GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnel “The Mob Was Fed Lies” By Führer Trump

A simple majority of members of the House of Representatives was all that was required to pass the one Article of Impeachment charging Führer Trump with the high crimes and misdemeanor and sedition. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has yet to forward the article of impeachment to the United States Senate for a trial and a vote to convict.

A two thirds vote to convict is required to convict. In the United States Senate The final vote therefor would have to be 67 to 33. The United States Senate is split evenly with 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans, but Democrats are in control the Chamber with Vice President Kamala Harris having the power to break any tie meaning all 50 Democrat Senators and 17 Republican Senators would have to vote to convict. Upon conviction, the Senate by a simple majority vote can bar Führer Trump from ever holding any elective office again.


A mere 24 hours before President Joe Biden is to be sworn in as the 46 President of the United States, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had this to say on the Senate floor the last full day of Führer Trump’s presidency:

“The last time the Senate convened we had just reclaimed the capitol from violent criminals who tried to stop congress from doing our duty. The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people. And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like. But we pressed on. We stood together and said an angry mob would not get veto power over the rule of law in our nation, not even for one night. We certified the people’s choice for their 46th president.”


It is clear that Trump is the first fascist ever elected President of the United States who put himself above the law and his own country and who has no respect for our constitution nor free elections. Trump’s strongest and closest allies and supporters need to come to their senses and the realization that Trump is a traitor to his own country, to them, to all of us and to our democracy. Attempting to set aside the vote of the American people was an attempt to undermine our very democracy. It was a coup d’é·tat that failed.

The Senate trial should be very short and should last just a few days. The evidence should consist of the United State Senate seeing and hearing Führer Trump’s January 6 speech followed by all the video coverage of the insurgents breaking into the capitol building. Footage of house and senate members cowering in fear and then being swept to secured locations to remind them they were victims of an insurgency. Evidence of the 6 people who were killed as well as injuries to the capitol police should be presented.

What is shameful and disgusting is that what unfolded on January 6 was an attack on our country, our very democracy, by an elected President of the United States who lost his election for a second term and then attempted a COUP D’É·TAT of his successor who won not only the electoral college vote but the popular vote.

Let’s hope McConnel and at least 16 other Republican Senators along with all 50 Democrats will vote to convict Führer Trump of the one article of impeachment for “willful incitement of insurrection”. But that is not enough. The United States Senate needs to bar him from running for office ever again. If inciting a violent mop to storm the United States Capitol and to commit sedition to hold onto power is not enough to convict the facist, then what the hell is?

The extent of the physical damage is to the United State Capitol is easily repaired. The damage to our democracy by Führer Trump and his coup d’é·tat that failed will take years to recover from.

Führer Trump’s January 6 Speech Was Insurgency To Overthrow Government; Senate Must Vote to Convict And Prohibit Trump From Holding Office
