    ... It is fucking amazing to me that we have these facts and still are not arresting Trump and his cronies for treason. If they are able to get away with these actions with no consequences other...

    Trump directly asked the Justice Department nine times to undermine the election result, and his chief of staff Mark Meadows broke administration policy by pressuring a Justice Department lawyer to investigate claims of election fraud, according to the report, which is based on witness interviews of top former Justice Department officials.

    ...

    "First phase, Trump goes to court. Loses every lawsuit, which claims there was voter fraud in the election. Next, he decides he has to take over the Department of Justice and the attorney general, and have the attorney general push this narrative on to the states to tell them to stop from sending in their Electoral College vote totals. When that failed -- and our report goes into graphic detail of the efforts that were made -- the third step was to turn the mob loose on the Capitol the day we were counting the ballots," Durbin said, referring to the January 6 riot.

    It is fucking amazing to me that we have these facts and still are not arresting Trump and his cronies for treason. If they are able to get away with these actions with no consequences other than a brief second impeachment than the far-right Republican party will absolutely pull this again and if they have a bit more competence they could be successful.

      And in fact, in some states they control, they've already passed laws that will make it easier to pull off in the future.
