@HouseJudiciary @OversightDems @FSCDems @HouseIntel @WaysMeansCmte

Wanna see what they are doing with that power?

1. Watching snippets of the #CohenTestimony I'm struck by how similar this is to an organized crime trial. LEO gets one bad guy to admit to crimes he's committed but makes a deal to get to the higher ups. That's typical right? And of course the defense attorneys...
2. The defense attorneys for the higher ups attack the credibility of the "flipped" witness. He's a liar. He's a criminal. He's going to get a book deal. But here's the thing...@GOP members of the House & Senate are NOT supposed to be defense attorneys for the @POTUS ...
3. They should be on the side of Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs). They should be protecting the laws of the land and the people who they serve. Apparently partisan power is more important to them than anything else. Many of them tried to impeach Clinton for far less.

Most members of Congress used the #CohenTestimony to grandstand, but @AOC may have implicated Trump in a whole new case altogether in less than 5 minutes. No wonder Republicans are terrified of her. Shout out to the new class.

AOC, Pressley, and Tlaib all looked ready. They did not disappoint. The future of the Democratic party is looking bright.
I'm glad the Democratic party is welcoming more young people to the table. People who can speak this passionately about the problems in politics are a net positive for the discourse.

#CohenTestimony Clearly the Democrats colluded with their star witness.
They've done it before.

See HPSCI #FusionGPS Glenn Simpson hearing Nov 2017.

Read it carefully. drive.google.com/drive/u/0/sear…
When authentic questions are asked, Simpson is unprepared.
W/Gowdy, Q & A is rough.
Took 6 pages to get through basic question about WHO THE CLIENT WAS

(spoiler alert: Hillary.
Which meant DNC, since she owned them--whiiiich is another issue...
Laundered through PerkinsCoie)
Contrast Gowdy's raw question and answer with @AdamSchiff & Glenn Simpson's pas de deux.
Choreographed.
Planned.
Smooth, like a couple who finishes each other's sentences.

Note how answer starts with conjunction; e.g., "so..."
Simpson readily filled in details such as "NYT"...

Rep. Jim Jordan finds a way to blame the Clintons for this hearing. #CohenTestimony

LMAO
I feel like we've all been living with the trauma of this trump presidency for so long that it's not sinking in how big of a deal this #CohenHearing is.

This is a big fucking deal.
the administration is being run like the Mafia, so much so that the first thing Cohen asked for was protection for his family.

Dear @HouseGOP,

Your feeble attempts at squashing the #CohenTestimony using procedural obstruction not only makes it obvious that you all are pooping yourselves, but you're doing it on national tv. The law and the American People are watching.

What are you so afraid of?
"Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase. There comes a time when silence is betrayal. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter..."
"... In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."

Quoting the great Martin Luther King Jr., @RepCummings reminds @GOPoversight that their actions have consequences

Michael Cohen is about to testify before the House Oversight Committee. Follow along for a video thread.
LOL -- An angry @RepMarkMeadows begins by trying to do Trump's bidding by moving to postpone the hearing, because Cohen's testimony wasn't given to members early enough.
.@Jim_Jordan is out here pushing conspiracy theories about CNN before Cohen has even had a chance to say a single word

It's almost liftoff time.

And since Michael Cohen has this in his testimony.. this meme seems appropriate for this thread.

Leta discuss testimony here.
Mark Meadows is showing his SHIT and Cohen isnt sworn in yet
SHUT THE FUCK UP GYM JORDAN

And that bullshit from Graham about Dems turning Kavanaughs hearing into a circus.

THREAD: FAILURE TO IMPEACH

Trump's behavior absolutely warrants — even demands — #impeachment. And this is without #Mueller or #CohenTestimony. But the GOP will subvert the Constitution to protect him. And House Dems refuse to do it, even though polls show majority support.
THREAD: FAILURE TO IMPEACH

And to the argument that the Senate won't convict, that doesn't matter. The PROCESS of impeachment will affirm that the rule of law still matters, and it can focus the national spotlight on the sheer magnitude of Trump/Pence's corruption.
THREAD: FAILURE TO IMPEACH

#Impeachment hearings would tell the world American democracy is still alive and that kleptocracy and creeping fascism haven't completely destroyed the rule of law. House Dems refusing to do it is a failure, and will cost us dearly. No sugarcoating it.

In his opening statement, Michael Cohen will reportedly say he witnessed Trump speaking w/ Roger Stone about Stone’s communications w/ Julian Assange.

Cohen will also reportedly testify that Trump knew in advance that WikiLeaks would soon publish hacked HRC campaign emails.
From Michael Cohen's opening remarks: "A lot of people have asked...whether Mr. Trump knew about the release of the hacked [DNC] emails ahead of time. The answer is yes. ...Mr. Trump knew from Roger Stone in advance about the WikiLeaks drop of emails." #CohenTestimony
Michael Cohen will also reportedly testify that Trump's lawyers "reviewed and edited" his false statements to Congress regarding the Trump Tower Moscow project:

"Mr. Trump had made clear to me ... that he wanted me to lie."
