Dems continue 'selling out America' in new impeachment push

Nancy Pelosi (in mask) after Capitol siegeChristian pundits are saying the calls for Donald Trump to be removed from office for "inciting" last week's storming of the U.S. Capitol make no sense. One of them, in fact, blames Democrats for the uprising.

Led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (pictured), Democrats in the U.S. House began filing articles of impeachment today, accusing President Donald Trump of inciting a riot with his rhetoric at last Wednesday's rally in the nation's capital. The president would face a single charge – "incitement of insurrection" – over the riot at the Capitol, according to a draft of the articles obtained by The Associated Press.

Media pundits have been wondering why the news networks haven't been constantly playing the president's alleged "offending call" since he made it – but perhaps it's because they would have to play what he actually said:

Trump (at the rally): "I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard."

Christian radio talk-show host Janet Mefferd says the charge that Trump was trying to incite a riot "is about as believable as the Russian collusion hoax and as the lie of the Ukrainian quid-pro-quo."

It makes no sense, she continues, for the president to call for violence.

"There have been so many Trump rallies over the last several years. I don't think that he had any intention of turning that crowd into a bunch of rioters who would storm the Capitol. Why in the world would he want that to happen?" she asks.

Christian apologist Dr. Alex McFarland, who hosts a daily radio program on American Family Radio, contends millions of Americans are convinced the 2020 presidential election was stolen because they saw it happen with their own eyes.

But McFarland makes it clear he doesn't excuse the actions of that post-rally mob that some Democrats labeled as "domestic terrorism." Still, he says he does understand their anger – and argues that blame shouldn't be aimed at the president.

"The blame for where we are lies at the feet of the liberal Democrats," he tells One News Now, "who for years have built their platform on class envy [and] power at any cost, even if it means selling out America, [ignoring] our moral compass, [and] subverting the Constitution."

Another tactic employed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic leadership involved Vice President Mike Pence invoking constitutional authority to remove President Trump from office. But a House resolution calling on Pence to do that was blocked earlier today by Republicans who pointed out that's not the intention of the 25th Amendment. But according to The Associated Press, a vote on the Pence measure still could occur as early as Tuesday.
