Instigating a riot is exhorting people to pillage, Steal, loot, burn, assault.

Telling people to go down to Capitol and cheer some but not some others and fight for you rights is Not incendiary language but rather media fodder for pearl clutching speech restriction.

It doesn't have to be a crime under criminal code, it just has to be a major abuse of power, or a major incident that brings distrust in our public office holder, or that they failed to abide by their oath of office, or ignored the constitution.

Jan 6ths planned revolt and insurrection and his handling, meets those requirements imo....
Really? I can check my Constitution but I don't recall it saying about distrust in public office or abuse of power. It says bribery, high crimes, or misdemeanors.

How is a planned insurrection Trump's fault?
Trump seeded and fueled it, weeks and months before Jan 6th.... at his rallies, through his friends and family, in his tweets....

How would the seditionists even know to go after Mike Pence if Trump had not told them the Big Lie that Pence could 'do the right and constitutional thing' on the 6th and deny Biden the electoral votes? Which was just flat out unconstitutional....a lie by Trump.

As far as high crimes and misdemeanors meaning, read the federalist papers on it, where our founders discussed it.... and read what the meaning was at the time of our founders....

it meant an abuse of power by an official in a HIGH position, that caused the distrust of the public, in him.... breaking an oath of office, which may not be a crime... showing up drunk every day.... may not be a crime.... but a loss of trust occurred due to it.

Dershowitz failed to cite the Supreme Court ruling which held that the House’s actions were ‘un-Constitutional.’

Acts of government are presumed to be Constitutional until the Supreme Court rules otherwise (see, US. v. Morrison (2000)).

Absent such a ruling, this is nothing but subjective opinion and speculation, completely devoid of merit or authority.
When did the Supreme Court rule that Donald J. Trump incensed a mob and commanded them to
illegally enter the Capitol building?

Get bent, loser!

If "loss of trust" were grounds for impeachment every president who ever served in office could be
a target for removal. You people are just absurd.

A crime is a crime. Crime means to break our laws. If there is no law against something, then there is no crime committed.

Did the Democrats stoke the fire just before the baseball field shooting? Did the Democrats do the same just before the Supreme Court riot? Did Kammie Whorris contribute to the riots when she promoted a go-fund-me account to bailout criminals that were arrested in those riots? Not only was she never punished politically, she was allowed to run for VP! If Trump said anything to inspire this insurrection or to commit crimes, why are the Democrats never held responsible and Republicans are?

I know how much the left hates our Constitution, but if you hate the provisions and restrictions in it, then do things the right way. Pass an amendment and get rid of freedom of speech, not impeach a President.

It's my hope the GOP took note on what we wanted when we elected Donald Trump. We love a fighter. We love a leader that will call out the enemy. So when we takeover the House in 2022, they had better do the same things to Biden that they did to Trump.

Do Democrats serve all? They don't even pretend to.
