House Speaker Nancy Pelosi revealed to CBS’s Lesley Stahl on 60 Minutes Monday that “one of the motivations” for pushing for the impeachment of President Donald Trump days before he’s set to leave office is to prevent him from running again for office.

Many Congressional Democrats pushing for impeachment now argue that President Trump incited Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol in a speech he gave moments before it occurred.

During his speech just before Congress was to certify the electoral college results, Trump told supporters, ” We’re gonna walk down…to the Capitol and we’re gonna cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women and we’re probably not gonna be cheering so much for some of them because they’ll never take back the country with weakness, you have to show strength and you have to be strong.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-MN, who is joining Pelosi’s calls and is set to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump Monday, says, “we cannot afford to really see this man in office any longer.”

However, attorney Jonathan Turley argues “that this impeachment will not only create precedent for an expedited pathway of ‘snap impeachments’ but allow future Congresses to impeach presidents for actions of their supporters.”

Trump was previously impeached by the U.S. House in December 2020 for Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress over his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The Senate later acquitted Trump on both charges.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
