This Is No Ordinary Impeachment

By Andrew Sullivan

This is not just an impeachment. It's the endgame for Trump's relentless assault on the institutions, norms, and practices of America's liberal democracy for the past three years. It's also a deeper reckoning. It's about whether the legitimacy of our entire system can last much longer without this man being removed from office.

I'm talking about ... a decline in democratic life so severe the country's very institutions could lose legitimacy as a result of it. ...a growing number of citizens and officials believe that norms, institutions, and laws may be ignored, subverted, or replaced...an extinction-level event for our liberal democratic system.
