Trump is making his move. The over-riding concern of the prior 51 posts of this series is now seen to be taking place. Trump is taking power as an absolute ruler. Trump’s lawyers are now asserting that he is above the law – that he can neither be indicted, nor even investigated, for committing a crime. He now does as he pleases, and dares anyone to do anything about it.
When will the Democratic party, with its majority in the House, come together to move impeachment forward with the urgency it requires? What, in the meantime, will the Republican members of Congress do, in the way of protecting our democracy from Trump? Anything? Are they all on Putin’s payroll?
Will he be successfully impeached in the House ? If so, will the Senate convict him? If so, will he refuse to leave office? If so, will the military forcibly evict him?
This is an emergency. What we naive Americans never supposed could happen in this country is happening – right before our eyes. We are now forced to contemplate what it will be like – life under a dictator. This is a nightmare made real.
