22. If this is true

If this is true… when is somebody going to do something about it?

I'm afraid Trump has put his finger on the fatal flaw in our Constitution. There's nothing in it about do overs, removal from office for anything other than incredible disability or via impeachment. When all branches of government are in the hands of a single party you no longer even have a functioning oligarchy. What you have is some strange version of a tyrranucsl Republic. We now resemble Kazakhstan more than we resemble what the founding fathers really had in mind. They intended our nation to be a highly functioning oligarchy where competing interests made sure that one party could not dominate the other. Because the Supreme Court was co-opted decades ago we now have a situation where the rules have been rewritten in the Republicans favor over and over and over again. It is hard to imagine anything happening based on what the FBI now knows happened.
