The Republican senator had been helping the president's effort to overturn the election until this week, when Trump incited a mob attack on Congress. Dominion Voting Systems seeks $1.3 billion for the “unprecedented harm” it says Powell brought on by accusing the firm of rigging the 2020 election.
Trumpets Today is an aggregation of recent articles, tweets, and video featuring Donald Trump. This site is not intended to favor left or right viewpoints, but rather a source to absorb the overall sentiment of our President in the news.
1/ House Democrats plan to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump on Monday for “incitement of insurrection.” A draft copy of the impeachment resolution states that Trump “has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office, and thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.” The move follows Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s earlier call for Trump to “immediately” resign for his role in a “horrific assault on our democracy,” adding “If the President does not leave office imminently and willingly, the Congress will proceed with our action.” Pence, meanwhile, privately ruled out invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. With resignations thinning the ranks around him and growing calls for his removal, president says he will depart peacefully on Jan. 20.
4/ Trump condemned the “heinous attack” on the Capitol that he incited and said he would leave office peacefully Jan. 20 after facing bipartisan calls for his removal and pressure from advisers to more forcefully respond to the riot, which left five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer. In his first tweet since getting temporarily blocked for egging on the violence by his supporters, Trump accepted no responsibility for the riot, but instead said: “To those who broke the law, you will pay.” The message came a day after Trump had encouraged the rioters to “go home” but ended with, “I love you.” White House counsel Pat Cipollone, meanwhile, has reportedly considered resigning after warning Trump that he risked legal exposure if he didn’t forcefully denounce the actions of his supporters who attacked the Capitol.
In a separate video played at the Republican National Committee winter meeting, Trump thanked the committee members for their “loyalty.” (Washington Post / New York Times / NBC News / CNN / Wall Street Journal / NPR) Devon decided resigned after learning that Pence opposed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
Twitter also removed the accounts of Michael Flynn, Sidney Powell, and other supporters of Trump who promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory.
