Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook on the Political Consequences of the Storming of the Capitol

| Jan. 07, 2021

After the riots at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, many are worried about the peaceful transition of power on January 20th. With the police failure and the discovery of numerous pipe bombs at the Capitol, Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook warns that the danger has not subsided. 

Clüver Ashbrook does not believe that Impeachment proceedings are realistic given the short time available: "There are still many bureaucratic hurdles. And that will probably no longer be manageable in the next 12 days. But the advantage of such a process would be that Donald Trump could never again become President of the United States. "

Joe Biden, the future President, must act quickly and decisively after the handover and present results. "Especially for Trump supporters who have felt overlooked and neglected for years by the Democrats, the country's elite."
