The historic second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is underway in the United States Senate.
Not only is Trump the first president in the history of the United States to be impeached but he’s also the first to be impeached for inciting a riot.
For months and months, Trump and his allies told his cult about how the election was stolen from him, how he was cheated and sycophants in the media also pushed his lies. Then on Jan. 6, Trump incited his followers to “fight like hell” and told them march on down to the Capitol as lawmakers were attempting to certify Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election.
And the rest, as they say, is history. Jan. 6, 2021 will remain as one of the darkest days in our nation’s history.
Now, the United States Senate will decide whether to convict Trump, whether he was responsible for the deadly riot.
Spoiler alert: He’s 100% guilty. But with people like Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and others very similar, most Republicans will vote against conviction.
But Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger can’t understand how anyone could vote against Trump’s conviction.
