Let’s be clear, inciting sedition, even if it might be protected by the 1st amendment, and I am not sure, I am an engineer, not a lawyer dammit,* but it can still be a legitimate charge for an impeachment.
So I do approve of the new impeachment charges that the House just delivered to the Senate.
If he is convicted, he loses his pension, and his secret service protection, and it would likely result in his being forbidden from holding office ever again.
I will note that impeachment is, and has always been intended to be, a political process in addition to being a quasi-judicial process, and the Democrats must jam up the Republicans as much as is humanly possible.
Make them pay for their obsequious prevarication with regard to Trump:
Nine House managers walked across the Capitol to inform the Senate that they were ready to prosecute the former president for “incitement of insurrection.” And the Justice Department opens inquiry into an “improper attempt” by officials to overturn the presidential election.
At this point, even many members of the “Q Collective” have realized that Trump screwed them, and in the still quite spaces the Republican establishment wants him gone too.
Making this establishment go to the mat for an inverted traffic cone is just desserts.
