Single crazies who try to assassinate prominent political figures always have been and always will e with us. Successful or unsuccessful, the Republic can always march on.
A sitting President refusing to leave office when defeated in an election, and the majority of a major political party in Congress colluding in his coup attempt is something new in our history and seriously threatens the end of our form of government.
As for the Supreme Court, it started to lose its legitimacy when a Senate majority refused to act on an opposition party President's nomination for spurious reasons and then compounded its politicization by rushing through a nomination in more extreme circumstances for a President of its party.
The balance of powers is in the ICU and the Constitution is circling the drain.
