With tightened security, including closing of icons like the Washington Monument, the National Capital gets ready for another poentiall insurrection by Trump supporters as calls increase for him to resign.
What happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6 was not an ad hoc protest, but a planned criminal attack on the American democratic republic by a mob determined to a violent overthrow of the representative government of the United States.
The GOP ignored the threats to the American way of life and contributed to his inciting of his supporters to outright, violent sedition against Congress, the government and this nation. They ignored the dangers because Trump promised to pack the Supreme Court with conservative judges and worse.
Momentum continues to build in Congress to get rid of Trump as quickly as possible.
The damage to America’s democracy and soul by Trump is immeasurable, but does it outweigh the pandemic, economy and other issues?
