I witnessed this in real time. You can draw a bright line between establishment of FoxNews and erosion of trust in the institutions that make us a nation

In 1790 the largest state had 10x the pop of the smallest. Today the largest has 67x the pop of the smallest.
Actually they did envision it, which is why they created both institutions.

"The disclosures have produced the clearest picture yet of an unprecedented attempt to subvert the traditional American democratic process, with a president who had lost at the ballot box planning to march with an armed crowd to the Capitol to block the transfer of power"

"Trump had every intention of joining a mob of supporters he knew to be armed and dangerous... Any doubts about what was really going through his mind...seemed to have been eviscerated by recent testimony to the House committee,'' writes @peterbakernyt nytimes.com/2022/07/03/us/po…

Willful blindness can be used to prove knowledge of a fact (as in, "I lost the election"), not criminal intent. But evidence of knowledge can also provide circumstantial evidence of intent. @gtconway3d and I discuss. washingtonpost.com/opinions/…

Sure, there are risks to prosecuting a former president. But there are bigger risks to treating presidents as above the law. And there are even graver risks to treating a president as above the law when they engage in a criminal conspiracy to hold on to power illegitimately.

Many Republican running for positions of control over elections are quite literally campaigning on a vow to break their oaths of office, by treating future losses as non-binding. This insurrectionist drift has become something akin to a social movement: washingtonpost.com/opinions/…

We need pro-democracy Republicans who honor certain baseline principles: * Election losses are binding * Voters deserve the truth about democratic outcomes * Insurrectionism must be fundamentally renounced This has gotten Liz Cheney excommunicated: washingtonpost.com/opinions/…
