At the same time, those defeated have not been hounded and jailed for their actions while in power. This differs markedly from democracies like Brazil and South Korea, where defeated presidents have been regularly jailed when their opponents seize power. By egging his supporters to storm Capitol Hill, Donald Trump unleashed forces that could terminate his presidency before Jan. 20, see him...
