Corporate group urges officials consider Trump's removal 'to preserve democracy'

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The head of a major U.S. business group that represents 14,000 companies including Exxon Mobil Corp, Pfizer Inc and Toyota Motor Corp urged senior U.S. officials to consider removing President Donald Trump from office after supporters of the outgoing president stormed the U.S. Capitol.


National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons said Trump “incited violence in an attempt to retain power, and any elected leader defending him is violating their oath to the Constitution and rejecting democracy in favor of anarchy.... Vice President (Mike) Pence, who was evacuated from the Capitol, should seriously consider working with the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to preserve democracy.”

Trump has 14 days remaining in office before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20.

Other business groups issued strong statements but did not go as far as the manufacturers’ group. Under the amendment’s Section 4, never invoked, the vice president and a majority of either Cabinet officials or “such other body as Congress may by law provide” may declare in writing that the president “is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”.......................

Harsh statement. now he needs to ACT


Ben Sasse: "Today, the United States Capitol — the world’s greatest symbol of self-government — was ransacked while the leader of the free world cowered behind his keyboard — tweeting against his Vice President for fulfilling the duties of his oath to the Constitution."

If I remember correctly, it was the Park Service that issued the permit for the protest (nothing to do with DC mayor)


Reminder fo what capitol "security" in full military-grade riot gear looked like for Black Lives Matter protests this summer.

Glenn Beck Employee Boasts of Breaching Nancy Pelosi's Office Alongside 'Revolutionaries'

Source: the daily beast





Updated Jan. 06, 2021 4:21PM ET /


An employee of right-wing commentator Glenn Beck’s media outlet TheBlaze stormed Nancy Pelosi’s office on Wednesday alongside pro-Trump protesters who clashed with police and violently breached the Capitol building.

The Blaze host Elijah Schaffer posted a photo of a private staff computer screen, with his caption: “BREAKING: I am inside Nancy Pelosi’s office with the thousands of revolutionaries who have stormed the building. To put into perspective how quickly staff evacuated, emails are still on the screen along side a federal alert warning members of the current revolution.”

Schaffer later deleted the tweet, and tried to memoryhole his trespassing, claiming that he is merely a “full time reporter” and “am not personally involved in the events today in DC.” He added that his repeated use of words like “patriots” and “revolutionaries” to describe the MAGA mob was because the protesters used such descriptors for themselves.

The Blaze host had previously not been so generous to protests of a different political persuasion. Just one day ago, Schaffer posted a tweet lamenting “violence, vandalism, and arson” committed by antifa. “The media is silent about it. But why?”

Our real Pres. Joe Biden addresses the Nation Before the scared Trump does, who puts out a video while he hides in his bunker.

Trump tweeted out a government-produced video instead of appearing in front of the White House press pool. Weakness every step of the way.

They better find out who this office was.


Overheard: A metro DC police officer standing behind the Capitol telling Trump supporters that “antifa” is mixed in with the crowd and “instigating.” Offers no evidence for this but seems to be riling up Trump’s supporters further.
