Exposing the Republicans’ excuses for not convicting Trump


In NCR, Michael Sean Winters offers a column on the impeachment trial. In part, he says “Persons in positions of responsibility must hold themselves responsible, or the democracy will collapse. Ethics laws can help create an environment, but as conservatives used to remind us, without personal virtue by those in power, the whole system will come crumbling down. If someone is incapable of holding himself responsible, the rest of the country must find ways to hold him responsible. Trump should be held to a higher standard than the guy with the viking helmet.”
