Students at Xceed Preparatory Academy discuss the inauguration in Weston, Fla., on Jan. 20, 2021. McConnell addressed Biden as "Mr. President" and and called him and Harris a "son and daughter of the Senate." McCarthy was among the House Republicans who voted to overturn Biden's victory when Congress counted the electoral votes on Jan. 6. He also noted that Harris made history Wednesday as the first woman to serve as vice president, which he said all of America should celebrate.

The second impeachment of President Donald Trump has concluded, not with a bang, but with a whimper. What is needed, rather, is criminal prosecution. Trump previously suffered impeachment for deploying unlawful means to remain in power — using his office to leverage Ukraine to investigate then-Democratic opponent Joe Biden’s family. That impeachment did not deter Trump from abusing his power again, nor should we believe that this one will deter anyone else. By imposing a personal and direct punishment upon Trump, criminal prosecution will force future leaders to think twice about threatening that essential precondition of any functional republic: the peaceful transfer of power.

If modern American politics is entertainment as much as civics, then Trump was its star performer. The big question is whether it took a Trump to make 2016 happen in the first place. The fact that Republicans lost when Trump was not on the ballot is evidence in favor of the case. Perhaps the next Trump, if there is one, will be another celebrity. Republican voters have already put a Fox News viewer into the White House.

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden was elected on a promise to heal the nation, saying Republicans would have a post-Donald Trump "epiphany" that would finally allow for bipartisan governance. There must be accountability for lies and lawbreaking. Biden has already ruled out a pardon for Trump, saying at an MSNBC town hall before the election that he would defer entirely to prosecutors and not get involved. But the new president will set the tone for how former Trump officials and defenders should be treated in public life. "A lack of accountability is the quickest path to instability and future division," Perriello said.
