“The problem existed before him, but it’s really flourished even more under his administration,” Johnson said of Trump. The Trump Impeachment › Answers to your questions about the impeachment process: The current impeachment proceedings are testing the bounds of the process, raising questions never contemplated before. Conviction in an impeachment trial does not automatically disqualify Mr. Trump from future public office. The Senate could hold a trial for Mr. Trump even after he has left office, though there is no precedent for it. The people at the Capitol who said they were there because the president wanted them to be weren’t necessarily delusional.

Regions Bank confirmed to Insider that the PAC of its holding company is the victim of nine counterfeit checks. During the 2020 election, the Regions Financial Corporation PAC spread hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions among dozens of politicians — both Republicans and Democrats. Nevertheless, thieves made off with $31,550 from the federal political action committee of Regions Financial Corporation, the holding company of Alabama-based Regions Bank, according to new documents filed with the Federal Election Commission. On December 8, Regions Bank refunded the PAC the full amount that had been stolen, according to FEC records. King confirmed that Regions Bank, which operates in 16 states throughout the South and Midwest, has reported the theft to law enforcement in multiple states but declined to identify which ones.

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.

“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.

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.

Now, the fire the Republican party started is out of control and consuming our democracy. The GOP's dangerous games have inflamed supporters, demonized Democrats, sparked conspiracy theories, and burned down long-standing norms. While the Republican Party has become poisonous, praise should go to the Republicans who have put country first at our time of peril. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a lifelong Republican, facing incredible pressure from President Trump, stood firm on the validity of Biden's win in the state. Through their lies, political ploys, and norm-shattering schemes, Republicans have chipped away at our democracy for too long.

The U.S. attorney in Washington initially refused to rule out investigating Mr. Trump’s role in the riot. The deadly storming of the Capitol by Mr. Trump’s supporters transformed the politics of Washington in ways that were still hard to measure. The December call to the investigator, like the call Mr. Trump made to Mr. Raffensperger, was recorded, the official said. Mr. Trump had pressured Mr. Pence publicly and privately to overturn the certifications and throw them back to the states so that Mr. Trump could try to undo results in states that Mr. Biden won. Parler is one of several upstarts that have courted President Trump’s supporters with promises of “unbiased” and “free speech” social networks.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao resigned Thursday because of the mob attack on the Capitol fueled by President Donald Trump's rhetoric, saying the riot had "deeply troubled" her. Chao is the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and is the first Trump Cabinet member to quit in connection with Wednesday's chaos. On Wednesday, first lady Melania Trump's chief of staff Stephanie Grisham — who is the former White House press secretary — resigned in part due to the riot. There were growing calls Thursday for President Trump to be removed from office, either through Vice President Mike Pence invoking the Constitution's 25th Amendment, or through impeachment by Congress. A mob of Trump supporters then swarmed around and through the Capitol complex, invading lawmakers' offices and the Senate chambers.

On today's show, CNBC Washington Correspondent Eamon Javers breaks down how the violent events in the U.S. Capitol unfolded yesterday. Plus, Joanna Stern from the Wall Street Journal explains the significance of Trump's suspension from Facebook and Twitter. A reporter during a press call noted that Trump had called on his supporters at a rally before the riot to fight for him. Her departure came after several other resignations by Trump administration officials on the heels of the riot, among them top economic and national security advisors. Trump got a free pass from Twitter and Facebook, and the result was a storming of the Capitol

“GOP House Members are FIGHTING for honest & accurate elections!” he wrote. “Senate: HELP!”Instead, more Republican senators came out on Tuesday against attempts to undermine the results, bringing the total proportion that will vote to finalize the results as cast to about half of their Senate contingent. Those senators who were preparing to object largely avoided the extreme language coming from Mr. Trump and House allies. For instance, Mr. Cruz, a possible 2024 presidential candidate, cast his objection not as an attempt to overturn the election results but to draw attention to a futile call to create an independent commission to audit election results. Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, a rising Republican star, said that he disagreed with his colleagues objecting “both in principle and in practice.”

If Democrats win both runoffs, they will take control of the Senate. Their effort is certain to fail, given Democratic control of the House, and it has split the Republican Party. “Those of you that know how badly screwed we got, I want to be clear that we can’t let that happen again,” Mr. Trump said. We’re going to come back, and I really believe we’re going to take what they did to us on Nov. 3. Others in the party, including a dozen senators and Representative Kevin McCarthy, the House Republican leader, have embraced at least the idea of challenging the certification.

But he also did not “want to be in a position where we’re suggesting setting aside the results of an election, just because the candidate that we supported didn’t happen to prevail.”“That’s not a principled constitutional position,” Mr. Cruz added. Those involved have conceded their effort is unlikely to be successful. “Proposing a commission at this late date — which has zero chance of becoming reality — is not effectively fighting for President Trump,” Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, wrote on Twitter. “It appears to be more of a political dodge than an effective remedy.”Senator Roy Blunt, the No. 4 Republican, said he too believed Mr. Cruz’s plan had no chance of success.

Fate of $2,000 stimulus checks in limbo as Senate instead turns to veto override of military bill. With just four days left in the legislative session, Senate Republicans have shown little interest in turning the president’s demand for larger stimulus checks into a reality. Instead, on Wednesday, the Senate will meet to advance the military policy bill Mr. Trump vetoed, setting up what is poised to become the first veto override of his presidency. A vast majority of Senate Republicans have long resisted the idea of larger stimulus checks, pointing to concerns about their cost and effectiveness. In a runoff this month against another Republican, Mr. Letlow was elected to succeed Representative Ralph Abraham, under whom Mr. Letlow had served as chief of staff.

ET Presidential Transition Live Updates: House Pushes Senate to Approve $2,000 Stimulus Checks Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader, said he would try to use a procedural maneuver to pass the bill on the Senate floor today. After voting to advance $2,000 stimulus checks, the House pushes for a quick Senate vote. She will receive her shot on camera, just as Mr. Biden did last week. Speaking last week in Delaware, Mr. Biden nonetheless offered a sober warning about what lies ahead. On Monday, hours before the House of Representatives voted to advance the $2,000 stimulus checks demanded by Mr. Trump, Mr. Ossoff tweeted, “@Perduesenate, when will you commit to $2,000 relief checks for Georgians?

Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue said on Tuesday that they would support President Donald Trump's push to increase direct stimulus payments to $2,000 per person from $600. "I support this push for $2,000 in direct relief for the American people," Perdue tweeted. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, who are locked in tight runoff races in Georgia, said on Tuesday that they would support President Donald Trump's push to increase direct stimulus payments to $2,000 per person from $600. "President @realdonaldtrump is right — I support this push for $2,000 in direct relief for the American people," he wrote. With Trump and the House on board with $2,000 direct payments, the Senate is the last key for the legislation to come to fruition.
