Lock Them Up

In 2017, after watching Donald Trump and his band of inept lackeys commit treason against the United States of America, I wrote a Letter to the Editor expressing the view that this administration should be brought to justice. On January 15, 2020, the House of Representatives voted to send Articles of Impeachment against the disgraced Donald Trump to the Senate.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi skillfully guided two articles, Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress, through the House and successfully delivered them to the Senate. While the “wheels of justice” grind slowly, they do move forward.

I closed my 2017 letter with the following:

The name of Benedict Arnold, in American history, will always be synonymous with treachery. The only change to his infamous status is the inclusion, in the Halls of Treason, of the names: Donald Trump, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Rudy Guiliani, the Kushners — or, as they are collectively known, “Putin’s Boys.”

While the stench of Donald Trump might one day dissipate from the hallowed halls of Washington, D.C., the stain on our national honor, caused by Donald Trump, will never go away.

“Lock them up!”
