Trump, the Impeachment and the Civil War


It looks like the Democrats will fail with their impeachment against Trump, as they have only second-rate witnesses and the Senate Republicans will vote for Trump. I saw the House of Representatives‘ intelligence committee hearing yesterday, and there was no real smoking gun. Still, it is a novelty that a US president is threatening to mobilize his armed supporters, militias, and the Alt-Right, and that there is even talk about the possibility of civil war. Reminds of an armed US – SA and the bleak warnings of Robert Kagan about Trump „How fascism came to the USA“. It would also be interesting to see where the US military would stand in such a case or whether it would split and whether we would see a constellation like in the Weimar Republic when Seeckt declared „troop does not shoot at troop“ or something similar. But it shows the ruthlessness of Trump and the increasingly radicalized US right. Wild West.High Noon.And it remains unclear how Trump would react in the event of an election defeat, whether he then does not recognize it, will speak of conspiracy and electoral fraud and does not want to leave the White House. Let’s hope that it does not come to this worst case scenario, because then the US would be paralyzed and this would be an invitation for Putin and Xi to challenge the US geopolitically or perhaps even the USA would like to fight wildly to compensate for the internal crisis by a foreign policy crisis and rally around the flag.
