Former Republicans call for Trump’s impeachment, banishment from political life

As Democrats move ahead with impeaching President Donald Trump for “insurrection,” an effort to block him from seeking public office ever again is gaining support from Republicans.

Amidst speculation that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wants to banish Trump from political life, nearly two dozen former Republican lawmakers joined House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in vowing to take that step, the Washington Examiner reported.

Former Republicans: Banish Trump

Democrats are calling for Trump’s impeachment for his supposed “incitement of insurrection” after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol last week.

While many Republicans have blamed Trump for the chaos, the party is ambivalent on whether to impeach, with some fearing that it would divide an already deeply polarized country and anger Trump’s loyal Republican base.

Watching from the sidelines, a group of former Republican lawmakers implored Congress to “fulfill your constitutional duty,” even if there is no time to impeach Trump before he leaves office on Jan. 20. (McConnell has no plans to bring the Senate back sooner than Jan. 19, The Hill reported.)

Impeaching Trump “could help pave the way to prevent him from serving in any other federal elective or appointive office,” they said.

The former lawmakers continued, “As members of the branch that was under attack — not just politically but physically — you must remove the president from office. Congress must send a strong and clear message not just to this president but future presidents that this type of behavior will not be tolerated or accepted.”

Republicans divided

Heading into impeachment Wednesday, Democrats were expected to find some allies in Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WI) and a handful of others.

The impeachment is driving a wedge in the GOP between pro-Trump and anti-Trump partisans, with Trump loyalists such as Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) calling on Cheney to resign from her position as the GOP’s conference chair.

McConnell is said to privately favor purging the party of Trump, who he blames for the party’s loss of the Senate in last week’s Georgia runoffs. If the Senate votes to convict Trump, they could then vote in a simple majority to bar him from federal office.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appealed to the necessity of keeping America “safe from this man” indefinitely.

“He must go. He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love,” she said.

  1. O my God! I don’t know this country anymore. So many evil and traitorous people in dem party and now some in repub. Light is shining on these treacherous people God, esp NP. She’s so evil and full of hatred. God please intercede and bring forth your light and power.

    1. Well Sheila, We are now seeing what I’ve been saying for years. There is not really two cents worth of difference between a Republican and a Demo-rat. They all start out thinking they can save the World, or something like that. Once they’ve been office for a while, they fall victim to what I call “Swamp Fever”. When that happens it seems like they say the heck with it, I might as well go along and get rich off the Tax Payers “Dime” too. The ones with integrity walk away, but the crooks, and the power mad stay and sooner rather than later we end up with the type of people you see in office now. And anyone foolish enough to try and interfere with the gravy train (Trump in this case.) gets “tared and feathered” and rode out of town on a rail!

      1. You are exactly right thank you for expressing your thoughts. People need to open their eyes and minds a lot more to the rattlesnakes that are striking. GOD BLESS THE TRUE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND REMOVE THE VENOM FROM THE RAT SNAKES✅

    2. If this Country think baring Trump for office
      Forever is the right thing to do. You will forever create a division in this country like you have never seen. You have impeached him with no evidence. You did nothing to help the American people and uniting this Country is just another one of Congress lies.
      2. No MORE RHINOS

      1. Lin that is a true statement rinos and democrats are in for the money not the people we need term limits on these swine anyone right more then 6 years should be automatically be removed at next election

  2. Pelosi is an extremely larger danger to the freedoms of the USA than Donald
    Trump ever was or could be. She is a conniving, lying hypocrite of the
    first order and I would not trust her for ANYTHING in this life.

    1. Pelosi started this with the mail in ballots without proof of who is dending–no photo id or regulations to avoid fraud–investigations should have serch her offices for fake ballots to 50 states??

      1. I still have my Voter ID card from years ago and a photo…I would think that would be the way to go…it was then! Or do some people have something to hide?????

