Democracy is fragile: Joe Biden reacts to Trumps senate acquittal

Trump Impeachement Result A''Vote Of Infamy In US History' Democrats

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said, "This was the most egregious violation of the Presidential oath of office and a textbook example, a classic example of an impeachable offence, worthy of the constitution's most severe remedy in response to the incontrovertible fact of Donald Trump's guilt".

Republican Senator Bill Cassidy defended his vote to convict Donald Trump at his impeachment trial for inciting an insurrection at the US Capitol, saying that "it was clear that he wished that lawmakers be intimidated" as they convened to certify the 2020 presidential election results.

Trump, a Republican, was accused of inciting riots in the US Capitol on January 6 which left five people, including a police officer, dead. Davidson-as-Van Der Veen came on screen next, saying he didn't want to be there, that "this is the worst thing that's been in the senate chamber in the history of a couple of weeks" and that he was going to call his own witnesses, after which he proceeded to mispronounce a number of women of color's names, including Kamala Harris, but whether it was on objective or out of ignorance he noted, "You'll never know". Shelley Moore Capito both cited constitutional concerns in their decision to vote to acquit Trump.

"They stormed the Senate floor".

An NPR reporter observed: Democrats had a chance of opening up the trial with witnesses about what really happened in the White House "from primary sources, but in the end the desire to be done won out".

Most Senate Republicans weren't going to convict Trump despite the evidence, he said. Sheldon Whitehouse, encouraging Democrats to "suspend" the trial and seek answers to questions that had come up.

Graham said he has spoken to Trump since the trial, and while the former president is upset with some members of his party, he is "excited about 2022" and looking to help rebuild the Republican Party in next year's midterm elections. A guilty verdict requires the vote of two-thirds of the Senate.

Senators endorsed the eventual deal. One of the most memorable portions of the prosecution case by the impeachment managers were the new videos of Trump's supporters, wearing Make America Great Again hats and waving Trump flags, ransacking the Capitol.

Still, there was frustration behind the scenes, and even among the House Democrats, about what they should do.

One of the impeachment managers, Rep. Madeleine Dean, D-Pa., said Sunday that she supported the idea of an independent commission.

"There is no way that a reasonable person could dispute that the former President knew exactly what he was doing", Casey said in his statement.

Trump called for his supporters to join a rally in Washington on January 6, which started shortly before Congress began the work to certify Biden's win in the election.

Trump was impeached by the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives in the final days of his four-year presidency, becoming the first US president in history to face such a rebuke twice. The call log made clear that Trump sent a tweet attacking Pence two minutes before being told by a senator that Pence was being evacuated.

"North Carolina, the biggest victor I think of this whole impeachment trial is Lara Trump".

"I don't know about my colleagues, but I plan to reach my hand across the aisle", Bennett said. "If you want to blame somebody".

Court cases that try to prove incitement often bump up against the First Amendment.

The final vote was 10 votes short of the 67 guilty votes needed to convict, with seven Republicans finding him guilty. One of those Republicans, Pennsylvania Sen. Richard Burr and Pat Toomey, Politico reported.

"The House managers did a masterful job", he said after the final vote.

Despite slight pushback from within the Party, the GOP still belongs to Donald Trump.
