‘Marshall Law’

Luke Broadwater and Alan Feuer, reporting for The New York Times on new evidence showing Republican members of Congress pressing, futilely, to keep Trump in office even after the January 6 riot at the Capitol:

“In our private chat with only Members, several are saying the only way to save our Republic is for Trump to call for Marshall law,” Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, Republican of Georgia, wrote to Mr. Meadows on Jan. 17, 2021, misspelling the word “martial.”

Good luck finding a single paragraph in a news story that better captures our entire political moment.
