The pundits kept telling us that Saturday’s disappointing acquittal was inevitable, but that’s not really true. If just 10 additional Republicans had cared more about our country than they did about their political careers, we’d be celebrating the return of justice to our nation.
Last week DemCast writers had a lot to say about the impeachment trial. From a veteran who knows his oath is sacred, to an enlightening discussion of the constitutionality of the trial, to the travails of brooding 1930s and ’40s star John Garfield, to a wholesale rebuke of the media, we shared a wide range of views and information. We also featured a poignant reminder that Covid-19 is still with us. We hope you will take some time to read our articles and put the last week in perspective.
We also would be remiss if we did not focus on the silver linings in the week. Congress can now move forward with President Biden’s agenda. DemCast has joined with three other organizations to form the KarmaCrew, which will focus on defeating the 43 senators who voted for acquittal in their next elections. And hopefully the evidence, videos and speeches from the last week will help ensure that the political career of the former president will come to a humiliating end.
