They have to be certified by 5pm on the second Friday following the election, so by next Friday.
Well then I’m really looking forward to the 20th. Biden will be inaugurated, the senate will be officially flipped and we can get to work pulling the nation out of the gutter. Although I’m sure it won’t be that simple with as many shenanigans as the opposition has been pulling...

Sounds like we could realistically be rid of Trump before then. Cabinet was discussing potentially enacting the 25th amendment last night, and the judiciary committee has sent a request to Mike Pence about it as well. Considering the terrorists yesterday broke in for Pence’s head in Trump’s name, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s also been considering it.

Okay... What exactly got PogChamp kicked out of Twitch?

I'm... no one has to answer if its such a touchy subject; but... I'm legitimately out-of-the-blank as to what the hell's going on other than violent, angry Trump supporters going wild.

As far as I know he was supporting those terrorists when they were storming the Capitol.

I think we should wish for an orderly transition and no more violence. I think America has had enough of the violence, especially in the past 24 hours. I think what happened in the past 24 hours has seen America's credibility tarnished, and I think a smooth transition from Trump to Biden will restore America's credibility in the world.

Sadly, people have died today as a result of violence, mainly fueled by websites promoting conspiracy theories like those run by Alex Jones. I hope that people in the United States of America realise the harm that people like Alex Jones and other conspiracy theorists has done to a otherwise great country, and I hope that Joe Biden will help heal the division that has been created in the past four years by the divisive policies of Donald Trump. I would love to see a Truth and Reconciliation Commission in the United States to help heal the divisions in the country, similar to other countries such as South Africa after Apartheid.

I hope to see an end to the violence and division that plague the United States of America, and no doubt everyone here would love to see an end to the violence and division that had plagued a great country. It takes a lot more than rhetoric to "Make America Great Again", and that actually involves improving a country's image by doing good in the world, such as providing clean drinking water and sanitation to developing countries and following international law and promote international cooperation and not being a rogue state. I think what we saw in the past 24 hours is the exact opposite and would not help America's image in the world.

On a related note, in regards to the new rule for this thread, I agree with the new rule, but did anyone notice United States was spelt wrong? It was spelt Unites State instead of United States.

Was texting my girlfriend this morning about what happened yesterday in DC. Needless to say, we were both shocked and appalled by those events.

Also, the House is adjourned until after the Inauguration and the Senate is adjourned until 19 January due to yesterday’s riots. The only way he’ll be removed now is 25th Amendment.

Trump is no longer allowing Pence's chief of staff into the White House. Adamn Kizinger, the GOP representative of Illinois' 16th District, has called for the 25th Amendment.

The next couple days are going to be wild, huh.

Good morning. In 13 days, Joe Biden will be President and Democrats will have unified control of the Federal government.

Sorry to be annoying about this, but if the Senate is adjourned until the 19th, does that mean that the two new Dem senators can’t be sworn in until then either?
