Same here... still trying to wrap my head around this.

What's the over/under on Trump resigning before Jan 20? I say the odds are good, particularly if he hasn't damaged his relationship with Pence so much that he'll manage to eke out a pardon.

Oh, man, he only has 11 days left. Nothing's going to happen.

And all these assholes are planning to march again on the 20th...which will be even worse than this if they do.

More and more this feels like a proper, organized coup. The rioters who were prepared for stronger resistance and had zip ties, the methodical way they went about this, the cops in the crowd. That one cop that's being chased is leading folks to where he thought (and there should have been) a whole bunch of cops. But then he gets up there and finds himself alone at a door that is never unguarded.

This is what I've been saying and feeling since I watched this unfold live on Wednesday... how is it possible they got so far so fast with so little resistance? I also read this morning that rioters breached the House floor at 2:16 pm, one minute after Capitol Police had finished escorting everyone to safety.

Gallows erected outside, reports of people talking about assassinations, chants of "Hang Mike Pence"... not a good look for the MAGA crowd at all.

And why did it take so long for cops or the National Guard to show up? Who was pulling the strings there?

What was Trump doing, like... minute by minute... as this unfolded?

It's such a weird feeling... I feel like we lived through another 9/11 of sorts? That's what it feels like in my guts, anyway. I also feel conflicted... that something needs to be done now and he needs to be removed from office or forced to resign, but I'm also aware that everything needs to be set up for as smooth a transition to Biden's administration as is possible and he needs to be given space to act quickly on his priorities in the first 100 days.

I guess my fear is the longer consequences for this are held off, the more time Trump and his team/apologists/supporters have to change the narrative... although, this one's gonna be mighty tough for them to change, you know, given that they're domestic terrorists at this point.

And now they're arresting capital hill cops and DoD officials for involvement and collusion.

Quote
Ryan confirmed that there are approximately 10 to 15 Capitol Police officers under investigation for their behavior during the riot, but he did not have specific details.

This was a fucking organized coup.

When that bitch got shot through the throat, the rioters called for a medic...and had medics ready to treat her.

I feel like it's going to take years for all that happened that day to come to light. None of the details that keep coming to light make this seem like just a protest... it was organized and came incredibly close to succeeding in... something.

Watching the House debate impeachment. I know it's a tired cliche, but we really do inhabit two realities in America. The fact that there are Republicans who can muster the nerve to stand up and speak out against impeachment in the interests of "unity" is just astounding to me. They're basically objecting to the rushed process of the impeachment, not the actual offenses themselves. I know I'm a biased liberal, but holy fuck... what does Trump have to do to lose their support if an attempt to violently overthrow the government isn't enough?

Also, bracing for more violence this week...  I will be amazed if we get through inauguration without more bloodshed.

Oh, shit, I was glued to the TV all day yesterday. I couldn't believe some of the GOP. The lunatic ranting and essentially being dragged away from the podium routine is what got me.

Okay, you have a side to argue. But...does it help that side if you act like a rabid madman howling at the moon? All the Dems did these measured, sometimes impassioned speeches with time left over whereas half the GOP thought they were on The Gong Show.

And then the near party line vote. That amazed me as well. Only 10 of them broke ranks? Even their own party leaders are saying we need to "purge" Trump.
