Living in a time when the president all but advertises he will pardon those who protect and lie for him is bizarre. The America that I grew up in was not going to put up with liars or con-men in the highest office in the land. Today we have entire political parties full of people who seem to expect something amazing if they allow corruption, lies, and criminality to dominate the land. In Kentucky the departing Republican governor (Matt Bevin) pardoned hundreds (including murderers) on his whim and gave us a picture of what could happen on a national scale at the end of the current administration. I hope that Americans stop playing games for perceived advantage and choose truth and morality over perceived expediency. The impeachment of Trump must be taken seriously by the senate for the sake of our republic.
