Hold Trump accountable

How can the Republican Party claim to be the Blue Lives Matter party?

House Impeachment videos put the hypocrisy of claiming Blue Lives Matter on full display for the entire world to see. “Trump’s Militia” was seen brutalizing D.C. and Capitol Police, the Senate’s very own squad of Blue Lives, on Jan. 6.

In all, 140 officers were injured: one officer suffered brain damage; another was blinded. One brave officer was bludgeoned to death by the violent mob; two others took their own lives days after the insurrection.

How can Republican Senators read Trump’s Tweets, listen to recordings of his endlessly repeated Big Lie of a “stolen election,” his incessant urging for supporters to “take back our country” and NOT make the connection between his words and the insurrection on Jan. 6?

General John Kelly and Governor Chris Christie, former members of Trump’s inner circle, saw the indisputable connection and publicly called Trump out for inciting the insurrection.

Republican Senators say they care about the Capitol Police, and all men and women in uniform, but their actions speak louder than words. What they really care about is preserving their Senate seats and protecting their standing with Donald Trump, who assembled the mob and light the match that caused the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Failure to hold Donald Trump accountable invites future attacks on the peaceful transfer of power–and on the men and women in uniform who take the brunt of this kind of political violence!
