🚨📹 #ICYMI, a mega-thread🧵 of clips from yesterday's explosive start to the Impeachment Trial of Donald J. Trump. #GOPCoverup #ShamTrial

As you may have heard, the proceedings started at 1PM and didn't end until 2AM – because #MidnightMitch wants it done in the dead of night.
Why is Trump being impeached? His lawyers asked disingenuously. Well, @RepJeffries did the rundown of Trump's high crimes and misdemeanors for them.

"And if you don't know – now you know!" #DefendOurDemocracy #EndTheCoverUp
@RepJeffries In a nutshell, House Managers focused on the facts establishing Trump's impeachable offenses and the need for a fair and REAL trial. Not an a**backwards #ShamTrial.

While Trump's lawyers hooped and hollered and acted offended. @RepAdamSchiff cracked their code for all of us.

#FollowTheFacts: Trump tried to coerce a foreign leader to make up dirt on his opponent and interfere in our election, was caught by a #whistleblower’s “urgent concern” complaint to Congress, but moved key evidence to a secret server in the #CoverUpOfTheCoverUp.
The #whistleblower used an Office of Director of National Intelligence form… to convey the Ukraine matter of “urgent concern” to Congress

PAGE 1 anticipates the complaint could go to Congress

PAGE 2 anticipates #hearsay
(“I heard about it from others.”)
So when you see protests from Donald Trump’s enablers of this #CoverUpOfTheCoverUp, do not follow them down the rabbit hole - #FollowTheFacts and remind them that whistleblower complaints go to Congress and that Congress expects they may begin as #hearsay.

@blakesmustache @cspan Indeed. Having been a prosecutor dealing with grand and petit (12 person) juries, I’m expecting the Judiciary Committee to collect evidence before listing the charges. OBSTRUCTION EMOLUMENTS
and NATIONAL SECURITY have been topics they investigate and litigate. #FollowTheFacts
@blakesmustache @cspan Anyone who participated in a grand jury or in a felony preliminary hearing presents the facts from an inspector and the live witnesses themselves. Although only an inspector is required in CA (with the case file being hearsay), we used live witnesses to test their credibility....
@blakesmustache @cspan ... and to let defendants know that the witness was going to show up. My cases were domestic violence and sex assault so witness intimidation was REAL and sometimes we added tampering charges against defendants. Here, Mueller was the Inspector not a live witness. We need both!

.@JerryNadler, Chair of the Judiciary Committee, teed off today's #MuellerHearings by establishing that Trump & Barr are lying about #Mueller's findings.

Mueller, when asked if his RPT found no obstruction and exonerates Trump: "It is not what the report said." #FollowTheFacts
As Democrats focused on obstruction of justice by Trump, GOP Rep. Buck tried to help Trump.

But ended up shining a brighter light instead on the tell-tale approach Mueller decided on for when he 1) found or 2) did not find sufficient evidence of a crime by Trump. #FollowTheFacts
House Intelligence Committee Chair @AdamSchiff put it all into perspective as he discussed the "methodical" and "devastating" #MuellerReport

Echoing Mueller's words, Schiff explained that nothing short of our American democracy was attacked and remains at stake. #FollowTheFacts

Mueller’s findings were damning: Trump welcomed Russia’s interference in our elections. Trump benefited from these crimes. Trump and Republicans in Congress are doing nothing to stop it from happening again. Congress must protect our democracy #ForThePeople #TrumpResignNOW 1/
Likely because he stands to benefit – again, Trump has done nothing to prevent another Russian attack of our elections and, in fact,
has made a future attack more likely. Republicans in Congress must join with Democrats to protect our democracy #ForThePeople #TrumpResignNOW 2/
From the start, Trump abused his power by obstructing any probe into Russia’s attack on our democracy. Although Mueller found
evidence of bad acts anyway, he made clear that Trump’s actions negatively impacted his ability to get at the full truth

You know what’s sober? The evidence against Trump - and the judge ruling that upholds Dem subpoena for Trump financial records via @politico
It’s “simply not fathomable that a Constitution that grants Congress the power to remove a president for reasons including criminal behavior would deny Congress the power to investigate him for unlawful conduct past or present even without formally opening an impeachment inquiry”
The sobriety of THAT ruling in favor of Speaker Pelosi and the US House of Representatives having the Constitutional right to Trump’s financial records WITH OR WITHOUT IMPEACHMENT is what has 45 shook. He can’t delay by waiting for impeachment — the evidence is coming regardless.

Roger Stone’s indictment makes clear there was a deliberate, coordinated effort by top Trump campaign officials to subvert the will of the American people during the 2016 Election. #FollowTheFacts
.@realDonaldTrump’s continued efforts to undermine Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation raises the questions:
What does Putin have on @realDonaldTrump, politically, personally or financially?

Today’s guilty verdicts against Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort & guilty plea by Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, are further evidence of the rampant #CultureOfCorruption & criminality at the heart of Trump’s inner circle.
Cohen’s admission of paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in hush money “at the direction of the candidate” to influence the 2016 election shows @realDonaldTrump’s claims of ignorance to be far from accurate, & places him in even greater legal jeopardy.
These convictions are further proof that Special Counsel Mueller’s team & prosecutors in New York are conducting thorough & professional investigations, which must be permitted to continue free from interference. #FollowTheFacts

Today’s indictment of 12 Russians who participated in a massive, concerted operation to interfere in our elections shows that immediate action is needed to secure our elections – not more Republican sham hearings. #ProtectOurDemocracy Image
Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation has now returned 32 indictments and multiple guilty pleas. This investigation is working, and must be allowed to continue to do its job free from the White House and GOP’s interference. #FollowTheFacts

You have a big problem with your mansplaining thread. First, WE ALL KNOW Brennan setup a multi-agency task force and pressured a cointel op. Second, the FBI has a duty to inform the Trump campaign of federal investigations into ANY members [Manafort, Page, Papa], which they
did NOT. Third, look into who this Professor Mifsud is. You'll find some pretty damn interesting ties, Alexander Downer. Downer was the Clinton protege who works for Hakluyt, an INTEL agency....See where this is going? Right back to Brennan, Clinton, Obama...
Ntm, Manafort was wearing a wire during the campaign..just as Papadop,
and Carter Page (I wonder if there's any relationship to FBI Lisa Page?) were monitored...Oh but we can't talk about that FISA, so let's move on to how Manafort was represented by the most corrupt, shady law

.@RepCummings: #POTUS #Trump - If you don’t have anything to hide – let the #TrumpRussia investigations do their job. Period.
.@RepCummings: This is not some witch-hunt. This is a fight for the soul of our democracy. #Flynn #Russia #POTUS #Trump
How many of #POTUS #Trump's advisors have been linked to #Russia? #Manafort
