There is only one way to restore the confidence of a cynical and traumatized majority in the rule of law and the Department of Justice, and that is to drain the GOP swamp, to hold Trump accountable for his many crimes, and – to quote Gladiator– “unleash hell” on its criminal allies and its facilitators.
Just yesterday, Donald Trump returned to face his worshiping cult at CPAC’s annual conference and continued to promote the big lie that he won the 2020 election, a lie that inspired a violent insurgency that killed five. people. This dangerous and reckless behavior, backed by the GOP and its media propagandists, will only continue without legal consequences.
“The Biden administration must bring what I call a ‘season of calculation’ for the corruption and grievance that we have suffered over the past four years,” lawyer Katie Phang told me. Trump and his facilitators are “the common denominator,” she said behind the insurgency, extortion threats against Georgia’s secretary of state, the kidnapping and caging of children at the border, the multiple violations of the emoluments clause, and the lies and incompetence that have led to thousands of COVID deaths.
