From the article:
"For 230 years, two norms have anchored American democracy. One is that elections must be free of foreign interference. Another is that the presidency must be free of institutionalized corruption. Trump is undermining both. The TRP’s single goal is to preserve those norms."
But oh what a crock, there are no such norms to preserve. The political corruption and foreign influence run deep through both duopoly parties.
Can we discern no Saudi or Israeli influence over US politics, Democrat and Republican, administration after administration, Clinton and Bush and Obama?
Can we discern no institutionalized corruption by transnational corporate power, fossil fuel interests, the military-industrial-congressional complex?
What an utter crock. Trump is horrific and utterly corrupt, and in some ways is taking the blatant cronyism and transparent corruption to new levels of shamelessness. Make no mistake, we need to fight hard, and fight to win, against Trump and his whole agenda and his whole team of corruption and cronyism. But the fundamental institutional rot runs back decades, and thoroughly infects both duopoly parties. There are no such norms to preserve. We need to fight against the whole mess, not delude ourselves that installing Clinton or another thoroughly corrupt corporatist would restore some "normalcy" that does not embody complete corruption and influence.
