I think it’s time to decide whether we’re going to refrain from doing things because Trumpists will kill people and their GOP fluffers and apologists will shrug, because the list of things we can’t do under that approach is expanding. https://t.co/qj2XKCR9NK

As the House managers made clear, Donald Trump sought to undermine, then reverse, the election, and, when he ran out of options, he proved willing to see the lives of his own Vice-President and members of Congress endangered so that he might retain power. https://t.co/M0QcZmuPDx
