No healing of nation without Trump conviction | READER COMMENTARY

If Donald Trump is not convicted by the U.S. Senate, they are basically agreeing with him that we are a country with rigged elections (”Impeachment still matters now that Trump’s out of office, here’s why,” Jan. 25).

Former President Trump will continue to claim he is the rightful president having won by a landslide. There will be no healing in this country. Should the Senate convict him, Mr. Trump will certainly continue to claim the election was rigged, but moderate Republicans along with Democrats will be able to turn Trumpism into a fringe group where it belongs.
