No unity until Trump is exiled and defenders admit their mistakes


Donald Trump is impeached. He has now set two records: He is the first president to be impeached twice, and the first president to shatter the unbroken American history of the peaceful transfer of power. He has shown no remorse for his actions and he should be removed from office, even if it is 10 minutes before noon on Jan. 20, if that is all that is available.

The president’s supporters, however, now plead for understanding and inclusion, for lowering the temperature, for moving on. In speech after speech Wednesday on the floor of the House, the same Republicans who had no objections to the president’s incitement to insurrection now have deep concerns about parliamentary process, the rule of law and national unity. 

This is moral charlatanism and I say to hell with it.

It is almost impossible to comprehend the sheer moral poverty of the people calling now for unity. Elected Republicans now admit they fear for their physical safety from their own constituents, but instead of thunderous defenses of the Constitution, we have soft mewling from people like Sen. Marco Rubio and his Bible-Verse-A-Day tweets, or the head-spinning duplicity of Sen. Lindsey Graham, who within days of saying “count me out” of any further sedition was jollying it up with the president on Air Force One.
