The House voted to impeach President Donald Trump on the charge of "incitement of insurrection," 232-197 after a mob of his supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol where Congress was working to certify the Electoral College victory of President-elect Joe Biden on January 6. Ten Republicans voted to impeach. (Tribune News Service).

Calls for unity by Republicans in Congress would ring less hollow had 147 of them not voted to disallow results from swing states after deliberations had resumed after the attack (”Trump’s Senate impeachment trial could begin on day of Joe Biden’s inauguration,” Jan. 14).

The big lie told by President Donald Trump and parroted by his sycophants began what has resulted in the storming of the U.S. Capitol, the death of five people and the second impeachment of this president.
