After five episodes of it Lively excitement about the solstice In the United States, there are so many firearms in the room that the smoke alarm howls. There is not even talk of “gun smoke,” but there is tangible evidence from the countless witnesses who saw and heard the shooting. Donald Trump attempted to nullify legal elections and prevent a peaceful change of power.
“Just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to us,” was the message to Jeffrey Rosen, the attorney general who took office after faithful William Barr finally resigned. Even for him, the border passed by inversion. When Rosen also refused to fabricate election fraud, Trump wanted to replace him with a useful, incompetent idiot who was willing to agree to the fraud.
undue pressure on The Department of Justice is one of the smoking guns of the hearings, and Trump’s attempt to hire people who were willing to break the law for him is also reminiscent of Nixon’s last desperate days. But it is doubtful whether Trump’s ruthless brutality makes a greater impression on many viewers who watch the live drama. How Trump and his associates cynically destroyed the lives of innocent election officials, hanging them by name and sending a mob after them. Ordinary Americans who did and threatened their job have been intimidated and threatened by the authoritarian Trump regime.
Now he is fallen by his own. The witnesses are Republicans, his family and close associates, who say Trump not only lost his foothold in the weeks after the election. Everything was planned in advance, and when he did not get what he wanted, he sent a mob to Congress. As he said while watching the attack on TV; Maybe Mike Pence deserves to be hanged?
However, few believe that will be tried. It’s not just general wisdom in the comment fields, that those who were so skeptical that he couldn’t win in 2016 are now equally skeptical that he won’t just go, but win the next presidential election. Fortunately, the latter will never happen.
This is a nightmare for Joe Biden’s attorney general, Merrick Garland, who will have to consider in the fall whether enough evidence has been presented to launch an investigation. There is no doubt that many accomplices will stand trial without one shedding a tear, but investigating and targeting a former president presents an even greater challenge, even in normal times. In the United States today, it seems almost impossible.
When the Republicans heard Nixon’s audio recordings regarding Watergate, even most faithful crawled into the White House said; You have to go down. You no longer have our support. Now there is no such loyalty to federalism among Republicans. The Arizona Republican senator testified as he cried about the family being harassed and threatened with death for months by the Trump crowd after he agreed to the election result. He was hanged as a pedophile in his neighborhood. Surely he blamed Trump for that, however, if Trump goes to the polls next time, he will vote for him again.
Why in the world? The explanation is simple and timeless: money and debt. As long as Low Church Protestants impose restrictions on abortion and gay rights, and the wealthy get tax breaks and deregulation, there is little fascism to live with.
Merrick Garland is sweating Where he sits and follows the sessions. Right now, he may seem doomed to fail no matter what he does. How can he begin investigating Biden’s predecessor, who is also a potential presidential candidate in the upcoming election, without being accused of a political witch-hunt and thus dividing the country? Can he trust that the evidence is good enough for a trial? What if Trump is acquitted?
But perhaps Garland is also considering the judgment of history. What if he didn’t do it when documentation is so cumbersome? The fear of Trump’s followers on the far right is great, but at the same time there is a large majority in the United States that will respond forcefully if Trump runs away. The sessions have a high viewership, and a majority of Republican voters follow the sessions closely or fairly closely. A recent poll showed that as many as 58% now believe Trump should be prosecuted. It is amazingly high.
Republicans may have made a historic mistake by refusing to participate. Thus, sessions were allowed to continue without interruption, fogging and circus. He brought the truth to the table and the facts to the people. It’s been a while since America has tested it, and they’re embracing it.
