10 Days and Counting!

Just saying.

Actually it is time to shut social media down as we cannot handle it in an appropriate way.

But it is not just social media as mainstream media leaves a lot to be desired as well as they are basically front pieces for the business community and we all know that the almighty dolllar rules us.

Pelosi wants Trump immediately removed from office however Congress does not have much of a role in the 25th amendment. I doubt it will happen but I didn't think the Democrats would win both Senate seats in Georgia either. Maybe impeachment.

You realize Babble is social media, right? And if that's banned, putting mainstream media in the "gatekeeper/guardrail" role they've been touting for the last few years, how are we ever going to hear a non-corporate voice again?

President Trump’s administration plunged deeper into crisis on Thursday as more officials resigned in protest, prominent Republicans broke with him and Democratic congressional leaders threatened to impeach him for encouraging a mob that stormed the Capitol a day earlier.

What was already shaping up as a volatile final stretch to the Trump presidency took on an air of national emergency as the White House emptied out and some Republicans joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a cascade of Democrats calling for Mr. Trump to be removed from office without waiting the 13 days until the inauguration of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Preemptive pardons are under discussion for top Trump officials who have not yet been charged with crimes, including Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, senior adviser Stephen Miller, personnel chief John McEntee, and social media director Dan Scavino.

On Friday, Assistant House Speaker Katherine Clark told CNN that a House impeachment vote could happen by next week if 25th Amendment is not invoked, which Vice President Mike Pence is said to oppose. The calls for President Trump’s removal from office come a day after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building.

What are the chances of the current Senate or the new Senate impeaching when a 2/3rds vote is required - zero?

Convicting?  Probably close to that.  If for no other reason that he's going to be gone in less than two weeks anyway.

On second thought, it may be higher than that.  There could be 17 out of the 50 Republicans who may see this as a way to possibly break Trump's stranglehold on the party.  Of course that presumes that McConnell doesn't block a vote, since he will be majority leader until Trump leaves.

I suppose also does Biden want the distraction?

He wouldn't care about that.  Trump is gone January 20 one way or the other.

Trump may be gone as the president but he is far from gone. Look at the strupidity of twitter giving him access to his twitter account again. Anyway Biden has already said he doesn't want to get side-tracked with his agenda.
