The verdict is in.

Donald Trump (the unhinged decade-long cult leader of the current Republican Party and its likely presidential candidate in a few months) is a convicted felon, found guilty on all 34 counts in a trial that is but one of four that he faces and would already have been tried on had his infiltration of our justice system not slowed the process this long.
For anyone who truly loves this nation and respects the rule of Law, it is not a day of celebration or strident “I told you so’s,” but a moment to mark with profound sadness how deeply, perhaps irreparably wounded we are as a collective to have ever allowed someone so bereft of character to ascend to the highest seat of power in the world.

And for someone like myself, who has spent the last eight years trying to alert people here to the dangers and to appeal to their humanity and to invite their better angels and to ask them to step across lines of politics and religion in order to prevent a national disaster — it is simply the grievous, though expected outcome.

Good people saw this coming. For anyone not completely addled by tribalism, this was always going to play out this way.
