Democrats must punish GOP’s ‘seditious seventeen’

On December 16, Representative Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), a talented member of the House Democratic leadership and favorite to be the next speaker, gave a thrilling speech. “I rise to condemn the treacherous and seditious behavior of some in this nation who continue to poison the integrity of our democracy,” he said. “It’s time to stop giving and comfort to an insurgency.”

Appropriate sentiments, but what should those who want to protect American democracy do? Right now it looks like the House Democrats may be out.

The list of those who have sought to overthrow the will of the people includes 17 attorneys general and 126 members of Congress, more than half of the GOP caucus. Without offering any evidence of fraud, these insurgents signed an absurd brought by the Texas that sought to overturn election in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and hand the election over to President Trump.
