Impeachment Redux: Open Thread; UPDATE: IMPEACHED, 232-197

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:29 am



As I write this, Rep. Mace, who had denounced Trump early on, has opposed impeachment on process grounds. A real disappointment. Meanwhile there is a suggestion that actual House members might have aided the insurrectionists’ plan:

One Congresswoman has claimed she saw members leading insurrectionists on a “reconnaissance” tour of the Capitol on January 5, the day before the insurrection.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. I’d be cautious about this one. But if it’s true . . . oh my.

UPDATE: President Trump has been impeached a second time. The vote in the House was 231-197. Ten Republicans voted yes.

UPDATE: Seeing reports it was 232 yes votes. Updating the title.
