Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) office told Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer's (D-N.Y.) staff on Wednesday that the GOP will not agree to reconvene the Senate before Jan. 19 to allow an impeachment trial while President Trump is still in office. A senior Senate Republican aide confirmed that McConnell's office reached out to Schumer's office to relay the message that Republicans will not agree to a Friday session to enable House Democrats to present an article of impeachment to the Senate while Trump is in office.

While Mitch’s refusal is a good thing, he has had a lot of practice doing nothing so it surely wasn’t much of a strain.

I'm surprised the rat did the right thing. And, Schumer, "this is a time of emergency!". Dems are aways pushing a crisis narrative to try to get their way. If they were TRULY worried about more violence from "Trump supporters", impeaching Trump is the last thing they'd want to do.

You folks are missing the entire point of the impeachment efforts and all the frenzied attacks by the Democrats...they keep the Republicans on the defensive and totally shut off any attempts to question or audit any voting fraud before the magic moment on January 20 when they take over everything and have (most importantly) the intelligence agencies, DOJ, and the military at their complete command. They want to eliminate any possibility that Trump will make a move to stop them at the last minute by force while he still is Commander in Chief. This isn't just the usual noise and Democrat goofiness. They are intimidating almost all the Republicans in Congress and controlling almost all legislative action with their aggressive charges and actions. The Republicans are helpless waifs and have no clue how they're being steamrolled.

#12, their "logic" (and I use the term very loosely since Demon-Rats are mentally incapable of actually applying logic, reason, or facts to anything) is that if they start the impeachment process in the Senate before President Trump leaves office, they honestly believe they are allowed to complete it even after he is out of office. Yes, it's illogical and illegal. But when they stack the Supreme Court, anything the lie-berals want can then be declared "constitutional". So don't count anything out at this point!!!

As someone posted yesterday, let the Senate hold an impeachment trial after Donald Trump is out of office. The Republicans will then be permitted to hold a trial with witnesses. At the trial, Trump's lawyers will finally be able to present evidence of the massive election fraud. If that happens, then this impeachment farce will bite Nancy in her botoxed hiney.

They can review evidence day and night for eternity, it won’t change the fact that Harris is an illegitimate President, and it won’t change the fact that our votes are meaningless both in this last election and then going forward. The Republicans have been complicit in this - they don’t want to break the model, Because it’s too lucrative for all involved.

Thanks for nothing, Mitch "No Balls" McConnell. You are now NOT a Republican senator but a member of the Politburo. No doubt, since you are bought and paid for by the CCP, you will rubber stamp the most outrageously unconstitutional "legislation." And if challenged at the SCOTUS, CJ Commissar Roberts will dig deeply into blank sheets of paper in front of him and call it a "tax."

Workers installed razor wire atop 7-foot fencing around the US Capitol on Friday as part of an unprecedented fortification effort ahead of next week’s inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. National Guard members are also being sent to Washington, DC, from as far away as Hawaii to provide security, with Maj. Gen.

It’s no secret that Facebook constantly censors content, but a recent investigation from Vice has the outlet suddenly upset that censorship might even happen to them. The platform has reportedly censored some groups just for using the word “men” and liberals don’t grasp the irony that they can’t say “men are trash.” Vice’s investigation claimed that Facebook is “cracking down” on groups “dedicated to discussing everyday injustices in the patriarchal world that we live in.” These groups reportedly violated “Facebook’s standard for hate speech for seemingly simply mentioning the word ‘men.’” By saying bad things about “men” as a group, not individual men.

The highly contagious variant of the coronavirus first seen in the United Kingdom will become the dominant strain in the United States within about two months, its rapid spread heightening the urgency of getting people vaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicted Friday in its most sobering warning yet about mutations in the virus. In every scenario explored by the CDC, the U.K. strain, which British researchers estimate is roughly 50 percent more transmissible than the more common coronavirus strain, will account for a majority of cases in the United States by some point in March.

FORT WORTH, Texas — A retired Air Force officer who was part of the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol last week carried plastic zip-tie handcuffs because he intended “to take hostages,” a prosecutor said in a Texas court on Thursday. “He means to take hostages. He means to kidnap, restrain, perhaps try, perhaps execute members of the U.S. government,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Weimer said of retired Lt. Col. Larry Rendall Brock Jr. without providing specifics. The prosecutor had argued that Brock should be detained, but Magistrate Judge Jeffrey L. Cureton said he would release Brock to home confinement.

Rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol Jan. 6 intended to "capture and assassinate elected officials," federal prosecutors said in court documents filed late Thursday. The contention is the latest and most alarming claim from law enforcement addressing the threat posed by the mob that descended on Congress during the count of the state-certified Electoral College vote of President-elect Joe Biden's election victory. The recent court filing centers on Jacob Anthony Chansley, also known as "Jake Angeli" and the "QAnon Shaman," who led part of the riot.

Federal and state law enforcement agencies are bracing for violence planned by radical conservatives and extremists in Washington in the days before the inauguration. And while significant preparations have been put in place around the U.S. Capitol, there is growing concern that statehouses around the country will be targeted, many of which have already been the scene of armed protests, arrests and violence. More than a dozen flyers are circulating online advertising pro-Trump rallies at state Capitols, according to social media analysis by NBC News. “Freedom is a right,” one popular flyer reads; “Refuse to be silenced,” says another.

They’re going after some of the thousands who were there peacefully and were not involved in any illegal acts.

The Federal Aviation Administration said there has been “a disturbing increase in incidents where airline passengers have disrupted flights with threatening or violent behavior. These incidents have stemmed both from passengers’ refusals to wear masks and from recent violence at the U.S. Capitol.”
