The storm might be here.

This is a must-read - if you care about the dangers to our democracy being manufactured hourly by Trumpist hoodlums. You will see why that label includes the ex-president and the right-wing members of congress.

Luke Mogelson chronicled the Jan 6 insurrection for the New Yorker in Among the Insurrectionists The Capitol was breached by Trump supporters who had been declaring, at rally after rally, that they would go to violent lengths to keep the President in power. A chronicle of an attack foretold.

For example:

… When Chris Krebs, a Trump appointee in charge of national cybersecurity, deemed the election “the most secure in American history,” the President fired him. Joe diGenova, Trump’s attorney, then said that Krebs “should be drawn and quartered—taken out at dawn and shot.”
