A Conspiracy That Morally Indicts The Whole Party
Donald Trump and 18 other accomplices were indicted for conspiring to overturn the election results in Georgia. They’ll have their day in court, and we should expect the Fulton County District Attorney to present a clear case for their criminality.
But really, this goes way beyond Trump and 18 others. This is a conspiracy that morally indicts every member of the GOP.
It involves senators, congressmen, congressional staffers, the RNC, big money donors – this is corruption that goes right to the core of the Republican Party. And that’s ultimately why Republicans are defending it. Wondering why even Trump’s opponents are defending him? That’s why.
People are already trying to compare this case to Watergate. But the difference here is that Nixon faced a reckoning from his own party. There were figures of moral conviction who ended up holding him accountable. Today, there is no major figure in the GOP, whether serving in Congress or running for President, who really wants to reckon with the criminal enterprise that is Donald Trump.
They still publicly claim that the 2020 election was stolen. They still clutch to crazed conspiracies about voter fraud. They still sound exactly like Trump and his 18 other accomplices.
In the court of public opinion, we must indict them all. And we have to hold them all accountable at the ballot box.
Of course, that doesn’t mean anything from a point of legal action. But in terms of how history remembers these people, and how our country is able to move forward from this dark political moment, it means everything.
And to hold them accountable, everyone from Trump to the RNC staffers who still push his lies, we must defeat them. If we’re going to maintain our constitutional republic, we have to.
