Now the National Mall is closed to the public due to threats of violence from groups who attacked the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “It’s like a ghost town but with soldiers,” said Dana O’Connor, who walked with her husband past concrete barriers near the White House on Sunday. Presidential inaugurations are normally high-security events, with metal detectors at key entry points, restricted ID-only zones and National Guard supplementing local and federal law enforcement. “The world will see Biden sworn in, in the middle of a military camp that’s indistinguishable from the Green Zone,” Sabato said, referring to the fortress-like area of central Baghdad set up after the Iraq War. Amy Littleton, a 30-year-old political consultant who lives about 10 blocks north of the White House, said “it just feels really unfair” to be excluded from Biden’s inauguration.

He also boasted about removing the United States from the global Paris Agreement on climate change. His treatment of U.S. allies has left Biden with shell-shocked friends and the challenge of restoring the United States as a champion of democracy. He set up a multitude of new bureaucratic hurdles for immigrants seeking to enter or stay in the United States. White nationalism, which has festered in the United States since its very start, bloomed under Trump. Trump policy took aim at Muslims specifically.

The Justice Department on Friday assured the Trump administration that its hard drives won't become Joe Biden's property on Inauguration Day. DeBacker started at DOJ last August and previously worked for 17 months in the White House counsel's office under Pat Cipollone. The National Archives has said it won't be able to remove all of Trump's records from the White House prior to Biden's inauguration. Previous presidents have also left documents behind when they left the White House, according to the DOJ memo. But the White House request to the Justice Department suggests that the outgoing Trump team may not even do that.

New York (CNN Business) Stocks have gained about 13% since Election Day as of Tuesday, a day before Joe Biden's inauguration -- marking the the best post-election market performance for a new president since JFK, according to CFRA Research. The S&P 500 rose 8.8% from late 1960 to early 1961 after John F. Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon. The market continued to rally during JFK's first 100 days in office, rising another 8.9%. The current Biden market surge represents the second time in a row that Wall Street has cheered a new president: Stocks gained more than 6% in the election to inauguration period after President Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. The market gained 5% during Trump's first 100 days as well.

Trump became the first U.S. president to be impeached twice last week for his role in inciting a violent mob of his supporters to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “The country needs to find a way to heal itself and the new president needs the opportunity to lead and heal us — both literally and spiritually,” Comey said. “We’ll never know, but a Nixon prosecution might have prolonged — rather than solved — the country’s pain,” he added. He said he was "sickened" by the attack on the Capitol and the failure to defend the building. “It mystifies and angers me,” Comey said, adding: “It will be important for our country to understand that failure."

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.

Revels’s backers argued that he was in fact a lifelong citizen of the United States, because he was born to free Black parents. After more objections and heated debate, the efforts to block Revels’s admission were voted down by the antislavery Republicans who dominated the Senate. Revels showed no embarrassment whatever, and his demeanor was as dignified as could be expected under the circumstances. The abuse which had been poured upon him and on his race during the last two days might well have shaken the nerves of any one.”Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts spoke up in Mr. Revels’s defense. “All men are created equal, says the great Declaration,” he said, but “the Declaration was only half established by Independence.

Trump wrote on Twitter in 2018 that he had the “absolute right” to pardon himself. Others have argued that a self-pardon is constitutional because the pardon power is very broadly worded in the Constitution. Why would Trump pardon himself? A pardon cannot cover future conduct, but a pardon can be preemptive in the sense that it can cover conduct that has not yet resulted in legal proceedings. The Nixon pardon is an example, and there are others.

Crowell & Moring, DLA Piper and more than a dozen other law firms called on Vice President Mike Pence to remove President Trump from office. Like most businesses, law firms try to keep their reputations clean. Seyfarth, a full-service law firm whose lawyers have represented Trump's business in various civil lawsuits, decided last week to drop the Trump Organization as a client. "Law firms are becoming more like public companies," said Deborah Farone, a marketing consultant who worked at top firms like Cravath and Debevoise. Stephen Gillers, a legal ethics professor at New York University, said law firms have been raked over the coals before, targeted by both the left and right.

Even if Mr. Trump wants to adopt a lower-profile — a decision that’s hard to imagine the media-loving president making — it will be difficult for him to avoid politics. A vocal wing of the party is pushing for prosecutions and a raft of legal challenges against Mr. Trump, his family and his allies. Though he won more voters than any other Republican presidential candidate in history and maintains the support of a vast majority of G.O.P. “I do not think a party centered on President Trump is viable,” said David Asp, a former member of the Republican National Committee from Minnesota. (Mr. Trump, for his part, does not care for the comparison, exploding at aides who bring up the ex-president’s name, according to CNN.)

Republican senators who voted to acquit Trump in February — in a hollowed-out trial without witnesses — misread the president, completely seemingly convinced that impeachment alone might temper his actions. Trump’s Senate enablers allowed Trump to escape the consequences of his abuse of power by their near-unanimous vote to acquit last February. If the Senate convicts Trump, a simple Senate majority can bar him from ever again holding any federal office. And unlike Trump, Nixon resigned when Republican congressional leaders told him that he would likely be convicted in a Senate impeachment trial. Duty demands that he be convicted by the Senate and, by a Senate vote, barred from ever again holding the power of the presidency.

President Donald Trump has refused calls to resign after he was impeached earlier this week. Trump has been extremely opposed to the idea and has forbidden aides from mentioning former President Richard Nixon. Nixon resigned after the House Judiciary Committee voted to move ahead with his impeachment proceedings in 1974. President Donald Trump told an advisor to never bring up former President Richard Nixon's name ever again in an angry and expletive-filled rant, CNN reported, saying in "separate conversations" that the mention of Nixon was forbidden. Some allies have called on Trump to resign like Nixon ahead of the Senate's impeachment trial.

