Stuart Stevens makes it clear that the lying autocratic nature of the Republican Party has little to do with Trump.
Stuart Stevens nails it
The Lincoln Project Senior Advisor Stuart Stevens could not be clearer as he makes a very important point. Congressman Jim Clyburn in an earlier clip pointed out that the Republican Party, the party of his parents was now a cult. He said that the party turned itself over to Trump. Clyburn hopes that sensible people will reformulate the party.
Stevens has a take that is more apropos.
“I have one disagreement with the Congressman there,” Stuart Stevens said. “I don’t think that Donald Trump changed the party. I think Donald Trump revealed the party. These people are what they want to be. The Republican Party is very comfortable being an autocratic movement now. And that’s hard for a lot of us who worked in the party to come to grips with. But I don’t know any other conclusion to come to in any kind of honest intellectual sense. They are about the business of changing what we’ve always known as American Democracy. There was a plot to end the peaceful transition of power and Mitch McConnell surely knew about this PowerPoint. He did nothing. “
The PowerPoint that Stevens spoke about is the draft of the plan Trump and his minions put together for the January 6th coup. As more information is revealed, it is clear we were in fact on the brink of an overthrow. It is imperative that all of these people go to prison for treason. They were all terrorists and fascists.
