'This isn’t what I thought  2months ago, when the inquiry began. I argued that the evidence fell short of the standards of a prosecutable criminal act. But the congressional testimonies make clear that the president’s highest crime isn’t what he tried to do to, or with, Ukraine. It's what he is doing to us:  where channels of formal authority are disconnected from the real centers of power by legal fixers as shadow cabinet members -- off-stage figures who yield outsized influence and facilitate foreign interference; extortion as foreign policy; the use of political office as a shield against criminal prosecution & as a vehicle for  enrichment. And the creating of fictional narratives & conspiracy theories as fact -- to the enduring shame of the GOP!  The one way to stop this is to make every effort to remove Trump from office. It shouldn’t have to wait a year.'

This is true: " This is more than a high crime. It's a clear and present danger to our security, institutions, and moral hygiene." The testimony is slowly unfolding which is proving that President Trumputin orchestrated, through his aides, a monstrous bribery/extortion scandal which would also be considered treason if we had been waging a war declared by Congress against Russia.

"The person who is both the principal consumer and purveyor of those falsehoods is the president of the United States, just as he has been a purveyor of so many other conspiracy theories."

"Even now, this should astound us." It doesn't, because we've been living in a country undergoing its own dismal process of Ukrainianization: of treating fictions as facts; and propaganda as journalism; and political opponents as criminals; and political offices as business ventures; and personal relatives as diplomatic representatives; and legal fixers as shadow cabinet members; and extortion as foreign policy; and toadyism as patriotism; and fellow citizens as "human scum"; and mortal enemies as long-lost friends and then acting as if all this is perfectly normal."

Last night I watched the documentary on Netflix about the Ukraine uprising when the Ukrainian trump allied with Putin instead of the EU, and the people rose up and violently forced him to back down, at the cost of many lives.

The Ukrainians knew it was a do or die moment in their history.

Do Americans realize that now? Not even close. They're too concerned with who 'The Masked Singer' is.

If trump is not removed and we are re-trumped in 2020, which is extremely possible, this country is finished. Done.
