lindsey graham is right if we impeach trump then it's a slippery slope to impeaching ghosts
"IF WE IMPEACH GEORGE WASHINGTON, HE WILL HAVE TO GIVE HIS TESTIMONY VIA OUIJI BOARD, AND WHEN DOES IT STOP? IS ANDREW JACKSON TO BE IMPEACHED VIA TABLE KNOCKING? HOOVER VIA CHAIN RATTLING? WHERE DOES THE IMPEACHMENT STOP? THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T IMPEACH" -- lindsey graham, probably
ME: well since we can't *actually* impeach posthumously, i would suggest removing Andrew Jackson, who committed genocide, from the $20 bill--

JIM JORDAN: *crashes through a wall* *shouts in everyone's face* SO THE DEMOCRATS WANT TO CANCEL ANDREW JACKSON

Sorry I didn't get to hear the time Dems/Reps had just now because MY HUSBAND was very loudly saying that if Jim Jordan was assigned to the Republican side, he simply could not watch this. Honestly, who can blame him?

Hey, everyone. Today is the debate and vote on the second impeachment of Donald Jᵉˢᵘˢ ᶜʰʳⁱˢᵗ ʷʰᵃᵗ ᵃ ᶠᵘᶜᵏ ᵘᵖ Trump
OK, they're starting impeachment. 2 hours of debate today, es todo. Then a vote.
Rep McGovern speaking about the events of the 6th. "This was not a protest; this was an insurrection. This was a well-organised attack on our country that was incited by Donald Trump. I will never, ever forget what I saw when I looked into the eyes of the attackers. I saw evil."

How is it possible that I turned on the House debate JUST as Jim Jordan started speaking? Why have the gods cursed me so?
On the PLUS side (there is a plus side), since Jim Jordan is in his own house (this is a remote debate), he is not YELLING. He still sounds like an asshole, but at least my hearing will not suffer.
Sorry, I forgot to be clear, they are currently debating the 25th amendment. The article of impeachment will be considered later in the day, possibly at bedtime for me.

Pro Forma session is about to begin. CSPAN link below. The House will be introducing a number of resolutions pertaining to the insurrection today.
The Sergeant of Arms of the House of Representatives has just submitted his resignation.
House resolution to execute 25th amendment. Immediate objection. So it failed.

And the House is now adjourned.

I see a lot of people saying "now is the time to extend an olive branch to Trump supporters", and I'll illustrate why that makes me angry with yet another NYTimes article following a Trump voter that you should absolutely not click on and give more views.
The cruelty is the point.
The cruelty is all they have.
