>But as senators and House members trapped inside the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday begged for immediate help during the siege, they struggled to get through to the president, who — safely ensconced in the West Wing — was too busy watching fiery TV images of the crisis unfolding around them to act or even bother to hear their pleas. >“He was hard to reach, and you know why? Because it was live TV,” said one close Trump adviser. “If it’s TiVo, he just hits pause and takes the calls. If it’s live TV, he watches it, and he was just watching it all unfold.” >Even as he did so, Trump did not move to act. And the message from those around him — that he needed to call off the angry mob he had egged on just hours earlier, or lives could be lost — was one to which he was not initially receptive. Donald J. Trump needs to be put on trial and jailed for life.

He will do it again for the inauguration. Unless he is stopped.

More impeachment material Edit: and trump is still threatening congress. He’s clearly unstable and dangerous. 80% of Republicans blame “Antifa”. This massive brainwashing needs to be dealt with if America is ever going to be a functional democracy again. I think President Biden should appointment Arnold Schwarzenegger to lead a denazification effort in the US. u/GovSchwarzenegger was a governor of California and he was born in Austria in the aftermath of World War 2. I can’t think of a person MORE qualified for the job It would be a powerful symbol to the rest world. If anyone can reach out to both President Biden and Arnold Schwarzenegger and bring them together. Please make it happen

So, in the attack on Benghazi, investigated 10 times over multiple years, people falsely alleged Hilary told forces to “stand down,” resulting in the loss of 4 American lives. Trump incited a riot that directly resulted in 5 American deaths and sat around in his safe space watching his beloved followers murder a police officer and call for the hanging of his VP. Hold his ass accountable. Edit: Yes, I am aware Libyans died in the Benghazi attack and therefore resulted in more than 4 deaths. How much did the republican investigators care?

> After it became clear that his insurrectionist supporters had breached the Capitol entrances and were storming the Capitol complex, the President willfully refused to provide the relief only he could provide. This would have been a clear order for his insurrectionist supporters to stand down and clear the building, which only he could give, and military and law enforcement assistance that only he as Command-in-Chief could authorize. The article points out a period of 90 minutes to two hours when the POTUS failed to act while the Capitol was under attack by armed insurrectionists. All reports indicate he was watching it live on TV *while* the nation’s National Guard, FBI and military stood by awaiting orders. There is no excuse for this. Don’t give ground on the stochastic terrorism he is clearly guilty of, but press conservatives on this point: “what the fuck was the President of the United States doing for two hours while the nation was under attack?” Edit for visibility from **u/ sibtiger** below: > I feel like these articles need to be putting the timeline of events that day very clearly because it’s incredibly important and damning about what Trump did and didn’t do. Going by this video, for example, they had already been knocking back police barricades before Trump even finished his speech. Bombs were reported at DNC and RNC headquarters at 1:45. Multiple entrances had been breached by 2:15 including by breaking windows. >That is all being reported in real time. Certainly Trump is being briefed on all of it as well. And so at 2:26, he tweets this: > > *Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!*
