Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s Home Edition recorded on this date, January 14th, 2021.
Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives voted again to impeach outgoing president, Donald Trump. Only ten Republican legislators joined the majority Democrats to make Trump the first American president twice indicted by the House.
The next step is a trial in the Republican dominated Senate, which failed to convict the first time around. All this all comes in the wake of the January 6th storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters following a rally in which Trump reiterated his stolen election mantra, exhorting the crowd to “fight like Hell” to take back their government.

Today, Dave Lindorff and will Donald Trump’s last stand take American democracy down with him?
