“It’s hard to unify when we’re not able to make our argument because of the cancel culture.”Mr. Trump’s defenders said Mr. Biden should call congressional Democrats and tell them to back off. Democrats scoffed at that suggestion, maintaining that unity does not mean that accountability should be sacrificed. “I don’t think it’s very unifying to say, ‘Let’s just forget it and move on.’ That’s not how you unify,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters. “You don’t say to a president, ‘Do whatever you want in the last months of your administration. “That’s why ultimately our plan is based on unity and all of us acting as one nation.”

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden was elected on a promise to heal the nation, saying Republicans would have a post-Donald Trump "epiphany" that would finally allow for bipartisan governance. There must be accountability for lies and lawbreaking. Biden has already ruled out a pardon for Trump, saying at an MSNBC town hall before the election that he would defer entirely to prosecutors and not get involved. But the new president will set the tone for how former Trump officials and defenders should be treated in public life. "A lack of accountability is the quickest path to instability and future division," Perriello said.

The Justice Department, under pressure from Mr. Trump, has sued Mr. Bolton to recoup his profits from book. Representative Jamie Raskin, center, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a meeting of House impeachment managers on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. He also claimed, without further explanation, that Mr. Trump was “trying to heal the nation.” But even as Mr. Graham lobbied his Republican colleagues to vote against convicting Mr. Trump and offered a stream of flattery about the president’s success in office, he rejected the suggestion that Mr. Trump should pardon any members of the mob before leaving office. Without specifically mentioning Mr. Trump, Mr. Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris drew an implicit contrast with his administration’s dismissive attitude toward expert opinion.

But is this kind of appeal adaptable to a world where Trump himself cannot legally hold power any more? That kind of scenario, though, demands a level of Machiavellianism that Trump has — at best — inconsistently displayed, and a willingness to publicly subordinate himself and build up others that he has almost never shown. Does Trump actually want an heir, a successor to whom his legacy belongs? Does he want to live in a world where a son he used to disfavor — to say nothing of someone who isn’t his flesh and blood — is nominated for president instead of him? What McConnell has before him, then, is an opportunity to exert agency, to wield power, that is entirely unique to early 2021, and will be long gone by 2024.

One House freshman is pushing to carry firearms on Capitol grounds, and another recounts being armed during the attack, further putting their colleagues on edge. But, Beyer said, the issue "that has the greater emotional impact is the sense that there's perhaps actual physical danger from our colleagues." Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has said she feared for her life, in part because she doubted the motives of unnamed colleagues who were sheltering with her. But she and over 30 other Democrats have signed on to a letter asking authorities to investigate the claim. The article also misstated what chamber of Congress the attacker of a Northern senator before the Civil War was from.

Not every Republican senator nearing retirement exhibited Mr. Romney or Mr. McCain’s bravery. Mr. Romney, like the Arizona Republican Jeff Flake — whose opposition to Mr. Trump likely ended his senatorial career — belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which was once persecuted on American soil. By contrast, Mr. Kerry’s Massachusetts colleague, Ted Kennedy, who had been elected to the Senate in 1962, voted against it. Like most people, I’d prefer senators who do what I think is right.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, rejected Democratic calls for a quick impeachment trial, saying there was no way to finish it before Trump leaves office. That raised the prospect of a bitter trial in the Senate during Biden’s first days in the White House, something he urged Senate leaders to avoid. SENATE TRIALUnder the Constitution, impeachment in the House triggers a trial in the Senate. McConnell has said no trial could begin until the Senate was scheduled to be back in regular session on Tuesday, the day before Biden’s inauguration. TRUMP TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITYIn a video statement released after Wednesday’s vote, Trump did not mention impeachment and took no responsibility for his remarks to supporters last week, but condemned the violence.

After President Donald Trump stirred up a seditious mob and sent it to storm Congress last week, he retreated to the White House. Now the article of impeachment moves to the Senate for a trial, with conviction carrying the penalty of removal from office and possible disqualification from future federal office. Both arguments are dangerously misguided, and both misunderstand the vital role of impeachment in protecting our constitutional order. For the American founders, the story of Charles I was a paradigm case for why presidents had to be removable from office via impeachment. The Senate can begin to undo some of that damage by repudiating the seditious last act of a lawless presidency.
