Op ed on why Trump must face justice

Hard to believe this was written by the husband of CNP member Kellyanne “Alternative Fact” Conway, one of the smartest and most brazen of Trump’s well-connected inner circle. George Conway, a Federalist Society member who was outspoken in the conservative resistance to his wife’s boss, is also a very smart lawyer who makes a case today in the Washington Post that’s impossible to refute. Using facts…

He quotes with approval Merrick Garland’s January 5th words to DOJ workers (and the rest of the world) :

Above all, he pledged that the Justice Department has “no higher priority” and would do “whatever it takes for justice to be done — consistent with the facts and the law.” Most important, he made clear that “the Justice Department remains committed to holding all January 6th perpetrators, at any level, accountable under law — whether they were present that day or were otherwise criminally responsible for the assault on our democracy.” (Emphasis mine.)

He also quotes fucking Mitch McConnell, lines Mitch delivered after again orchestrating Trump’s impeachment acquittal, the first time by preventing an actual trial in the Senate, the second on an absurd technicality:

“We have a criminal justice system in this country,” McConnell said. “President Trump is still liable for everything he did while he was in office,” McConnell added. “He didn’t get away with anything yet. Yet.”
