GOP is not interested in unity. They tried to overturn election results for 2 months and then planned a coup
There needs to be accountability. Germans ignored a failed Hitler coup in 1924. He took control in the coup of 1933
In 1923, Adolf Hitler led a failed coup. He was treated leniently. Germany moved on.— Mark Jacob (@MarkJacob16) January 8, 2021
A decade later, he was dictator, and the worst disaster in the history of the civilized world ensued.
In 2021, when the president of the United States leads a failed coup, we must not move on.
“We must move on. This is a time for unity”, said Hitler from his bunker.— Tea Pain (@TeaPainUSA) January 10, 2021
1923: Hitler’s failed coup.— Andrea Junker ® (@Strandjunker) January 9, 2021
No real consequences.
No fundamental changes.
1933: Hitler takes power.
I wish I could burn this into everyone’s mind.
To my former Republican colleagues: You want unity?— Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom) January 9, 2021
1. Condemn Wednesday’s insurrection.
2. Acknowledge that you’ve been lying about voter fraud and a “stolen” election.
3. Apologize for lying.
4. Stop attacking our democracy.
5. Congratulate Joe Biden.
Then we can talk.
Tough. @realDonaldTrump doesn't get a pass on inciting violent insurrection, and no Sedition Caucus member should whine about "lowering the temperature and uniting the country" after trying to subvert our election. Unbelievable. https://t.co/bEYyWBu5iw— Eric Swalwell (@ericswalwell) January 8, 2021
Watch this video. Some @GOP legislators think we “heal” our nation by ignoring what happened on Jan 6. NO.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) January 9, 2021
We heal our nation by holding those responsible for the coup attempt, starting with the man who incited it: Donald Trump.
If Trump doesn’t resign, he must be impeached. https://t.co/5ks1THWEmQ
Imagine 9/11, only no press conferences explaining what happened or what was ongoing, and a third of Congress expressing sympathy with Al Qaida and urging us to forget the attack in the name of unity.— Seth Masket (@smotus) January 10, 2021
We can’t paper over the assault on the Capitol with empty calls for ‘unity.’ Unless my party faces the truth of what happened and holds those responsible to account, we will never regain the public’s trust and earn the honor of leading the nation forward. https://t.co/QudmjFEZ8o— Rep.

DO NOT FALL FOR THE "UNITY AND HEALING" B.S.— A.J. Delgado (@AJDelgado13) January 9, 2021
Like a horror-movie villain who pretends to be injured and submissive to then strike, the RNC is now doing the "But how will the nation HEAL if we impeach Trump? Let's come together!"
Nope. Not interested.
See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. As people lay dying after DC violence and the virus raged, GOP party leaders were in Florida praising #Trump. To all u independents and both siders, Democrats don’t do this shit. https://t.co/F757ZNbYmu— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) January 9, 2021
To all of the Republicans hiding behind the "let's move on" bull-sh*t. I don't you saying that post-9/11 when you started a war. I don’t remember you saying after Benghazi when you dragged @HillaryClinton in front of your "committee" for 11 hours of testimony.#ImpeachTrumpNow pic.twitter.com/Y6T2Qk5fFx— Kurt Bardella (@kurtbardella) January 10, 2021
NEWS: A group of US House GOPers who voted to accept Biden’s Electoral College victory are asking Biden to persuade Pelosi to back off impeaching Trump for Capitol riot. @RepKenBuck and others warn in letter it would inflame Trump supporters, damage efforts to unify country.— Jennifer Jacobs (@JenniferJJacobs) January 9, 2021
Too many in today’s GOP duck all accountability and responsibility. For record debt. Systemic voter suppression. Accelerating climate destruction. Stoking racial divisions. Now, many act like an insurrection and attempted coup are no more than an errant tweet. Values my ass.— David Plouffe (@davidplouffe) January 10, 2021
The hypocrisy of those. -- elected officials and others -- who supported the overthrow of the will of the people on January 6th and are now calling for unity is stunning. Just stunning.— Michael McFaul (@McFaul) January 9, 2021

Let me give you a hint Jim-— David Hogg (He / Him) (@davidhogg111) January 9, 2021
it’s doesn’t start with saying heads on pikes, planting pipe bombs, loading up on guns and demanding to hang the Vice President.
