On Wednesday, ABC News senior national correspondent Terry Moran said former President Donald Trump’s continuing influence and control over the Republican Party was similar to a “Caesar” and a “Fuhrer.”
Moran made his comments during his network’s second day of the coverage of the second impeachment trial of Trump.
ABC News’ Moran Compares Impeachment To Brown v. Board Of Education’
Moran said, “Whatever you think of this case, they have risen to the moment.”
“This is an atrocity in our history, an atrocity against our Democracy, and the care with which the Democratic House managers of this impeachment trial have come prepared, their argument is organized, they are ringing the notes of patriotism and the emotion of the attack itself, and surrounding that with what they hope is an evidentiary trail from Donald Trump to that attack,” he opined.
“That is their challenge here.”
Moran seemed convinced that the impeachment trial was constitutional, based on Democrat arguments.
“As far as the constitutional question is concerned, you know, there are now two Senate votes, one in the 19th Century and one today, that the Senate can try impeachments after the officer has left office,” Moran said.
“That is now like arguing with Brown v. Board of Education,” the ABC News correspondent insisted.
Brown v. Board of Education was a landmark Supreme Court case which ruled that state laws segregating public schools were unconstitutional.

Moran: ‘Republicans Just Aren’t Going To Budge’
He then accused Republicans of being stubborn.
“One more thing, which is the way that Republicans just aren’t going to budge,” Moran went on.
“Whatever the nature of this argument, whatever the nature of the fact, is because I think we heard it in these vivid videos that the House Democrats are playing, ‘Fight for Trump, fight for Trump, fight for Trump,” Moran continued. “Not, ‘Fight for America.”

Moran On Trump’s Influence On The Republican Party: ‘It’s A Fuhrer’
That’s when he compared Trump to a “Fuhrer,” the title bestowed upon nazi dictator Adolf Hitler during Germany’s Third Reich.
“He has the Republican Party as a personalized power like we have not seen,” Moran said.
“It’s a Caudillo, it’s a Caesar, it’s a Fuhrer,” he claimed.
“We don’t see that in this country,” Moran finished. “We do now.”
