“If in fact Biden wins, it’s still the case that an openly bigoted aspiring authoritarian not only won the presidency but captured the complete loyalty of one of two major political parties, and — but for a once-in-a-century pandemic — he might have been re-elected,” says Ian Bassin, co-founder of Protect Democracy, a non-partisan legal group.  “If that doesn’t tell you that something is completely rotten in the foundations of our democracy, I don’t know what would.”
The story of American politics in the 21st century has been one of escalating polarization and gridlock, a nihilistic feedback loop that has made the country all but impossible to lead.  For years, a chaos-ridden nation has waited to deliver its verdict on Trump’s unorthodox presidency.  But this is 2020 — the year when up was down and real was fake, the year of the plague, the year of the unexpected:  of course it would not be that easy.  Both sides hoped for a knockout blow, a landslide that would forever settle the question of which version of America is the true one.  Instead, our identity crisis continues.

“We are not going to rule it out or in,” Nadler tells TIME.  “If our duty is to do it, we will do it.  If it’s not, we won’t.  Impeachment is not a punishment.  It is not a political act to say we think it’s a good idea to get rid of the President.  Impeachment is a defense of the Constitution, a defense of liberty.  It’s a very blunt sword that should only be drawn if absolutely necessary.  But it may be.”
    —    Representative Jerry Nadler

“People ask me what I want to be remembered for; and I generally say peace and human rights,” he says.  “I think it’s a basic right of a human being to have a home that’s decent in which to raise children, and to have an adequate amount of health care and to have an adequate amount of education to take advantage of whatever talent God may have given them.”
