For the first time in American history, the leading candidate to defeat the incumbent president has been indicted by the incumbent’s Justice Department. This moment portends a massive change in the norms of this nation that all Americans who care about the neutral rule of law should pay close attention to.
Trump has already been indicted by a New York grand jury for a different state matter, but a federal indictment from the Department of Justice overseen by President Joe Biden, an opposing political opponent, is unprecedented ground for U.S. politics.
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, called the legal proceedings “election interference.” “A corrupt Biden Justice Department indictment of Trump could undo our Republic,” he wrote on Twitter.

On “Vermont Edition,” a radio show associated with Vermont Public, VT GOP Chair Paul Dame on Monday discussed reactions to the indictment against former president Donal Trump.
“We are about to show you surveillance footage from inside the United States Capitol. The images you will see were recorded 26 months ago today on January 6th, 2021. Until now, politicians have kept this tape hidden from the public. There is no legitimate justification for that and there never has been.”
Twitter executives, including former head of legal, policy and trust Vijaya Gadde, reinterpreted then-President Donald Trump’s final Jan. 8, 2021, tweets to overrule the initial finding of the site’s safety team that they were not in violation of the rules, according to internal messages published by journalist Bari Weiss Monday.
There are important reasons why almost half the voters supported Trump in 2016 and 2020 and why so many remain loyal to him today. We ignore those reasons and those votes democratically cast at our own peril and, yes, at the peril of democracy.
VTGOP leaders must recognize the largest voting block in Vermont is not Republicans or Democrats or Progressives. It is those who consider themselves independents. If VTGOP leaders move to rigid right-wing idealogues for comfort, we lose that block.
