Plaskett insists Trump will 'never be elected again' despite impeachment acquittal

US lawmakers will form 9/11-style panel to probe Capitol violence, says Speaker Nancy Pelosi

"Be it resolved that the Executive Committee of the Barry County Republican Party hereby censures Congressman Peter Meijer for voting to impeach the 45th President of the United States".

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell voted to acquit Trump, a decision he detailed in a Wall Street Journal op-ed explaining that he holds the former president responsible for the January 6 riot but believes the Constitution doesn't allow for the impeachment of people who have left office.

In a brief statement, Burr accused the North Carolina Republican Party of expressing loyalty to Trump over the principles of the Republican Party.

Tonight, the North Carolina Republican Party Central Committee voted unanimously to censure Senator Richard Burr for his vote to convict former President Trump in the impeachment trial which he declared to be unconstitutional.

While a majority of the Senate, 57 of the 100 members, voted for conviction, it fell short of the two-thirds majority required. "President Trump has done more for the American people in four years, than you, the Rhinos and the Democrats have done in years!"

Donald Trump's comments come after Mitch McConnell said he was responsible for Capitol riots.

Despite Trump having been formally impeached while he was still in office, now that he is a private citizen, McConnell said the Senate did not have jurisdiction to conduct an impeachment trial against him.

"Days after the six-term IL lawmaker urged Trump's removal from office for his role in the January 6 Capitol riot, close to a dozen members of his family sent him a handwritten letter, shaming him for siding with "'the devil's army'".

After the final vote on Saturday, McConnell blasted Trump on the Senate floor, suggesting that the former president could be subject to further litigation outside of Congress's purview. However House managers, led by Rep Jamie Raskin, have correctly argued that actually calling witnesses would not have changed enough Republican votes set into stone, from acquit to convict, and that needlessly prolonging the trial risked losing votes to convict.

He insisted the courts were a more appropriate venue to hold Mr Trump accountable than a Senate trial.

Federal prosecutors have said they are looking at all angles of the assault on the Capitol and whether the violence had been incited.

"The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political "leaders" like Sen". The president on his first day in office extended the moratorium on foreclosures, first issued by Trump, until the end of March.

This is the second county in Meijer's district to vote to censure him, after Calhoun County GOP voted to censure him earlier this month.

Indiana University law professor Gerard Magliocca said Trump will likely be dismissed as a defendant from the lawsuit because of a U.S. Supreme Court decision from 1982 that protects presidents from lawsuits over official acts.

But what's next for the former president?

"Other state Republican organizations are attacking or considering rebukes of the other five Republican senators who voted against Trump: Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Ben Sasse of Nebraska".

Congressman Adam Kinzinger of IL, an outspoken Trump critic, has been disowned by his own family for his vote to impeach Trump. Every incumbent House Republican won for the first time in decades, and we flipped 15 seats, nearly costing Nancy Pelosi her job.

It showed 59 per cent of GOP voters want Trump to play a major role int he party. after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy traveled to Mar-a-Lago to meet with Trump, and Sen.
