Trump may very well agree to resign if Pence will Pardon him in return. Which would be sad considering Trump just spend the last 72 hours throwing the man under the bus.
The edits were incredibly clumsily done, too. Would be fascinating to see what was in those missing sections (I think it's pretty easy to guess).

Seeing conflicting reports on this.
U.S. Capitol Police say the report that one of its officers had died after being assaulted by violent protesters loyal to President Trump is not accurate. NPR incorrectly reported the death based on information from a well-placed source.

Something I find so very funny is how right wingers first fearmonger and decry leftists as radical, city burning anarchists, and then they say "Hold my beer".

It seems like right wingers are every bit as violent and extreme as they claim leftists are. Now, what was the term for that again? I think it starts with a "p", ends with "rojection".

The Ultra Christians are still sticking behind Trump and claiming the country is being stolen by the Democrats.

The woman who died is Ashli Babbitt, Air Force vet who was stationed in Afghanistan/Iraq.

She later on got sucked into the Qanon groups. Good luck to anyone who wants to see her twitter feed.

From an objective point of view... Well, prior to Biden being elected, I'd heard about potentially having to open the Fourth Box, as I call it. I don't think anyone wants to realize that in many ways, the rioters did exactly that, because that's called having your own medicine used against you.

To be totally clear, what they did was an absolute atrocity. But, I like to do this thing called "get into the mindset of the opponent", the thing that so many like to quote the ancient general Sun Tzu about.

I look at it this way: in their own deranged way, they decided it was time to open the 4th box. The Boxes are the Soapbox, Ballot, Jury... and Ammo. I heard more than enough people on the Left saying that if Trump had won a second term, it would be time to open the Ammo box. Fortunately for them, Biden was elected. But... that still leaves 74 million people who lost and became Highly Upset. These others... they're really still using the Soapbox online, they used the Ballot Box, the Jury box keeps going against them (SCOTUS throwing out challenges)... so the Fourht Box, the Ammo box, was opened. Of course, that's the same box which is equivalent to opening Pandora's Box; once you do it, there's no going back.

Personally, I'm beginning to pity them. Even if by modern-day standards they have no place in society... the fact of the matter is, they're still humans who exist. But, I still do hope every one of them sees a minimal of 20 years behind bars.

The USCP describes it as collapsing in office after receiving injuries at the riot and then dying in the hospital. So yeah, I think it is accurate to say that he got killed due the riot as otherwise he wouldn't have gotten injured there.

It is called domestic radicalization, all thanks to social networks like Facebook that have profited from letting dangerous lies spread freely, the mantra being "It is not terrorist radicalization if done by white 'murricans". Ever heard the story of the kid that played with fire until he burned down the house?

Meanwhile even now the GOP is covering the child emperor, pence is doing what he does best, being invisible, resisting to talk the possibility of invoking the 25th. You can bet your whole 401k that moscow mitch will delay a new impeachment by two weeks, giving trump enough time to pardon himself or to twist pence into a pretzel until he grants trump the pardons he desperately needs.

Then, the day of Biden's inauguration Trump will declare himself "legitimate president". How do I know? Because that is what more than a decade ago his twin (remember the Danny Devito movie?) here in Mexico did when he lost the election. He went as far as making a shadow cabinet and dedicated all his energies to pressure the elected legislators from his own political party to block any reforms to make the new government look useless.

He can declare himself as Jesus if he wants

Who is going to support him besides a bunch of larpers and internet warriors. Most of the GOP already burned bridges with Trump base. At this rate they no longer fear being primaried. They expect it

The worst Trump can do is inspire more Oklahoma bombers.

It's sad that only now are social media sites suspending or banning Trump. It's clear that they were afraid of retaliation by him, and for obviously good reason, and felt they could only just now act once the electoral votes were finally recorded by Congress removing the last chance of any 11th hour turn around.

He could always make a deal over it like if he gets pardoned then he agrees never to run for the office again. That would allow republicans to save face with his voter base. And democrats no longer have to deal with him and get the same effect as an impeach. Plus Trump still has many state issued lawsuits to deal with that is bound to keep him busy for a long time

He sure does not sound like the man you are describing in his latest tweet.

Probably because it was actually peaceful by the standards set during BLM protests.

45% of Republicans approve of the Capitol riots, poll claims

Be afraid, very afraid ...

Well Democrats are making a lot of noise about rushing an impeachment through but I don't see enough Republicans getting a spine transplant. Riots didn't stop them from still making pointless objections to certifications. Even if Trump gets barred from public office from a successful impeachment he'll still try to puppeteer proxies to do his bidding for him. Still a point has to be made, this can't be excused by remaining silent.
