Pulitzer prize winning biographer, presidential historian John Meacham on the pending indictment of former Presidend Donald Trump:
It is incumbent on us to tell a different story. To tell the story than in fact, the constitution matters. The rule of law matters.
This is gong to sound bit grand, but I believe firmly that this generation will be judged our success or failure at standing up to totalitarian impulse in the United States.
The Greatest Generation rose up and faced that challenge on the war torn fields of Europe. Our generation will have to face it within our own country – hopefully through our legal system.
