House impeaches Trump a second time,
but conviction and removal are unlikely

As a symbolic gesture, what does this symbolize? The absolute contempt that Democrats have for the 74 million Americans who voted for Trump.

Having discovered that, with the help of mail-in vote fraud and Big Tech censorship, they can steal any election anywhere, Democrats have no fear that the “deplorables” could ever regain power. Thus the totalitarian regime, able to cruse its enemies with impunity, simply does not care about the potential of a backlash — dissent is now treason, and resistance is illegal. No matter how “unlikely” Trump could be removed from office between now and next Wednesday (it’s so unlikely as to be almost impossible, but we cannot rule anything out, in this climate of hysteria), this vote with 10 “Republicans” voting yes, is important for its symbolic value. Glenn Reynolds observes: “They were talking about impeaching him before he was even sworn in, which tells you a lot about the seriousness of this stuff.” Democrats never accepted the results of the 2016 election as legitimate, yet anyone who today questions the outcome of the 2020 election is condemned as an Enemy of Democracy.
