Schumer, other Democrats want Trump impeachment trial to keep him from running again

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has insisted the former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial will go forward, despite the fact that Trump has already left office.

Schumer has asserted that a conviction to ensure that Trump will be forever barred from running for office — and he isn’t the only Democratic politician who is saying so, as Breitbart reported.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart, California Rep. Maxine Waters (D) warned that Trump would “take over legislatures, little towns, and cities” unless tried and convicted.

“These people have been aligned with him,” she said, according to Breitbart. “One of the things I hope that will be looked at as we take this impeachment to the Senate is the fact that in his campaign for re-election, he was paying the very organizers of the insurrection that took place.”

“Domestic terrorists”

Speaking with MSNBC, Waters pinned the blame on Trump for an attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

“I do believe he sent all of these domestic terrorists to the Capitol to take over the Capitol, and that includes not only the Proud Boys but the Oath Keepers, the QAnon, and white supremacists,” Waters said of Trump, as Breitbart reported.

She went on: “I think it is very clear. We cannot afford to allow this president to leave here without being impeached and, you know, absolutely convicted.”

Waters also asserted that lawmakers “cannot allow [Trump] to leave and have all of the resources of the taxpayers to have not only money to hire staff, but to hire security, and money to organize with, because he will continue.”

The congresswoman predicted that the former president would attempt “to take over legislatures, little towns, and cities and he doesn’t give a darn about the Constitution and so our democracy is at stake.”

Waters’ rhetoric

Of course, Waters’ grave concerns over potential insurrection are somewhat curious given her own history of publicly calling for mob activity.

In 2018, she told a crowd of supporters that if they “see anybody from [Trump’s] Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome,” as TIME magazine reported.

Such rhetoric isn’t a new development for Waters, as she also described the violent riots that struck Los Angeles in 1992, in which 63 people died, as merely “an uprising.” It seems she’s since changed her tune.

    1. Start by removing Schumer and Pelosi. The constitution is for a removal of a president, not torture or follow him, when he retires and make new ways to punish him more. Idiots.

      1. Hasn’t anyone figured out that the reason the dems, in particular Pelosi, have been trying to get rid of Trump from the very beginning is that HE THREATENS THEIR POWER! They cannot control him and they are deathly afraid he’ll run again and they will lose control.

      2. it is ashamed that some elected officials have conducted themselves like organized crime figures. , working against the American people, & agsint the USA, Free & fair election need to take place & the 2020 election has not been free, or fair , attacking a President for 4 years because some who has been in politics for decades did not win an election is unconstitutional , & people who conduct themselves like organized crime figures in City & State government , formulating gangs is not acceptable past, present or future.

        1. this seems like al Gore and Bush a;ll over again and al was ahead and then chads started being hanging chads and ballots missing, such a mess.

      3. how come no-one impeached waters or pelosi for saying while trump was in office they would pay anyone 2,000.00 to kill trump he was president.but they have the nerve to blame him for this insurrection, when they nknow their buddys from antifa resurrected this.
        BULL>

  1. Waters,

    You are DELUSIONAL! And as USUAL, you make accusations against people that reflect the very things the people in YOUR party are doing!

    1. You are the trouble starter fo the Good Blacks to be hated by the whites, you are so prejudice that your ugliness is shown better, you are a POS in capital letters, you are a demented B_tch, I hope your family does not suffer for your being such a bad mental problem.

    Their current VP is not a Natural Born Citizen.
    If Trump wants to run again, he will Damn Well Run Again!
    What do they plan to do? Surround us with American Troops?
    Cut the Crap!

    1. Absolutely agree. They seem to forget that there are nearly 80 million people who support the policies of President Trump. Unless they are planning firing squads, I think they had better tone down the rhetoric!

      1. Oh I agree. Who the hell is Schumer an McConnell anyway. So sick of all these idiots that we have running our lives. Last I knew this is still America. Supposedly. The land of the Free an home of our brave

        1. Also each and every person of prior military better remember the oath they took to defend this country against ALL ENEMIES, both foreign and domestic. Right now we have a Major Domestic Enemy Right here destroy our FREEDOMS.

      2. If they get their way they will. Nancy tried to get the Marines and also wanted them to carry “Machine Guns” to be used on civilians. The only thing that prevented this was Trump still being President and being the only one the Military takes orders from. They are going to make Tiananmen Square, Ruby Ridge & WACO look like child’s play.

  4. MAXINE WATERS IS THE BIGGEST LIAR AND THE MOST MORBID SOUL I HAVE EVER HEARD OF AND CHUCK SCHUMER ALSO. THEY BOTH HATE TRUMP BECAUSE THEY ARE INSANELY JEALOUS OF HIM AND WHAT HE’S ACCOMPLISHED. THAT GOES FOR PELOSI ALSO! THEY ALL KNOW THEY HAVE HELL FOR ETERNITY, SO THEY WANT TO GET THEIR REVENGE IN THIS LIFE!

    1. I totally agree with you! Democrats can’t win an election on merit & integrity so they bring in a known fraudulent election system called dominion & then insult We The People with hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots! That’s treasonous actions for everyone involved! I hope this comes out in the near future especially before Trump is back in the presidency this year!

