How was Chancellor Palpatine able to take control of the Senate and proclaim the Galactic Empire? The Star Wars: The Clone Wars series explains this quite well.
In Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith, Chancellor Palpatine takes control and names himself Emperor of the First Galactic Empire. Why didn't anyone intervene here? In the final season of the series Star Wars The Clone Wars we find out.
Palpatine, the trustworthy chancellor
Palpatine was a chancellor who made decisions. Some may not have been popular, but he did something in crisis situations. He was also quite charismatic in nature. The people trusted him. In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, this is also shown by the fact that even Ahsoka Tano defends him. And she looks at what is happening in the series from a different perspective. She is not a member of the Jedi Order and is not a member of the Senate. It is basically an outsider.
When Obi-Wan Kenobi tells her in the series that the Jedi order uses Anakin Skywalker to spy on Palpatine, she reacts interestingly. She said: "The Chancellor has always been a good friend and mentor to Anakin. I cannot imagine that he will be pleased about it."
Basically, Ahsoka defends Palpatine. This shows how popular the Chancellor is, even to those with whom he is not directly involved. He was able to win the trust of the people, which is why it was easy for him to appoint himself emperor – all for the good of the people, of course.
The Jedi basically brought themselves to an end. Because Ahsoka trusts the chancellor more than the order. This also shows how the people could think. Palpatine places the Jedi as a traitor and everyone accepts it. Ahsoka experienced firsthand how to deal with her. She was thrown out of the order for something she didn't do. It is clear that she gives Palaptine greater trust than the Jedi.
