Witness and beyond

It seems to me that the distress on the left over Trump’s election derives from some sort of corrupted moral witness thinking.  The moral witness sees and tells the truth, in spite of cost.  This person therefore acquires moral authority.  An ‘If A then B’ statement.  The corruption enters when others agree with the witness, then assume the presumed mantle of moral authority, then extends that presumed authority to judge.  Perhaps I misunderstand the moral witness concept.
