America after Trump: "Dystopian science fiction ... is actually happening"
Donald Trump's regime continues to reveal its "secrets." But these are largely confirmations of what was both publicly and privately known for years about Trump and his allies' perfidious and despicable conduct, disregard for human life, and scheming against American democracy.
New reporting has confirmed what was long predicted: Trump was willing to do anything to stay in power after being defeated in the 2020 election, up to and including ordering the U.S. military to turn against the American people.
As detailed in the new book "I Alone Can Fix It" by Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, along other high-ranking military leaders, feared Trump as a potential Hitler and saw the potential for a "Reichstag fire" incident. Milley reportedly expressed concern in private that Trump would command his neofascist followers, both within and outside the government, to support a coup attempt and otherwise create chaos and violence.
Perhaps most worrisome, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others at the highest levels of government were concerned that Donald Trump would use nuclear weapons in an act of spite, perhaps to create a global disaster that would permit him to remain in power indefinitely.
What a narcissist POS, to ever even consider using atomic weapons as a means to stay in power...Pres. Biden should be well aware of this, and he should be taking every step to prevent rump from ever running ever for any elected office, it would literally save millions of lives. Isn't it time to consider the cost of leaving rump as be, vs. charging him w/ the numerous crimes of which he's guilty of, tax evasion, etc.? I've long heard about the Southern District of New York blah blah blah, and then nothing. What happened? Did Barr sabotage these federal efforts on tax avoidance on the part of rump? Where's the state of NY too, on these tax schemes?
