25. That depends on what comes out in these next weeks and months.

Yes, Americans are famous for having short attention spans and being easily distracted.

But if there is a drip drip drip of damning revelations this might turn the tide.

For instance--if the NSA releases a recording of Trump talking to "patriots" and encouraging violence--even hinting or openly suggesting they kill Speaker Pelosi and VP Pence--public reaction would be furious. If there is solid evidence that GOP representatives plotted with the mob, this would also be damning--not only to Trump but to the entire GOP.

Such revelations--released to the public at strategic times--would help pass the Biden agenda, providing a groundswell of support for Democrats and loathing for Republicans. We haven't even seen the worst of the videos. We haven't heard testimony from Capitol Police. All of this would be part of the mix.

There might also be more articles of impeachment to add to the one article already approved.

I have no problem contrasting the steady stream of revelations damning to the GOP with a Biden administration and Democratic House and Senate passing a flurry of measures to deal with the pandemic and the collapsed economy.

A Congress working full time on repairing the damage--passing a new voting rights act and securing our elections infrastructure for starters--is essential. Once that happens we can have a full blown trial with witnesses, including Trump insiders who can testify to the man's raging thirst for absolute power.
