The Indictment

Donald Trump has finally been indicted. My guess is that this is just the beginning and that many more indictments will follow. They will include charges for lying to federal investigators, stealing classified documents, and inciting mob action on January 6, 2021. Then there’s a string of offenses that regularly appear on the internet that may not be indictable: encouraging Russian interference in our elections, threatening Ukraine to dig up dirt on political enemies, cozying up to Kim Jung Un, abandoning our closest allies, defunding the Post Office, proposing $30 billion in cuts to Social Security, caging migrant children at the border, attacking freedom of the press, building a racist border wall, threatening officials to rig the 2020 election, imposing a transgender military ban, denying the severity of COVID-19, and telling 30,573 lies while president and another 503 as he barnstormed across the country in a desperate effort to win reelection.

What continues to amaze me is that there are still millions of Americans who support Donald Trump. I can only conclude that they agree with his racist views and want to transform the U.S. into a plutocracy. I am comforted that not all Republicans favor Trump, and that Democrats outnumber Republicans. I am confident that over time we will defeat Trump and maybe even incarcerate him. The country will be better off when he is permanently taken out of the running.
