Will Install a Trump Loyalist as Its General Counsel Vice President-elect Kamala Harris plans to resign from her Senate seat on Monday. 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.

Freshman GOP Rep. Nancy Mace of South Carolina said on Sunday that President Donald Trump's actions related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riots "put all of our lives at risk." Despite calling out Trump's conduct, Mace voted against impeachment, calling the process "rushed." Despite calling out Trump's conduct, she voted against impeachment, describing the process as "rushed" and saying it didn't give the president due process. "With censure, that was one of the things that I believe we should have had up for debate," Mace said. On Jan. 7, Mace said on CNN that that Trump's "entire legacy was wiped out" in the aftermath of the Capitol riots.

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.

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.

ET Capitol Riot Live Updates: Federal Authorities Sound a Warning; Trump Urges No Violence The deadly breach at the Capitol will be a “significant driver of violence” for armed extremists who are targeting the presidential inauguration, according to a bulletin issued by federal authorities. “In lights of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind,” Mr. Trump said. Shortly before Mr. Trump’s statement was released, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the Republican leader, spoke on the House floor, pinning blame on Mr. Trump for the attack. Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who stood by the president during lesser controversies, told his associates that he believed Mr. Trump had committed impeachable offenses. The House is expected to impeach Mr. Trump, for the second time, on Wednesday.

ET Live Updates: Trump Shows No Contrition for Inciting Mob, Calling Remarks ‘Appropriate’ The House will vote on a resolution on Tuesday calling on Vice President Mike Pence to wrest the powers of the office from President Trump. RIGHT NOW In a tacit break with Trump, House Republicans will not formally lobby against his impeachment. They were confident they had the votes to make Mr. Trump the first president ever to be impeached twice. Representative Kevin McCarthy, left, the Republican leader, said he will “personally” oppose impeaching President Trump. Sixteen groups — some of them armed and most of them hard-line supporters of Mr. Trump — have already registered to stage protests in Washington.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., right, and Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, and conduct a news conference in the Capitol Visitor Center after a meeting with the House Republican Conference on Wednesday, September 23, 2020. The leader of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives told colleagues Monday that President Donald Trump bears some responsibility for Wednesday's riot at the Capitol, two sources told NBC News. His reported comments come as Democrats, who have a majority of House members, have moved toward impeaching Trump for inciting the riot. But the letter, obtained by NBC News, lays out four potential actions to address the riot, none of which name Trump. The last item reflects the fact that many GOP voters, and Republican House members, believe that Trump was defrauded out of a win in the election by widespread ballot fraud.

House Sets Impeachment Vote to Charge Trump With Incitement

The vice president had already indicated that he was unlikely to act to force the president aside, and no one in either party expected Mr. Trump to step down. With that in mind, Democrats had already begun preparing a lengthier impeachment report documenting the president’s actions and the destruction that followed to accompany their charge. They were confident they had the votes to make Mr. Trump the first president ever to be impeached twice. The impeachment article invoked the 14th Amendment, the post-Civil War-era addition to the Constitution that prohibits anyone who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the United States from holding future office. Mr. McCarthy remained personally opposed to impeachment and tried to hold his conference together during a lengthy call on Monday afternoon.

Earlier, on Wednesday evening, the House and Senate overwhelmingly defeated an effort to reject Biden's electoral victory in Arizona. After that, a joint session of Congress will resume considering the state-by-state count of electoral votes. Pennsylvania was only the second state targeted for challenge by Republican lawmakers who have sought to reverse Biden's win over President Donald Trump. "Today was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol," Pence said as he opened the session in the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said, "The United States Senate will not be intimidated."

ET Live Updates: Georgia Official Blasts Trump for Repeating Falsehoods on Eve of Two Critical Senate Runoffs It was like “Groundhog Day,” a top election official said of once again having to debunk President Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud. Gabriel Sterling, a top election official in Georgia, delivered a scathing refutation on Monday of President Trump’s false claims of voter fraud. “I wanted to scream,” he said of his reaction to the call between Mr. Trump and Mr. Raffensperger. There are also concerns about the potential for Mr. Trump to use Monday’s appearance to mostly talk about himself, particularly after the release of a recording of a call between Mr. Trump and the state’s top elections official.

GOP Rep. Brian Babin of Texas expressed on Saturday that "history will be unforgiving" to any congressional Republican who doesn't back a challenge to the Electoral College certification of President-elect Joe Biden's win on Jan. 6. In December, Babin co-signed a letter requesting that Congress hold hearings to "probe all allegations of illegal conduct concerning the November 3, 2020 elections." Notable signatories of the letter included Reps. Mo Brooks of Alabama and Paul Gosar of Arizona, who early on stated that Trump won the election despite Biden's clear victory. Since the aftermath of the November election, Trump has steadfastly claimed, without evidence, that he won the presidential race and that fraudulent votes were added to statewide tallies. Biden won the 2020 presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes, to Trump's 232 electoral votes, with the Democratic president-elect winning over 7 million more votes than the president.

The House is set to vote on overriding Trump’s veto of the annual military spending bill tonight. After calling the pandemic relief bill a ‘disgrace,’ President Trump abruptly signs it. The signing was a sudden reversal for President Trump, who last week appeared poised to derail the bill. At campaign events, Mr. Perdue, 71, often fails to even mention Mr. Ossoff as an opponent.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) talks with reporters following the weekly Republican Senate conference meeting in the Mansfield Room at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., December 1, 2020. "Our country has officially a president-elect and a vice president-elect," McConnell said on the Senate floor on Tuesday. Trump, in his first tweet following McConnell's acknowledgement of Biden's win, again asserted his claims of voter fraud without addressing the Republican Senate leader's remarks. Even after the Electoral College cast its votes to make Biden's win official, Trump continued to amplify his false claims on Twitter. Attempts from Trump's campaign and his allies to reverse Biden's win have failed in dozens of court challenges.

Rep. Paul Mitchell, R-Mich., walks down the House steps after final votes of the week in the Capitol on Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018. Rep. Paul Mitchell of Michigan quit the Republican Party on Monday over the GOP's refusal to admit that President Donald Trump lost the election to President-elect Joe Biden. Mitchell said in his letter that he had voted for Trump "despite some reservations about four more years under his leadership." Trump, his campaign and his allies have lost or withdrawn every suit that challenged the validity of ballots for Biden. Before the Supreme Court acted on that request, Trump had called Texas' case "the big one" that would reverse Biden's win.

“The electoral votes should be cast on Monday, and all indications are that Joe Biden will be the president-elect at that time,” Mr. Hutchinson said in a telephone interview, urging the country to move on. She called the court’s ruling “an unsurprising affirmation of the principle that one state cannot tell another state how to run its elections.”On Capitol Hill, the response was particularly muted among the 126 House Republicans who signed onto an extraordinary amicus brief backing the suit. Aides to Representatives Kevin McCarthy of California and Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the party’s top leaders in the House, had no comment. And questions and requests for comments sent to the office of more than two dozen top congressional Republicans on Saturday were either declined or ignored. In a statement, he called the Texas suit “the best and likely last opportunity” to get the Supreme Court to rule on the election, and said the court’s decision “closed the books on the challenges to the 2020 election results.”

Numerous House Republicans have voiced support of overriding a Trump veto, including his staunchest allies who have urged the president to fund the military.
