"There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.”

Hold on, you’re peaking too early; he’s still got another week.

If there has never been a greater betrayal, I assume Ms. Cheney also feels anyone who contributed to that betrayal, no matter how “inconsequential”, should also be punished.

I look forward to her asking for the removal of the 139 House members who voted against the legitimate electors and tried to deny them their vote.

The dam might finally be breaking after all these years.

Sam Stein speculated that Trump not being on Twitter might have helped stiffen their spines. That would be so stupid if it’s actually True though.

It’s a question of survival in the post Rump era in politics. McConnell said it best.

They’re pushing him to resign.

Backdoor discussions worked with Nixon, Trump needs a 2x4 to the head.

They didn’t vote to impeach the first time. They are simply taking note of donors who are bailing. Liz Cheney is gunning for the Speaker role or President in 2024.

This is snowballing fast. I foresee Mike Pence being sworn in on either Thursday or Friday.

Cheney represents the establishment faction of the GOP (Punish Trump), trying to wrest control of the party from the MAGAt faction (Forgiveness and National Unity) that want to continue espousing Trumpism even if Trump is gone. It’s going to be amusing to watch in the same way a dog fight is.
