After a violent pro-Trump mob overtook the seat of American democracy, leaders around the world are following closely what happens next. Will the United States Congress impeach and remove President Donald Trump? A failure to impeach Donald Trump would ultimately threaten global stability and our very own national security interests.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is considering a vote to convict President Donald Trump in an impeachment trial, Republican sources told Insider. "It's the time to shiv him and then brace for the fallout," said one GOP source with ties to the Trump White House. Sources close to the White House say the president's team remains in chaos after last week's riot. They also don't believe McConnell has the votes to convict him, according to another Republican close to the White House. "He's only going to get stronger," one of the sources close to the White House said, "if he survives all this."

President Donald Trump was permanently banned from Twitter on Friday. On Friday, Twitter pulled the plug on one of its most notorious users: President Donald Trump. Later that day, Dorsey left the group chat, which Giridharadas said was the first action he remembered seeing from Dorsey in the chat. Donald Trump Jr., for example, wrote in one tweet: "The world is laughing at America & Mao, Lenin, & Stalin are smiling. "Joe Biden is never going to make a social-media company as much money as Donald Trump made them," Giridharadas said.

How ‘Orwellian’ Became an All-Purpose Insult
  + stars: | 2021-01-13 | by ( Jennifer Szalai | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
After the events of last week, one has to wonder whether Josh Hawley — for all of his prep school polish and Ivy League degrees — was fully cognizant of what he was doing. An irate and incredulous Hawley took to Twitter, calling the publisher’s actions “a direct assault on the First Amendment.” In peddling specious claims of voter fraud, he said he had merely been doing his duty, “leading a debate on the Senate floor on voter integrity.” He insisted that his publisher was taking its cues from “the Left” and trying to silence him: “This could not be more Orwellian.”One might come up with things that are in fact “more Orwellian” — including the bland euphemism “voter integrity,” which typically serves the cause of disenfranchisement and not voting rights. (Just as one might question whether a single publisher scrapping a single book contract amounts to what George Orwell’s novel “1984” describes as “a boot stamping on a human face — forever.”) But Hawley was taking part in the long tradition of invoking Orwell’s name as a cudgel for settling scores and scoring points. The next day, after Twitter permanently suspended the president’s account, his son Donald Trump Jr. announced (on Twitter) that “free speech no longer exists in America” and “we are living in Orwell’s 1984.”In the meantime, the novel “1984” — in which a totalitarian regime crushes dissent through violence and the perversion of language — shot to the top of Amazon’s best-seller list. Hawley may have bungled the rollout of his own book, but it looked like he helped buoy the sales of someone else’s.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the press as he departs the White House on travel to visit the U.S.-Mexico border Wall in Texas, in Washington, U.S., January 12, 2021. President Donald Trump on Tuesday doubled down the type of incendiary rhetoric that incited the Capitol riot last week, warning darkly that it was dangerous to the United States for him to be impeached for his conduct. Trump also claimed that his inflammatory comments at a rally shortly before the invasion of the halls of Congress by thousands of his supporters on Wednesday were not harmful. "It's ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous," Trump said in his first comments to the media since the riot, which killed a Capitol police officer and left four others dead. "This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you're doing it, and it's really a terrible thing that they're doing," Trump said, apparently blaming reporters for his looming impeachment.

Secret Service agents were forced to testify during an investigation into then-President Bill Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Ex-President Richard Nixon also rejected Secret Service protection, saying it would save the public money. "That is a very, very slippery slope to go down as far as the Secret Service is concerned," said former Secret Service agent Joe Funk, a 21-year veteran of the Secret Service who served on the details of presidents George H. W. Bush and Clinton. But the courts rejected their argument that Secret Service agents deserve special confidentiality privileges. Trump's older children — Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Tiffany Trump — get Secret Service protection only while their father is president.

