The Democrats have introduced a second-time impeachment resolution charging Donald Trump with “incitement of insurrection” relating to the storming of the Capitol on Jan 6, according to a CNN report today.
What the Dems are doing now – i.e. continuing their relentless persecution of the man – will simply give the outgoing president an extended lease on his political life.
Don’t forget that Trump garnered the most election votes ever for a sitting president defending his incumbency.
Trump’s base won’t go away just because Joe Biden is inaugurated.

They’re charging Trump with “insurrection”.
Guess which history-changing individual too had been convicted of the crime of insurrection against the empire?
Answer: Jesus Christ
Historically, it is believed that Jesus “was executed by the Roman authorities on some charge of political insurrection”.
In antiquity, crucifixion was “a Roman form of execution and it was a public execution on a political charge”.
