If the American Empire is diminishing as it certainly appears to be, it would certainly make sense that despite a deep recession, pandemic, major political unrest and some eight wars going on simultaneously that the Congress would make it the top priority to impeach someone from an office they no longer hold.
Is this actually important? Well, did Trump attempt a coup de tat on January 6th? Of course he didn't. His presidency and even "stop the steal" thing was mostly just a grift.
Well, did he want some of his supporters to storm the capital? No and there's no evidence he did. Did he rile them up? Yes. Did he "incite" and insurrection with provactive statements. Sure, but what does it mean to "incite?"
No one is ever going to charge a Democratic Senator or Congressmen with "inciting" a BLM or Antifa riot. So this seems like little more than setting a precedent. And with many on the Left and Neocon Right wanting to launch a War on Terror against the American citizenry, this would seem like an absolutely horrendous precedent to set. Give a fiery speech and then one of the people in the audience shoots someone a few days later? Off to jail speaker (if speaker holds the wrong opinions, of course).
Trump's presidency was a clownshow and it's good that it's over. Let's leave it at that and move on to fixing (and also not breaking more) the country.
