    Heavily-armed U.S. troops stake out Capitol ahead of Trump impeachment vote amid ‘severe security threat’

    Hundreds of fatigue-clad National Guard troops, many armed with long guns, were posted inside the U.S. Capitol ahead of an expected vote to impeach President Trump on Wednesday, as lawmakers warned that the building remains under a “severe security threat” in the wake of last week’s deadly attack.

    Roughly 2,000 National Guard soldiers were on site Wednesday morning, and many of them were seen napping and catching some downtime on the marble floor in the Capitol’s visitors center, as the House began debate on one impeachment article charging Trump with inciting last week’s riot.

    The troops expect to stay overnight at the Capitol and have not received specifics about the length of their deployments, a source familiar with the matter said.

    They may be in for the long haul, as Pentagon officials said the Defense Department is expecting to have 20,000 National Guard soldiers in Washington by President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next Wednesday. That’s more than the number of U.S. troops currently stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq combined.

    According to a source, some of the soldiers at the Capitol are wielding M4 assault rifles.

    New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, the No. 5 Democrat in the House, said the major show of force is justified, with FBI and other law enforcement agencies are warning that far-right groups may be planning more attacks.

    “The attackers wanted to assassinate Nancy Pelosi, hang Mike Pence, and hunt down sitting members of Congress. That’s insurrection. That’s sedition. That’s lawlessness. That’s terror. It should not and will not be tolerated. And that’s why extraordinary security measures have been taken,” Jeffries told reporters. “The Capitol has responded in an appropriate way to meet the nature of the severe security threat that is being posed by domestic terrorists and white supremacists.”

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), whose office was ransacked during the attack, personally thanked some of the rioters during a morning ceremony outside the Capitol.

    “Even during this dark time in the history of America,” Pelosi tweeted along with photos from the ceremony. “Thank you for your commitment to our American democracy.”

    The ramp-up in security marks a sharp contrast to last Wednesday’s assault, when Capitol Police officers were outnumbered by thousands of rioters who stormed the building directly after Trump encouraged them to “fight” to stop the congressional certification of Biden’s inauguration going on inside.

    A Capitol Police officer was killed in the ensuing chaos, when one of the rioters flung a fire extinguisher that hit the law enforcer in the head. An arrest has not yet been made in the officer’s death.

    One attacker was also shot and killed during the mayhem, and three others died from medical emergencies.

    Despite facing all but certain impeachment for inciting the attack, Trump insisted Tuesday that his pre-riot speech was “totally appropriate.”

    People doubted that Trump would get elected.

    If you had told people a year ago that Trump would not only try his damnedest not to leave after losing the Election but would invoke an violent insurrection, you would have been laughed at and doubted as a Leftist lunatic.

    Nothing about Donald Trump is predictable. If there ever was a President who was going to break the pattern with odds at seeing a jail cell being high, Donald Trump is that POTUS.

    Five people are dead directly because of him and the lies he perpetuated.

    He’s been Impeached yet again. Nobody in your country’s history has seen that happen.

    If the Senate votes to remove him, charges of some kind are laid within six months.

    Nothing at all will happen to Donald J trump.

    Nothing.

    He may have fucked up but he’s still got clout because he knows where the bodies are buried.

    More than likely.

    Still. I wouldn’t bet my money on it.

    Would you?

    Yes. Because he has seen papers and stuff that 1/10 of 1/10th of 340,000,000 people haven’t that probably incriminates the government in too much shit. He probably knows what really happened to Kennedy. He probably knows shit that could easily start a war with another country in progress now. Spies, assets, infiltrations. You get the gist. So it’d be in the best interest of the incoming administration and government to back off and let his ass retire.

    He’ll be dead before he gets charged. (NOT BY ME, BY CIA OR WHATEVER)

    Bet.

    So now that the next step for the Impeachment process is to send it to The Senate, can anyone weigh in why McConnell won't take it up until probably sometime in February? I don't see what difference doing it now or next month will have on inflaming the crazies any further. Biden and the Dems are going to have their hands full in the coming months with the Covid relief and trying to better organize testing and vaccine rollout on a Federal level even if they do "split" work days in The Senate trying to accomplish that stuff and impeachment hearings.

    As far as I can guess, the primary reasons is because by the end of this month, the Senate will be controlled by Schumer and the narrow lead of the Dems both taking some heat off of McConnell as well as possibly getting a couple more Dem votes to get the required majority?

    232-197 to impeach with 10 Republicans breaking ranks. That's the largest number of people to break party in any impeachment. There were 0 Democratic votes for Johnson, 0 Republican votes in Trump's first impeachment, 5 Democratic votes in Clinton's impeachment.

    Officially, 50% of the 4 Presidential impeachments so far are of Donald Trump.

    On the other hand, can you imagine Trump going public with such highly classified info? I mean, what if he says "Area 51 does have alien spacecraft and alien remains, your government has been shipping out placebo Covid vaccines instead of actual vaccines, MLK and JFK survived their assassinations and are having daily tea together in some safehouse in France, etc etc etc." I mean, he could go full on scorched earth I don't care about my future and say anything, true or not and there's a segment of the population that's going to buy into whatever nutty shit he spouts in the future.

    Best I can come up with is by not fast tracking it, it fucks with Biden's first 100 days.
