    Surge Summary: One week before a new president is sworn in, vengeful Democratic officials are determining whether they will be attempting to impeach current President Donald Trump now or after he leaves office — even though it’s questionable that’s even possible.

    I want to make something very clear:  The left, the media and too many Republicans are suggesting that Donald Trump incited violence last week and caused that riot on Capitol Hill.  He did no such thing, and we cannot allow this “big lie” to prevail.

    During his remarks before the terrible events that unfolded on Capitol Hill, President Trump said, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your votes heard today.”

    Calling on Americans to “peacefully and patriotically” protest at the Capitol, at the White House and at the Supreme Court has been done since the founding of this country.  The president did not incite his supporters to riot.

    Famed Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz vowed to defend Trump again, insisting that his remarks do not rise to the level of an impeachable offense and that they were constitutionally protected free speech.

    Even the left-wing site Snopes refused to say that Trump incited violence.  And this timeline of events indicates that the president was still speaking when the violence began.

    Any reporter and politician who insists that President Trump incited violence is engaged in a big lie to smear the president, his conservative supporters and the entire conservative movement.

    The intolerant progressive left won’t be satisfied with driving Donald Trump from office.  They want to make conservatives unemployable and they want to make normal conservative opinions unspeakable.

    This is tyranny plain and simple.
