The Republican party is closing ranks now. Days after what is now starting to be understood as a serious, planned takeover of the US Capitol, at the express direction of Trump, we start to see how it’s going to play out. Admit to a small thing like “poor leadership”, but reject the principle point the US president is a madman who is trying to overthrow his own government.
President Trump showed extremely poor leadership on Wednesday, but there is no good Constitutional argument for impeachment. Speaker Pelosi knows the Senate will not try this case before the President leaves office. Impeachment will only worsen divisions, rather than uniting us.
