In the history of the second impeachment, President Trump lacked a comprehensive legal strategy, had nothing on the public agenda, and did not have his preferred way of responding to social media-partly because his son was banned from Twitter. , Stop the effort to establish his presence on the edge platform.
In the most dangerous moment of the president’s presidency, it was almost invisible, which ended in the clamor and fierce rebuke of his party members.
Aides hope Trump will watch shows on TV most of the day. But without Twitter, campaign rallies, and a group of lawyers or Republicans willing to defend his actions, Trump will live through the historic shame in a gentle way.
This is a far cry from when he was first impeached, when aides organized a campaign rally in Battle Creek, Michigan, to coincide with the House vote.
At a rally held at the same time as the members impeached him, his press secretary appeared in the crowd and held up a placard with the total number of votes.
“We let every Republican vote!”
It’s not like that this time. A handful of Republicans are prepared to vote to condemn him, including the Republican Representative Liz Cheney of the Third House of Representatives.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also expressed his belief that impeachment will help drive Trump out of the Republican Party forever. A person familiar with his reaction said Trump was particularly annoyed by Cheney’s announcement on Tuesday night, which said he had betrayed the presidency.
Although other Republicans opposed impeachment because they said it was “divisive,” they did not defend Trump because of the merits of Trump’s impeachment: inciting an uprising.
