I was at first not going to write anything about the events leading up to and the conclusion of Mr Donald Trump’s impeachment, mostly because I was so dumbfounded by it all I was almost lost for words, however I feel it was such a bizarre situation that one must comment.
Where to start, Lord knows; Mr Trump looses the election by some 8 million votes but will not accept that he has lost even though no court in the land has found evidence of any wrong doing to back up his claim that the election was stolen.
It really isn’t worth my while spending too long on this as it’s such a farcical situation but briefly, after he looses the election he is seen on television inciting a riot with a view to stop the official declaration of the win for Joe Biden which ended with the storming of the Capitol Building in Washington resulting in the deaths of five people.
Whilst still President he is Impeached but due to the Republicans delaying when he comes to trial he is no longer President which gives them the excuse to find him not guilty, which leaves me wondering had he actually taken a gun and killed five people himself while being President, would they still have found him not guilty.
It seems there was evidence that Mr Trump knew of the events going on at the Capitol Building after his speech which incited the riot and in fact was contacted by many Congressmen asking him to stop the riot but he chose not to act, leaving all those in the building open to the possibility that they too may have joined the list of those killed on the day.
To sum up, Mr Trump incites a riot with the purpose of stopping the election result being officially declared, the mob storm the Capitol Building during which five people die and knowing that the mob had declared their intention to kill members of the Congress he chose to do nothing to stop them and then knowing all these facts all but seven members of the Republican Party vote not guilty, resulting in Mr Trump not being impeached.
The last person who tried something like this in Great Britain was Guy Fawkes who in 1606 attempted to blow up the British Parliament but luckily enough he and three others failed and were arrested and tried for high treason which resulted in them all being sentenced to be hung, drawn and quartered.
I will leave you to draw your own conclusions as to whether you can draw any similarities between Mr Trump’s attempt at high treason and that of Guy Fawkes.
