidence he did anything else. Premeditated. He didn't do it.

Johnson GOP Q: 1/6 predictable or foreseeable? Why didn't cops stop it? Turn down request for NG... Gop A: Cap cops didn't ask DT for help. Need investigation...have evidence... Dem A: If you have evidence we wish to see. DT had access to all info...he knew...undiluted. 2 hours after attack. Mayor could not deploy. DT did not tell anyone he was sending help...did not defend the capitol of the country...

Moran Dem Q: If pres spins lie and stokes fury and invites violent groups to interrupt count, fails to defend, send help and express glee, is he guilty of inciting if he says after be peaceful Dem A: Lie...endangered all workers, senators, cops...he stoked it, then later said stay peaceful...never said stop. 1100 words, peaceful once...fight 20 times...he incited them...rigged he said...if you rob a bank and yell respect private prop after not defensible.

..

Cruz GOP Q : legal: foreseeable, willfully, encourage...new standard? Did Harris incite too? Dem A: Raskin said she did not incite or encourage violence...Nothing to compare to never had violent attempt to overthrow government...they say it's appropriate behavior. We say no. Get real we know this is what happened...Lansing...MAGA 2 , president cheering at it. How gullible do they think we are? GOP A: Appropriateness as a standard...Legal law Brandenv=berg. Explicit or implicit. They don't get past that. No evidence. Imminent use of language incites...Harris protected inciting in other instances.

Murray Dem Q: 6:01 these are things when election victory stripped away from patriots. adding they go home. How relevant to his guilt? A: Pres didn't call guard...did not try to stop he had time to do something...hours went by...he said remember forever...commemorates it...he foresaw. got what you deserved for trying to take it from me. Hold accountable or possible continuation...we recall brave cops, dead ones, devastation done....

Lousiana GOP Q: Accidently erased section... But why didn't president help Pence? GOP A: No time to investigate...A Dem: They had DT to ask. He refused to appear so in civil court it means guilt...

Manchin DEM Q: was he aware...A DEM: was aware but did not care.... offered lawyer, chance to testify... refused... thus according to civil court is admitting guilt

Valasco GOP Q: House managers not required to provide a defendant help. A GOP: New House precedent not to offer due process...Any can be denied process...no lawyer...got information the 9th...(3 days after 1/6)...

Blumenthal DEM: does defense meet standard of proof? A: 140+ law profs. A slur...prominent across spectrum...said their arguments frivolous... His guilt..incited. it did cause it...watched on TV turns on heat on Pence, when he starts crying about it...The free speech rights of klansmen to burn a cross is standard of proof they are using...

GOP Q: Did they contradict own conclusion by showing attack 20 minutes before end of speech? GOP A: Yes...Brandenberg is an incitement case...not elected officials...protection for speech...not like fire chief or cop...does speech incite lawlessness. No. Majority will impeach you if you do this...


Cardin D Q: Respond to last ques. Did not want to swear in Bond. SNCC sworn in. DT violated law of office,. DT' doing. He inflamed to retain power and be pres. verturn election...

Told FIGHT like hell…Sandford would not be there without president…lawyers told by clients…does not exonerate…Ryan…interviewed only doing what president asked her to do….VIDEO…”following pres…doing as asked. DT requested it…” If it comes down to war we will be there…” “Digital soldiers need to come…violent racist group…many Goodwin showed PB.. STAND BACK STAND BY…Goodwin tweeted with DT photo on his TWITTER….the PBs used it as marching orders…awaiting orders. Goodwin stood ready as others broke in…he’s in bldg…..when it became clear DT left them they felt duped…Chandley (Q-Shaman) left note only matter of time…justice coming… he came at behest of president as he told FBI…Chandley there at invite of pres. His lawyer said to Cuomo CNN. His lawyer said DT asked him…many post arrest said this.

*
Many express regret…FIRE BAT SIGNAL…Dominic Pozzola PB first in…COME ON DOWN… HE INVITED US DOWN…his lawyer they were invited…who lit fuse? Because he told them too. Stand Back Stand By Stop Steal….Trump sent us…
7 dead 150 injured…pain to Americans…the world…all charged being held accountable…leader must also be held accountable…insurrectionists said they were invited…

RASKIN: HE did what DT told them to do. Spent months cultivating, riled them up, ready to undertake most dangerous mission…he knew it would incite violence…he knew from extremist groups’ comminications, Twitter, mobilized them…praise galvanized encouraged, roadtested his actions…insurrection most violent so far…his practice of incitement… some took place during…long predates…uniquely intolerable by POTUS…WS and extremist groups # 1 threat says FBI…begged him to stop them…civil war..race war.. wanted to incite for his side…Clips of incitement successfully to assault opponents (from his rallies) …he asked them to attack any protestors…
*
If someone throws tomato, knock the hell out of them…I will pay legal feess…they drag aprotestor at a rall across floor…KNOCK THE HELL OUT OF THEM…sanctioned violence…praising supporters violent toward black guy…he swung audience hit back..very appropriate…