  3. I hope those RINOS siding with the dimwits enjoy their 2 years in the house because that’s all they’re gonna get.

  4. Keep pushing, every day more and more outrages. Yesterday a Kangaroo Court in 7 hours with no input whatsoever from President Trumps Legal Team, The Democrat House convicted the President of a supposed crime they themselves planned and committed. We know damn well the Antifa were invited in the day before the riot and given a tour of the building so they would know where to go to cause the most damage. Then after President Trump asked the crowd to peacefully go home, the two bus loads, approximately 200 terrorists, were escorted into the demonstration area by Police. The Antifa Terrorists then filtered through the crowd and were recognized by Capital Police and allowed into the building to stage a riot. Some Trump supporters were told that the President had authorized this so they joined the Antifa mob. The selfies taken by Antifa Terrorists and Capital Police tell a tale. I kept 12,000 people aware of the truth on Parler, now even that outlet is shut down by the swamp. Keep pushing us but be aware, we are running out of options. Biden will never be a legal President unless you are so stupid as to believe the person that was unknown during the election process and hiding in a cellar got 80 million votes exceeding the numbers for President Obama. Signed, The American People.

    1. the democrat party should be placed under a military watch they have become a danger to the American people

  5. McConnell is the person who lost the Senate by being unwilling to work with Trump on get people elected. I don’t mind says that I belong to the MAGA party not the republican’s party any more. I will follow the lead of my President Trump in whoever he wants to run for office from dog catcher to the next president if he can not run again. One of the 75 million Trump supporters.

    1. I agree. McConnell is very misguided in his opinion. Funny how these idiots think Trump lost it!?!! He is the only reason reps made gains in house and reason senate did not fall miserably into Dems hands.
      They continue to push and they will find out thst trump is greater than the reps same ole same ole !!!
      Mitch is a swamp creature and upset he had been outed w his China wife and business beholden to the Chinese Communist party !!!!

      1. If this Country think baring Trump for office
        Forever is the right thing to do. You will forever create a division in this country like you have never seen. You have impeached him with no evidence. You did nothing to help the American people and uniting this Country is just another one of Congress lies.
        2. No MORE RHINOS

  6. PELOSI MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES BEFORE SHEW TOTALLY DESTROYS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. SHE IS A WALKING DISASTER FOR OUR GOVERNMENT. IF IT DOESN’T GO HER WAY IT IS WRONG IS HER BELIEF. SHE THINKS THAT EVERYONE SHOULD FOLLOW WAY OF THINKING REGARDLESS OF THE OUTCOME. SHE AND SCHUMER ARE BOTH WAYOUT OF LINE. BOTH ARE ACTING WORSE THAT ADAM SHIFF!

  7. term limits is the answer –we just need to get the item rolling and must make sure that if they have served more than 12 years they can’t run — that will rid most the know-it-alls out —

      1. Dorchchek the people are the authority not nancy / lets set up a vote with the people on term limits who cares what the freeloaders want

  8. tHE ONES THAT SHOULD BE IMPEACHED AND CHARGED WITH TREASON ARE ALL THIS BACKSTABBING TRAITORS TO OUR COUNTRY, CONSTITUTION AND WE THE PEOPLE. THE FBI KNEW THAT ANTIFA AND BLM WERE GOING TO CAUSE TROUBLE IN DC AND DID NOTHING BECAUSE THEY WANTED IT TO HAPPEN SO THEY COULD BLAME TRUMP. NOW THEY HAVE RECANTED THEIR CLAIM THAT TRUMP HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT, BUT THE DAMAGE THEY WANTED TO HAPPEN WAS DONE. DC, THE FBI, DOJ, HOUSE AND SENATE, DEEP STATE, OUR SUPREME COURT ARE ALL DIRTY AND CORRUPT. AND JO AND HO OH GOD PROBABLY THE WORST THINGS EVER THERE IS NO WAY TO RESPECT THEM – THEY ARE TRAILER TRASH PLUS. THE TRAITORS AND TREASONIST COULDNT RUN FAST ENOUGH TO THROW STONES AT PRESIDENT TRUMP – THEY ARE ANGRIER THAT LUNTZ POLL SAID 91 PERCENT OF TRUMP VOTERS STILL SUPPORT HIM – THEIR LIES AND FRAUD AGAINST AMERICA HAVE ONLY SHOWS US THAT OUR POLITICIANS ARE VILE EVIL DISGUSTING SCUM BAGS AND THEY WORK HARD TO EARN THAT TITLE. WE NEED A NEW PARTY THE COMMIES AND REPUBS ARE COOKED I WON’T SUPPORT REPUBLICANS GOP ANY LONGER

