What makes Election 2020 so fraught is that Trump is facing so much risk of legal accountability that he has unusual incentives to try to cling to power.
Memphis police brought “taser shields,” capable of delivering shocks of up to 320 volts of electricity, to a protest calling for accountability for Breonna Taylor’s death. The county sheriff’s office is calling the rollout a “regrettable mistake.”

We voted no on the McConnell-GOP bill because among other problems it includes huge bailouts without protections for people and workers and without accountability, and because it shortchanges our hospitals and healthcare workers who need our help. These changes need to be made.
Authoritarian governments, not democratic republics, send unmarked authorities after protesters. These Trump/Barr tactics designed to eliminate any accountability are absolutely unacceptable in America, and must end.