Michigan he incited violence…levelled attacks…against Witmer…DT criticized her handling of Covid…I LOVE Michigan yet your governor blames all for own ineptitude. April 2020: Liberate Michigan… supporters stormed bldg. then…aggressive…demanding to be let in…Shouted “Heil Hitler” “Shouted lock her up” Camo, armed siege…dress rehearsal… preview of coming insurrection…DT refused to condemn them…called their cause righteous…said Witmer needed to GIVE A LITTLE TO THEM PUT OUT FIRE MAKE DEAL WITH THESE GOOD PEOPLE…endangered her life. 2 weeks later they stormed again, brought a noose…chanting…DT continued to assail her for re-opening Michigan…OCT 8 13 arrested by FBI to storm statehouse start war, abduct and assassinate her.
SNATCH AND GRAB. Organaized…Considered Molotov cocktails (used on 1/6 a man with enough for eleven )…Fear manifested by bullets said these extremists…he further inflamed them…
*

Vilified her, took credit for saving her, blamed ANTIFA…

Mocked her at rallies…our people helped her out with her problem…my people…
*
Obvious intent…violent harm he unleashed..not a radical break from peaceful disposition…his MO.
Ready to fight like hell…most loyal followers in history…knew hardcore would assault officials lay siege…violence block transfer of power…we hear you and love you…
*
Would he ever stop if he went in again your lives the cops your families…he said his conduct totally appropriate if he gets in again no one to blame but ourselves.
Lieu No remorse said DT and appropriate…untrue…wrong destructive wrong unAmerican… must hold DT accountable…not patriotic cannot follow in his footsteps…did not condemn the attack even once…not once…he says they are special he loves them…WE LOVE YOU..REMEMBER DAY FOREVER…not a man who showed remorse…took another full day to condemn attack.. then pre-recorded video 30 hours later condemns them..says they broke law and would pay…adds lie…says he deployed NG…not true two hours after…after 5. Pentagon had released list consulted before they were dep[loyed…DT not on list…as a vet I find it dishonorable…shameful…it did not say any acceptance of responsibility…
*

Took DT 3 days to respond…never paid respects to the dead capitol cop…he showed no remorse or took no resp…he intended to do so…he was asked and said THEY ANALYZED MY SPEECH and ALL THOUGHT IT TOTALLY APPROPRIATE…lack of remorse…defiance…he said he’d do it again…he and future ones, run, lose, inflame, incite…attack appropriate…one week later he condemns violence…no place in country and movement…he needed to mean these word…he was not forceful or loud, takes no responsibility, does not say one sentence would stop future violence – election not stolen…still hasn’t why we have NG patrolling still…forced to acknowledge…behind closed doors still refused to acknowledge, refused transition, inauguration, focused ire on GOP.
Clips showing even shaken GOP saying he abandoned sacred OATH (MITCH), Graham others condemned it…DARKEST HOUR IN OUR NATION’S HISTORY. Mattis said mob rule, blamed DT, John Kelly WHAT HAPPENED AS DIRECT RESULT OF POISONING MINDS…WITH LIES … echoed by former DT official after official…CLIPS…Blood on hands….

No regrets, wrong signal…broke solemn oath…enough enough…he can contest of course but he was dishonorable unAmerican caused deaths…spread lies…told base it was acceptable…why he is so dangerous…that any who come after can do anything…lack of remorse…impeach disqualification is about future…lack of remorse means causing future havoc…he can he even lose…I am not afraid of him running…but he put lives in grave danger…Gonzalez: says he abandoned post…BIPARTISAN IMPEACHMENT vote in history…what others said: Done never seen before…role insurrection undeniable…direct threat to future f Democracy…make clear how we feel…convict… not only the beginning…


More discussion of DTs conduct…Retweeting Griffin exhorting the death of Democrats…a man arrested…still praised by DT…organizers, PB, Oathkeepers, the mob all afraid after…stood down…insurrection sequel prevented by NG. No access…peaceful path price…dimming of freedom…but inciting violence has inspired them….new coalitions…mob brought differing ideological goals together to attack and undermine…they all talked to each other…celebrated on social media… Nick Fuentes…he said what can we do besides kill them…he was there…glorious he said because DT supporters…provocateur…also Boogaloo Boys “working overtime to capitalize lead to more…PB members bragged “People saw what we can do…want in…” Enrique Torrio…boon for recruitment said Chris Hill…Holt an expert said far-right extremist the first stab in greater revolution…racial and ethnic tension will grow motivate attacks… in addition DVEs incited to go after racial-ethnic, LGBTQ, etc Elements seen…hurled racial slurs…Auschwitz guy…a lot of racism…racial slurs…trying to survive said Capitol cop…cried let it out processed it…

Cippolini: The fear staffers felt…hiding, sounds of window panes popping…officers 81 +65 city cops maimed, eyes gouged, beaten, stun gun, officers that said scarier than time in combat…verbally denigrated them..when casting vote honor them…their deaths and sacrifices…he even mourns the loss on other side…DT mob defiled sacred bldg., statuary hall rotunda…honored place….clips of wreckage…

