The impeachment of Trump should also be approached as “a marathon, not a sprint.” As Trump has not gone quietly, and now as Republican politicians cower around him, a trial on February 8 would merely end in failure. Rather, the trial should be postponed and a more thorough impeachment INVESTIGATION should uncover the deeper connections the Trump administration had in the ... coup attempt? Hopefully as Trump is defeated politically and has to focus on his legal and financial problems (all of which might not happen for months), his hold over the Republican Party will lessen and he will be less able to exacerbate the racial and other divisions in our country. I explore this approach towards impeachment more fully in The War After the Election [].