    2. They should read “23 Minutes in Hell”, and see their future as they stand before God with their destruction of His people and His country. They are so afraid Trump will run again and win by a landslide like he did in November, that they will do anything to stop that. The problem in the November election is they were not prepared for the landslides, so had to shut down counting at 10:30 with Trump way ahead, and reopen in the morning with Biden ahead. Is that why they call him “magic Joe”?? Then what happens with Dominion suing Sydney Powell and Guiliane — what evidence will Powerll and Guiliani bring out to defend themselves?

    3. Maxine Waters Blames alot of White People for Americas troubles… She should look in the Mirror (not thru it) as She has been a Big Part of BLM & Antifa & Dirty mouthed politics for too long…She Made (with us White Peoples’ help) blacks, EQUAL. I’m FINE with That. Now She wants “EQUITY” for Blacks “..She’s a Vampire, cause She wants Blood.

  5. Americans WANT President Trump and demoRATS can’t stand it!!!!!! Impeach all the filthy stealing demorats. We want Trump!!!!

  6. Who are the demonrats that THEY alone can determine whom can run for any office? They have NO right to make that determination! We the people have the right to vote for a candidate of OUR choosing, the right to run for public office etc.! If they think they can take away our rights, perhaps WE should stop THEM from bieng able to run for office by using the same tactics! They should NOT be permitted to get away with this! We must fight back, if we expect to remain a free country! And—- any Republican who voted to impeach should be kicked out of our party! We do not need traitors among us!

    1. vote out the vile democrats / remove the dead wood like nancy and cry baby chuckie and their crime family

  7. amendment 25 : Pelosi, Schumer, Sadler, schiff, Waters, and there are a few others I can’t think of right now. Cheney is one of them. Her state is going to vote her out anyway. But those first few people are sending us down the tubes with Biden leading the way. We need to remove the garbage and get America back on track to being a great nation again.

  8. It wasn’t 76 million it was 96 million that voted for Trump tha algarythum was set 1.24 votes for Biden and .76 for Trump they caught it in a county in Michigan and fixed it but none of the other county’s did so it stood then when they tried to bring it up to Judges non of them would even look at the evidence they had and more than 2000 people came forward signed affidavits to voter fraud no way they are trying To make mail in voting permanent

  9. USING THE ” CINSTITUTION ” TO KEEP SOME ONE FROM RUNNING FROM OFFICE AGAIN ESPECIALLY NOW THAT TRUMP IS A CITIZEN IS TOTAL ILLEGAL! PIGLOSI AND SCHUMER NEED TO BE IMPEACHED FOR USING THE IMPEACHMENT ACT FOR THEI PERSONAL USE AGAINST THEIR OATH OF OFFICE IN CHASING TRUMP ALL OVER THE LANDSCAPE! THEY ARE THE CROOKS NOT TRUMP!

  10. Wonder what the Constitution says regarding a president who is not in office being impeached while a private citizen, convicted and not being allowed to run again? Says who? Now we only follow the parts of the Constitution that we like? And how come all of this didn’t apply when the Democrats were playing games? They can “incite the mob”, e,g, Maxine Waters but Republicans can’t. Not that I think this is right on either side.

  11. Biden is removing all of Trumps accomplishments out of revenge with no plan otherwise. All the stupid people that voted for Biden will see how bad he is and will want Trump back. Check back after Biden’s 100 days. He has no idea what he is doing and where he is at!!! The reason the troups are still guarding congress is because the Democrats are afraid of Trump and will do any thing they can to impeach him but it is unconstitutional and they cannot impeach a president who is no longer in office.
    Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Biden all need to be impeached.

    1. Leah have no eyes to see or ears to hear look at the actual videos of the speaker and compare to nancy and chuckies lies

    2. They are not afraid as much as they hate him. I would describe Pelosie BIBLICALLY. She is nashing her teeth. And Shift looks like bugeye when ever he speaks of Trump!
      Nancy really exposed herself and her use of tempertantrums when she, ” ripped up a wonderful talk, honoring Americans. Is that not a crime?

    3. Biden is Destined, as a Catholic Abortion pro, to burn in Hell. He might even be Excommunicated from the Catholic Faith in his lifetime..Ask any True God Loving Catholic Priest about Abortion/Joe—His time in Heaven Can NEVER BE………

  12. None of us should say they can’t impeach President Trump a second time because look what they did the first time with a fake Dossier! These B–ta-ds are evil, corrupt and will do whatever the hell they want without consequence. With the help of Rino Republicans! DemonRats would rather have a Pedophile with dementia who is selling us to China run our country than to loose their power. Biden doesn’t give a rats behind about our country. He is to intent on erasing Trump’s success! God help us because we havent seen the worst yet. If that cackling Vice President takes over we can kiss our country goodbye!

  13. Schumer & Other Democrats: What can we do to you to KEEP YOU FROM RUNNING AGAIN??? Drain the swamp!! BRING ON TRUMPISM!!! MAGA!!!
    74,000,000 people WANT YOU GONE.

  14. We know and they know the election was fraudulently and illegally usurped by the now corrupt democrats. The left wing dung has stooped to all corrupt measures to skew the votes.
