Many fear that Trump has forever damaged what remains of our collective commitment to the rule of law*
We were pretty sure Ford did that when he pardoned Nixon.
And yet Trump lost 60 cases and the election several times (right up to January 6th) and the rioters he incited are going to jail. I’d say the commitment to the rule of law is still pretty sound.
The article lists a lot of crimes Trump can be charged with. Whether he can be proven guilty is another matter. “Lock ‘im up!” is not a better argument because “we” make it.
