Strange Times

What a terrible period in our country’s history this is. It’s not just Trump. His entire Administration is awash with corruption, abetted by right wing propagandistic media and by Republican members of Congress, just about every one of whom has shown no respect for truth or desire to preserve our democracy. Harvard Constitutional law professor Lawrence Tribe, quoted by Jennifer Rubin: “The massive White House coverup of Trump’s abuse of power vis-a-vis Ukraine & Biden, including evidence of concealment, is now clearly documented. Bill Barr is up to his eyebrows in the criminal conspiracy. He’s Trump’s John Mitchell. Mitchell ended up in prison. It’s all unraveling.” Unravelling. Rampant criminality exposed to public view. But these are strange times. I don’t feel at all sure that truth and justice will prevail.