Construction of a Trump library could wind up being a major battleground over the legacy of the twice-impeached president. It's unclear whether either university Trump attended would want to house a Trump library. President John Kennedy picked a spot for his presidential library near Harvard, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a month before his assassination. Richard Nixon's presidential library in Yorba Linda, California, was at the center of a historical brawl over the Watergate scandal. Language in the Presidential Records Act "places the responsibility for the custody and management of incumbent Presidential records with the President."

The episode prompted concerns that if a Democrat also won in 2024, for example, a Republican-controlled Congress could go through with fully rejecting a state's electors and even overturn an election. It's well within the realm of possibility that Democrats in the 2022 mid-terms could lose their slim control of both bodies of Congress, setting up the potential for a bid to overturn states' electoral votes. Erin Schaff/AFP via Getty ImagesCan Congress unilaterally overturn election results? Congress would have needed to reject multiple states Biden won to overturn his 306-232 electoral vote defeat of Trump. Consider a closer election where Congress only needed to reject one state's slate of electors to overturn the winner's victory, leaving no candidate with a clear majority of electoral votes.

"Anytime they have any stock [of the product] available, it's going to be gone almost instantly," said Ben Cavender, the Shanghai-based managing director of China Market Research Group. Moutai baijiu — the type of liquor the company makes — is a clear, potent spirit that's been dubbed "firewater," thanks to the fact that it's 53% alcohol. I think Moutai is that brand for China, and so I think that part explains why it's so popular." As of 2019, Maotai was the richest town in western China, according to disposable income statistics from the municipal government of Renhuai, in Guizhou province. "The Chinese market is so big, and it's continuing to become more wealthy," said Cavender.

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.

In an emotional debate before the 232-197 vote, 10 Republicans joined the majority Democrats in supporting impeachment. Multiple Republicans defended Trump’s remarks as protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which defends free speech. The swift impeachment, one week after the riot, is very unlikely to lead to Trump’s ouster before Biden takes office on Jan. 20. But even if he has left the White House, the Senate could convict Trump and then vote to ban him from running for office again. FIRST AMENDMENT DEFENSEUnder 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. If Trump has left the White House, the Senate could convict him and then vote to ban him from running for office again. FIRST AMENDMENT DEFENSEThe article of impeachment - equivalent to an indictment in a criminal trial - charged Trump with “incitement of insurrection” in his incendiary speech to thousands of supporters on Jan. 6. “High-ranking officials get fired for their speech all the time.”Trump’s team could also argue that holding an impeachment trial after he has left office would violate the Constitution. The House impeached Trump in 2019 on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress stemming from his request that Ukraine investigate Biden and his son Hunter.

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.

“The party is going to be totally broken” if it abandons Trump, Foster says, predicting Trump loyalists will spin off into a new third party. And the choice confronting party leaders as they ponder a renewed impeachment effort – whether to continue backing Trump or make him a pariah – will almost certainly cost the party voters it needs to win future elections, Republican party officials and strategists say. ‘GET OVER IT’Trump has at times been defiant amid the blowback from the Capitol riot. “The president defeated the Republican establishment in 2016 – the Republican Party, in terms of the voters, the movement, is very representative of the president’s agenda,” says Boris Epshteyn, a strategic advisor to Trump. It allowed Trump’s Republican critics to say, “we told you so - Trump is a threat,” Bruesewitz says.

Then it must decide whether this person should be disqualified from holding any future federal office. More than that, the disqualification power is both the primary evidence of and the central reason the Constitution allows for the impeachment of former officers. The House impeached him anyway, concluding that his resignation did not defeat Congress’s impeachment power. And the circumstances of his resignation left no reason to believe that he would ever again be a candidate for federal office. Whether he should be convicted and disqualified remains, under the Constitution, in the sole purview of the Senate.

Could history repeat itself with any members of the Roberts court? Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh fit that description, as do Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Chief Justice Roberts. The most interesting theory about Supreme Court “evolutions” is suggested by a book that has nothing to do with any court. But it came to mind last year as I watched Chief Justice Roberts preside over the Senate’s charade of an impeachment trial. I doubt if there’s anyone in Washington more relieved to see Donald Trump leave the scene than Chief Justice Roberts.

Only three US presidents have faced impeachment before him — Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 were both impeached, while Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached in 1974. The House impeached Trump on two articles on December 18, 2019. Three other presidents have faced impeachment proceedings, but only two have been successfully impeached. On December 19, 1998, the House impeached Clinton for two of the articles — perjury and obstructing justice. Despite being impeached, Clinton refused to step down.

Article 2, Section 2, Clause 1: The president "shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment." President Bill Clinton was impeached during his second term and acquitted by the Senate. Johnson sought a second term but didn't get enough votes at the 1868 Democratic National Convention. However, had he gotten enough votes and won a second term, he could have run for a third term (and more) because the 22nd Amendment hadn't been passed at the time. Editor's note: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated President Trump is the first to be impeached in his first term.

The team around Trump is hollowed out, with the White House counsel's office not drawing up a legal defense plan and the legislative affairs team largely abandoned. WASHINGTON (AP) — His place in the history books about to be rewritten, President Donald Trump awaited his second impeachment — something no other president has faced — largely alone and silent. Trump kept out of sight in a nearly empty White House as impeachment proceedings played out at the heavily fortified Capitol. There were lawyers, White House messaging meetings, and a media blitz run by allies on conservative television, radio and websites. But there was no effort from the White House to line up votes in the president's defense.
