Opinion: The only way Republicans can lead again

November 22, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Republicans in Congress have had the chance to stop the recklesness of Donald Trump's presidency, writes CNN political analyst Julian Zelizer. Instead, the party has let Trump's presidential power run amok and they're the only ones capable of stopping him, Zelizer argues.

So now President Trump is attempting to convince state legislatures to overthrow the results.

With the exception of Sen. Mitt Romney, who voted to convict Trump, the rest of the party stood by the President.

By now it should be clear that the only lesson President Trump learned from the impeachment process was that almost every elected Republican would support him regardless of what he did.

President Trump has exposed a party that is willing to abandon all guardrails in its effort to preserve the ability to push through court picks, deregulation and tax cuts.

There is no going back to normal after what we have seen and there can't be Republicans who say that the party itself is fundamentally different from what President Trump offered the nation.

On Friday, the state's Republican governor, Brian Kemp signed the paperwork that officially grants the state's 16 electoral votes to President-elect Joe Biden.

And following their meeting with the President Friday, a group of seven Michigan Republicans announced that they learned nothing that would alter the election outcome, meaning Biden beat Trump.

The party needs to acknowledge the Biden presidency, they need to denounce President Trump's actions and, yes, they need to threaten action if he doesn't stop this right away.
