Could Trump be removed for inciting Capitol riot? | DW News

Unprecedented - and deadly - scenes at the Capitol in Washington DC - where supporters of President Trump stormed the building in a bid to overturn the election results.
One woman was shot and later died of her injuries, as rioters attempted to stop Congress members from certifying Joe Biden's election victory.
Chaos unraveled on Capitol Hill as the building was stormed by hundreds of Trump supporters.
A battle ensued between riot police and the protesters as they broke past security.
They stormed the Senate chambers to prevent Congress from certifying Joe Biden's election victory - literally bringing democracy to a halt.
Police then drew their guns. A woman was shot by police officers - and was later proclaimed dead.
Some protesters also turned their anger against the media.
Earlier at a rally near the White House, President Trump had repeated his unsubstantiated claims that the election had been stolen from him - and urged his supporters to rally at the Capitol.
Hours later Trump then released a recorded message telling his supporters to go home but failed to condemn their actions.
Trump has now been suspended from several social media accounts, including Twitter, after tweeting to supporters who attacked the Capitol.
When lawmakers finally got back into the Senate chambers, several senior republicans condemned then violence. Including Trump's vice president Mike Pence.
The violence was branded as a siege by President-elect Joe Biden, who warned of the threat to democracy.
The crowds dissipated once the 6pm curfew came into force, but National Guard troops remained alert for potential violence throughout the night.

  • There are no thugs, only tyranny! Five demands are indispensable. Restoring America, revolution of the times! 1. Acknowledge the fact that the Democratic Party cheated in the presidential election and deny that Biden was elected President of the United States 2. Withdraw the "riot" characterization. 3. Overthrow the existing electoral vote system and realize one-person, one-vote true universal suffrage. 4. Establish an investigation committee to thoroughly investigate the police's violent law enforcement. 5. Immediately implement the second US presidential election and ensure fairness and democracy.

I'm still trying to make sense of that incident.

    TheFirstManticoreTheFirstManticore14 päivää sitten
  • If he is removed, so too should be Pelosi, Maxine Waters etc for actively, on tape calling for violence against Trump supporters. Trump didn't incite anything. He invited people to come to the capital and do what conservatives do. Stand outside and let themselves be seen and their voices heard. Looking back at all the protests, there's only 1 group that destroys property while protesting... Democrats and thier "mostly peaceful" arson, assault, vandalism, looting, murder.

  • Freunde der Sonne: Dass die "Demokraten" nicht vor systematischer Wahlfälschung zurückschrecken, das ist mittlerweile bekannt, dass sie derzeit von Angst getrieben zu sein scheinen, und deshalb alle abgetakelten Ehemaligen aus dem Keller ans Tageslicht holen, um sie vorgeschriebene Skripte, die so bescheuert sind, dass man wirklich Mitleid mit den Minderbemittelten haben kann, die dafür verantwortlich sind, vorlesen zu lassen, wird auch immer deutlicher, dass sie in ihrem Bemühen, Donald Trump zu diskreditieren, nicht einmal davor zurückschrecken, auf den Gräbern der Opfer des Nationalsozialismus herumzutrampeln und den Nationalsozialismus und mit ihm den Holocaust zu verharmlosen, das ist eine neue Entwicklung, eine Entwicklung, die der Tatsache geschuldet ist, dass ruchlose Linke vor nichts zurückschrecken, wenn es um den Griff nach dem, was sie für Macht halten, geht. Indes, die Absurditäten, die dabei herauskommen, zeigen nur, dass diese Leute nicht über die Intelligenz verfügen, um mit Argumenten und mit rationalem Diskurs zu überzeugen. Sie haben nur den Appell an Emotionen und mit diesem Appell erreichen sie nur diejenigen, die genauso dumm sind, wie sie selbst. 20/4
