William A. Galston added “Donald Trump’s Insurrection Act Gambit” (Politics & Ideas, Nov. 15) to a protracted listing of measures that the press warns will intestine U.S. democracy in a second Trump presidency.

The risk of Insurrection Act abuse could be a lot decrease if the definition of “insurrection” had not been dumbed-down by Democrats following Jan. 6, 2021.
