Post insurrection: Impeachment, national secrets, and Republican mutiny

If you rested for a mere few hours this week, you couldn’t keep up with it. The last time I looked at Steve Lookner, his bloodshot eyes were giving out from endless hours of broadcasting online!

The mayhem that ensued during the Battle of the Don was the only thing on the nation’s (and world’s) mind since January 6 when the Capitol Hill mob attacked Washington DC..

Since then, countless MAGA supporters, including the man who sat in Nancy Pelosi’s office and the other who cheerfully stole her podium, have been arrested.

Donald Trump has been removed from Twitter for the rest of his life. Thousands of other accounts related to QANAN have been purged. Google, Apple, and now Amazon have deplatformed Parler after a number of posts were made on that site showcasing attempts to organize further mass violence.

A few points of information necessary for consideration:

CNN reporting that the pro-Trump riot was more violent than it first seemed.

There was so much news that it was hard to process: Reports of explosive devices, an armed standoff, a shooting and evacuations. Viewers were able to see some of it with their own eyes, but most of the information was secondhand, from tweets and phone calls and emailed dispatches from congressional reporters, many of them locked in the Capitol..

Only later did it become clear that lawmakers feared for their lives; that some of the attackers were hunting for congressional leaders; that there could have been a massacre.

And hunting Mike Pence, the Vice President?

Several have pondered whether Trump’s words in his January 6 speech to his followers was meant to create a hostile coup and a dangerous plot to murder his own vice President! Immediately as the violence began, Pence was ushered out and hidden for safety..

An extremely important and remarkable Twitter thread from Seth Abramson not only documents some important moment’s from Trump’s speech that professors will study for decades to come, but how some of the anger was purposely directed at Pence for the crowd to get hidden messages..

The Department of Justice is warning that national secrets may have been stolen by MAGA..

Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) said at least one laptop had been stolen from his offices, while another protester was seen brandishing Pelosi’s mail outside the Capitol in the aftermath.

The Senate Parliamentarian’s office was ripped apart by the rabble, with footage showing the floor of her rooms covered in files taken from drawers and cabinets.

And finally, developing late Saturday.. Impeachment II may have a friend in the Senate for conviction: PA Senator Toomey..

“I do think the President committed impeachable offenses,” Toomey told Fox News. The senator, who has said he is not going to run for reelection in 2022, would not say whether he would vote to impeach Trump should there be a Senate trial, saying he is not certain what kind of articles of impeachment would be passed by the Democrat-led House of Representatives.

Toomey said he believes Trump’s “behavior this week does disqualify him from serving. But we’ve got 10 days left, 11 days left.””I don’t know whether logistically it’s actually really even possible or practical and I’m not sure it’s desirable to attempt to force him out, what a day or two or three prior to the day on which he’s going to be finished anyway,” Toomey said. “So I’m not clear that’s the best path forward.”
