History Will Condemn Senators Who Turn a Blind Eye to Trump’s Monstrous Crimes
We begin with the impeachment case the House Managers are making to the senate that makes it clear Trump set up his followers before the election claiming that if he lost it was stolen, then after the election he pounded away at the “stop the steal” lie eventually inviting his hardcore supporters to come to Washington on January 6th promising them it was going to be wild. Then after riling them up at a rally he directed them to storm the capitol in a last-ditch effort to stop Biden’s electoral college certification and even enjoyed watching the mob’s disgraceful brutality and vandalism praising these thugs and after it was all over, promising them to “remember this day forever.” We discuss exactly how this day will be remembered and whether those senators who fail to do their duty to defend the constitution and American decency will live in infamy in the history books and speak with Caroline Fredrickson, professor of law at Georgetown University and a fellow at the Brennan Center and president emerita of the American Constitution Society. The author of The AOC Way: The Secrets of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Success, she joins us to assess whether perhaps the single most outrageous attack against American democracy and the peaceful transition of power by a lowlife huckster weaponizing the big lie to impose his dictatorial rule, will go unpunished because enough Senate Republicans no longer believe in democracy and will do whatever it takes to stay in power.