  9. We don’t need the President to run again, we need him to head up a new party to take down the Republicans. We need to get National populists conservatives in office to help undo the damage the Uniparty does.

  10. u are going to meet God one of these day. President Trump has done more for this country even when u went against him than any other. He did everything he said he would do. You are a mean , hateful, spiteful woman, u support murdering babies, why didn’t u abort yours? these precious baby don’t have a say. If ur lips are moving u are lying. I pity u. U must be a miserable woman. U are such a good Catholic how can u support murdering babies. U will meet God what kind of answer are u giving

    1. Unfortunately this election has proven that we can no longer trust the voting system, because it’s rigged so there is probably no point in voting until they straighten that out if ever

  11. We need to get it so that they cannot serve in Congress for more than 10 years because they get to where they think they are better than us and they want to treat us and the President like we are lower than them and they can do whatever they want to us. If we get a good President who does what he says he is going to, like President Trump, then they get afraid and want to get rid of him so that he cannot run a second term. I say get rid of them so that they cannot run again.

  12. PRES.elect, Nancy Peliso and the insane democrats are doing to the wonderful United States of America ??????????????????
    Please start acting like loving and peaceful and caring Americans …
    Before it is too late ……………. you can do it,,, thankks

  13. the only thing pelosi loves is power and money. she could care less about america and the people. she has already proven that

  14. I will work to see them voted out if they run again. They need to drown in the muck of the swamp they swim in.

  15. WHY wasn’t the behavior by ANTIFA and BLM’s in the summer of love not arrested in the summer and charged? They took over a police station, burned down cities, raped, killed and attacked people. Looted stores and took down statues. That’s seems to be o.k. with the dems.

  16. These stupid Rinos truly think rank and file Republicans will just abandon Trump are delusional. McConnell the minority leader until he is primaries out of office. I guess he thinks we will just forgive and forget his treacherous back stabbing; he and the Rino Republican have just destroyed the party. McConnell should be in jail along with Biden for selling out our country to China. They make me sick.

  17. Every turncoat Republican and demonrat who stole the 2020 election are going to soon be in hell where they belong. Antifa was driven into the peaceful march, told to dress like Republicans and no doubt told to kill several innocent people. Pisslosi, Scummer or Schitt.

  18. The entire capitol fiasco was a false flag event, paid for by the demonrats to get President Trump impeached! They are so afraid of him, they would rather burn our country down than see him elected again! Piglosi has a lot of explaining to do about HER anti American behaviour! SHE is the danger to our national security and our country! She must be removed from congress and barred from holding any office in our government!

  19. Sad to see our government officials both Satan worshipping Democrats and rogue Republicans have already made the turn to lead in communism.

  20. Why do the dumbocrats want Pres Trump prevented from holding office again, because they are scared that he would win in such a big way that all of their tricks would keep him from being President again. That is what scares them the most!

  21. You Republicans who are in favor of banishing Trump from politics had better
    take heed. There are upwards of 75,000,000 people who voted for him and
    they will for damn sure remember you when you come up election or
    re-election. Not only will they not vote for you, but will openly campaign
    against you. also you are as crooked as the democrats, nobody spends untold
    millions of dollars for a job that pays only a few hundred thousand a year. The
    only reason you do is so you be in on the take also. It’s my sincere belief that
    Lobbyist are the lowest form of life in Washington. Paying out billions of dollars for special favors and treatment for their employers.
