The following are remarks made by New York’s Attorney General Letitia James following the end of Donald Trump’s reign as president of the United States. I thought they were worth repeating here for those who are interested and/or concerned about the state of our democracy.
“President Donald Trump started his administration with unethical behavior and he will end it no differently.
“The 143 pardons and commutations issued in the twilight hours of the Trump Administration perfectly sum what this lame-duck president has always been about — favoritism towards those who show absolute loyalty to Donald Trump.
“At noon today the Trump presidency and this national nightmare will finally be over. In a matter of hours the rule of law will be restored and our nation will begin to heal from four years of abuse, corruption and hate. We are all counting down the minutes.”
