GOP representatives John Katko and Liz Cheney say they will vote to impeach. She says everyone will have a "vote of conscience". She has spoken out against Trump at times, but the cynic in me thinks that she sees McCarthy as being vulnerable right now. So maybe a mix of conscience and opportunity....

quote:
Republican Rep. Liz Cheney says she will vote to impeach President Donald Trump.

The Wyoming congresswoman, the No. 3 Republican in the House, said in a statement Tuesday that Trump “summoned” the mob that attacked the Capitol last week, “assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack.” She says, “Everything that followed was his doing.”

She also notes that Trump could have immediately intervened to stop his supporters, but he did not.

Cheney says, “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.”


Also...

quote:
Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, has told associates that he believes President Trump committed impeachable offenses and that he is pleased that Democrats are moving to impeach him, believing that it will make it easier to purge him from the party, according to people familiar with his thinking. The House is voting on Wednesday to formally charge Mr. Trump with inciting violence against the country.

At the same time, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the minority leader and one of Mr. Trump’s most steadfast allies in Congress, has asked other Republicans whether he should call on Mr. Trump to resign in the aftermath of the riot at the Capitol last week, according to three Republican officials briefed on the conversations.

While Mr. McCarthy has said he is personally opposed to impeachment, he and other party leaders have decided not to formally lobby Republicans to vote “no,” and an aide to Mr. McCarthy said he was open to a measure censuring Mr. Trump for his conduct. In private, Mr. McCarthy reached out to a leading House Democrat to see if the chamber would be willing to pursue a censure vote, though Speaker Nancy Pelosi has ruled it out.

Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.

Debate on the impeachment happening right now.

CNN cuts away when the Republicans are talking.

Fox News cuts away when the Democrats are talking.

C-SPAN shows everyone.

That’s why I watch C-SPAN by default for political stuff.

Completeness of coverage aside, I don’t need commentaries and I certainly don’t need TV ads.
