Commentators and analysts have feared a civil war in the United States for two years. Since Trump shouts that the Democrats stole the election from him and that Joe Biden is not the rightful President of the United States.
He himself launched hostilities by inciting his supporters to invade the Capitol to prevent his vice-president, Mike Pence, from confirming his electoral defeat before Congress.
Republicans are getting ready
Republican candidates in the midterm elections are following suit by exciting their voters with election ads in which they are seen, assault rifles in hand, in combat gear, claiming that they are preparing to face their Democratic enemies. , liberals and socialists. The whole planet if necessary.
In one video, a trumped-up candidate in Ohio, obese and bearded with a sinister expression, walks through ruins with his AR-15 ready to open fire. He tells his constituents that the United States must be restored to its rightful place. His slogan: “Make America Dominant Again”. He won the Republican nomination.
In Missouri, another Trumpian primary candidate swears, assault rifle in hand, to hunt down RINOs (Republican In Name Only), Republicans who oppose Trump. The war is on!
The Republican Party has transformed into a neofascist formation with its armed phalanxes like the Proud Boys and other militias.
The noose is tightening on Trump
The Attorney General, the indolent Merrick Garland, finally decided to act. He no longer fears that prosecuting Trump will appear “political.” He must be much more concerned now about the message it would send if he didn't charge him.
The federal investigation is heading toward charges of inciting a riot or inciting an insurrection against Trump. After the recent revelations before the Jan. 6 commission, the facts are unmistakable about the pivotal role he played in the unrest on Capitol Hill.
The Wall Street Journal also reports that the two main advisers to Vice President Mike Pence are cooperating with federal prosecutors. They explained to a Grand Jury Trump's illegal moves to nullify the 2020 election results.
Set fire to the powder
It should therefore soon be Trump's turn to receive a subpoena. He will refuse to obey the subpoena like his co-conspirator Steve Bannon did. The temptation will be strong to barricade themselves at Mar-e-Lago if the FBI tries to arrest him.
Do you think Trump would be reluctant to appeal to his supporters and organized militias in more than 40 states to come to his defense? It could also encourage them to occupy symbolic or strategic US government locations. Far-right militias, often made up of ex-soldiers and police officers, have the stated goal of resisting the “tyranny” of the federal state.
His candidacy for the 2024 presidential elections will further confuse the issue by complicating the criminal proceedings against him.
Things are looking bad for Trump and the United States.
