Each of these is of the highest importance to the country, even if many Americans are unlikely to be swayed by them. Every president in our nation’s history has honored the constitutional duty to relinquish power and allow the peaceful transfer of executive authority – every president that is, until Donald Trump. The existential danger that burst into deadly mob violence on January 6 has not been laid to rest, it is ongoing. The country as a whole must reckon with and acknowledge what a sitting president perpetrated and the existential harm he brought on this country with his reckless, abhorrent, and illegal actions. Thus, there should be no doubt in anybody’s mind that he has committed treason against the United States, for which he must be charged and face his day in court.
