Impeachment - Republicans have been threatened 21:14 - Jan 13 with 1453 viewsElderGrizzly

Some Republicans are saying they can’t vote for Impeachment, not because they don’t believe it is deserved, but because they are afraid they or their families will be harmed or killed by Trump’s base.

They have received credible threats to their lives

That means, Jan 6th worked for Trump.

Modern day brown coats. I know it was cold but I found Trumps black gloves, coat etc quite unnerving at his rally.

194 Nays at present. Incredible really given treason was committed. If their role is to uphold the constitution, they’re falling shamefully short in their duties. It shows that there will unlikely be a 2/3s majority next week to remove him from office.

197 Republicans voted against impeachment.

One week ago they were cowering under their own desks in fear after four years of encouraging their thugs.

Not fit for office.

And it is getting more sinister.

Panic alarms were ripped out of some Democrats offices in the Capitol before last weeks’ attack.

How far does the inside job go?

Think it's unlikely to come before the Senate until after the 20th. But the numbers there could be interesting, especially if McConnell backs impeachment (which he is currently said to be considering). Smaller membership of the upper house mean it would only take 17 Republicans breaking ranks to get the two-thirds majority needed.

On 6th Jan, the attempts to reject the Electoral College ballots were either not taken up by the Senate or more heavily defeated there than in the House. Different mindset.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?

Not saying that it's true, but there's absolutely no reason to assume they won't have had help on the inside. Plenty of Senators and House Reps are QAnon nut jobs. Holding office doesn't mean you're not a psychotic thug.

Just watched an interview on CNN with one of the 10 that voted to impeach Trump. A brave man. It seems that the 197 voted against for all sorts of reasons including open support for him, fear of retribution from him or their constituency (can’t remember the American term for it), fear of the GOP, a feeling that let him go away and hopefully it’ll all go away and some that think he did nothing much wrong.

But the chap that spoke on CNN accepted the threat to himself and voted for what he thought was right. Well done him and the other 9. I’m surprised it wasn’t more, but then I never cease to be amazed at the spinelessness of most politicians across the world.

This is tabloid.

Can we have evidence for everything on your op please.

The republicans were never going to vote against their own president en masse. Completely unrealistic.

Please back up up the following

Which republicans are saying they can’t vote for impeachment ?
Who have said they or their families will be harmed or killed by trumps base?

Thanks in advance.

Politico and CNN have both reported that several GOP members told them that they fear for their lives if they don’t vote against. It’s not really that far fetched considering last week they were caving a police officers head in with a fire extinguisher and talking openly about hanging Pence for being a traitor. These people are off the rails.

I would have said the same had I not seen the Congressman interviewed and others on CNN. There is a real sense of fear about what Trump is going to do (and his followers) in the coming weeks and months, not just in Washington. Hopefully nothing and this is the last act of a dreadful 4 years,

But I wouldn’t bet on it. The view seems to be that he never lets an insult pass, always seeks vengeance on those he thinks wronged him. I gather he’s raised nearly $200m in donations to fight his corner.

The bi-partisan system makes the impeachment process a bit pointless if this doesn't work.

A sitting president has been provoking a ridiculous agenda of division and inciting extremists, culminating in what was basically an attempted coup.

I know that was then, but it could be again..

Saw photo yesterday, on Facebook, of a group a republican senator took on a tour of The Capitol building earlier this month. It included several who have been identified as taking part in the invasion.

The biggest problem isn’t the guys who figured prominently in the shown coverage of the incident it is the guys with rucksacks etc who quietly went about whatever tasks they were assigned. There was an article on Wired suggesting computer system may have been compromised.

I bet that was Antifa's fault as well

What a crazy time in America, in fairness whilst we don't quite have Neo-Nazi militants rising, we have had far-right terrorism ourselves with murder of Jo Cox and the attack on a Mosque as well?

There have been plots to kill MP's foiled as well so we certainly have our own problems

He has been impeached, he hasn't as yet been tried and convicted/acquitted

That can happen after the 20th

I for one am very much enjoying these announcements whenever one the goons I watched gurning on TV last week get arrested.

I'll sleep soundly tonight knowing that a) they've ruined their own lives and b) Biden will still be their president next week.



Imagine claiming to be against sexual abuse crimes while supporting the bloke accused of several of them!
