Back when Donald Trump was in power, we all instinctively knew that he was doing even uglier things than what was being reported at the time. When he was removed from power, we knew that it was all going to come out – and we knew that it was going to be disturbingly ugly.

Sure enough, we’re now seeing that. Is anyone surprised that Trump had the DOJ illegally spying on the personal data of his fellow public officials like Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell? Of course not. But it’s still jarring to see it in print this week. This is surely far from the worst thing that Trump did, and even uglier things will surface as this year goes on.

Here’s the thing. Even as the headlines about the Trump era continue to grow darker and more disturbing, it’s important to remember that Trump and his top henchmen are no longer in power. They’re no longer able to do these things. It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that Trump and Bill Barr are still in there, still doing these things, still making things even worse for America. But they’re not. They’re unemployed.

   

In reality, things are getting much better. Just think about who’s now in charge, compared to who used to be in charge. But four years of criminal depravity can’t be cleaned up in a day, or a month, or even six months. There will always be this ongoing lag where a new Trump-era scandal emerges, and then it takes awhile for any sort of justice to be served because the justice system moves slowly, even as yet another Trump-era scandal emerges. But we’re heading in the right direction. Let’s keep up the pressure, and continue the great American turnaround.
