It was around nine o'clock on Sunday night when the President of the United States echoed language about a "Civil War" if he is impeached and removed from office. Now, he'll say he wasn't calling for a civil war—he was just announcing his belief that there would be a "Civil War like fracture" if he faced consequences for violating his oath of office and betraying the national interest for his personal gain. Never mind that impeachment is a provision of the Constitution designed for removing a lawless or otherwise dangerous chief magistrate from power in a manner that comports with the law. The intent here was clear: to tie one outcome to the other, and place the idea of violent response in millions of minds across this country. The vast majority of people would never act on that, but the tweets were incitement. The message has already been received, loud and clear, by at least one right-wing paramilitary group.... Of course, all of this is just further reason he should be removed, along with the manifest financial corruption at the heart of his domestic and foreign policymaking thanks to his refusal to divest from his private business holdings. He is capable of anything now, and defenders of the republic will need courage in response. P.S. Externally, the self-styled Messiah has turned the international trading system topsy-turvy. Internally, he is raising the spectre of "civil war" in a series of tweets. Chaos and conflicts seem to be inseparable from Donald Trump.
