The IMMEDIATE crisis is over. The forces that swept Trump to power still exist in American democracy, and the powers he misused as President still remain to be abused by a reincarnation of him. There is a need to fully investigate what happened on January 6, which is why impeachment should be done methodically. There is also a need to pressure Congress to curb the powers it has ceded to the executive branch so that a clearer line is drawn regarding presidential limits and what Congress’s rights to investigate them are. The Pledge to Safeguard the Constitution [] petitions Congress to restrict presidential power in very targeted but critical areas which pose a threat to our democratic institutions so that even if there is a return of somebody like Donald Trump, he or she will not have access to the kinds of powers Trump used to undermine them.
