The fall from grace isn’t a fall it’s a plummet.

All those guns in the Capitol, if armed protestors/rioters do turn up it could go very bad and very quick 🙈
A plummet from grace would suggest he was on a high platform morally . In fact he was so far below that his fall isn’t so much a plummet as a topple over.

Don't underestimate what this vote will do to Trump. It's not only a bigger stain on his presidency, but it's just another step on his way down. He'll be looking to declare bankruptcy again once his debts become due and his funds start either being frozen or dwindled due to the legal cases he faces. Don't forget, as well as the PGA pulling the rug, Deutsche Bank have turned on him as will others.
Of course, lickspittles like Jim Jordan will still blame everyone but Trump, but the GOP will already be thinking how they can win back the faith of their voters after not doing anything about Trump for the past 4 or 5 years.

What’s the point? He’s gone in 7 days anyway? Are they worried what he might declassify in the next week?
No, its to make sure it's on the record he caused the insurrection. People who commit crimes should be charged of them regardless. Also it'll stop him running again. Also it'll hopefully discourage any further president from trying to stir up civil unrest

Only US President in history to be impeached twice.
What a sorry state the world is in
Also sorry to be picky but America isn't the world. Yes it's important but there are many good world leaders. Many worse then trump too. China, Russia, Turkey and Hungary for example.

Given he steps down in a matter of days it seems pointless on the face of it.

But I think this is about making sure he is made politically impotent, given that he would be prevented from running again, should the impeachment be found against him.

Also, Trump has demonstrated how powerless the US state is against a rogue president. Impeachment, regardless of the timing, is the right and proper thing to do in order to demonstrate that the actions of any president are not beyond prosecution.

Absolutely. I think this may be why impeachment gained more support from Republicans that expected. There may be a certain about of self-interest in clearing the way for four years time going on.

Yes, this as well. The events of last week have pretty much ended his association with the Republicans, so there will be cross-party interest in ending his political interests.