As one of your +350 million bosses I am requesting you resign by EOD. https://t.co/A2MHhrpn9n
The next person I see talk about the political implications of impeachment might cause me to stroke out.— Tim Miller (@Timodc) January 8, 2021
He attempted a coup. He pressured @GaSecofState to find votes. He pressured VP to interfere with transfer of power. He incited a mob. 5 are dead.
IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH
Decent Republicans should:— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) January 10, 2021
1. Demand Trump resign.
2. Support impeachment and conviction.
3. Support Pence invoking the 25th amendment.
And Vice President Pence should announce that his first act as president will be to give several Capitol police officers the Medal of Freedom.
An astounding 68% of the House objected to Biden's certification even after the invasion. Then they called for unity and no impeachment
138 House Republicans voted to object to Pennsylvania's electors. That's ~65% of the House Republican caucus.— (((Harry Enten))) (@ForecasterEnten) January 7, 2021
Conor LAMB lights into Republicans.— Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney) January 7, 2021
"A woman died out there tonight, and you're making these objections," he said, accusing them of peddling lies of the kind that motivated the riots.
His comments led to a shouting match and near-scuffle in the chamber.https://t.co/r9ODg4nLNY
This isn’t on just the 13 Senators who are now challenging the certification. This is on all Republicans who waited more than a month to acknowledge that Biden won. Including @senatemajldr McConnell.— Al Franken (@alfranken) January 7, 2021
121 House Republicans — including Leader McCarthy — voted to toss out Arizona’s electoral ballots. https://t.co/xDg8wvuRxa— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) January 7, 2021
Bank of America has donated $448,500— Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) January 7, 2021
to 51 Republicans who supported today’s attempted coup.
When I asked Bank of America if it would continue supporting these Republicans in the future, the company didn’t respond. https://t.co/JhGHL1jEen https://t.co/epXMm0vSw9
Terrorists ransacked the US Capitol and *hours later* 138-of-202 (68%) House republicans voted to make trump a dictator. Nothing they say about unity is worth a nickel. They tried to finish the rioters’ job and end democracy.— Bill Pascrell, Jr. (@BillPascrell) January 10, 2021
Here are the 138 House republicans who voted to install trump as a dictator hours after murderous terrorists tried to do the same. How do you lecture about “unity” after seeking to end American democracy? pic.twitter.com/8vldXFdibn— Bill Pascrell, Jr. (@BillPascrell) January 10, 2021
What the criminal GOP who thought nothing of overturning the election results and inciting an insurrection, say now
No. 2 House Republican Rep. Steve Scalise: "I don't think anybody can look and say an impeachment of this president is the thing that's going to help unite and bring our country together."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) January 9, 2021
Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise’s decision to stand by President Trump after he incited a violent mob to storm the Capitol is fueling a bitter divide in the GOP conference at a perilous moment for the party https://t.co/KtN68Tokv2— POLITICO (@politico) January 9, 2021
They are placing a desire for vengeance above the best interests of the country. President-elect Joe Biden is right to reject calls to go down this dangerous path which will only further divide the country.— Rep. Kevin Brady (@RepKevinBrady) January 10, 2021
Really sad. At a time of deep national division, President-elect Biden’s choice to call his political opponents literal Nazis does nothing to bring us together or promote healing.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) January 8, 2021
This kind of vicious partisan rhetoric only tears our country apart. https://t.co/YMMepv1OhV
I oppose the Democrats very political push to impeach the President. There will be an inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden & a peaceful transition of power on January 20th. That is the American way. Stop politically shaming millions of Trump voters. https://t.co/jvx9xsWofO— Elise Stefanik (@EliseStefanik) January 10, 2021
In light of President Trump’s Thursday statement pledging an orderly transfer power and calling for healing in our nation, a second impeachment will do far more harm than good.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) January 11, 2021
Not the time. This is disgusting and divisive, not to mention hypocritical and false.— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) January 8, 2021
You said you wanted to heal the country. Actions speak louder than words. https://t.co/qXhZ7rPjXT
Republican AGs from various states were urging people to march to the Capitol
