Trump wants retribution. That’s dangerous, unlawful and un-American.

“Reasonable people can differ about the wisdom of prosecuting Donald Trump. Reasonable people can differ about the justice of the guilty verdict in the Manhattan hush money case against the former president. But we are not dealing with reasonable people in the Trump-fueled reaction to his conviction on 34 felony counts. We are dealing with dangerous people — and a dangerous assault on the rule of law in the call for state-level officials to launch revenge prosecutions and the threat of federally directed retribution against President Biden and other Democrats if Trump returns to power. This is so unhinged it is tempting to ignore it as overheated bloviating. That would be a mistake.” (06/05/24)
