i wish DJT all the best, I truly do. All the best of what's available to an incarcerated person. In the vital interest of national security, some people truly need to be locked up. And so, I say: LOCK HIM UP, and quickly, before his irresponsibility results in even more catastrophic damage to our nation. I don't say this vindictively; I wish not to judge, but I think it's way beyond being abundantly clear that he's proven his danger to our nation beyond any credible or reasonable doubt.

Thank you for continuing to be the voice of truth and reason.

I have listened to the January 6th hearings, and having read the affidavit above, plus your article and Heather Cox Richardson's Letters from an American. I am ever more alarmed and incensed at the Republicans continuing to follow this monster. As we know he is only interested in money, certainly not people or the welfare of our country. So the question is to whom has he shown these documents? Who has he sold copies to? How has he not been arrested for treason??? He must be locked up, and all his treacherous cronies with him. I only hope he has not yet put lives in danger or damaged our national security beyond repair, though it would be a miracle if he has not done just that. God help us all.

Trump would do anything to serve his self centered interests. Even if it means a threat to our Country. He's a very dangerous man who can't be

trusted. I am concerned if he shared any information with our adversaries. I hope justice does prevail.

I don't understand how Trump could still have supporters after January 6th. If all Trump Republicans can somehow rationalize the attempted coup, they will probably invent some excuse to justify the removal of the affidavits.

Hopefully, just hopefully, the highly questionable former President has ran out of thumbs to prevent his demise. This particular leak in the dyke is a major threat to our democracy! He must face judicial action!

But we can not use this to lessen our get out the vote efforts as there are many in this country who are determined to overthrow our government.

The title of this post is its most important part. We must allow ourselves to continue to feel shocked and outraged with EVERY piece of information about each and every one of Drumpf’s illegal activities.

Like the Old Testament Psalmist in another time and place cried out” HOW LONG O LORD many not only in America but also now around the world Must be crying this out. Mr Trump has endangered the lives of many working in the security systems around the world. Will the wider world as well as Americans ever trust their security again. Mr Trump must be belled and not allowed to consider candicy in 2024.

He has to be treated as a SPY for a foreign government as he has stolen secrets of our government and who knows what he has done already or planning to do. My guess is leaverage for whatever they indict he for.

I thought we could rest after he was voted out, but he continues to dominate the news every day. I just want him to disappear. If that means he sits in prison, so be it. I will rejoice!

My dream is that the United States government as well as local and state governments start measuring their policies and laws on a Well-Being Index. Great Britain and some other countries are already doing this. Every policy and every piece of legislation would have to show how it was a benefit to all the People. I'd like to see it replace or at least be as important as GNP. See Dr. Martin Seligman's Theory of Well Being at https://positivepsychology.com/perma-model/ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0LbwEVnfJA . He has already set up Well Being Index that scale with the Soldier and Family Fitness program for the U.S. Army.

Trump probably regarded them as trophies, something he could show off and brag about to whoever he was trying to impress that day.

I could never have imagined the things that have occurred in the last 6 years surrounding the former occupant of the White House. But even more, as someone who was once a Republican myself, I could never have imagined the entire Republican Party - the party that once claimed to care more about national security (although even then the claim was untrue) - becoming a part of this treasonous madness.
