Below is a very long interview on PBS of Judge Michael Luttig who received several calls from the office of the VP of the USA prior to June 6, 2022, when the Capital building in Washington DC was attacked. What is impressive in the interview is the clear articulation and wisdom of the Judge. He is clearly careful with his words, which he underlines at the end of the interview.
What took me back was his analysis of the current political environment of the USA. It is clear he sees that starting with the run-up to the 2016 election things began to change, that things continue to move in a way that will lead, not might lead, but will lead to the destruction of the USA as a reliable and stable democratic state. His quote, which you’ll hear more than once, “we are at war with ourselves”.
As I said, it’s a long interview but worth every moment.
This man is a model of exemplary leadership.
