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