It's also being reported that panic buttons were torn out of offices prior to the attack. This wasn't a rally, and I really wish the media would stop calling it that; this was an attempted coup. It was premeditated and planned with the blessing of Trump, who did this to try to remain in power.

Given what we know now it's amazing the statements that Republicans are making today

Days after armed insurrectionists tried to overthrow the US Government, only 10 Republican representatives voted to impeach Trump for organizing and encouraging the attempted coup.

That's all you need to know about the GOP.

I have some comfort knowing that it was the most bipartisan impeachment vote in our nation's history, but disheartened by the small margin. Only 2 more votes than the last one.

The last president was impeached for lying about getting a blowjob; this one sent and armed mob to execute elected officials and overturn a democratic election. There's a big difference between the two and I would hope that the very people chased out of their offices just steps ahead of the mob calling for their deaths might try to find a goddamned spine.

Madam speaker, Today we're here because the President turned a violent mob on us after months of lies. Yet over a hundred years ago in Omaha Nebraska the Ruben Sandwich was invented. Cornbeef, sauerkraut, russian dressing, swiss, on rey bread. If these things can come together...

As dumb as Jim Jordan's speech and yet slightly more on point than saying hey we built planes.

Wait... seriously? Did he actually say something that monumentally stupid about a coup?

I think he'll be acquitted again. I do hope not, but republicans are the most spineless cunts at the moment.
Was there ever any doubt that they will acquit him? I’d love to be proven wrong, but the chances of that happening are slim at best.

Large bitcoin payments to right-wing activists a month before Capitol riot linked to foreign account​

On Dec. 8, someone made a simultaneous transfer of 28.15 bitcoins — worth more than $500,000 at the time — to 22 different virtual wallets, most of them belonging to prominent right-wing organizations and personalities.
