President Donald Trump kicked off Monday morning by insisting his spewing daily lies about a “rigged” election and refusing to concede is in service to the voters, not to himself.
Trump lost the election by more than six million votes and 74 Electoral College votes. And he has provided zero evidence of fraud.
“I’m not fighting for me, I’m fighting for the 74,000,000 million [sic] people (not including the many Trump ballots that were “tossed”), a record for a sitting President, who voted for me!”
Trump also managed to write “74 million” wrong.
Currently, President-elect Joe Biden is beating President Trump 80.1 million votes to 73.9 million votes, or 51.1% to 47.1%.
But as elections expert and Democratic attorney Marc Elias writes, Trump has lost 39 out of 40 cases:
Trump/GOP started and ended the day 1-39 in court.🥳

That’s the problem, Don.
You never cared about the 80 million people who voted against you.

No, you are not! You’re attempting to destroy U.S. Democracy!! Your latest plan is for GOP State Legislators to name Trump Electors to throw the election into the U.S. House of Representatives, which is Treasonous & so dangerous to our Republic. RT. #Concede https://t.co/blUkMwXIRi

My timeline is full of super-smart dudes sneering at anyone who said Trump was attempting a coup (however dumbly executed) and yet here he is almost a month after the election. https://t.co/NRxasYn9dW

We are on day 23 of America’s ruling party refusing to acknowledge the legitimacy of the election won by the leader of the opposition.
The GOP is fundamentally opposed to democracy, and it is the only major political party in the world that is. https://t.co/lq59RYOaP8

74,000,000 million people is 74 trillion people.
That is more than 8,000 times the number of people on the planet. https://t.co/BTkuZRACRv

There needs to be an investigation into the 74mil. who allegedly voted for you. It is impossible to imagine that there are that many susceptible, deranged, disbelieving, brainwashed, bigots currently out there. https://t.co/YH9iVbcdEJ

It was rigged. Those votes are lies, fake, a hoax. There’s no way you got that many votes without fraud. https://t.co/hN0lxlYquz

Mark Your Calendar: Schumer Releases Trump Impeachment Schedule
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has just released the schedule for the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump.
The Article of Impeachment will be transmitted by Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday. That week will focus on the administrative elements of the trial.
The following week, starting February 8, the actual impeachment trial will begin.
Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had requested a two-week delay, but Schumer and Pelosi did not grant his wish.
CNN’s Jeremy Herb posted the document:

This is a breaking news and developing story.
‘Seditious Conspiracy’: Ethics Complaint Filed Against Rep. Madison Cawthorn, Other GOPers Over Capitol Coup
An ethics complaint has been filed against three Republican members of Congress over their participation in events that led to the violent and deadly January 6 attempted coup at the U.S. Capitol.
Reps. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, and Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs of Arizona are accused of “a seditious conspiracy to use force to prevent Congress from carrying out its constitutional and statutory duties to count the votes of the Electoral College,” by the Campaign for Accountability, a government ethics watchdog founded by two former members of CREW.
If the House Ethics Office finds any or all of the three Republicans violated federal law, the group is asking for them to be expelled.
Cawthorn spoke at President Trump’s January 6 rally (photo), barely hours before the armed insurrection.
“This crowd has some fight in it,” Cawthorn told Trump’s MAGA supporters. “The Democrats, with all the fraud they have done in this election, the Republicans hiding and not fighting, they are trying to silence your voice. Make no mistake about it, they do not want you to be heard.”
North Carolina’s WLOS reports that “despite his tweets urging ‘millions of patriotic Americans stand for their country,’ Cawthorn said he felt no culpability in what unfolded” the day of the attempted coup.
“I don’t feel I had any responsibility for them attacking the Capitol,” Cawthorn said.
Two days before the domestic terror attack he posted this:
January 6th is fast approaching, the future of this Republic hinges on the actions of a solitary few.
Get ready, the fate of a nation rests on our shoulders, yours and mine. Let’s show Washington that our backbones are made of steel and titanium.
It’s time to fight.
— Madison Cawthorn (@CawthornforNC) January 4, 2021
Gosar and Biggs also bear significant responsibility, according to the lead organizer.
“Far-right activist Ali Alexander, who helped rally Trump’s supporters ahead of Congress’ electoral count, has claimed he planned a rally that preceded the riot with the support of Gosar and Biggs,” The Hill reports, citing an article in The Washington Post.
Pelosi to Transmit Impeachment Article to Senate Monday – Triggering Trial of Trump to Start Next Week
Speaker Nancy Pelosi will transmit the House’s Article of Impeachment against Donald Trump for the incitement of the January 6 insurrection to the Senate on Monday. Once the Senate has received the Article it is constitutionally bound to take it up immediately.
On Thursday Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said his conference would be comfortable with waiting two weeks before beginning the trial of the former president, Donald J. Trump. Speaker Pelosi’s answer to McConnell, in action if not words, was no.
Axios adds that the “Senate is required to begin the impeachment trial at 1 p.m. the day after the article is transmitted.”
Those “ceremonial aspects” of the trial would begin Tuesday, CNN’s Manu Raju reports. “The train is in motion,” he says.
