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 extra movies, extra incriminating statements. And the division of justice while you take a look at how they’re charging individuals, they use phrases like insurrectionists. They’re primarily viewing this case the identical manner we’re and most American individuals are. This was an armed riot, 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 each day not solely assist to make the case towards Donald Trump but in addition function proof towards others who helped incite the riot, like Sen. Ted Cruz.
The proof is huge, and it begins with Trump telling his supporters to go to the Capitol in an extended speech the place he claimed to “make his case” that the election was stolen from him.
The vote to convict Trump is more likely 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 cause to not convict Trump, and if Mitch McConnell really wants the former president purged from the GOP conviction is extra more likely to occur.
