While Americans 'Have Been Waiting Two Years For Congress to Do Its Job,' Arrests End Impeach Trump Sit-In Within Two Minutes

Julia Conley, staff writer

At least 20 people were arrested in the rotunda of the Cannon House Office Building on Tuesday as they participated in a sit-in to demand that President Donald Trump be impeached.

Just impeach the asshole NOW. It won’t be a senate conviction even if Trump were to shoot a grandma, a priest, and a puppy on 5th Ave.

The point being to demonstrate his political strength? We are already in the midst of the 2020 national election, and some very important state elections already largely ignored here and elsewhere, we really need the theatrics of a dead end impeachment? The news shows would love it and it would suck the air out of any other political work.

If the impeachment is a dead end because of the senate, why are Dims passing legislation that will die in the senate?

A. The “Dims” have actually passed some legislation the divides Republicans. B. Addressing actual issues is not the same as grand nation freezing theatrics. C. The lack of attention to such issues, even the Green New Deal efforts, is not a justification for alternate politics as entertainment.

Would this same reaction to arrest protestors happen if 20,000 were present to demand the impeachment of this criminal?

We simply must organize better.

Time is running out for Iran as the Death Dealers of the Duopoly are about to commit themselves to begin the slaughter.

Anyone here surprised that no Democrats are crying Bloody Murder while Trump, Bolton, and Pompeo pound their chests?

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Unless I miss my guess, arresting a bunch of people who are “peaceably assembling to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”, is against the highest law in the land. That is a higher law than those against murder, it’s a higher law than all of those against terrorism, its the highest law we have! As far as I am concerned violating this law is an act of willful sedition - it is a direct challenge to the sovereign power of the United States and an attempt to undermine the very foundations of the Republic. It is more harmful than any single act of a foreign power against America in history, including 911, Pearl Harbor, and every recorded act of espionage against us. It is worse because it is more destructive than any of those, than all of them. It is worse because all of these atrocities failed to destroy the very fabric of our national government as this effectively does, and from within too, from the very monsters we have entrusted to protect it. What are we going to do about them violating that law, …go out and get illegally arrested? Perhaps we should ask them to please, if they would be so kind, to curb their lifelong organized crime activities?

Nobody gives it to you, You have to take it!

What is congress supposed to use as a charge without likewise charging 90% of that body with the same war crimes? Those are the crimes that are provable beyond any doubt after all and besides, do people really want Pence to replace Trump who is far, far worse? Just asking.

Bar just put another cherry on top of the hot fudge Sunday. This could be just another item on the list of things that can stall things until after the election. Investigate the investigation? I think I’m gonna puke.

We are in litigation days. Protesters will have to sue, perhaps through the ACLU or some such org.

#16

what about rape, murder and terrorism victims, do they have to sue?

Cops on the wrong side of history as usual.

“Dozens of people arrested”?? This should have been tens of thosands! Where is MoveOn, Womens March and the big national groups when we really need them?

The political climate in this country makes me sick.
I wonder if republicans would be wanting to impeach rump if he got a blow job from an intern. That really seems to bother republicans for some reason. However, having adulterous sex with a porn star doesn’t phase republicans. Can someone please explain this disconnected thinking and morals, and double standards? Why do republicans think that sort of behavior is ok for their own people but not ok for their political adversaries?

PB had it right. Come back with 20,000. If they get arrested come back with 200,000, or 2 million, or until there is enough critical mass to issue ultimatums. Massive civil disobedience is the only path forward.

Nothing delusional here.

Neither is abdicating the responsibility to impeach a criminal pResident.

You don’t get to have it both ways.

My point is that until we can actually put 2 million people in the street nothing will change. Voting for left wing fascists over extreme right wing fascists is only a choice to continue on the path to totalitarianism. We are already so far down that road that soon no one will remember from whence we came.