Cippolini: The fear staffers felt…hiding, sounds of window panes popping…officers 81 +65 city cops maimed, eyes gouged, beaten, stun gun, Injuries concussions, bats poles clubs lost tip of finger, spinal injuries ribs, gouged eyes, death…officers that said scarier than time in combat…verbally denigrated them..when casting vote to honor them…their deaths and sacrifices…he even mourns the loss on other side…DT mob defiled sacred bldg., statuary hall rotunda…honored place….clips of wreckage…vandals destruction, ripped down Lewis’s sign, destroyed the speaker’s office…to stop the steal… but still we prevailed….it was attack on those elected to preserve democracy…


CASTRO: Laptop missing … Incited…preserve and protect his oath violated…sophisticated military meant to protect strongest most expensive.. and yet they breached th sacred place…Congress declared war eleven times! Wow. History made Civil rights women…The cops must find what was stolen, destroyed etc. Pelosi’s laptop, Security breaches. Intell agencies have to search …classified info breached… saw a dress rehearsal that capitol can be taken…saw how easy… vulnerability….all gave bldgs security away…..quotes Rubio saying it!
Chinese posted Capitol to compare Hong Kong democracy movement to USA insurrectionists…Russia said Democracy over…this is the last… the bottom…America has lost right to set course or impose on others…using DT’s incitement…

Stand up for rule of law it can’t stand up for itself…


NEGUSE: 1st amendment will be their argument…free speech…indignantly say 1st amendment protects this. NOOOOO…followers stop the steal as we were counting the votes…they were primed for violence…in the middle of that explosive situation he created powederkeg over months…he struck the match to the bldg. and us…If you choose insurrection over the constitution, nothing left to say…

Raskin: Classic case of incitement…1st amendment no defense…Brandenberg defense…DT does not go to jail just is disqualified…no one protected for what he did…he swore an oath, duty law faithfully executed… Cheney: Greatest betrayal of a president in history…He didn’t say fire in crowded theater he was fire chief who set fire and watched it burn….

Voltaire: “I disagree defend your right to say…anyone who can make you believe absurdities can make you do atrocities…”


Lieu: House debated, passed on a bipartisan vote. (NOTE: it was partisan. Most GOP voted no. )

Y’all gonna see full presentation of evidence…DT is receiving due process…Senate can do the same…


Raskin: All should agree if A PRESIDENT incites insurrection is impeachable offense. To prevent and deter but then commit a dangerous offense against the republic…to stop them…violence insurrection what could be worse…weapons sticks poles deface and trash to stop a free fair election then sit in delight…violates sacred oath profound dereliction of duty…how to hold accountable what is impeachable if this is not…the assert his conduct totally appropriate then any president can do this sets new precedent for conduct of any future president. Incitement is evidence-based and we COMMEND YOUR SCRUPULOUS ATTENTION TO THE EVIDENCE (HAHAHAHAHAHA)….they will say they never proved this or that and we stayed up night after night to offer this evidence because we love our country…that DT committed the offense and you must convict…

NEGUSE: WHETHER DT INCITEd. Was violence foreseeable did he encourage violence and did he do it willfully. Predictable that crowd on a hair-trigger if provoked. Of course… He knew…we’ve shown the evidence, images, articles…the big lie…

2nd MAGA rally 1/5 kept tweeting that fight just begun…fights broke after he tweeted…fights, stabbings, rally violence, 50 mil. In ads to those folks (NOTE: Effing CNN to their shame ran them too. I saw them)…widely recognized warnings….he knew how to provoke, how to incite…took as violent call to attack…FBI credible threats…6 arrests the night before…did he call for peace the days before..spread lie more…

CONCEDE…THE PHRASE YOU PEOPLE CAME UP WITH “STOP THE STEAL…” (NOTE does he mean Stone Brooks’ brothers 2000 rioters and Bannon came up with? That Rove came up with?) Fight hard…NEVER CONCEDE…directed ire to Congress, pointed at the Capitol and If you don’t fight like hell, you will lose your country…implied OK to break law…when you catch someone in fraud you are allowed to go by different rules.

RASKIN: STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND (indeed)...

15 GOP Senators not even there today...per Obermann...

RASKIN: Sovereign interests of people. The Senate will decide on Tuesday. Given them jurisdiction…trial on fact…incitement fact heavy…every relevant fact we know…defense we hope will know that facts must be examined not Constitutional argument which has been voted down…not frivolous or wrong but not relevant…16 hours for them: Questions we would ask DT when he refused to testify. Why did DT not stop attack when he learned and not for 2 hours…and why no help for 2 hours…why never condemn that day insurrection…if he did invite as we allege, in general would that be a high crime and misdemeanor…common sense all needed even without learning accessible to all what the community has in common…1776 Tom Paine – kings queens and tyrants win – Paine said this: These are time that try men and women’s souls…summer soldier sunshine patriot will shrink from duty, but the men and women who stand in sunshine…(I lost end of quote sorry Tom P…).

[9:04 AM, 2/10/2021] prayer in Senate started now...JH CHRIST on a cracker!!@!!!
The stupidity of this praying shit coming from the most hypocritical body ever to sit on their fat asses in history since the Ides of March!!! They are telling them to remain silent and listen! Like bad students.

