Dem Congressman Sues Trump, Giuliani Over Capitol Riot

US lawmakers will form 9/11-style panel to probe Capitol violence, says Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Even some Republicans who voted to acquit Trump on Saturday acknowledged that the more proper venue to deal with Trump was in the courts, especially now that he has left the White House and lost certain legal protections that shielded him as president.

But when Aronberg appeared on "Morning Joe" on February 12, he told Scarborough and Brzezinski that if the Fulton County DA's office decides to prosecute Trump, it might have a strong case.

Moreover, Aronberg said, "There isn't a recording" of Graham's conversation with Raffensperger - whereas there is a recording of Trump's conversation with the Georgia secretary of state.

Biden has mostly stayed close to the White House since taking office almost a month ago, leaving the D.C. area only for weekend trips to his DE home and the Camp David presidential retreat in the Catoctin Mountains in Maryland. That acquittal is likely to open the door to fresh legal scrutiny over Trump's actions before and during the siege. Graham said he looked forward to campaigning with Trump in the 2022 election, when Republicans hope to regain the congressional majority. Willis, entered the national spotlight Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2021, when letters to top state officials revealed her office is investigating whether illegal attempts were made to influence the state's 2020 elections. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC told Fox News Sunday that "we need a 9/11 commission to find out what happened and make sure it never happens again". A phone call between Mr Trump and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy emerged during the impeachment trial in which Mr McCarthy, as rioters stormed the Capitol, begged Mr Trump to call off the mob.

Prominent Republican senators, most of whom have loyally backed Trump, trailed far behind him in the poll.

The Republicans who joined Cassidy in voting to convict were Sens.

"Now that the Senate has voted to acquit President Trump, we hope that Democrats will set aside their divisive partisan agenda and focus on the American priorities of tackling the COVID-19 pandemic, safely reopening schools and restarting the economy", the statement concludes. Tom Cotton (1 per cent) and South Carolina Sen. Stacey Plaskett, a House prosecutor who represents the Virgin Islands, said of the verdict, describing it as "heartbreaking".

The Democratic prosecution in the impeachment proceedings also doctored a tweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence, adding a verified blue checkmark that Lynn does not have on her account. "We needed more senators with spines".

After the vote he was quoted by Fandos as saying there was "no question - none - that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day".

The Maine Republican Party, too, is weighing whether to condemn Senator Susan Collins for her vote to convict Mr. Trump, according to the Bangor Daily News. The Senate, in an earlier vote, had deemed the trial constitutional.

"He didn't get away with anything yet", McConnell said.

Dean also backed the idea of an impartial investigative commission "not guided by politics but filled with people who would stand up to the courage of their conviction".
