The House of Representatives is on track to impeach President Trump for the second time in 13 months — which would make him as the only president to receive the rebuke twice.

This time, though, impeachment could be bipartisan. Republicans all opposed the House vote in December 2019, arguing that it was politically driven. But now some GOP lawmakers are joining Democrats in pointing the finger at the president for using rhetoric that helped spark a violent insurrection at the Capitol last Wednesday that left at least five dead.

The impeachment resolution on the House floor Wednesday includes one article, citing “incitement of insurrection,” will be debated on the House floor. Sponsors of the resolution maintain they have the votes already to pass it.

The resolution states: “President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of Government. He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of Government. He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”

  1. Why is it okay for Sheila Jackson Lee to get up there and admit that she’s paraphrasing something? Paraphrasing means she made it up! She didn’t say what the president said. She is a a lying democrat, which is actually sort of an oxymoron.

  2. Yemach shemam all of them! Long live our great president — the great, beloved Donald John Trump! And to any idiotic commenter: I’m not just saying that stam. I turned on the livestream above for just one two minutes and OH MY GOSH — what the sicko dems are saying is so disgusting and horrible and disgraceful and outrageous… they are such reshaim! They mamesh are insinuating that the president was attempting to OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT! A-R-E- T-H-E-Y I-N-S-A-N-E?!?!?!?!?!?! YEMACH SHEMAM!

  3. The way these people are speaking is literally treasonous!
    The only thing they need to discuss is whether Trump significantly incited the riot or not, and whether that is an impeachable offence.

    Their disgustingly disrespectful analysis of his personality, or their critique of how he ran the rest of the previous 4 years, should have zero bearing on this discussion.

    This process is run like a joke, and these people are being guided by their emotions, not the law. Pathetic!

  4. Why is the blood of the capitol police more red in the eyes of the democrat’s leadership than the blood of the Portland Seattle or Chicago police?
    Because the capitol police are supposed to be protecting them!!
    So all they care about is themselves…these people are deeply hypocritical and are are all sheker.

  5. I protest all the people using the impeachment process for completely political-opinion motivated actions.
    I protest banks acting in a completely political-opinion motivated action.
    I protest social media blocking free speech in a completely political-opinion motivated action.

    Personal opinions and feeling , no matter how strong, aren’t reason enough to destroy the fabric of this great country.

  6. Of course what the mob did in the capital is acceptable and they should be punished, but i do think that the HOUSE-CONGRESS is a complete waste of time and ALL about politics, what in the world do the Dems do for us

    nothing at all

    shut down that building what are we paying for???

  7. Why isn’t the congress dealing with really important issues like getting the vaccination & available for every American without any further delay.
    & far as going after mobs, why are all the mobs from last year June who burned Macy’s & other stores still at large? You fool pelosi cannot pick & choose, and apply different standards.

  8. YWN will probably have more news updates than CNN after Trump leaves. No one one will know what to do with themselves (pass healthcare? help the economy? nah- that stuff is too boring for congress already, look how much fun they’re having today!). They will need to sign an deal with him to run in 2021 even if he’s not interested.

  9. I get it, everyone. When riots burn down and destroy personal property and buildings of regular citizens, those “peaceful protests” are to be encouraged by Democratic poliiticans and anyone who objects is denying people their rights to free speech. But when the same demonstrations threaten security of Congress members that’s called an insurrection and the supporters must be forcibly punished. Yeah, I get it now.

  10. Oi Vey, they “Attacked” the “Kremiln”, The FBI is going to catch any individual who “Trespassed” the holy palace of the Monarchy, and the courts are going to sent to hard labor in Alaska all the dark forces who tried to “overthrow” the Democratic Peoples Republic of America.

    The BLM ? You make the heads of the FBI laugh. What point is there to arrest people who only acted out against civilians and endangered their lives ? Since when does a totalitarian regime care about their citizens ? Were you born in America ? Maybe Obama did

  11. Something is bothering me to no end. I didn’t hear anyone make this point – not that I hear much – . Did ANYONE charge the president with incitement before the ‘invasion ‘ or only after the fact did everyone realize that the president is to blame? Also, if the president is the one that called for it, why did such a small minority of his supporters go along?

  12. President Trump said “peaceful” demonstration BEFORE the march.

    There has to be personal accountability, he cannot be blamed for what others decided to do.

    The democrats-they allowed mayhem, deaths and rioting, and robbery. for months and months all over the USA and assisted the troublemakers in the recent march on the capitol by having few police, deliberately hoping for just such a result in order to blame the President,

    Washington DC, the state, is run by the democrats, they were hoping for such a result.

  13. @kinsler: Anyone who accuses the president of incitement or sedition is insane. However, I don’t really agree with your argument; they had no time to accuse the president before the invasion because they were all in session and it happened so quickly. There was no real in-between time.

  14. Kinsler nobody charged the President with incitement before because everyone understood that there was no incitement, it is a lie and it is mindboggling how such a lie is being bought by so many grown up politicians including some Republicans and by President elect Biden who instead to unify the country he chooses to support the lies and the narrowmindness of the Democratic party politicians. We know that ziknei am haaretz how older they get the more stupid they get, that is happening now to Biden and Pelosi who instead to play the adult in the room and call for calm and peace and a new start they choose to start the new Presidency with childish fighting (the impeachment will anyway not work out in the senate) and dividing the nation further and further.