Raskin: Sent by the president to incite: Whipped crowd into frenzy…if you don’t fight like hell…never take back country with weakness…he said fight like hell…they brought hell…Incited. Delighted by it...confused others not happy like him....Watched on TV like a reality show...inciter in chief...tweets...rampaging mob...Trump" I know your pain Hurt Election stolen landslide everyone knows it...." He did not console commiserated with mob...Their election stolen...he continued big lie...Joe won 7 million votes...When he said "go in peace...we love you... you are special a day that will live in disgrace...." It was coming, go I told you it was coming, then congratulatory rallying cry for next round..."
People need to carefully review if teachers are watching with students. Graphic images to come today...Donald Trump committed massive crime worst in history if America....must be convicted...president trying to change subject...that his first amendment right to incite... legal underpinnings all wrong...violent insurrection as free speech sets off new rioters and mobs.
They will use this argument....180 const. scholars called his arguments "legally frivolous.... No reasonable scholar or jurist would defend as free speech his inciting and watching attack on Senate on TV...fire in crowded theater not exactly.... worse. by the town fire chief to set it on fire and watched it burn...." They did it as patriotic duty... Sorry distracted by helping to seniros get vaccines. One did.

Trump's remarks just a speech....no...led 1000s to storm capitol with weapons, break windows storm walls… kill cops...it will be clear where mob came from... "To stop the steal he told them to stop an election to stop you us...Election stolen... stop the steal... fight like hell...remember these words...he seeded his followers for weeks...he knew some would be angry...his false claims...voice would be stolen" Showing clip of not allowing them to steal "over and over..." His words. Grooming his base...

[9:36 AM, 2/10/2021] "To stop the steal he told them to stop an election to stop you us...Election stolen... stop the steal... fight like hell...remember these words...he seeded his followers for weeks...he knew some would be angry...his false claims...voice would be stolen" Showing clip of not allowing them to steal "over and over..." His words. Grooming his base... oops repeated...
[9:38 AM, 2/10/2021] "Threatens officials with criminal penalties....justice said no support for him...went to public forums to get Congress not to certify...threatened VP, nothing worked...back against wall...all else failed....STop steal...fight like hell..."

BEST BEST lawyer I have heard in ages... Matlock level lawyer…Perry Mason on steroids.

He's TOAST...whether it works is the ????
THIS IS A BLOODY MASSACRE TRIAL....

Our Battleship Potempkin moment. See Eisenstein's film, the baby buggy scene that leads to Russian Revolution... And yet these effing MOFOs will vote it down on party partisan lines. Unless we fight it tooth and nail with every ounce of our being....He keeps repeating the three key phrases now. shows the clips and quotes...Now invokes LEOs and the violence...his duty to stop it dereliction...

to be cont.....
Quotes saying he called us to DC. A ton of quotes...yelled out and Greene... No not Greene it was the Texas bitch who a judge let out of jail and allowed to go to vacation in Mexico Cuddy was her name.

He praised we love you he told them as lives were lst 140 wounded cops. 5 deaths...he could ahve said stop the attack with same force as stop the steal...sadly he didn't...ayet not successful thanks to bravery of LEOs and senators who did their duty under threat of mortal peril....OH I WOULD NOT WNAT HIM PROSECUTINGME@!!!!!!

5 dead that terrible tragic day. A woman shot dead 50 feet from where we certified lateer in day...criminal complaints from Justice...tons of guilty...said they would have killed Mike P --Proud boy confession...looking for Pelosi to shoot in brain..." Defendents have confessed and said on film that were following president's orders.... He made them believe....

[9:56 AM, 2/10/2021] Raskin now reminds them they were there until 4, grateful to thank Pence for his actions, for following oath and duty faith...couple hours sleep...called immigrant dad said proudest moment in Congress was that day..humbled to be here today like that day, we should overcome and use resolve to uphold democracy.."

Swalwell and Castro next with step-by-step…Lie halfway around world before the truth especially w2hen president does it...not one speech mob provoked over many months foreseeable attack, preventable...

Transition of power..."I'll have to see...I am not saying...get rid of ballots and their willl be a continuation...no transfer of power..." saying they believe it's rigged...alll agreeing...had to be a cheat...says all who were asked at rally...he says all those there have lost (he is a Dem in Texas) but he asked if any ever tried to say it was rigged over and over. They would not....and all know understand it is dangerous....that an election doesn't count...stolen vice especially if lies...

These Dems congressmen managers are auditoning for senate jobs... OMG… Imagine being behind and opponent saying nt fair, stop election. No here you count every vote...he knew that but wanted to inflame base...t o result in a stolen rigged election...he said it on election night before they were counted 1 am he declared victory....fraud embarrassment...we were getting ready tp win...frankly we did win..." He called it rigged on Nov 4. Never recanted.
The next day Phoenix 100 armed rioters intimidating...Philadelphia same day plot to attack count... Atlanta Detroit Milwaukee…They used armed force....seeing Stop the count crap in Phoenix clips...he said we were winning then numbers whittled away...people on bullhorns screaming threatening statehouses… They bought into the big lie.

