Letter: The Republican reckoning

To the Editor:

The facts of the impeachment hearings into the most lawless, corrupt and anti-constitutional president in American history will be witnessed with live congressional testimonies by America and the world and will be a reckoning for the Republican Party. 

The world is watching as traitors to their constitutional oath of office in Donald Trump and his GOP co-conspirators are destroying our country, to Vladimir Putin’s delight, by turning America into Russia West. A lawless, fascist kakistocracy of kleptocrats, oligarchs and plutocrats protected and defended by their bought and paid for shills in the Republican Party.

This corruption is creeping like MAGAts into every crevice of our government and controlled by America’s fascist oligarchs in the Koch-Mercer-Devos cabal of sociopathic billionaires who own our White House, Cabinet, administration, Congress and Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, the most corrupt attorney general in history is sneaking around the globe trying to “dig up dirt” on the same patriotic National Security Agency and intelligence communities which defend our nation and Constitution from malicious adversaries both foreign and domestic.

The Republican sycophants in Congress, along with their constituents brainwashed by Fox News and the right-wing propaganda machine, are supporting and defending a literal treasonous felon who sides with authoritarian despots while alienating our allies.

He uses the power of the Oval Office to bribe and extort other leaders for his own political and financial gain. He obstructs justice and Congress and is known in court filings as “Individual One” in the election fraud his own attorney is serving time for. 

As the corruption of the Trump crime syndicate masquerading as our federal government comes to light in these impeachment hearings, Republicans and their voters will face a reckoning and reconciliation.

How long will they defend this lifelong pathological liar, conman, fraud and serial abuser debasing our nation, democracy and rule of law? And how long will they sacrifice their own moral, ethical, legal, fiscal, constitutional and Christian values in depraved defense of this cretin and pariah destroying America? 

Only time will tell.
