After Trump is Impeached
If one were cynical, one could imagine that the individual overseeing the damaging White House leaks is Mike Pence. But, who is so cynical?
Regardless of who the key players are, if Trump gets booted out of office, if he resigns, if he suffers a heart attack or aneurism due to his inability to handle the stress of the Presidency, it will be Mike Pence, not Hillary Clinton or any other Democrat, who will be appointed President. This would ensure an undemocratic power grab of a figure much further to the right, much more competent, and much more intelligent than Donald Trump.
A prospective Pence Presidency is just one reason that it is not enough to just go after Donald Trump. Progressives need to develop and articulate visions and action plans regarding social and economic justice, environmental sustainability, democracy, and peace. I see some of that happening at local levels, in grassroots community based organizations. But, the establishment Democrat power structure continues to focus on building fear and loathing for everything Putin, WikiLeaks, and any critique of the espionage power structure. The anti-Trump only momentum, void of any progressive vision, has the potential for stymying or rolling back advances at the grassroots level.
