“The Jan. 6 Committee hearing Thursday night broke new and terrifying ground that started to show with pictures, videos, testimony, and an indisputable narrative how close we were to an American coup d’etat. They began to demonstrate how the occupation of the U.S. Capitol was not a spontaneous protest as some Republicans continue to claim, but a methodical and meticulous plan to ensure President Trump would hold on to power by any means necessary. It should give all Americans nightmares. It should also mobilize sensible voters — if they care about democracy — to kick Republicans who supported Trump’s Big Lie out of office, and call upon the Department of Justice to hold Trump and his cohorts to account.” (06/10/22)
