Thursday/ Jan. 6, a year later

A year later, some 800 rioters and insurrectionists have been indicted for the events at the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Some have been tried, found guilty, and have started to serve lengthy jail terms. The Mobster-in-Chief is still the de facto leader of his party, though (the Republican Party National Committee Chair said that he is the leader, in August).

History will not forget, though — whether the disgraced, defeated former President pays a price or not.

Front page of the New York Times from a year ago: ‘Trump incites mob’ and ‘It’s part of his legacy’.
Further down on the page “Americans at the Gates: The Trump Era’s Inevitable Denouement”. Looking back now, was it a denouement? (Denouement= the final part of a play, movie, or narrative in which the strands of the plot are drawn together and matters are explained or resolved).
