🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.

Get the popcorn, Friday & Saturday will deliver on the MAGA promise. POTUS knows he must clean house (gov't) in order to 'free up' and demonstrate who has authority in order to pass important legislation. This was always the priority.

I'm glad to see #Florida Governor @RonDeSantisFL taking action to combat the state's toxic algae issues. I've worked on this for almost a year, so I'll post some thoughts related below of things that need to happen, imo.…
1. Despite being a climate change denier on the campaign trail, DeSantis MUST acknowledge climate change and the role it plays in this algae disaster. He says he's hiring scientists, and unless they're corporate hacks, this is what they're going to tell him.
2. While a lot of Florida's problems are "internal", an EPA with no teeth isn't helping. DeSantis needs to encourage Trump to "reset" the EPA back to 2016! EPA has a water monitoring role AND Florida's largest pollutor (Mosaic) needs to be closely monitored at the fed level.

🌎Donald Trump—🌪️Roger Stone—🔥Paul Manafort—🌬️Roy Cohn
There are so many connections between these four gentlemen, but the common thread between them all appears to be Roger Stone.…
🔪But Stone’s rules: “Attack, attack, attack—never defend” and “Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack.” This “advice” came via renowned attorney Roy Cohn, who represented Donald Trump late in Cohn’s life.…
🌬️Cohn’s "original" 3-dimensional strategy via @vanityfair article: 1. Never settle, never surrender. 2. Counter-attack, counter-sue immediately. 3. No matter what happens, no matter how deeply into the muck you get, claim victory and never admit defeat.”

They’re Trying To Stop The Count — Again!… #FloridaRecount #FloridaRecount2018 #Florida
My very first US investigative report was published by Salon in 2000 about the theft of the vote in #Florida. Fast-forward to 2018 and the photos are nearly identical — GOP bullies trying to stop the vote count.…
This week in #Florida, my camera crew captured menacing crowds supporting the GOP chanting ‘Stop the count’—the exact phrase the GOP chanted in 2000. And in 2018, Democratic demonstrators are chanting ‘Count all the votes'—the exact same (failed) chant from 2000. #FloridaRecount

Imagine if NFL team was trailing 24-22 but in final seconds hits a 3 pt kick to win. Then AFTER game lawyers for losing team get a judge to order rules changed so that last second field goals are only 1 point

Well that’s how democrat lawyers plan to steal #Florida election 1/4
For example, #Florida law requires that the voter signatures on mail ballots match the signature of the voter.

But Dem lawyers are asking a judge to throw that law out & force Florida to count ballots with signatures that don’t match the voter signature on file. 2/4
#Florida law requires a manual recount of “undervotes” in close races & provides a clear standard for determining whether a voter intended to vote for a candidate.

Now Dem lawyers want a judge to order Florida to ignore this intent standard when reviewing “undervotes” 3/4

✅Check this out! #Maine’s race for 2nd Congressional District will be decided by ranked voting because no candidate has 50% of the vote yet.

🔥But incumbent Bruce Poliquin & the GOP are making similar claims to #Florida Governor Rick Scott: that the SOS “mishandled ballots.”
#Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap criticized Poliquin’s campaign, saying those comments could lead to voters losing confidence in the voting system.

Ranked voting results are expected mid-week & #Democrat Jared Golden @golden4congress could win.…
ℹ️This is explains the ranked voting system. #Maine is the first state to use it.

💥And an Election Day poll said that Jared Golden would get 93% of the independent candidates’ votes.

🗣️People were calling for the resignation of Brian Kemp before the Gubernatorial election that he was in against Stacey Abrams @staceyabrams, started. Kemp was #Georgia's Secretary of State (SOS) until last Thursday 11/8/18 when he resigned.

👉Rick Scott is Governor of #Florida until January 9th—so he's Ken Detzner's supervisor until that time. He appointed Ketzner to the SOS post in January 2012.

⁉️With all the controversy surrounding the Florida elections, isn't this a bigger CONFLICT OF INTEREST than Kemp's?
🔥🔥Not only that!🔥🔥

⚖️Rick Scott had to be stopped by a court from doing this▶️between 3 judges' resignations at midnight on 1/8/19 and the next governor's swearing in ceremony at 12 noon on 1/9/19.👇

Folks: Few states count provisional ballots, early ballots, or overseas ballots quickly; usually they do not have to do so because the numbers don't require it... there is a big enough margin for these not to have any effect. In #Florida and #Georgia you have several issues. 1/
@ScottforFlorida has been governor for two terms/8 years. During this time he has underfunded election security and election processes, did not replace Ms. Snipes who he now berates. Why? So he could underfund the election machinery in that county and then blame her for problems?
For @ScottforFlorida to complain now when he is responsible for underfunding election staff, machines, etc is laughable at best, but really a tragedy of democracy. The idea that the second largest county in Florida, underfunded for this purpose, should now pull out miracles,

Many of the same people in media & commentary class who are always warning about “threats to our democracy” are excusing or deflecting attention from the blatant lawlessness in #Broward & #PalmBeach undermining the credibility of & public confidence in our elections 1/3
They make straw man argument that we must “Count Every Vote”

They say we are misrepresenting #Florida law,even though 2 separate judges today found violations

They say claim of past misconduct by #BrowardCounty is unfounded even though ignoring years of local media coverage 2/3
If a “Red County” did what #BrowardCounty & #PalmBeachCounty are doing, they would march in the streets & confront Republicans about it in restaurants

But because it’s happening in a “Blue County” they create increasingly novel & creative arguments to justify it. 3/3

🔥🔥There are a lot of reasons why Russian hackers might have tried to help Trump/Scott/DeSantis win the elections in #Florida:

▶️Trump never did anything to #ProtectOurVotes after the 2016 election hack
▶️#Florida is often a deciding factor in presidential elections
🔥Reasons why #Florida elections might have been hacked (cont'd)
▶️Florida has 29 electoral votes
▶️Right now it has a GOP trifecta, one of 26 states
▶️GOP majority when there is a Dem majority in the U.S.
▶️Trump needs as many allies as possible in DC
🔥Reasons why #Florida elections might have been hacked (cont'd)
▶️To continue to cause turmoil, divide Americans and disrupt democracy
▶️Trump lives in #Florida (David Koch also has a house there, many Russians invest in real estate there, alleged money laundering)

#BayCounty was hit by a Cat 4 Hurricane just 4 weeks ago,yet managed to count votes & submit timely results.

Yet over 41 hours after polls closed #Broward elections office is still counting votes?

#Broward supervisor:
- says she doesn’t know how many ballots are left to be counted; &
- Isn’t reporting hourly or regularly,but rather releasing thousands of additional votes,often in the overnight hours,that are chipping away at GOP leads


#Broward elections department has a history of violating the law:

A court found they improperly handled votes by mail:…

Court found they destroyed ballots in 2016 in violation of state & federal law:…

If you voted for Trump Republicans @ScottforFlorida, @RonDeSantis and @RepGusBilirakis, no thanks to you for turning #Florida into the new Georgia. By putting party before country. you've killed off our tourist industry with this new red tide.