After he lost he incited further with increasingly forceful language --specifics to how to fight...Show up 1/6 to stop certification... They did not come out of thin air…Also he jacked prices of his hotel that day....Swalwell...end of beginning (Churchill quote was beginning of end) He assembled kindling tinder wood ready to light a match...and he lost by 7 million...he had backup plan...told base more lies...doused flames with kerosine...not random guy at bar blowing steam...groomed base with no basis in truth nut to inflame base...Nov 15 I concede nothing...long way to go...DEAD voted.... Twitter...

Supporters surrounded SOS Michigan's home.

[10:24 AM, 2/10/2021] Secretary inside with family terrorized...not first time they threatened and intimidated... DT knew from Nov 3...he could stop it...he was never shy about using platforms...he could have stopped it instead in escalating violence he incited more. 14 twitter claims that day...cannot be certified...RINOs allowed Dems to cheat election we won...we will never give up..."

till certified...Mitch McConnell said EC had spoken. Swalwell is a top-notch prosecutor. The last chance to stop peaceful transition of power on 1/6.. Castro explained the idea of a lie. Esp. for a POTUS. Spent 50mil to amplify his stop the steal…They ran everywhere until 1/5....I saw them constantly. A deliberate call to action...spent that campaign money he raised...Tweeted BIG PROTEST BE THERE WILL BE WILD....not random... 18 days before...18 day reminder over and over and over to stop the steal...if Dem rigged it proof of such it is an act of war, Dems will fight, Mitch and GOP would not fight.." They had accepted the process by then...ACT oof War if GOP...Lied and said FBI Justice said it was massive cheat (LIE), then he said history will remember (first he ever said such a thing) DON't MISS IT...SEE YOU IN DC...BIG RALLY IN DC at 11 am. STOP THE STEAL...retweeted WOMAN FR AMERICA creator of stop the steal...she said cavalry was coming and webpage... A great honor he said. Stated over and over to 70m followers...thanked by her...he retweets that they are gonna fight strong...bringing the cavalry....not just any old protest...inciting something historic...organized....tagged others to retweet... Same three phrase plus I WILL BE THERE...HISTORIC DAY Now Swalwell is asking if this is premeditated. he was a prosecutor in Cali...he warned of coming storm... Dems and weak RINO section of GOP they won't stand for steal...1000s pouring in...tags the GOP leadership...FBI was warning by then...never about one speech... He says left lies, ruthless want power by any means necessary (Malcolm X quote!!!! Plagiarising)...he led that mob to the doorstep...not all some were peaceful their right to peaceful protest...but what he did was different he repeatedly over months rigged stolen patriotic duty to fight in spite of priming and channeling rage call to arms...Told people armed to teeth to deliver premeditated attack...foreseeable to Trump...evidence has shown and will show...and also the truth..

Mich stunnng in scope breathtaking 5.5 mil disenfranchised...he told them they were setalin rgged...judge after judge said opposite true....

Called SOS Michigan a felon...terrorized her...pressured members to change minds...GOP tried to rescind vote but could not...Trump got Shurkey and Chatfield to overturn results...be clear calling officials, hosting advising they do it....in her state too PA WArd and Cutler said DT insisted they overturn...called the GOP legislatures...Can't let it happen for our country this election must be turned around we won sing states all of them..." He invited GOP PA to WH. They did not do it either....

[11:19 AM, 2/10/2021] A POTUS asking them to overturn an election...Georgia Raffensperger (sp?) was attacked relentlessly 17 tweets.. DISASTER... OBSTINATE.. PLAYED FOR A FOOL... Raffensperger (sp?git death threats his wife...they moved..they VOTED for DT...savagely attacked for soing his job...undermine people's votes...betray anyone if they got in the way...

GEorgia SOS begged him to stop. Stop inspiring violence. Challenge go to court but what he was doing diff : Sterling said Someone going to get shot, killed, violence foreseeable...please help...but TRUMP asked them to lie be a hero. Official refused.
Ted Lieu: He's awesome. Immigrant Ohio basement. Poor Flea market stores, USAF. Family Business selling in stores. TRAINED in Alabama as prosecutor...How did we get to Senate as crime scene with NG with body armor in halls....how did we get here?
He said the Senate pathetic...they were in his pocket except what he called Surrender caucus... 16 US attornies denied anomalies...no real fraud....Barr even found zero...no different outcome....gave Biden votes, Barr resigned...loyalist forced to resign over not lying for DT.... DT turned to those who would do his bidding .... fired Acting AG Rosen... Jeffrey Clark, he replaced Rosen and tried to stop EV cert...his efforts failed and so in desperation turned on Pence....

I LOVE LIEU….1/4 Georgia rally: "I hope Mike Pence comes through for us...of course if he doesn't come through I won't like him so much..." Kept leaning on Pence saying to base that Pence coul do it to make them lean on him...1 dozen times...."Pence a hero or a pussy" he tweeted. "Pence started getting threats. He stood his ground. Targetted. Stood strong. Too put country vote oath values morals above one man." Everytime rule of law prevailed will of electorate prevailed, so he ran out of non-violent options, tried everything he could to keep power. Then attacked YOUR Senate chamber...all the brave ones who knew...
Tomorrow Gaetz and Jordan respond cocky assholes.

[11:42 AM, 2/10/2021] Congresswoman Plaskett...

