This Is the Week Trump's Crimes Finally Started to Catch Up With Him
Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastThe search for a single Republican who hasn't sold himself to the devil has yielded no one but found one willing to add perjury to his list of sins. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced on TV that everything he will do at the impeachment trial in the Senate will be "in coordination with Donald Trump and his White House lawyers." This despite the fact that under Article I, he will be raising his right hand and swearing, "I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help me God." 

And with that, the impeachment hearings have confirmed without a shadow of a doubt that the executive and legislative branches are dead to us, for now.

But there are ways to seek incremental justice in places beyond Republican power in courts that wouldn't dare announce they were on the take, much less actually be so.

There was already a decades-high pile of evidence proving Republicans oppose democracy before the House took up the Voting Rights Advancement Act last week. The partisan vote on the bill—which saw nearly every Republican refuse to restore anti-discriminatory protections to the 1965 Voting Rights Act—nonetheless reaffirmed GOP investment in a compromised democratic facsimile that excludes black voters. 

Conventional contemporary punditry holds that Republican voter suppression tactics that target black and brown Americans—closures of polling sites, purges of voter rolls, and strict voter ID laws—are due not to racial resentments but those groups' Democratic reliability. Racist GOP voter disenfranchisement, according to this thinking, is less a manifestation of white conservative bigotry than colorblind power grubbing.
