Inauguration Day is only seven weeks away. In “normal” times, the outgoing president and his team would at this point be facilitating a smooth transfer of power—tying up a few policy loose ends, but generally making way for the new president and acknowledging the new political priorities of that president.
None of that is happening with Donald Trump. In fact, quite the reverse........
Given how the post-election period has developed, it’s not enough to remove this man from power. His authoritarian presence on the political stage, the cancer that he represents on the American body politic, must be obliterated, leaving absolutely no possibility of a second act. For he has in this past month declared total war on American democracy. And in this struggle, there can be no middle ground.
There is a lot of talk of “healing” and “moving on,” of ignoring Trump’s myriad crimes in order to somehow nurture the greater good. But healing involves, at the very least, acknowledgment of culpability on the part of the guilty—that was, after all, the foundational principle of South Africa’s post-apartheid Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Trump is not only not admitting any culpability, but his rampage against the legal, political, and cultural pillars of American democracy is actually intensifying as his term in office draws to a close.
Without even a nod to truth, there certainly can be no reconciliation. Trump’s disgraceful, dangerous behavior, from his self-dealing while in government to his last-ditch efforts to subvert the popular will, is cratering trust in American democracy. For this, he must be made to face a legal reckoning.

And down is up and evil is good.
It’s time to heal...
The Bolsheviks wiped out the Romanoffs. These people play for keeps.
Sasha is a fellow at the Open Societies Institute. And he’s crazy.
Exactly. Collectively speaking, America’s Left-Right Deepstate is Gollum, whose ‘precious’ was stolen by Trump and his supporters. Getting the ring of power back is not enough, its ‘miserable thieves must pay’ for what they did. Sick, sick, sick!
Maybe it’d help to know ....the 80 million Americans who voted for Trump don’t agree with any of this hate-filled rant.
“Liberals” sure are big on criminalizing opposition.
They cannot be trusted, ever, with any kind of power.
It’s like putting the Vindictive DMV lady in charge of your life.
Yeah let’s let these deranged lunatics be in charge...
That’s a smash-worthy face.
That’s a smash-worthy face.
Trust fund baby....look at that camel hair jacket....no dumpster diving for him.
Threatening to prosecute Trump is a smokescreen to deflect attention from those two issues.
I won’t click on this rancid site. Maybe you can help me. Besides calling Trump myriad names, did the author disclose any of Trump’s “myriad crimes?”
And a Stalinist.
You spelled p**** wrong.
With this threat, DJT might as well do the martial law option as suggested by Lin Wood.
I keep asking, I never get an answer.
>>Trump’s myriad crimes<<
Name ONE. Since there’s a myriad, it must be easy.
