Liberal MPs Pam Damoff, left, Francesco Sorbara and Salma Zahid. Damoff announced she would not run in the next election, citing misogyny, death threats, misinformation, disinformation, and the lack of civility.

Donald Trump's hush-money trial started last week in New York City and is expected to last six weeks. If Trump can convince voters that the justice system is corrupt, the way he persuaded millions of America that he really won the 2020 election, they may give him a political pardon in November. Even if he is convicted in that New York courthouse.

We are living in the midst of a crisis of credibility, a time when most people don’t know who or what to trust. Things have grown so desperate south of the border, that a man who wants to suspend the Constitution and preside over a dictatorship is leading in the polls. Never mind that he might also be on his way to jail, writes Michael Harris. Image courtesy of Pexels

Joe Biden, left, and Donald Trump. If Biden had been an American soldier, sailor, marine, or member of the space force, he would have been retired now for 17 years, and Trump is no spring chicken.