Truth to power. That is how we know he saw it coming...his incitement of PROUD BOYS since 2018 classified as extremist org by FBI causing serious violence, attacked some at a rally with baseball bat..asked if he'd tell them to condemn white sup. and militia groups...HE said STAND BACK Stand BY...

They adopted that as their new slogan and made merch for his rallies....followed his orders. the two leaders heading to Capitol on 1/6 charged obstructing... After 12 PM and a Biden rally workers in Texas I-35 San Antonio to Austin tried to stop the bus and run the bus off the road…. Filled with volunteers. One intentionally crashed into a car driven by Biden campaign workers. His response TWEETED 3, 2, 1 GO I LOVE TEXAS...and the video...he added a fight song 12.6 million views on Twitter. He bragged at a rally... see the way our people Trump and American flag protecting his people...he laughed....nit a joke...so violent even FBI responded...

DT could have said something. IN MY OPINION, THESE PATRIOTS DID NOTHING WRONG...they were patriots for trying to drive a bus off a highway with his opponents' And HE THANKED THEM. Organized by a Keith Lee. Fundraised, told supporters how flimsy: Y'all get to attack capitol, bullhorn to scale walls, urged them to go in....

Same groups got the 1/6 rally. Proud Boys standing by..HE TWEETED 8:45 We have just begun to fight...incited them...in Michigan Proud Boys said DESTROY ANYONE WHO DOES NOT LISTEN...

Pearson: This isn't over. We knew both parties against we the people...we are the Cavalry...no one coming for us.... NOTE: Proud Boy leaders all ethnic. Ask yourself why these White racist pigs did that...

I predict the GOP plans to say the Proud Boys are ANTIFA. Mark my words.
Proud Boys beat people up 1/5, vandalized a black church...
: They plan to throw the Proud Boys under...

The Rally planned a diff day for the rally. DT made them bring it 1/6...took over...Women for America First: Invited them to largest rally to stop the steal...they were supposed to stay and count for Women for America First...no march permitted. DT made the march part of it against the permit....not a coincidence....

Mark my words.. Proud Boys will be Antifa when GOP defends DT.
The Cavalry...blueprinted it on public forums, not hidden...we know (I KNOW I MONITORED THEM fro 16 days here at DU)....

to be cont.


KNEW KNEW KNEW.....everything else was a distraction...

I still have more impeach signs...ORGANIZED...an actual tactical victory to have intended effect...soldiers, cops, rightwing gun humpers...DT wanted it...

Yes it's illegal but this is war and we are clearly in a post-legal part of our history...I had the difficult task of having the talk with children...daddy might not come home...PATRIOTS.
They had maps floorplans...
Arrest worst traitors only 2000 cops, Capitol the goal...4000 likes, 100s of posts, communication devices using walkie talkies through bldg. advanced planning earpieces in Proud Boy ears...(they expected help from DT)..

[10:19 AM, 2/9/2021]: Violent rebellions, our worst nightmares -- if we accept the Trump defense that it’s too late to impeach, it will mean any president can do what trump did. They are using clips of him saying to fight to take the capitol... followed by many voices saying take the Capitol.

Just perfect clips...Sound enhanced to hear insurrectionists freaking...Reminding Americans of the stakes.

OMG, that clip will be studied for centuries.

They will fight back, but just saying...the blowback to RepubliQans will be lasting...Q-Shaman and his buddies saying Ted Cruz will love this as they rifle through Senate's stuff.
Showing Eugene Goodman hitting a rioter, distracting people from the Senate, chasing him, showing cop being trampled…All annotated. Trump clips. Timeline is devastating.

[10:26 AM, 2/9/2021]: The senators will need to cut off their own balls to argue in trump's defense...they will, but just saying...the blowback to RepubliQans will be lasting...Q-Shaman saying Cruz will love this as they rifle through Senate's stuff. Masterpiece…RepubliQans will say it was propaganda…but will make them look like Vichy, deserve head shaving.

[10:38 AM, 2/9/2021]: Sorry I am sharing thoughts with dozens on my committees of correspondence.

[10:38 AM, 2/9/2021]: Cut their balls!! I am in shock now!!

[10:40 AM, 2/9/2021]: I am blunt when needed…blunt knife. “Shave their bellies with a rusty razor.” RepubliQans will be hard-pressed to go forward. But they are shameless.
Rep. Joe Neguse first black member of Congress elected in Colorado. Using poet's tools to reach hearts. “Don't need to be a constitutional scholar to see…” Made the same arguments Trump’s side will make…that Senate lacks jurisdiction as former official. Senate outraged by that defense in Grant's day. Press could betray the country, avoid impeachment and leave office, come back like a Trumpy vampire...hahaha I added the vampire part.

[10:52 AM, 2/9/2021]: This is a historic moment and thread. Because I say so.
Rep. Joe Neguse is making a strong case historically. So glad a minority voice and good lawyer demands mandatory minimum punishment. Constitutional in his opinion. Can’t find professors to support their position. Could find one to say the only purpose of impeachment is removal, but he also added that removal was part of Impeachment process. The Trump lawyers left that part of the quote out!!!!! OMG.

