Have you seen those photos of soldiers sleeping on the floor of the Capitol?

I've seen that it's like Fort Knox now with all the barriers up.

I've just seen that photo in my newsfeed.

So the House has voted to impeach him. Can someone explain what this means now? This is a good thing isn’t it? With the exception of the potential civil unrest as a result?

The BBC has a good explainer. They need a 2/3 majority to convict now.

It goes to a senate trial next but the Republican Senate Leader has said that won’t be before Trump leaves office. Even if the trial then succeeds, it doesn’t bar him from standing for a second term in ‘24, that needs a separate senate vote. I’m not sure if he loses his $200k pa presidential pension if the trial succeeds or if that’s dependent on the separate vote.

Conviction wouldn’t mean losing pension, security, travel budget etc. It’s all dependent on a second senate vote.

ETA This is exactly wrong, sorry.

The fact he’s the only president ever to be impeached twice has got to be infuriating for him. Especially as he can’t spill his bile anywhere meaningful.

Mitch McConnell is wavering apparently.

I love CNN :love:

Can’t they call a special session? This needs locking in.

If he is found guilty his two banks won't do any more business with him and the loans are due in the next two years. 300 million to one bank alone...

This was a very good result. Now it goes to the Senate. It's going to a be a very scary week here, but I'm more hopeful for the future than I've been in the last four years. :fc:

I'm really settling in for this. I'm being positive and hoping it will only be bad for Trump and his heinous family rather than more violence for America.

The thing is, that fucker has whipped his moronic followers up to the point that violence was, and sadly remains, inevitable.

But the looming threat of repeated violence shouldn't be seen as a result of anyone's actions but his and those of the GOP for the past 4 years, the impeachment attempt should absolutely go ahead.

I've switched to the OAN now and...oh my. I've never watched this 'news' network before but it is absolutely staggering what they have the nerve to say. The presenters sound like they're drunk/on drugs for starters.
