The Trump crazy train is like an e-ride at Disneyland, full of insane contortions and vomit-inducing spins, right down to the very last instant. The latest development is Nancy Pelosi announcing Sunday night that the House would vote on Jamie Raskins 25th Amendment resolution to remove Trump by unanimous consent. Lacking that — and you know it’s not going to pass absent some religious epiphany by Mo Brooks and his crowd — Pelosi will bring an impeachment vote against Trump for inciting a riot at the Capitol last Wednesday. The Hill:

“In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both,” Pelosi wrote in the letter to rank-and-file colleagues. “As the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.”

The timing of the impeachment vote remains unclear.

Not for the first time and not for the last, Jim Clyburn is the voice of reason.

Rep. Jim Clyburn (S.C.), the Democratic whip, suggested earlier Sunday that Democrats could impeach Trump now but delay sending the articles to the Senate, granting incoming President Joe Biden the time to seat his Cabinet and launch his 100-day agenda before an impeachment trial bogs down Congress for an indeterminate length of time.

The larger question is what, if anything, will the MAGAts do? And a more basic question than that, and this may be the brilliance of Pelosi’s move: If Brooks, Nunes, Jordan, Hawley, Cruz, the rest of them come out and defend Trump post-riot, that might spell their doom. The optics of that are deadly. Oh, it’s nice to be the party back in power again. Man, this is starting to feel good!

This is going to be one hell of a week. Or the week from hell.

Yes it does feel good. And they hold off until the full Senate is seated and can further investigate meanwhile. Then after the main stuff gets done, like Covid start, hand it over to the Senate for trial.

After this is done, I never EVER want to hear the word “weak” associated with Nancy Pelosi.

Whatever the MAGA maggots try, everyone will be on the lookout for. Call me inhumane but that is a crowd that TRULY needs an acquaintance with the sort of stuff BLM has had to put up with.

Yes, this starting to feel good. If Trump is apoplectic now, what will he be by the end of the week?

Put it this way: my mother’s wishes for his ill health may finally be answered in a…well, final way.

He’s insane now. I think part of that is the virus…and some may be the steroids he got.

Off topic, but zip ties guy was tracked down and arrested. Amateurs managed to match his body armor to social media posts. Good work, amateur detectives.

And Iconic Zip Tie Guy? Turns out he brought his mom with him to this! Frankly, that was more amateur than the detectives who found him.

I keep a postcard picture of her pointing her finger at that coward across the table telling him she knows he is putin’s puppet. On the fridge. She had them all cowering on the oyher side of the table. I think someday a nice statue of speaker pelosi should decorate the capital building.

Can we make it right after the inauguration…please? And I got that same pic of Madame President.

Lets hope she does! What a disgrace and danger this POS president is to America! He’s trying to go to a mental institute instead of prison!

Everything he tries, he fails. Lifelong pattern without deviation.

It would make a difference in that he’d lose all the perks of post presidency like the security detail, pension, healthcare, travel expenses (purportedly to be $1 million a year), the title, and all other perks.

It would save taxpayers a lot of money they can ill afford to spend on a worthless pos. Then he’d be cut loose to face the legal consequences of his crimes. Indicting a man who’s no longer entitled to be referred to as “president” will be psychologically easier on the American public I think.

WOW! NOW THE DUMPF CAN CALL HIMSELF A WINNER AGAIN. HE WON THE LOTTERY OF THE MOST IMPEACHED PRESIDENT. HE SHOULD BE VERY PROUD.
