“Except the Huge Lie is totally refuted, we will anticipate extra makes an attempt to subvert the constitutional order from Trump’s supporters,” writes Hill, who has been learning authoritarian regimes for 3 a long time. “If we’re to revive democratic norms and ensure this doesn’t occur once more, these congressional Republicans must take private accountability for his or her actions in assist of Trump’s coup try.
