Trump does need a trial for sedition, but it should be a criminal trial, not an impeachment. I'm not a lawyer. If both are needed, both are needed, but the criminal trial is the important one.

l watched PBS Frontline last night, entitled "Trump's American Carnage." lt started out okay, but then slowly morphed into an anti-Trump polemic. Some of the commentators were good. The late John McPain was portrayed correctly lMH0.

Yep, wear a uniform, shoot a woman veteran in the neck and don't worry about it:

l heard on the radio, "of the 220 arrested, only 8 were on Parler". l tried looking this up and found no confirmation. But l did find this: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-55987603  of the 221 arrested:

-- 2 current members of the military and 20 veterans have been charged

-- Some of those arrest have said "they were at least partially motivated by Donald Trump."

-- 4/5ths were employed and include business owners, professionals, CEOs, state law makers and an Olympian gold medalist.

-- median age is 40 and 2/3rds are over 35

-- only 10 have ties to the "alt-right"

Only if she's committing treason at the time.

"Alt-right" is like AntiFa, in that there is no central structure. It isn't an organization, it is an ideology.

Trump Acquitted  57-43 

Seven Republicans voted to convict on a charge of insurrection, and all Democrats.

The Deficient Seven are:

Richard Burr -NC

Bill Cassidy -LA

Susan Collins -MA

Mitt Romney -UT

Lisa Murkowski -AL

Pat Toomey -Penn

Ben Sasse -NE

Burr is not running for re-election.  OPINE: The others will likely face a few unforgiving voters.
