Endorsing impeachment, the Philadelphia Inquirer speculates along some familiar lines.
In defying these orders, and through his continued ridicule of the impeachment process and the members of Congress who initiated it, Trump has severely disrespected his office and the document he swore to protect and uphold. Should this process end with a trial and a Senate vote to remove him from office — a prospect that seems highly unlikely — it’s not hard to imagine that he would insist that the process was invalid and refuse to go.
Such an act of tyranny is what the Constitution was created to protect against.
This is not idle fear-mongering, and I don’t have the slightest difficulty imagining the moronic cultists who are his base rallying to his support.
