Some weeks we chase the news, others it is inescapable.
This week, President Donald J. Trump made history by becoming the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice. The House impeachment, led by Democrats and signed by 10 Republicans, came as the FBI drilled deeper into the breach of the U.S. Capitol building and the National Guard descended on the nation’s Capitol in an effort to step up security in the days before President-elect Joseph Biden’s inauguration.
As House Democrats decried the president’s actions leading up to the breach, the Joint Chiefs of Staff released a statement to the forces, reminding all servicemembers of their obligation to their oath to defend the Constitution of the United States. The statement sought to assuage concerns that the National Guard might get distracted by the highly politicized climate.
While the country watched the political theatrics in DC, Big Tech was busy blackballing the president. Twitter, which had already suspended and banned POTUS from its platform, took huge losses in the markets as disgruntled users jumped ship and others were injudiciously suspended or saw their following drop by thousands.
