After many weeks of contesting the November 3, 2020 Presidential election of Democrat, Joe Biden, Donald Trump held a well publicized and planned gathering of his supporters on January 6, 2021 a block from the U.S. Capital while the final congressional certification of the election was in session. After several inflammatory speeches by Donald Trump, and others including Rudy Giuliani whose speech included the words “trial by combat”, thousands of those present marched down the street and overtook the U. S. Capital. Terrorists invaded the interior looking for the package of unfinished business of the certification of the 2020 election, and seeking revenge and punishment for those not willing to refuse to throw out the fair election of Joe Biden and vote to maintain Donald Trump as President. Those responsible for the resulting five deaths, including one police officer who was beaten to death on the steps of the Capital, multiple injuries, and significant property damage are being identified and arrested.
In addition to legal action against the terrorists, and some law enforcement and military personnel, there are calls to take action against the political allies of what is now considered an attempt to overthrow our democracy. There are calls for the removal of Donald Trump before his term ends on January 20, 2021 when Joe Biden is sworn in as President. There are also calls for action to be taken against the elected U.S. Senators and U.S. House of Representatives (all Republicans) who did vote to object the certification of Joe Biden claiming falsely that the election was fraudulent and that Donald Trump had won.
There were 137 Republican U.S. House of Representatives (7 CA Republicans: Ken Calvert (R-CA)
Darrell Issa (R-CA) Devin Nunes (R-CA) Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) Mike Garcia (R-CA) Jay Obernolte (R-CA)) and 8 Republican U.S. Senators (No Senators from CA) who participated in and re-enforced the conspiracy of false propaganda about election fraud, and who then voted to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s election. Their votes were outnumbered, and would not have changed the outcome, and after the invasion, congress re-convened and continued the certification of Joe Biden as the fairly elected President of the United States.
The Inauguration of Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris will be held at the U.S. Capital on January 20, 2021
