Russian President Vladimir Putin’s election interference emphasizes the need to show that democracies don’t work. Putin’s use of his puppet, President Donald Trump, underlines that he is successful. No one in U.S. government — not House Speaker Nancy Pelosi or any other Democrat — can hold Trump accountable for his illegal actions. No one has the power to stop him. This proves that what we call democracy in this country is a joke. Without congressional oversight, we will continue to live with a government ruled by a tyrant.
