Ayyeee… What’s Goodie Everyone. So I got some major hot tea and it involves House of Representatives, Donald Trump and impeachment.
The House of Representatives on Wednesday vote to impeach Donald Trump for “incitement of insurrection.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.KY.) indicated his chamber would not hold a trial before Trump leaves office next week. During debate on the House floor, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R.CA.) said Trump “bears responsibility” for last week’s takeover of the Capitol but argued against impeachment so close to the end of his term. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.CA.) called Trump “a clear and present danger” and said “he must go.”
The Republican party though has been in a critical divide due to the insurrection of riots that have occurred on January 6th with six Republican senators claiming that they will impeach Donald Trump or vote to impeach Trump. Rep. Dan Newhouse (R.WA) became the sixth House Republican to announce that he plans to vote for Trump’s impeachment and in a speech on the House floor, Newhouse said he believes the article of impeachment is “flawed, but I will not use process as an excuse.” “There is no excuse for President Trump’s actions. … The president took an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Last week, there was a domestic threat at the door of the Capitol, and he did nothing to stop it. That is why, with a heavy heart and a clear resolve, I will vote yes on these articles of impeachment.”
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) that she’s “not going anywhere” in response to calls from Republican colleagues to oust her from her leadership position in retaliation for announcing that she will vote for Trump’s impeachment.
“I’m not going anywhere,” Cheney told reporters at the Capitol. “This is a vote of conscience. It’s one where there are different views in our conference.”
