Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:

After telling the mob that he would be walking to the Capitol Building with them, the great leader of the MAGA movement led from behind as he speedily returned to the White House to watch the storming of the Capitol on TV. He knew his mob would do his bidding no matter what he asked of them, and they did.

They placed their trust in one man who told them only he could fix everything — only he could make America great again. They apparently did not know enough of history to understand that blind loyalty to one self-styled strongman had destroyed great nations and democracies in the past and could destroy ours today.

Trump was impeached by those who know history and who predicted that if the Senate did not find Trump guilty, this president would engage in actions even worse than those in the Articles of Impeachment they had presented. The Republican Senate staged a sham trial where evidence was not admitted and witnesses were not heard. Republicans found Trump not guilty. That day the Republican Party and Republican Senate majority emboldened the Republican mob and enabled the storming of our U.S. Capitol building, the terrorizing of our duly elected representatives and the injury and deaths of Americans.

Once again Democrats are doing their part through constitutional means to hold this president accountable and save our democracy. Once again Republicans through blind loyalty or partisan self-interest show signs they will obstruct all efforts to hold this president accountable. If they do so, they will once again embolden him and his mob and enable them to complete the dismemberment and destruction of our nation and our government.
