What did we discover from Donald Trump’s 2nd impeachment demo?

1) Republicans will under no circumstances maintain Donald Trump accountable, in spite of their constitutional responsibility to do so. There is no conceivable act that they would see as an impeachable offense – not undermining the Constitution, democracy and the rule of legislation not incitement to overthrow a legitimate election not bribery, corruption, or pathological lying to the American men and women.

2) This is Trump’s Republican Get together. They can no for a longer period connect with themselves the legislation-and-buy celebration. They can connect with on their own the Massive Lie Get together, the Hoax and Fraud Party, and the Anti-democracy Celebration.

3) Their cult leader is with no a moral compass and has a poisonous want for electricity. He took no accountability for the gatherings of Jan. 6 and manufactured no attempt to cease the insurrection once it started off. He feels no remorse for putting legislators, police, election officials, and his individual vice president into harm’s way.

4) Trump’s The usa is 1 of conflict and chaos, armed vigilantes, empowered white supremacists, QAnon, conspiracies, and division.

5) Republicans are untrustworthy as legislative companions, even additional so than those who exploited Obama’s endeavor at bipartisanship in 2009. Trump Republicans see compromise as capitulation, prioritizing get together around the nation.

Donald Trump continue to has not acknowledged that Joe Biden is the lawfully elected POTUS – very same with his followers. As de facto chief of the Republican Social gathering, he remains an existential risk to our democracy. The Republican Social gathering has marketed its soul to a despot.
