Donald Trump lost the 2020 election. He is the only president* in American history who is one-term, impeached, and lost the popular vote — TWICE. His refusal to concede means that every day the story is that he lost the election.

A majority of American voters have spoken…

President* Trump and Jared Kushner: YOU’RE FIRED.

Now PLEASE wear your masks and stop threatening national security.

“No one is above the law, not even the president of the United States. Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our country. Our oath of office is to protect and defend the Constitution.” @SpeakerPelosi

He will never voluntarily stop. So now it is up to us, our lawmakers, and our laws, to outlaw his serving in future office — and to deal with America’s ongoing epidemic of domestic terrorism that he foments.

In this time-lapse animation, ~40% of smartphones tracked near the January 6th Trump rally “were also in and around the Capitol during the siege — a clear link between those who’d listened to the president* and his allies and then marched on the building.”
January 6, 2021 Trump quotes:

12:16pm — “You’ll never take back our country with weakness.”

2pm — Insurrectionists attacked Capitol

4:20pm — “We love you. You’re very special.”

6pm — “Remember this day forever!”

The Next Day — “Our incredible journey is only just beginning!”
“Over 100 officers seriously injured: Brain injuries, head trauma, one officer lost 3 fingers, another officer because of assault on him is likely to be blind. Officer Sicknick died, blood was spilled, 2 other officers are no longer with us…” @RepJeffries
”We should not establish a precedent where every president on the way out has weeks to try to incite an armed insurrection against the Union and if it succeeds he becomes a dictator.” @RepRaskin

Acquittal means outgoing presidents can be lawless. CONVICT.
January 6 was so much worse than many people realize.

President* Trump violated his oath of office, attacked the democratic process, imperiled Congress, and undermined national security.
