Robert Reich: Trump's impeachment shows US officials at their best and his allies at their worst

Trump has surrounded himself not with the best and most serious but with the worst and most dangerous: thugs, liars and white supremacists.

And yet in recent weeks, others in the Trump administration have shown themselves to be among the best and most honorable public servants in America, though Trump doesn’t see them that way.
----
The contrast could not be starker. On one side are dedicated public servants seeking to protect America. On the other side are Trump and his thugs, seeking to protect Trump.
----
Those who put loyalty to Trump above their duty to the United States are contemptible. Even if they don’t end up in prison like other Trump toadies, they have dishonored themselves and the nation.

But those who have devoted their lives to this country and are now risking everything by telling the truth are among America’s best. They deserve our deepest gratitude.

The contrast could NOT be starker. And they know it the smug, condescending, contemptuous, insincere, utterly devoid of self-respect wankers that they are, they just don't care cause white supremacist power plays

3. It would be interesting if one were a time traveler.

Then we could read about what the reputable historians have to say about the time we are now living in.

4. This and other statements to the very same effect

need to be plastered everywhere across America — in every newspaper, magazine and news-site on the web.

Editorials in The Guardian are nice but have minor effect as most of it’s readers belong to the choir.

I was impressed with the student protest at yesterday’s Harvard game. The issue they were protesting wasn’t tRump and his traitorous enablers and henchmen. But it was indeed the greatest existential threat facing our nation and mankind today. The young have the energy and passion as well as the most to gain from organized active protest and resistance. They are my source of optimism. We need their passion and energy on our side to defeat the march of the white supremacist, authoritarian fascism across our nation that tRump and his supporters represent.
