Bipartisan censure resolution seeks to bar Trump from office

Given the second impeachment trial for Donald Trump is certain to end without a conviction, a bipartisan pair of senators is working on a resolution that aims to censure him. Sens. Tim Kaine and Susan Collins are crafting a resolution to censure Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 riot. The resolution aims to ’include the elements of the 14th Amendment that lead to disqualification from future office.’

This is just getting sad now. There is no other way to define it but sad. President Trump is out of office and only now do they realize how empty their life really is. If they had put just half of this energy into helping him instead of fighting how much more could have been done.

This is called fascism, he obviously did nothing to make people attack the white house, but they are trying to make it look like he did so he does not get in office again.

The Demps are really afraid of Trump. They want to keep power so bad that they ignore the fact that there Democratic run cities are hell holes. That those that voted for demps will always be oppressed and under their rule. They keep saying it was a riot at the Capitol, hardly. So what was all that during the summer and still in Portland, holiday celebrations.

What they’re doing is attempting to pass a bill of attainder. A bill of attainder is where a legislature, as opposed to a court, declares someone guilty of a crime and imposes punishment. It was used often in England before US independence to bar political rivals from office. And abuse of the process back then, precisely as we’re seeing here, is why the wise founders explicitly outlawed it in the constitution. If anyone is undermining the Constitutional system of government it’s the Democrats and the Rinos.

The Supreme Court will vote against any such punishment. You can't restrict a person from voting or running for office through a simple vote. Otherwise, one party could simply vote to disqualify the leader of the opposition party. Trump hasn't been convicted of a crime by a jury in a courtroom.

Not even interested in the will of the people or the letter of the constitution anymore. The establishment cronies are really hating Americans these days. They will grasp at any lie they believe they can manipulate to retain power. Such a disgusting political hit job. Luckily these type of measures are not legal and would never hold up in a court of law.

The Leftists fear Trump, that is why they spend so much time, effort and tax payer money to ensure he never returns. In Washington, no one pays any attention to you unless you are a legitimate threat, which DJT appears to be.

That sounds like an adequate compromise. The main point is that if you don't believe in the democratic process you shouldn't hold office.

Well if they want to keep people misinformed, dumb and obedient then this is a sure fine way to make sure honest people who get elected get censored. The entire swamp is afraid of loosing their positions and money so why not draft up something that gives them leverage.

If Congress think Trump committed a crime, then send the evidence to the DOJ for an investigation and possible criminal charges. That way Trump is cleared of wrong doing, or faces a real punishment. Impeachment or censoring him is a waste of time.

Quite frankly a censure is preferable to impeachment it alows the government to voice its discontent with his behavior in a way that is less weighty than a full impeachment.

Susan Collins... A Republican? But she votes with the Democrats on every critical issue.

This is called fear and insecurity. Almost as good as trying to legislate the country or of poverty.

It is shocking that some people have still not watched Shadowgate documentaries. Whistleblowers know, both sides cannot be trusted.

Oh for Pete's sake just get to work you hacks. Why are you so interested in barring him from office? If you do your damned jobs you wont have to worry about him running again

Seriously, if the man was such a horrible president then wouldn't his reelection be difficult/ impossible. Instead of campaigning on why he shouldn't be elected they try to disqualify him entirely. This all assumes he'd run in 2024 to begin with. The man is old and already well accomplished, more than any of us here.

How can you see the 60 Minutes commercial, and NOT realize it's all propaganda now? In the ad, they're talking about "insurrection" and "terrorist attack on the capital", while they play MUTED video in the background of "Trump supporters" breaking windows. If you see that SAME EXACT VIDEO with audio, you can hear everyone around the window "smasher" yelling to stop him, "THAT'S NOT WHAT WE'RE ABOUT", and "he's not one of us", before other actual supporters/protesters eventually pull the man down and "detain" him. I'm not saying the guy is AntiFa, or that Trump supporters would never get out of line, but in ALMOST every incident where there were people acting up, you can clearly hear people "policing their own", and trying to stop them.

Barring him from office is not a power congress holds outside of the removal from impeachment. If that doesn't happen they cannot bar him under the constitution. They explicitly do not have that power.

Good job I applaud any one who tries to bar a dictator from trying to take over again. Trump was a use.less president he will not be missed. But they need to keep his whole family out of office not just him.
