On January 6, 2020, hundreds of political scientists signed an open letter demanding that President Trump be removed from office via impeachment or through the invocation of the 25th Amendment.
Dartmouth political science professor Brendan Nyhan tweeted “Donald Trump should be removed from office immediately – he is unwilling or unable to fulfill his oath to protect and defend the Constitution. An open letter from 200+ political scientists (and counting): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iL.”
The letter was written after a pro-Trump crowd stormed the U.S. Capitol, which argued that Trump’s behavior allegedly threatens American democracy.

“He has rejected the peaceful transfer of power, encouraged state legislators to overturn election results in their states, pressured a state official to change election results, and now incited a violent mob that shut down the counting of electoral votes and stormed the U.S. Capitol,” the letter stated, which was co-authored by Nyhan and fellow Dartmouth professor John Carey.
“Our profession seeks to understand politics, not engage in it, but we share a commitment to democratic values,” the letter outlined. “The President’s actions show he is unwilling or unable to fulfill his oath to protect and defend the Constitution. He should be removed from office immediately before further violence takes place or further damage is done to our democracy.”
Among those who signed on to the letter was the renowned, realist international relations scholar Stephen Walt. He tweeted, “Count me in.”

Ironically, Walt is one of the more prominent advocates of foreign policy restraint and a skeptic of a foreign policy that benefits politically-connected defense interests. The Trump administration arguably had the most restrained foreign policy of the last five decades.
The entire ruling class is showing its true colors as gatekeepers who want to bring back politics to the days of the neocon/neoliberal consensus. These folks will be in for a rude awakening given that such politics will never come back to America.
Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
