So... when the President does it, it is not illegal?

Gravlen wrote:First GOP lawmaker calls for invoking 25th Amendment to remove Trump

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) on Thursday became the first GOP lawmaker to call for invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.

It came a day after a pro-Trump mob stormed and ransacked the U.S. Capitol in a futile bid to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Kinzinger, an Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran who continues to serve in the Air Force, lay blame for the insurrection at the feet of the president himself, who had urged his supporters to march on the Capitol.

"Here’s the truth. The president caused this. The president is unfit and the president is unwell. And the president now must relinquish control of the executive branch voluntarily or involuntarily," Kinzinger, a centrist Republican and frequent Trump critic, said in a video message posted on Twitter.

Okay, so they played some of Pelosi's speech. The threat of impeachment was if the cabinet doesn't remove Trump, she will.

Biden expected to nominate Rhode Island governor Gina Raimondo as Commerce secretary, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh as Labor secretary.

If confirmed Lt Governor Daniel McKee will assume the governorship and City council president Kim Janey will become acting mayor. Janey is considered a possible candidate for mayor this year.

Party of law and order:

Once Capitol Police officer is in critical condition and 15 were hospitalized after up to 60 officers were injured after a violent pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol on Wednesday.

"I'm livid about the whole thing," said Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), who added that several police were hit in the lead with lead pipes.


Seriously, stop hitting people in the lead!

I mean, it's cool and all that they're going to go after the people who stormed the capitol building and the guy who wore his fucking ID badge...toolbox...but you know who really needs to lose their jobs are the capitol police who were taking selfies with these dicks. Let's get those guys out first, it's like having a guard dog that just lead the burglars to the valuables.

I don't know where she got the idea from. She listens to a lot of Republican sorts of speakers.

I love her, of course, and she's a great woman in a lot of ways. But she's not the most politically savvy person in the world.

Also, apparently Dishonored is antifa confirmed?

This is the first I'm hearing about this but now I'm just thinking how awesome if it would be if a bunch of leftists were given the mark of the Outsider and could blink and stop time and summon swarms of killer rats. Imagine the Proud Boys' terror when antifa unleashes killer rats on them.
