"Just this week, it's been revealed that:
Trump had blueprints that the Republicans tried to use to prevent Congress from certifying President Joe Biden's clear and genuine victory, in the form of a memo that laid out a plan for then-Vice President Mike Pence to thwart Biden's Electoral College triumph.
The memo was reported in the new book "Peril," by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, and was later obtained by CNN.
Trump's own campaign staff knew that outlandish claims of fraud made by the then-President's lawyers were utterly false, according to a report in The New York Times. But they did nothing to stop his dangerous allegations.
Trump sent a letter full of false information to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, asking him to start the process of decertifying the 2020 election. "Peril" also contains a passage that shows Trump cared little for truth, what voters decided in November or bedrock constitutional values -- but agonized about his reputation and mused that accepting defeat would brand him as one of history's losers.
This growing paper trail, which is likely to be of intense interest to the House select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection, appears to prove Trump's intent to stay in power illegally. The record is beginning to add up to an extraordinary indictment of the ex-President's abuses of power and one of the darkest moments in US history."
None of this seems to matter to Trump's cultists. A brief look at the pro-Trump news sites and blogs shows that none of his cultists are reporting on these horrifying revelations.
This is the real danger to our republic: Trump's cultists who continue to swallow his lies and fantasies and his attempts to illegally install himself for a second term.
The CNN report is a good reminder of what January 6 was -- a widespread, concerted attempt by the GOP, acting not as a few rogues but as a single entity, to overthrow the United States' government in service to their mad king. Yet not a damn single one of them has ever been charged with sedition.
At least a third of Americans believe that Trump was cheated out of being re-elected despite there being absolutely no proof those misguided believers can produce that shows a massive level of voter fraud.
Even sixty plus lawsuits (most of which were simply thrown out), as well as the fact that the SCOTUS agreed that there was no voter fraud has dissuaded Trump's cultists from the lie that the election was stolen. Yet the idea that Trump is still the actual president persists in his and their minds.
The Trumpublican Party has done little to nothing to push back against these fantasies, and even today it continues to support the Big Lie that Trump was cheated.
Democracy in the United States is doomed!
