The Trump Impeachment Trial

Headline: “Poll finds narrow majority of Americans favor convicting Trump”

A “narrow majority” instead of an “overwhelming majority” lays bare the truth of Stacey Abrams assertion in a Washington Post op-ed this morning that American democracy “faced a near-death experience.” The goal of those prosecuting Trump in the impeachment trial this week should be to illuminate the gravity of Trump’s moral depravity and educate the populace as to the threat that he and his enablers posed and still pose to our country –– to enlighten a great many more people that it is right, just, and important to convict Trump and, no less important, of the rightness of subsequent criminal prosecution.