[11:07 AM, 2/9/2021]: Nailed it… HOLY HELL's BElls. I feel like I am listening to Clarence Darrow defending evolution. He lost but we all know he was right. Same with Galileo's heliocentric universe. 800 years before the Vatican apologized.

[11:11 AM, 2/9/2021]: Senator Cicciline from RI now. These are junior Senators are so smart. The type you'd want if you were prosecuting a monster. “ Oath he swore sullied and dishonored. Things could have been much worse. They could have killed all of us. Cops defending us...Trump's incitement dereliction of duty, compounded the damage.”
Cops battered and bruised.. Quoting Trump saying this is what we get for challenging the election. Told insurrectionists to remember this day forever after they looked to assassinate senators.

Like the Shakespeare St. Crispin's Day speech written for Trump to tweet that day….Took oath on Bible. Can't defend, so tries to weasel out with impeachment as too late.
Commit terrible abuses...yet still use slippery slope argument...could be worse if Democrats in charge…WRONG.

[11:23 AM, 2/9/2021]: This Democratic defense is pure Constitutional…Trump wants a free pass by calling the case unConstitutional…But no defense for his guilt which is obvious and proven by the clips, etc. Not even an attempt to offer a defense…He was given an invitation to come. His lawyers refused afraid of what Trump would say….And we know he will speak after this with shriekingly awful tone-deaf comments...They will act like screaming and rage and ugly words will undercut and pretend it's not so bad, a game.... not impeached for words, but actions. Sought to overturn election after losing 65 lawsuits…Dereliction of duty, desertion of duty based on the high office he held. Targeted Vice President too. Tweets 5 hours after capitol sacked, siding with bad guys…Celebrated armed insurrection. His actions endangered government VP, senators, house, cops, national tragedy, affects our standing in the world, Trump was not in shadow, the VP. If that would have occurred is it not his behavior insurrection?

[11:34 AM, 2/9/2021] : So now Raskin Maryland is saying let me say something personal. (He almost got teary). Took his daughter, new son-in-law. Young daughter. Suicide of son-in-law. Emotional appeals. They were at the Insurrection Day. Caught covid there.
(That man is not arguing logically as it is using emotional appeal but that is stronger every time. 10 minute break so all can blow noses. I hear them sniffing…Good. They should be ashamed of themselves. JHChrist on a breadstick!!!).

[11:44 AM, 2/9/2021] : Reminded us that Trump tweeted a summarized St Crispin Days speech to his cult…made them feel and remember -- jurors, witnesses and victims. Reliving it. -- Quoting CNN Dana Bash (an arch-conservative…They will not be able to respond…Their managers are mostly not lawyers. They are the biggest House blowhards… One is a drunken frat boy from Florida. One is a guy who is embroiled in a sex scandal from his days as a wrestling coach at a school who never reported what he knew a doctor was up to. And the guy beat by his neighbor for being an asshole. A doctor with no real credentials. All failed to get them. GQP. “They are saying people around the world watching.”
Anyway, those three will just act like highschool bullies. That is all they have. We should expect it. We win the battle even as we lose the war. Unless shame is a mighty strong motivator, Vichy America wins. Shave their fucking heads after the war.
RepubliQan Side:
[12:02 PM, 2/9/2021] : Castor defense for Trump… he's a shithead. Sounds like he knows he's losing already. Thanks to his opponent. He was not there though. He’s hardly better than a public defender with no talent…An asshole. Denounces Trump rioters, but not Trump. Hypocrite… Of course the real people feel it's repugnant that Trump lost his election by fraud, but Trump suddenly does not want anything but unity. It is a lie. The guy is talking about how Trump mourns and he's a good guy… Under the bus rioters. Balls on platter lawyer...
Oh Democrats looking for their pound of flesh. Because we feel unsafe. No one representing Trump will say it should not be denounced that guilty should not be prosecuted. Democrats want retribution in blaming Trump!!!!!

OMG, my head is exploding here. "Passion, rage blinding our reason!" We are cold- bloodedly blaming Trump because we are overcome with emotions. We are hysterical.
[12:09 PM, 2/9/2021]: His balls are shrivelled. They are pulling the abusive male victim shit on America!!! Stupid greasy lawyer won't get paid. Trump never pays his debts, just goes for revenge. He will be denounced after the day’s end by Trump. Fired.

[12:12 PM, 2/9/2021]: That guy deserves to be grabbed by the collar and shaken. My dad did this to a colonel before. He ended up in Korea. But a colonel had to send him to the front because he knew. An NCO had the strength to pull a man up by the collar and shake him…Did not care what decorations sat on his shoulder. That's my role model in life. The MPs that arrested my dad, secretly shook his hand too.
[12:16 PM, 2/9/2021]: That lawyer’s balls are in my pocket if we are counting coup.

[12:21 PM, 2/9/2021]: BREAKING: President Trump requests use of Airforce One if forced to appear in Congress. "If they want to impeach me as President they'll have to let me travel as President."

[12:31 PM, 2/9/2021]: We are winning the hearts and minds. They have no case. They want to be super mean and must pull back their punches. Dumbest defense ever. If I was the defendant, I’d start planning for a stint behind bars.

