House Democrats introduce impeachment resolution, charging Trump with 'incitement of insurrection'

 House Democrats formally introduced their resolution to impeach President Donald Trump on Monday, charging him with "incitement of insurrection" for his role in last week's riots at the US Capitol.

The impeachment resolution that the House is poised to vote on later this week is the Democrats' first step toward making Trump the first president in history to be impeached twice.


  1. He has 9 days left in office.
    He can pardon himself
    Impeachment doesn't add up to a can of peaches.

  2. no he can't.
    impeachment is the only tool available to hold him accountable

  3. “Daas Torah “no he can't. impeachment is the only tool available to hold him accountable” No. see
    Dr. Gerstenfeld details a tool used in Germany to hold accountable BDS academics. Hold accountable = Accountability means being answerable for your actions and decisions. If you were made responsible for something or you yourself promised to achieve certain outcomes, you can be held accountable for them.

    The tool is to use students to go through the academic research of the BDS supporters to look for systematic and intentional plagiarisms and distorted quotations. BDS supporters often see a free lunch in the sense they see a gain to show anti-Trump and anti-Netanyahu credentials without any risk. There is a risk when BDS supporters use systematic and intentional plagiarisms and distorted quotations. This is an effective way to hold academic BDS supporters accountable.

    Impeachment is a red herring. I apply today’s Psalm of the day to the Trump impeachment:
    “A Psalm of Asaph. God stands in the congregation of God בעדת אל; He judges among the judges בקרב אלהים ישפט. How long will You judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wickedופני רשעים תשאו Selah. Judge the needy and the orphan שפטו דל ויתם; vindicate the poor and the impoverished עני ורש הצדיקו. Rescue the needy and the destitute פלטו דל ואביון ; from the hand of the wicked deliver them מיד רשעים הצילו. They do not know, nor will do they understand; they walk in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken ימוטו כל מוסדי ארץ. I said, You are angelic; sons of the most High are you all אלהים אתם ובני עליון כלכם. Nevertheless אכן, you shall die like men, and fall like any prince. Arise, O God, judge the earth; for You allot the heritage among all nations כי אתה תנחל בכל הגוים.” (Psalms 82).
    תהלים פרק פב פסוק ב
    עַד מָתַי תִּשְׁפְּטוּ עָוֶל וּפְנֵי רְשָׁעִים תִּשְׂאוּ סֶלָה:
    מלבי"ם תהלים פרק פב פסוק ב
    עד מתי תשפטו עול, יצייר שה' צועק זאת בין עדות הבעל דין שמזהיר עמהם את השופטים, וגם ידבר כן בקרב השופטים (והמליצה שנפשם המוסריית תעיד להם בלבבם בשם ה' כי לא טוב עושים) והנה נטיית המשפט יהיה בשני פנים, א] במשפט של שני בעלי דינים שבאים למשפט מלוה ולוה, קונה ומוכר, וכדומה על זה אמר עד מתי תשפטו עול, ב] בהעלם עין מעשות משפט בעושקים וחומסים ובעלי זרוע, ועל זה אמר עד מתי פני רשעים תשאו, סלה סיום הענין:
    The Malbim says that litigants come to a court, buyer and seller, creditor and debtor and similar. With unseen acts, meaning without bringing evidence and proof, wicked do their oppressing and robbing using their might. When will the face of the wicked bear their wickedness, meaning be punished?

  4. wow?
    you want to cancel trump's doctorate?!
    Since he doesnt have one how does that provide any consequences for his disastrous incitement which is the discussion topic ?

  5. “Daas Torah wow? you want to cancel trump's doctorate?! Since he doesn’t have one how does that provide any consequences for his disastrous incitement which is the discussion topic ” No.
    Dr. Gerstenfeld: “Probably most of those who have signed on to the anti-Israel BDS declaration are not hard-core leftists. They are more likely to be in a category, which is best described as 'free-lunchers.' Due to the weakness of the Israeli anti-propaganda activity, they know that they do not risk anything by supporting BDS. Doing so may even improve their standing among some of their colleagues. Once there is a potential price to be paid, it is likely that mainly extreme anti-Israelis will remain as public supporters of BDS at universities and the not so hard-core will be less inclined to take the risk. Signing a pro-BDS of Israel declaration without being involved in any other similar declarations against other countries is an antisemitic act according to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism. There is another important aspect of the approach above described: it is low cost. This enables the investigators to simultaneously target teachers at a number of universities. Most academics are cowards, like the majority of those in many other professions. Why would they sign on to anti-Israel BDS declarations if the free lunch is no longer assured, but instead brings risks with it?”
    My theory. Did Pharaoh’s advisors get a free lunch, meaning career advancement, showing cruety/hatred to Jews and beating them. Dothan and Avirom got a free lunch, meaning position and wealth by attacking Moses before Pharaoh.
    Did Biden/Harris get a free lunch, meaning win the election, by attacking Trump and Netanyahu? The discussion topic is the 2020 election and not Trump’s speech that Wednesday. I heard the whole speech. I liked it. Incitement = the action of provoking unlawful behavior or urging someone to behave unlawfully. this amounted to an incitement to commit murder.

  6. it is tough but nobody accepts your defense of Trump.
    BTW Trump lost the election because he is incompetent it wasn't stolen from him

  7. Trump trump trump trump trump trump trump trump. not even a token Torah article today
