Trump military coup in progress–HOUSE MUST IMPEACH TRUMP NOW!

Trump’s protesters in Washington have stormed the Capitol building, causing the evacuation of the building and the disruption of of Congressional ratification of the electoral college vote.

This is sedition and insurrection.

It has the air of being a carefully planned plot to launch a military coup to overthrow the election and the Constitution.

Other elements that are unfolding.

There were bomb threats that briefly caused the evacuation of Congressional office buildings.

Word is coming in of demonstrations planned or taking place in other cities.

Trump’s next step may be to invoke the Insurrection Act and order federal troops into Washington, D.C. to regain control of the Capitol building, and into other cities where demonstrations may threaten public order.

Any federal troops ordered to intervene in this situation, which is entirely of President Trump’s creation, should question whether the order is a lawful and constitutional order.

Pro-democratic forces should stay off the streets in Washington, for now, to avoid feeding the disorder that Trump and his supporters are trying to create.

With his secret, classified Emergency Powers, Trump could declare martial law in Washington, D.C. and other cities.

THE HOUSE SHOULD IMMEDIATELY BEGIN AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, AND IMPEACH TRUMP WITHIN THE NEXT DAY OR HOURS.

This is real. The is what the 10 former Secretaries of Defense warned against in their recent Washington Post Op-Ed piece.

Democrats should engage with amateur radio operators in order to guarantee critical communications in the event President Trump uses his secret, classified Emergency Powers to seize communications systems and/or shut down the Internet.

Anyone who watched Trump’s speech to his followers this morning can understand that he is operating in a world of illusions that is totally divorced from reality.

This is not a joke. This is not funny.

This appears to be the real thing, following a carefully scripted plan.