[12:31 PM, 2/9/2021]: Now insinuating the GQP will get revenge if they don't watch out… He is revising his hardline speech as he goes.. I have done the podium thing enough to tell when you are unprepared and waiting for the clock to run out the bell...warning of backlash. He has to read this not as a fiery speech but as a whispered threatening sounding blackmail speech…did not act like Churchill who said that if you can’t win with logical argument, yell loud. He didn’t suggest whisper like a villain. It will backfire. Mark my words. The media will be vicious. Has gone through all the names of Democratic managers warning they will be taken down by voters. Now evoking Romans and Greeks asking how they would feel at the destruction of the Republic…why should they waste time on impeachment? Senate must focus on real work and republic will endure. (Sadly tone deaf ridiculous speech sounds like defense of slavery).

[12:36 PM, 2/9/2021] : Attack on Constitution my ass…Need 67 to agree you are right, but rule 23 says must be in agreement to impeach in office. BS. All or nothing. Sorry I am so mad I am spitting, cussing.

Give me Tomatoes to throw. The stocks. Where I would put him. Making me physically sick. to listen to GQP. Sorry. “Trump is out of office. Move on.”

[12:53 PM, 2/9/2021] : President honorably served. Best president. (Another GQP hands over balls). He wants to cry for Constitution. (I want to cry at this shite).
“You can't convict Trump because penguins look like they are wearing tuxes, and dragons don't have tophats. -- Angry White House Staffer....He’s calling the clips propaganda. Chosen carefully to make Trump look bad. They are calling it weaponization, sport, party over country, everyone will look bad. Personal shame.

OMG, they sure ride a short high horse.

Current argument: LIES LIES LIES LIES YOUR FAULT LIES LIES LIES.
Stealing Trump's right to free speech? Come again?
His political career endangered. Rushing to judgment. Impeachment is somehow un Constitutional ask Hamilton. He’s dead dummies. Ask Frederick Douglas. Trump knows him.
They are racing for new article of impeachment rush rush lie lie lie. Angry voice.

Catch 45: Jeff Tiedrich of the political forum Smirking Chimp sums up the absurdity with Twitter-appropriate brevity: “so for four years we couldn’t prosecute Trump because he was president and now we have to let him get away with it because he’s no longer president? holy f—–g shit, this is some industrial-strength bullshit and I’m not having any of it.” -- William Rivers Pitt

Body language as I read it: Foot to foot back and forth. Reading text, not looking up. Putting me in coma. Reading quotes from Reader's Digest Quotable Quotes website. Touches his combover when he drinks because it's loose and will muss up his baldy head. A man that lies about being that bald, is fooling one. Crucifixion with rusty nails on dry rotted wood. Defending Trump on moral grounds – Trump’s Golgotha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Using LBJ and Lincoln to defend Trump. Now trying to quote poetry, original quote from Whitman not the doggeral rhymer he's sharing. That is the worst use of such a quote ever.

[2:03 PM, 2/9/2021] : Also, they are voting if the trial is constitutional. So doen after that. That is their idea of a day's work. The baldy boring lawyer goes to restroom to pee and slick back his thin line combover.
[2:04 PM, 2/9/2021] : The are voting party lines...No trial says the Insurrectionist Cult.
[2:10 PM, 2/9/2021]: 56 to 44.
[2:11 PM, 2/9/2021]: The trial goes forward tomorrow

77 Days: Trump’s Campaign to Subvert the Election


A New York Times examination of the 77 democracy-bending days between election and inauguration shows how, with conspiratorial belief rife in a country ravaged by pandemic, a lie that Mr. Trump had been grooming for years finally overwhelmed the Republican Party and, as brake after brake fell away, was propelled forward by new and more radical lawyers, political organizers, financiers and the surround-sound right-wing media.

In the aftermath of that broken afternoon at the Capitol, a picture has emerged of entropic forces coming together on Trump’s behalf in an ad hoc, yet calamitous, crash of rage and denial.

But interviews with central players, and documents including previously unreported emails, videos and social media posts scattered across the web, tell a more encompassing story of a more coordinated campaign.

Across those 77 days, the forces of disorder were summoned and directed by the departing president, who wielded the power derived from his near-infallible status among the party faithful in one final norm-defying act of a reality-denying presidency.

Throughout, he was enabled by influential Republicans motivated by ambition, fear or a misplaced belief that he would not go too far.

The second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States, will commence on February 9, 2021. Trump was impeached for the second time by the House of Representatives on January 13, 2021. The House adopted one article of impeachment against Trump: incitement of insurrection.

When it starts, I will cover the lies that RepubliQans tell the American people under oath, start linking testimony to previous articles. As the youngsters say, I kept the receipts. I hope others will help me with this project. And any FBI agents, Capitol Police, Media, Congressional managers who want to look over my notes, have at it.

Having compiled the links for 2 weeks after the Insurrection, I decided to stop as links were beginning to repeat themselves. This is the first FOLLOW-UP post to add to the information about those who have been arrested, charged, and further linked to the events of January 6. As I expected, their stories change, their lies are exposed, they turn on each other as the guilty face the LAW and pay the piper.

Thanks to all whose diligence allowed me to compile such a comprehensive list of links.
