"Matter of fact, he still claims he won the election and most Republicans still repeat that lie, as an article of faith."

If this issue really bothers you, how did/do you feel about Stacy Abrams never conceding and in fact still thinks it was stolen from her. Further, how did/do you feel about Hillary publicly telling Biden some 5 weeks before the election to "never concede". If it was not an issue then, why now?

You don't seem too appreciate the significance of this. A former President is actively promoting the idea that our election was rigged against him. And he and the GOP are actively inserting operatives into positions of power in order to ease his theft of the next election. The former guy was behind the Jan 6th insurrection at our capitol. He is undermining our system of laws. This is real and present danger to our nation.

Stacy Abrams, beyond voicing her concerns about her election, has not taken ANY action beyond her initial challenge. Someone's comments are not really relevant.

"And then there’s the matter of Jan. 6th, for which he has yet to be held accountable."

How did/do you feel holding BLM accountable for some 2 billion $ in damages across the country and some 2,000 injured or killed? By the same new goal post standard, the Jan 6 folks were mostly peaceful protesters as well.

Things are different for different people it seems. Why is that?

Laughable. You are comparing very different things and pretending they are the same. You lump together various incidents of violence across the nation at various times and blame them on "BLM". Why? That is pretty silly and nonsensical on its face. Then, you want to compare that constructed lump with a single, unprecedented attack on our capitol. These things are not even remotely comparable. Ask yourself why that is among the talking points promoted any so many on the right.

All acts of violence should be prosecuted. Many involved in those riots you refer to are being or already have been prosecuted. Many involved in the Jan 6th insurrection have been as well, and will continue to be for a while. The House panel investigation, although being met with any and every possible challenge from the former guy, including telling his people to defy congressional subpoenas, to not cooperate, while also repeatedly challenging the release of documents from the national archives that will ultimately reveal the truth of what happened that day. Ask yourself why he and they are so vehemently hiding this information?

This kind of corruption is a threat to our nation. Trump is in the process of encouraging more of it, and will try to influence (steal) the next election, whether the himself runs or not.

Believe me, I look forward to the day the Trump is gone from the headlines and is no longer a threat.
