Expel Them!

To the editor:

The coup d’état that almost destroyed our democratic Republic on January 6 was not the work of just one man, nor the work of the white privileged, white supremacist mob that stormed the Capitol. It was supported and abetted by those Senators and Congressmen/women who joined in Trump’s lie that the election was stolen.

As active and tacit members of that coup, those Republican Senators, such as Hawley, Cruz and Kennedy, along with the 100-plus Republican Congressmen and women, should be expelled from their positions in Congress. They have failed in their oath to protect the Constitution and our Republic, putting their own political careers ahead of the safety of our nation. They have sullied America’s reputation in the world, forfeiting their right to represent their constituents.

Please join me in contacting Senator Leahy, Senator Sanders and Congressman Welch in demanding that those insurrectionist traitors be expelled from Congress.
