Trump was impeached on Wednesday. During the debate, two Republicans compared impeachment to the crucifixion of Jesus, one Republican compared it to Pearl Harbor, and several compared it to the Salem Witch Trials. Louie Gohmert parroted a Russian conspiracy theory about Ukraine and lied about Ukraine invading Georgia. (Russia invaded Georgia.)
White House officials have told the media that Trump got his idea of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election directly from Vladimir Putin. This is not the first time the president has deferred to Putin, repeating what the Russian president has told him as fact.
The Epoch Times was caught by Facebook creating a large number of fake accounts to push pro-Trump and pro-Russia conspiracy theories. The accounts were AI generated but being operated out of Vietnam. Russia is likely involved. Their intelligence agencies are currently operating the same sort of social media infiltration as in 2016 and the US government has not made stopping it a priority… for some reason.
On the night of his impeachment Trump remarked that John Dingell might be in hell. Dingell served in the military during World War 2 and was the longest serving congressman in history, serving almost sixty years. His widow, Debbie Dingell, holds his seat in the House of Representatives. Trump didn’t think she was sufficiently grateful when he gave Dingell states’ honors – which he never did in the first place.
