Opinion | Trump and the Complicit Republicans

To the Editor:

Re “To Survive, Republicans Must Impeach,” by Bret Stephens (column, Jan. 12):

They must have missed the “6MWE” (“Six Million Weren’t Enough”) and “Camp Auschwitz” shirts worn by some in the mob who stormed the Capitol. Maybe they didn’t know that the seditionists built gallows on the grounds and carried plastic handcuffs, or that five died in the violent attacks.

For those such as Kevin McCarthy, the most powerful Republican in the House of Representatives, who now call for unity, that ship has sailed. You aided and abetted the sedition, and then, after witnessing the demolition, about 140 of you still voted to put your stamp of approval on it.

President Trump must be removed from office ASAP. Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz and other accessories to the crime should be censured and considered persona non grata by their party.

If we are to heal as a country, those in office who supported a rogue president above their country should be shamed. If we are to recover, we must admit that this is who we are now. It will take a reckoning to recover and to become the country we hope to be.
