      Reid: “Johnson…is now saying that he wants to hold hostage the national security staff of the incoming president to try to stop the impeachment.”
      Congressman Lieu:
      “This has nothing to do with being “vindictive”. It has to do with deterrence.
      It has to do with our National Security. Future presidents need to know that they CANNOT attempt a coup to hold on to power – and the only time they’re going to try this is after they’ve lost an election. And it simply can’t be that a Senate Is going to say ‘we have no jurisdiction to deal with what presidents do after the presidential elections’. Of course the Senate does. And of course this is Constitutional…there is ample precedence for this.”

    • January 25, 2021 at 12:30 pm

      Reid: “And so if you can get through that first step of being able to say yes, it is constitutional to hold an impeachment process for a president who is out of power, when you move on to step two what is going to be your primary argument for conviction?”
      “So again I wanted to note that not only is it constitutional, but over 150 Constitutional Law Scholars, including conservative members of the Federal Society have signed onto a letter saying this is completely constitutional. And the argument is very simple: Donald Trump the Commander-In-Chief incited an insurrection. It was an attack on our nation’s Capitol to stop Congress from accepting and certifying Electoral College results, and a number of people died. If you’re not going to impeach and convict a President for doing that, it’s not clear to me why you even have that clause in the Constitution.”

    • January 25, 2021 at 12:31 pm

      Congressman Lieu:
      “We’re going to try to get a hundred senators to vote for conviction. Because at the end of the day what happened was not only utterly unacceptable, crimes were being committed instigated by our
      Commander-In-Chief, and this was done to maintain power. And if we don’t do something now, then future presidents in future generations will go ‘Huh I lost the election, let me see what I can do to try to maintain power. Let’s try a coup.” And maybe next time they’re going to be successful. That’s why we have to act strongly and swiftly. And I hope all senators will be open to convict him.”

    WE SAW impeachable trump crimes unfold in real time, using his base to stay in power.
    WE SAW Donald Trump incite violence against United States senators.
    (Now a model for e.g. any state Capitol if he is not convicted.)

    Benen: ”Why Trump’s new Justice Dept scandal matters, even after he’s gone”
    “Trump considered orchestrating a Justice Department coup earlier this month…”

    “As the report explained,
    Jeffrey Rosen, the acting attorney general Trump tapped for the job, refused to go along with any such scheme,
    which apparently led Trump to consider a Plan B:
    he considered a gambit in which he’d fire Rosen and replace him with Jeffrey Clark,
    who led the Justice Department’s civil division, and who’d been “devising ways to cast doubt on the election results and to bolster Mr. Trump’s continuing legal battles and the pressure on Georgia politicians.”….

    “Note, this wasn’t just some random thought experiment. The Times’ report added that there was a “bizarre” presidential meeting earlier this month in which Rosen and Clark made competing presentations,
    which “officials compared with an episode of Mr. Trump’s reality show ‘The Apprentice,’
    albeit one that could prompt a constitutional crisis.”

    Chief Justice John Roberts will not preside over Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, which is scheduled to begin in earnest on Feb. 8.

    Instead, Senate President Pro Tempore, Pat Leahy (Vt.), the most senior member of the Senate Democratic conference will preside over the trial.

    A Senate source said Leahy, a former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is expected to preside at the trial.

    An official with the Hawaii Republican Party resigned on Sunday, taking responsibility for a highly-criticized tweets defending supporters of the QAnon conspiracy theory.

    Edwin Boyette, the vice chair of communications, issued a resignation letter on his personal Facebook page to state GOP chairwoman Shirlene Ostrov.

    “Discussion of some topics is ill suited to the forums of social media, and regardless of intent – only serves to increase conflict and discord,” Boyette wrote. “The discussion of the Q-Conspiracy was an error of judgement, and should not reflect upon the leadership or the members of the Republican Party of Hawaii. The responsibility for that discussion and that error is mine and and mine alone.”

        I read somewhere that Manchin and Sinema have never voted against the Dems when it really mattered, so I’m willing to support the Dems right now. We’ve got to stop this hair-on-fire approach everytime the Dems don’t do what we want when we want them to. Sigh.

    Andrew Weissman, who helped bring the original criminal charges against Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, and Roger Stone, now says that Trump’s pardons of Manafort and Stone leave the door wide open for additional federal criminal charges to be brought against them. He also adds that Steve Bannon’s pardon leaves the door open for additional federal charges against him.

    Remarkably, this isn’t even due to the state charges that can be brought separately, or due to potential legal challenges to preemptive pardons or co-conspirator pardons. Weissman says that these pardons are simply written poorly and don’t cover much. He contrasts this with the Flynn pardon, which he says protects Flynn more broadly.

    So nice to no longer start the day turning on your computer to find out what fresh hell will be visiting us today. I have faith in Joe, his admin. and in the new urgency and resolve of the House and Senate dems. Everyone learned from how the republicans treated them and us during the Obama years (fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me) and the insurrection and its aftermath have shown them just how vile their republican counterparts are and they are ready to get shit done come hell or high water. The rest of us can help by having faith, encouraging them with calls, emails, and social media postings and avoiding hair on fire postings. They all know even better than we what needs to be done, the challenges involved in bringing things to fruition as well as the limits of what is possible. They have the horror of having to work with people that frankly, many of them fear. They know that people they see and have to work with everyday brought horror, death and destruction to their workplace and that they are unrepentant. Imagine having to work with people who almost got you killed and having to be civil. We all need to give them some slack, some room as they maneuver through these perilous times.
