Ally of Rep. Greene participated in the Capitol breach

By Andrew Kaczynski and Em Steck | CNN A close ally of Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene took part in the January 6 mob at the Capitol and said he was among those who eventually made their way into the building. Greene, a freshman congresswoman with a history of promoting dangerous and violent conspiracies and comments, encouraged the big lie that the election was stolen from former President Donald Trump by voting to object to the election certification and fanned the flames of the...

Monopoly Place Names Are Just As Redlined As Real Life Cities

To wit: Cyril and Ruth Harvey, “who played a key role in popularizing the game, lived on Pennsylvania Avenue (a pricey $320 green property on the board); their friends, the Joneses, lived on Park Place. … The Harveys employed a Black maid named Clara Watson. She lived on Baltic Avenue in a low-income, Black neighborhood, not far from Mediterranean Avenue. On the Monopoly board, those are priced cheapest, at $60.” – The Atlantic

Democrats’ impeachment filing: Donald Trump ‘threatened the constitutional system’

By Jeremy Herb and Manu Raju | CNN The House impeachment managers argue former President Donald Trump should be convicted for inciting the insurrection at the Capitol last month and barred from holding future office, charging that his actions “threatened the constitutional system that protects the fundamental freedoms we cherish.” The House managers laid out their case against Trump in a pre-trial legal brief filed Tuesday morning, in which they accused Trump of stirring up violence against Con...

The Capitol Mob Was Only The Finale Of Trump’s Conspiracy To Overturn The Election

T he mood was already tense in Detroit’s expansive ballot-counting hall when President Trump tweeted on Nov. 4 that “a terrible thing” was “happening” in Michigan. It was the third day of processing ballots, and that morning Chris Thomas had heard a weird rumor traveling around the counting floor. A fellow election worker told Thomas, who was advising Detroit on its election after serving for 36 years as the state’s election director, that calls were welling on social media and email list...

On Biden’s day, U.S. capital swiftly pivots to life after Trump

WASHINGTON — Quite suddenly, if only for a freeze-frame moment, everything old was new again, starting when Joe Biden stepped outside into his day and Donald Trump vanished inside Air Force One for his flight to private life in Florida. Democratic and Republican leaders worshipped together at church, just one tradition dusted off. The centuries-old rituals of a peaceful transfer of power unfolded from the high platform of the flag-bedecked Capitol, still recovering from insurrection. A law e...

Capitol rioters say Trump told them to do it, which some legal experts say could open him to criminal charges

Getty Multiple people who stormed the Capitol have claimed they did so on the instructions of President Donald Trump, the Washington Post reported. Trump instructed his supporters to come to Washington to attend a "Stop The Steal" rally as he sought to overturn the election, promising his supporters that the protest would be "wild." Leonard M. Niehoff, a First Amendment expert, said that the response to Trump's direct call for supporters to visit the Capitol and "fight" meant the presiden...

Three historic Wednesdays to kick off 2021

Three Wednesdays this year — Jan. 6, Jan. 13 and Jan. 20 — will forever be remembered. On Wednesday, Jan. 6, Congress gathered to count the Electoral College votes formalizing Joseph Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election. The count was infamously interrupted by a mob of enraged Trump supporters called to Washington by the president himself, who whipped them into a frenzy with a flood of thoroughly debunked lies. The president then sent them down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol, wh...

Donald Trump stands largely silent, alone after second impeachment

By JONATHAN LEMIRE, JILL COLVIN and ZEKE MILLER | Associated Press WASHINGTON — His place in the history books rewritten, President Donald Trump endured his second impeachment largely alone and silent. For more than four years, Trump has dominated the national discourse like no one before him. Yet when his legacy was set in stone on Wednesday, he was stunningly left on the sidelines. Trump now stands with no equal, the only president to be charged twice with a high crime or misdemeanor, a new co...

Where do we go from here?

It was shocking but not surprising. Handing the presidency of the United States of America to an intellectually lazy, vengeful narcissist was destined to end badly. And it has. Catastrophically so. Friends of freedom around the world watched in disgust — our enemies with glee — as National Guardsmen were tasked with clearing the halls of the Capitol building as an angry mob of cultists incited by their demigod tried to stop the constitutionally mandated count of electoral votes confirming Joe Bi...

Lessons from a time in which the leader is a loon

It’s so crazy-hard to think about anything else, even these several days later. I mean, when the head of one branch of the government of the United States of America tells a mob of his followers to march down the avenue and attempt to take over another branch of the government, and then the riot in the formerly hallowed halls of the Capitol, once incited, actually takes place — well, it’s enough to make it tough to concentrate on other stuff. It was such a surreal event that it can still be hard...

Dems’ momentum builds to impeach Trump, Pelosi hits rioters

By LISA MASCARO, MARY CLARE JALONICK and ZEKE MILLER WASHINGTON (AP) — Momentum built among Democrats on Saturday for a fresh and fast push to impeach President Donald Trump, even as the House speaker accused his backers who violently invaded the Capitol of choosing “their whiteness over democracy.” Nancy Pelosi’s remark came as Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., one of the chief sponsors of draft impeachment articles accusing Trump of inciting insurrection, said at midday that his group’s draft had ...

The 7 most violence-inciting statements in Donald Trump's speech to the crowd on January 6th.

Here's the transcript. I read the entire speech — which was over an hour — looking for the sentences that are most subject to the interpretation that he was inciting the crowd to break into the Capitol building or commit any sort of act of violence. I'm doing this because I realized I wasn't seeing quotes from Trump, just assertions that the speech was an incitement and cause-and-effect inferences based on the sequence of events: He spoke and then they acted.  There are places where he clearly...

After Trump’s complicity in assault on Capitol, Trumpism is forever doomed

In the rally outside the White House, where Rudy Giuliani called for “trial by combat,” and the president’s son declared, “we need to march on the Capitol today,” President Trump said, “Let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue.” Walking down Pennsylvania Avenue might seem innocuous. But the president knew the environment in which he was speaking. That his followers would, at the end of their walk, attempt to disrupt the certification of the election of Joe Biden could have been predicted. President T...
