Vice President Mike Pence is opposed to a call by Democrats in Congress and some Republicans to invoke the 25th Amendment to strip President Trump of his powers before his term ends, a person close to the vice president said.

It is unclear when Mr. Pence will alert Congress of his position. But the decision by Mr. Pence is said to be supported by several Trump cabinet officials. Those officials, a senior Republican said, viewed the effort as likely to add to the current chaos in Washington rather than deter it.

At a news conference to discuss federal law enforcement’s response to Wednesday’s mayhem, acting D.C. U.S. attorney Michael Sherwin was asked whether President Trump, who had urged the crowd to "fight," would be investigated. The prosecutor responded, “We are looking at all actors here, and all options are on the table. ... Anyone that had a role, if the evidence fits the elements of a crime, they’re going to be charged.”

Ashli Babbit's Death Is On Trump's Head

Her blood is on his hands.

I have no sympathy for her; she should not have been there yesterday. But her death is on Trump and his co-conspirators.

Outrageous

From The Washington Post:

“Protesters were far outnumbered by law enforcement, whom one man on a loudspeaker blamed for starting “the United States civil war.” “This is China,” said one man leaving the grounds, echoing shouts of “Tiananmen Square” that came when police cleared the grounds.”

No,idiots, if it was actually China, you assholes would have been shot, and your families would have gotten the bill for the bullets. Also, they would be in re-education camps by now.
