“Liz Cheney was addressing her fellow Republicans. But more than that, she was speaking to posterity. ‘I say this to my Republican colleagues who are defending the indefensible,’ she said at Thursday night’s opening hearing of the Jan. 6 House select committee. ‘There will come a day when Donald Trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain.’ … It’s beyond the Jan. 6 committee’s mandate to explain how so many people who began with honorable instincts ultimately retreated to join Trump. And there is probably no convincing them, nor the tens of millions they have deceived, to correct course now. But the committee’s work gives hope that the dishonorable will, at least, earn history’s rebuke.” (06/09/22)
