What some conservatives are saying
Date: January 13, 2021 09:42AM
A friend from the American Enterprise Institute sent me this comment from one of their conservatives:
"The storming of the US Capitol by Trump supporters at his suggestion on January 6 — the day of the Electoral College vote certification in favor of President-elect Biden — will live on in infamy. Many will rightly condemn Trump and the mob and call for action, such as another set of impeachment articles or the invocation of the 25th Amendment."
Even conservative diehards are finally starting to get it. Donald John Trump isn't for America. He isn't for Conservatism. He isn't for the Republican Party. He is for Donald John Trump. You've been worshipping a False God. Now hundreds of your fellow conservative Republicans are facing years in jail for doing what Trump asked.
Donald Trump attempted to get Georgia state officials to throw the election for him, a crime. Donald Trump tried to incite people on January 6 to intimidate members of Congress to reject the electoral votes submitted by state electors, a crime. While his mob was doing his bidding Donald Trump sat in the White House watching it. What Trump did was worse than what Nixon did.
Nobody is asking you to reject America, to reject conservatism or the reject the Republican Party. However the time has come to reject Trump. To demonstrate to him clearly that he cannot use you anymore. Since Trump won't step down or himself invoke the 25th Amendment, since Pence won't invoke the 25th Amendment, the only solution is to impeach him.
