Colorado’s House delegation splits along party lines as Donald Trump is impeached for a second time

The four Democratic members of Colorado’s U.S. House delegation — Diana DeGette, Joe Neguse, Ed Perlmutter and Jason Crow — voted to impeach Trump

Littwin: In the madness that has overtaken Washington, Colorado’s Lauren Boebert brings her own

It’s one thing to be a conspiracy theorist who is in over her head, but it’s another to do it as part of the Sedition Caucus. And so Boebert is being blasted even by GOP members of Congress.

Three Republican lawmakers, including third-ranking House GOP leader Liz Cheney of Wyoming, announced they would vote to impeach Trump on Wednesday

Littwin: The House is planning for a second impeachment. How many Senate Republicans will answer the call?

Don’t count on the 25th Amendment for help in Trump’s waning days in office. Impeachment and conviction would be hard. But history and justice demand an official reaction.

Ken Buck now says Trump “deserves some of the blame” for U.S. Capitol riot; Colorado Democrats demand president’s removal

Buck, a Colorado Republican, said earlier that the president wasn’t responsible for the destructive mob. Democrat Diana DeGette is demanding that Donald Trump be ousted.

Opinion: Was it a coup? No, but the U.S. Capitol siege was the election violence of a fragile democracy

Littwin: We had to know that Trump, in the end, wouldn’t leave without trying to burn the place down

It was a riot, an insurrection, a plot against America. It was Trump’s presidency in its death throes, and with every one of his enablers responsible for the assault on democracy.

Littwin: Next up in our theater of the absurd, the Sedition Caucus takes its turn in pushing Trump’s rigged-election fiction

Meanwhile in the real world, Democrats have won one Senate runoff race and seem poised to win the other in Georgia, which would, stunningly, give Dems effective control of the Senate.

In a first, Congress overrides Donald Trump’s veto of defense bill

Colorado's U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democrat, voted in favor of the veto override. Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner was listed as "not voting."

Littwin: A thought experiment — what if Trump had called for $2,000 stimulus checks before the election?

It’s now left to Mitch McConnell and Senate GOP to determine whether the House-passed $2,000 check proposal gets a Senate vote. Anyone heard from Cory Gardner on this?

The House also overrode Trump's veto of the National Defense Authorization Act on Monday night. Colorado's U.S. Rep. Ken Buck was the only member of the state's House delegation to side with the president and vote to block the override.
