This looks more like the last stage of a coup. Consolidating power in himself by stacking the courts as his puppets, discrediting belief in the truth by attacking the press as fake and rigging elections with voter suppression. Spreading propaganda and lies while facilitating Russian-aided disinformation on social media. Trying to shut down the postal service which means shutting down voting by mail. Lastly, raising a fascist, well armed militia to stand against his political enemies. The threat to our democracy couldn't be more urgent.

When Will The FBI, Or William Barr, Make It's Move To Subvert Trump's Impeachment Trial? Today?
Why do Republicans appear to be playing an all-in, "Doomsday" game. Is there no tomorrow, Mitch?

Under enormous pressure from competing interests over the impeachment trial, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell finds himself between the proverbial rock and the hard place.
Before you brush this topic off as irrelevant, you might want to consider how often it comes back into political discussions along with the lie that it was a war resolution rather than a peace resolution.