President Donald Trump was permanently banned from Twitter last week, after the social media platform repeatedly cited language they said helped incite the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol Building. The rest of his family, save for Donald Trump Jr., seem to have spent much of the last few days off the platform. Donald Trump Jr., however, has tweeted more than three dozen times in defense of his father and in defense of free speech. President Donald Trump's personal account was permanently banned from Twitter on Friday, after weeks of back and forth between the president and the social media giant. Additional tweets on Friday led to the president's permanent removal, along with that of the Trump campaign's Twitter account.

There were some 2,000 Parler posts tagged #stormthecapitol ParlerAmazon yanked web hosting out from under the social media platform as criticism mounted that Parler failed to moderate dangerous threats to the government.

D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine sits for an interview in his office at One Judiciary Square on Thursday, March 7, 2019, in Washington, DC. Jahi Chikwendiu | The Washington Post | Getty ImagesThe District of Columbia's attorney general said Monday that he is looking at whether to charge Donald Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani and GOP Rep. Mo Brooks with inciting the violent invasion of the U.S. Capitol last week by a horde of President Donald Trump's supporters. Karl Racine also left open the door to prosecuting President Trump himself for the same conduct once he leaves office later this month. "Let's just say first, those were outrageous comments that those individuals, including the President of the United States made," Racine said. "Whether that comes to a legal complaint, I think we've got to really dig in and get all of the facts.

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf testifies at his Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee confirmation hearing on September 23, 2020 in Washington, DC. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf resigned Monday, becoming the third Cabinet-level official to quit on the heels of the riot at the U.S. Capitol by a mob of President Donald Trump's supporters. Wolf, in a letter to Department of Homeland Security staff, said his resignation was "warranted by recent events, including the ongoing and meritless court rulings regarding the validity of my authority as Acting Secretary." He had been acting secretary of DHS since November 2019. Pete Gaynor, who currently is the administrator for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, will become acting DHS secretary.

The attack on the Capitol made so many of the ugliest parts of Donald Trump obvious even to people who pretended they didn't exist. In a short speech the day after the terrorist attack on the Capitol, Trump did not apologize for inciting these individuals to insurrection. He referred to Trump's supporters as "hobbits," and he did not enjoy spending time among them. In 2019 documentary "The Brink" he addressed a group of Trump supporters in a modest living room, assailing the virtues of middle class nationalists around the world. They would be located in the Southeast of the US, and cater toward the middle-class supporters Trump purported to love.

At Wednesday’s rally, Mr. Trump gave some prepared remarks on the so-called evidence of election fraud, but he worried aloud that the crowd would be bored by those details. After Rudolph Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, exclaimed, “Let’s have trial by combat,” and Donald Trump Jr. said of Republican members of Congress who did not support Mr. Trump, “We’re coming for you,” the president took the stage. After all, he also said that the protest would be done “peacefully and patriotically.” But when the violence first appeared on television, Mr. Trump did not immediately communicate any disapproval. The president reportedly failed to order the National Guard to defend Congress. Nor will prosecuting individuals for their particular crimes address the fundamental constitutional issue, the blatant violation of the separation of powers.

Pompeo's comments also come as some extremist Trump supporters are threatening to return to Washington to disrupt President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on Jan. 20. Pompeo is widely thought to have political ambitions beyond his position in the Trump administration. Twitter permanently suspended Trump’s account on Friday, citing "the risk of further incitement of violence." Donald Trump Jr. called Twitter's decision to ban the president's personal account a "full frontal assault" of free speech. The vote could come as early as the middle of next week, just days before the president's term expires.

In a blog post, Twitter said its decision to suspend President Donald Trump's account was due to the fact he was "likely to inspire" more violence like that seen at the US Capitol. Twitter also specifically wrote: "Plans for future armed protests have already begun proliferating on and off-Twitter, including a proposed secondary attack on the US Capitol and state capitol buildings on January 17, 2021." According to NBC News, there has been discussion on social media about coming back to Washington, DC, on January 17 and January 20, the day of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, immediately cried foul, claiming, on Twitter, that the removal of his father marked the death of free speech. "He did not deserve a platform on Twitter, or on any other social or traditional media."

After news of Trump's ban, top conservative figures shared their Parler usernames on Twitter.
