#Breaking - The House, in a largely party-line 223-205 vote, called on Pence to invoke 25th Amendment to push Trump out of office. Pence has already rejected those calls and the measure carries no force of law. Next: Trump will be impeached tomorrow for “inciting an insurrection”— Manu Raju (@mkraju) January 13, 2021

Liz Cheney: "The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President...I will vote to impeach the President."— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) January 12, 2021
Everyone with a functioning brain condemned Trump's speech last Wednesday before hundreds of his supporters heeded his call and attacked the Capitol (resulting in five deaths) in an attempt to stop the certification of Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 election.
Rep. John Katko (R-NY) from House floor on supporting impeachment of President Trump:"To allow the President of the United States to incite this attack w/o consequences is a direct threat to the future of democracy. For this reason,I will vote to impeach this president tomorrow." pic.twitter.com/2I168Bh3Tf— Craig Caplan (@CraigCaplan) January 13, 2021
(a) said his speech was "totally appropriate" (just like the "perfect" phone call that led to his first impeachment;(b) took no responsibility for inciting an insurrection that left five people dead; and(c) in defiance of his advisers, threatened Congress if any attempt is made to remove him from office (the House voted on Tuesday night) to recommend removal.
After Trump's advisers cautioned him to tone down his rhetoric, Trump in Texas is threatening Biden with the 25th amendment and again warning impeachment will cause "tremendous anger and division and pain."— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) January 12, 2021
"What I said was totally appropriate" is the new "perfect phone call" https://t.co/YsFicVkxmx— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) January 12, 2021
Asked what is his own role in the Capitol insurrection, Trump responded, “So if you read my speech, and many people have done it, and I’ve seen it both in the papers and in the media, on television, it’s been analyzed, and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate.”— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) January 12, 2021
President Trump takes no responsibility for insurrection at the US Capitol, which led to 5 deaths, sharing his view that his comments were "totally appropriate" when he encouraged his supporters to go to the Capitol. pic.twitter.com/PdZfzSqKRn— NBC News (@NBCNews) January 12, 2021
Q: "What is your role in what happened at the Capitol? What is your personal responsibility?"

NEWS CORP AUSTRALIA: "New York Times best-selling author, journalist and lawyer Seth Abramson dissected the President's speech on January 6 and found numerous examples of incitement—some subtle, and others far more direct." https://t.co/4dEENbRSMz— Seth Abramson (@SethAbramson) January 12, 2021
Final count: 107 false or misleading claims in the Jan. 6 speech. Kudos to local newspapers like the Detroit Free Press and Philadelphia Inquirer which dissected in detail Trump's false claims about their states. https://t.co/6HNNiyA2aL— Glenn Kessler (@GlennKesslerWP) January 12, 2021
Too much attention on the speech. Too little attention on Trump's deliberately preventing aid from going to the Capitol while the insurrectionists were storming the building and chasing down members of Congress https://t.co/3FcdNttBlF— Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) January 12, 2021
3⃣As of Jan 2020 (1 yr ago) @humanrights1st had tracked at least 816 public reports of murder, torture, rape, kidnapping, and other violent attacks against asylum-seekers and migrants returned to Mexico under MPP.— RAICES (@RAICESTEXAS) January 12, 2021
Trump's take: "MPP saved countless lives from crime." 🤦🏾♀️
We won't forget Trump's words today and we hope you don't either:— RAICES (@RAICESTEXAS) January 12, 2021
"We empowered ICE and CBP. We got them up. They love what they do, they love their country."
After dismissing talk of his second impeachment as "a witch hunt," Trump says "now I would like to briefly address the events of last week" and adds, "We believe in the rule of law, not in violence or rioting." He then moves on with his speech. Weird stuff.— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) January 12, 2021
So, Trump spent about 20 seconds at the top of his speech offering a passionless denunciation of rioting, then moved on bragging at length about his border wall as if this is just a normal speech. pic.twitter.com/ZlNTXpdbbk— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) January 12, 2021

Just because it ended badly doesn’t mean we should hold the Terrorists accountable.
NEW: NYC says it's looking for ways to cancel Trump Org's contracts to run a golf course, ice rinks and a children's carousel at city parks.— David Fahrenthold (@Fahrenthold) January 12, 2021
You laugh, but those contracts bring Trump $17M per year.https://t.co/gHWZ6neV1d
And for the final stake in the heart of Hannity, Laura Ingraham notes at the top of her show that Fox News has confirmed the New York Times' reporting.https://t.co/42FOm4fcVq— Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) January 13, 2021
It just owns that Fox News is back to inviting Dershowitz on-air as they look for anyone to defend Trump at this point. pic.twitter.com/3rPNiwhzob— Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) January 13, 2021
