The Grim Reality

This comment in an opinion column caught my eye: “But the more impressive the Democrats’ case is, the more depressing the reality becomes.” This perfectly captures the situation. The reality is the perfidy of Republican denial of the gravity of the crimes committed by Trump and his collaborators. The response of Republican senators planning to acquit Trump is to sink to ever lower moral depths in order to support him no matter how much overwhelming  evidence against him mounts up.
