Brian Kilmeade, speaking on Fox and Friends, suggested indicting President Donald Trump a second time over the Republicans’ threat of mass violence after the Capitol attack last week.
Many people want Trump to “continue to be a force in the Republican Party,” said Kilmeade, adding that they “believe a lot what he believes.”
Trump “has 75 million supporters,” he continued, “so if you have an overarching feeling that I need to bring the country together because we see what is going on in this country, how 50 state houses are threatened.” Inauguration day, that’s the last thing you want to do. I am surprised now [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer is exploring a possible workaround using the power granted to two Senators in 2004 to reconvene the Senate in an emergency. I assume and have an impeachment idea. “
Kilmeade added that outgoing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), “Has to sign it, but it would be just as stupid as [Speaker of the House] Nancy Pelosi hopped on ’60 Minutes’ last night and said the president is an imminent threat and he needs to be derailed. “

An impeachment vote could take place tomorrow. Impeachment procedures were officially launched yesterday accusing President Trump of instigating the Capitol riot that resulted in the death of a Capitol police officer. Four insurgents – one shot by officers and the other shot over medical emergencies – during the Capitol Storm, which occurred after President Trump ordered his supporters to disrupt the election certificate of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
