posted by Hannity Staff - 1.13.21

A group of Democrats and some Republicans voted to impeach President Trump a second time Wednesday; making Donald Trump the only person in American history impeached twice during his time in office.

10 Republicans supported the Articles, introduced by more than 200 Democrats following a deadly protest aimed at the United States Congress last Wednesday.

The final tally at 4:35PM is 232 in favor, 197 against, with 5 votes still uncounted.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has signaled there will be no trial in the United States Senate until Joe Biden is sworn into office on January 20th.

AOC: Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley ‘Must Resign’ or Face ‘Expulsion’ After Capitol Riots

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley Thursday; saying the two “must resign” after thousands of protesters stormed the US Capitol during a Joint Session of Congress.

“Sen. Cruz, you must accept responsibility for how your craven, self-serving actions contributed to the deaths of four people yesterday. And how you fundraised off this riot. Both you and Senator Hawley must resign. If you do not, the Senate should move for your expulsion,” posted AOC on Twitter.

 

“The attack at the Capitol was a despicable act of terrorism and a shocking assault on our democratic system. We must come together and put this anger and division behind us. We must, and I am confident we will, have a peaceful and orderly transition of power,” said Cruz earlier in the day.

DE BLASIO STEPS IN: Mayor Says NYC Employees Who Participated in Capitol Riot Will Be Fired

From Fox News:

The New York Police Department is investigating whether at least one of its members was involved in last week’s riot in Washington, D.C., as the Big Apple’s mayor warned Monday that any city employee involved in the attack “will be terminated.” 

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea told Spectrum NY1 that “there is one investigation that is active on one member” in connection with Wednesday’s attack at the U.S. Capitol.

“There is no name yet released because we don’t know if it’s true or not,” Shea said. “But I can tell you that anyone committing crimes certainly would have a very short shelf life with the NYPD.”

Shea, who announced last week he had tested positive for the novel coronavirus, said he had spoken last night with Joseph Resnick, who heads the department’s Internal Affairs Bureau, on the matter.

Speaking about Wednesday’s events on Capitol Hill, Shea said he was “deep in COVID” at the time, but added: “Like everyone else, I was disgusted by what I saw.”

On Saturday, the Fire Department of New York confirmed in a statement to Fox News that the agency “received anonymous allegations that active or retired members were present at the events at the United States Capitol on January 6,” said Frank Dwyer, FDNY’s deputy commissioner of public information and external affairs. The department provided the FBI with the information. 

A source familiar with the matter told Fox News on Monday the FDNY received two tips from two individuals linking them to the Capitol Hill events. The source could not speak to whether they were active duty or retired members, and said the tips “generically stated that they were at the events at the Capitol.”
