    WITCH HUNT: Democrats Move The Goal Posts After Impeachment Loses Steam Among Republicans (trendingpolitics.com)

    Not certain they can constitutionally do censure of a private citizen or even by the censure rules.
    Maybe they should simply call a hit man, but no they want Trump and all republicans publicly humiliated in the public eye.

    Those 'evil republicans' are up to no good... traitors, 'orange man bad'...

    Censure in the United States - Wikipedia

    Members of Congress who have been censured are required to give up any committee chairs they hold. Like a reprimand, a censure does not remove a member from their office so they retain their title, stature, and power to vote. There are also no legal consequences that come with a reprimand or censure. The main difference is that a reprimand is "considered a slap on the wrist and can be given in private and even in a letter," while a censure is "a form of public shaming in which the politician must stand before his peers to listen to the censure resolution."[3]

    Even so, this petition talks of censuring a sitting POTUS, which then excludes a private citizen. GONG these people upside the head, box their ears.

    Petition · PETITION TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES REQUESTING THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP BE CENSURED · Change.org


    [​IMG]
    Jules Bernstein started this petition to The Congress of the United States


    PETITION TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES UNDER THE FIRST AMENDMENT REQUESTING THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP BE CENSURED

    The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gives every citizen the right to petition Congress "for the Redress of Grievances." And the Senate and House of Representatives have the power to "Censure" (condemn) a sitting President for misconduct.

    From the time Donald Trump assumed the Presidency, he has been engaging in continuing acts of misconduct requiring that he be Censured by both the Senate and House. While some of Trump's actions may be sufficient to support his impeachment, we believe that at a minimum they require his immediate Censure by Congress.

    Their entire purpose is to try to make it illegal; for him to run again!

    I dont think they can. How about can a convicted felon run for POTUS?
    If they can prosecute and jail him, Pelosi said she wants to see Trump in prison, he can't run again. I expect this is something they are working on now.

    Google says that President Biden is President so how can there be a motion to censure President Trump? Clearly, this is an error and they want to censure President Biden. Did the Democrats check to see who is President? They should ask Silicon Valley.

    True, they can only censure a sitting president, who is Biden for the moment.
    But don't tell them, they know better, they are superior elite rulers and we their serfs.

    All part of the master plan by the Illuminati to remove Biden, reinstall Trump-Harris and then the Democrats finally have the votes to censure and impeach him. :rolleyes:

    They can make something up. Something related to bank fraud or related to his school he ran. They want all his bank records and accounts in New York State, the state AG is looking into charging him with a crime, if she can.

    If they can do this to a former president, just think what can do to rest of us!
