Widen After Impeachment Vote Some House Republicans have called on Representative Liz Cheney to resign from her leadership post after she voted to impeach President Trump. Representative Liz Cheney had issued a scathing statement the day before the impeachment vote repudiating President Trump. Mr. Biden will detail his proposal, which he and his economic team have been honing for weeks, in an evening speech in Delaware. “This nation also remains in the grip of a deadly virus and a reeling economy,” Mr. Biden said Wednesday. Far more of a party institutionalist, Mr. Biden has promised to rebuild state parties and deepen investments in the committee.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

Republican lawmakers swiftly tried to reshape the narrative around the storming of the Capitol after the building was cleared. Congress was evacuated as the mob tore through the building, ransacking offices, damaging and stealing property, and leaving two suspected explosive devices. However, within minutes, Republican lawmakers set into motion a false narrative of the day's events in an attempt to obfuscate the truth and rewrite history. Other members of the GOP Senate delegation have been outspoken in the days since the riot in their calls for calm and performative shock over the unrest. Yesterday a mob inspired by the president and years of institutional Republican Party support brought to a halt the certification of a democratic election.

In it, Galloway calls President Trump the manifestation of the "anti-government creed" that has steadily grown in the US since the 80s. President Trump is the manifestation of that narrative. Put another way, putting the President in a social media timeout is insufficient. President Trump should be stripped of power immediately. If he had just one day left in office, Trump would still be a clear and present danger to the republic.

Police clear the U.S. Capitol Building with tear gas as supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump gather outside, in Washington, January 6, 2021. WASHINGTON – The FBI said Friday that there was no indication that individuals associated with antifa disguised themselves as pro-Trump supporters in order to provoke the mob at the U.S. Capitol, a claim repeated by several Republican lawmakers. When asked if the FBI had uncovered such efforts, the agency's assistant director Steven D'Antuono told reporters on a call, "We have no indication of that, at this time." "The Washington Times has just reported some pretty compelling evidence from a facial recognition company showing that some of the people who breached the Capitol today were not Trump supporters, they were masquerading as Trump supporters and in fact were members of the violent terrorist group Antifa," Gaetz said. The Washington Times article has since been removed from the publication's website.

Radical conservative activists and allies of President Donald Trump quickly began to spread disinformation about the Capitol riots Wednesday, claiming with no evidence that pro-Trump protesters photographed breaking into congressional chambers were anti-fascist activists. Tweets of the same picture of Angeli on the House dais were also shared by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who falsely added that the rioters are "not Trump supporters." About 7,000 posts on Twitter referred to antifa followers' "posing" as Trump rioters without evidence, according to an NBC News analysis. Lou Dobbs and Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., discussed the possibility of antifa instigators' infiltrating the pro-Trump mob. Laura Ingraham, one of the channel’s primetime hosts, spent much of the hour of her show suggesting without evidence that the Trump protesters had been infiltrated by antifa.
