Donald Trump's lies turned violent -- he must be removed from office immediately

Lies take on a life of their own. That life, Americans discovered Wednesday, can be incredibly violent.

Domestic terrorists spurred on by lies attacked our nation's capital. The attempted insurrection was the culmination of a consistent strategy by President Donald Trump and his allies to undermine U.S. democracy and claim an election victory they did not win.

Their scheme has for two months been deceptively simple: Make spurious, conspiracy-laden claims of election fraud. Spread these falsehoods across the conservative media sphere. Then argue for yet another recount, lawsuit, or intervention to assuage constituents' inflamed "concerns."

No wonder that in the last moments before Joe Biden would be formally declared president-elect, chaos erupted.
