Rep. Lieu stated on MSNBC, “I’m not going to reveal trial technique. All I’m going to say is there’s a mountain of proof that the American public noticed in broad daylight. With each passing day we get further movies, further incriminating statements. And the division of justice whenever you have a look at how they’re charging individuals, they use phrases like insurrectionists. They’re basically viewing this case the identical approach we’re and most American persons are. This was an armed revolt, a violent assault on our nation’s capitol to cease congress from formalizing Donald Trump’s defeat and it resulted in a number of deaths.”
The brand new movies that emerge every day not solely assist to make the case in opposition to Donald Trump but additionally function proof in opposition to others who helped incite the revolt, like Sen. Ted Cruz.
The proof is huge, and it begins with Trump telling his supporters to go to the Capitol in a protracted speech the place he claimed to “make his case” that the election was stolen from him.
The vote to convict Trump is prone to decide up extra Senate Republican votes than the lone vote on a single article by Sen. Mitt Romney throughout Trump’s first impeachment.
Republicans haven’t any purpose to not convict Trump, and if Mitch McConnell really wants the former president purged from the GOP conviction is extra prone to occur.
