Prosecute Trump? Biden Is Wary, but His Voters Are Eager
  + stars: | 2021-01-19 | by ( Trip Gabriel | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +1 min
New presidents want to look forward, not back, and Joseph R. Biden Jr. is no exception, taking office with a lengthy menu of plans and an aggressive timetable for scrubbing away the policies of his predecessor. But Mr. Biden’s often-expressed desire not to dwell on the sins or even the potential crimes of President Trump, in the name of national unity, is clashing with the will of Democratic voters who want to fully air any wrongdoing and punish Mr. Trump and his enablers, after an election in which many Biden voters were inspired less by passion for him than by rage at the president. Party institutionalists led by Mr. Biden want to hammer out deals with congressional Republicans, while the Democratic base is eager for Mr. Trump, his allies and his family members to be held fully accountable. “Many of us voted to get Trump out, not necessarily to be pro-Biden,” said Nancy MacEoin, 47, a criminal defense lawyer in Philadelphia. “Backing off any sort of prosecution of Trump is going to alienate those people.”

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.

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.

A group of bipartisan House members introduced legislation on Thursday to award the Congressional Gold Medal to a Capitol police officer who deterred a mob away from the Senate chamber during last week's deadly riots. Reps. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., and Nancy Mace, R-S.C., credited officer Eugene Goodman for "his bravery and quick thinking during last week’s insurrection." Capitol police officer Eugene Goodman is rightfully being hailed as a hero after singlehandedly holding back rioters from entering the Senate chambers last week. “The United States Capitol was under attack by armed, violent extremists, and Officer Eugene Goodman was the only thing standing between the mob and the United States Senate. The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest civilian award Congress can bestow.

Lawmakers in the House of Representatives have put forward a bipartisan bill to award Capitol Police officer and Army veteran Eugene Goodman the Congressional Gold Medal. Members of Congress, as well as the Army, have celebrated Goodman as a hero for his actions. Several lawmakers have put forward legislation to award Capitol Police officer and Army veteran Eugene Goodman one of the highest civilian awards in the US for his actions during the assault on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob last Wednesday. "I shudder to think what might have happened had it not been for Officer Goodman's fast thinking and commitment to his duty and his country," he continued. "While some will remember last Wednesday for the very worst in our country, the patriotism and heroics of Officer Eugene Goodman renew my faith and remind us all what truly makes the United States great."

At least five House Republicans support impeaching President Donald Trump over the Capitol siege, but most are pushing against it and arguing that it would further divide the country. But multiple polls show a majority of Americans support the House impeaching Trump and the Senate removing him from office. As the House on Wednesday debated impeaching President Donald Trump a second time — in this case for inciting an attempted coup — numerous Republicans argued that impeachment would further divide the US. Most Americans are in favor of impeaching Trump, despite what Republicans say:A CBS News poll released Wednesday found 55% of Americans favor impeaching Trump over the Capitol siege. At least five House Republicans support impeaching Trump, but most GOP lawmakers in the chamber are against it.

“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.

WASHINGTON — Three days after Representative Peter Meijer was sworn into office, facing down a mob of violent rioters and a constitutional test, he broke with his party’s leaders and a majority of his Republican colleagues and voted to certify President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory. Now, less than a week later, Mr. Meijer, a freshman lawmaker from Michigan, is considering breaking what has been the guiding orthodoxy of his party — loyalty to President Trump — and voting to impeach its leader. “What we saw on Wednesday left the president unfit for office,” Mr. Meijer said. Most of Mr. Meijer’s colleagues in the freshman House Republican class voted last week to overturn the election results, and some of the loudest in his cohort have rushed to embrace and elevate the president’s inflammatory brand of politics and conspiratorial impulses. The blunt, chastening language of Mr. Meijer and his fellow freshman Representative Nancy Mace of South Carolina, in particular, has dramatized in one freshman class the vast gulf between the dueling wings of a conference fractured by the departing president’s demand for total loyalty.

Toomey's remarks reflect a growing momentum in Washington to hold Trump accountable for Wednesday's unrest. The riots prompted a number of Republicans, including Cabinet members and longtime allies, to speak out. "And I think that's, I think that's the right thing. As is, majorities of both House and Senate Democrats now support Trump’s removal from office, in addition to the several Republicans. "And if that's the case, I think ... every day, we get closer to the last day of his presidency.

Lawmakers requested President Donald Trump to lower the White House's flag to half-staff in honor of a US Capitol Hill police officer who died after the deadly Capitol Hill siege on Wednesday. On Sunday, days after the police officer's death, Trump lowered the White House's flag. After pressure from lawmakers, President Donald Trump lowered the White House's flag to half-staff, days after a US Capitol Hill police officer died amidst the deadly Capitol Hill siege. In 1998, President Bill Clinton ordered the White House's flags to be lowered after a gunman killed two officers at the Capitol. After John McCain's death in 2018, Trump was reportedly reluctant in lowering the White House's flag in honor of the late Republican senator, according to The Atlantic.

Facing Backlash, Republicans Confront Trump’s Effect on Their Party

WASHINGTON — When a distraught constituent accosted her on Tuesday night at a restaurant in the nation’s capital, Representative Nancy Mace confronted an impossible task that sprang from President Trump’s false promises: getting them to understand why she and other Republicans in Congress could not simply overturn the results of the election. Driven by Mr. Trump’s fictitious claims that the election had been stolen from him — and that lawmakers and Vice President Mike Pence could clinch him another four years in power during Congress’s official electoral count — the voter had come all the way from Ms. Mace’s home state of South Carolina to witness it. Now, the voter, shaking and in tears, demanded to know why Ms. Mace, a first-term congresswoman, had refused to join the effort. Calm but firm, Ms. Mace tried to explain that it was not Congress’s role to subvert the results of an election — and that to do so would defy the Constitution. “It didn’t matter what I said,” Ms. Mace said in an interview.

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.

Supporters of President Donald Trump attemped to storm the US Capitol building on Wednesday, and Hill staffers were said to be evacuated from two buildings.

Supporters of President Donald Trump tried to storm the US Capitol building on Wednesday as members of Congress debated challenges to the results of the November election. Thousands of pro-Trump protesters came to the nation's capital to participate in the March for Trump.

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.
