QuoteOn Wednesday, our United States Capitol was attacked by a mob of rightwing terrorists. As Republicans inside the chamber sought to tear down our democracy, the violent extremists they whipped up outside tried the very same. This attempted coup is treasonous. Horrifically, it was incited directly by Donald Trump and many of my colleagues across the aisle. The traitors who stormed our nation's Capitol and the politicians who cheered them must forever be branded as seditionists. For months, I have called for the prosecution of Donald Trump and members of his administration for their innumerable crimes against the United States. Throughout his presidency, he endangered our national security. He ripped families apart. He personally profited from his office. He attacked our elections and sought to destroy democracy. Now, he has incited violent insurrection against the People's House. He has engaged in treachery, in treason. He has all but given up on governing and protecting our nation and if he had a shred of dignity he would resign today.Violent fascism at the footsteps of our national legislature was fed by Republicans and years of fomenting extremism against our government. They built this. This authoritarianism will not disappear in 12 days. The long-term preservation of democracy is in our hands right now. It is the challenge of our time to eradicate this poison.The day he is no longer in office Donald Trump and his adjutants must be fully investigated by the Department of Justice. Donald Trump along with his worst enablers must be tried for their crimes against our nation and Constitution. Importantly, any further abuse of the sacred pardon power to shield criminals would itself be obstruction of justice, and any self-pardons would be illegal. We cannot repeat the mistakes of our nation's past by granting amnesty under the illusion of unity. Failure to hold Donald Trump's crimes accountable will only further embolden criminality and continue America down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism.

Quote from: Oexmelin on January 10, 2021, 12:29:53 PMHow many of you have contacted your Senators, and members of Congress? It's the bare minimum right now. The fascists are making themselves heard, I guarantee that.
Quote from: The Minsky Moment on January 10, 2021, 12:39:57 PMMy member of Congress was the guy who wanted Pelosi to refuse to seat the new GOP members of Congress who supported Trump's fraud claims on the ground of sedition *before* the attack on the Capitol.
