America can be proud of the nine member House Prosecution in the Second Donald Trump Impeachment Trial.
Watching their presentation evokes great emotions, at the tragedy of what happened on January 6, 2021.
January 6, the day of the Capitol Insurrection, will always be remembered in the same vein as September 11, 2001; December 7, 1941; and November 22, 1963, as days of mourning.
Jamie Raskin, the leader of the nine prosecutors, made every decent American proud, but the other eight prosecutors also demonstrated how decent and patriotic they are, and they will be well remembered in the long run of history.
The fact that one extra Republican, Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, joined five other Republicans in legitimizing the trial, was a good development, but eleven more Republicans need to join the six (including Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania) to convict Donald Trump, and prevent him ever running again for public office.
If the Republicans were a decent group, which they are not, that would happen, but is highly unlikely to occur!
We are now into the second day of tumult and turmoil nationally since Donald Trump was declared the winner of the Electoral College at 3 pm on Wednesday.
Anti Trump demonstrations have erupted all over the nation, and nothing like this has ever happened before.
Disillusioned and disgusted millions of people are having great trouble dealing with what seems to them to be the greatest tragedy to hit the nation since September 11, 2001 and November 22, 1963.
Some think that possibly the Electoral College members can be convinced to ignore the electoral vote and choose Hillary Clinton, since she won the national popular vote by about 250,000 votes and still counting, since individual electors can cast their vote in mid December in secret in each state capital.
But to change the entire result of the Electoral College by use of “faithless electors” would be unprecedented, although if it happened, there would be no way to change the secret vote, which would be announced in a joint session of Congress, presided over by Vice President Joe Biden in the early days of January.
One could say that this is already a constitutional crisis, as possibly there will be no peace and stability as the people of America rise up and demand that the popular vote alone should elect our President, despite the Electoral College being set up by the Founding Fathers at the Constitutional Convention.
