Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this week lectured the country of Georgia about the value of free and fair elections, even as President Donald Trump is attacking the American state of Georgia for holding a free and fair election.

Pompeo on Twitter posted photos of his visit to Georgia in which he emphasized how important it was for the country to embrace democracy.

“Great to meet with Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia… to discuss the importance of holding free, fair, and transparent elections in Georgia,” Pompeo wrote. “I reaffirmed unwavering U.S. support for Georgia’s sovereignty in the face of Russian occupation.”

That presumption is this: the Republicans, especially those in the Senate, fear the wrath of voters who have balled up their identities with the rise and fall of Donald Trump. For this reason, all the Republicans, with rare exception, stand in silence while the president prosecutes what must be called an attempted coup d’etat.
