We heard this week powerful testimony shining new light on Trump’s ruthless and unrestrained assault on our country’s election process and democracy. Everyone who spoke at the hearing was compelling and convincing. Congressman Raskin’s summation at the hearing’s end was brilliant.
These hearings have gone beyond my expectation and, likely, the expectations of millions of viewers. I have to think the democratic sensibilities of tens of millions have been heightened and the danger of authortiarian-fascistic rule is more palpably felt. When combined with the Court’s rulings in June – the overturning of Roe v.Wade, first of all – it is hard not to think – and some recent polling suggests so – that the election landscape is shifting.
