@RepAdamSchiff says the #DNI “has said essentially that he is answering a ‘higher authority’ and refusing to turn over the #whistleblower complaint (ignoring a #subpoena!).

This involves the president, people around him, or both.”

Schiff told @FaceTheNation that the DNI is refusing to turn over a credible #whistleblower complaint of “serious or flagrant wrongdoing....involving privileged communications.”🤬

“This involves the president, people around him, or both.”


How much do you want to bet that this “serious of flagrant wrongdoing...involving privileged communications” involves Jared KUSHNER leaking classified intel to the Saudis?🤔

Either way, Congress MUST be allowed to investigate this.

Okay so now the impeachment is probably actually happening, let's talk why I've been supporting it all along.

Yes, I am justly terrified of Mike Pence. He's the kind of person would actually get things done if Trump was impeached and he ended up in office.

However. (1)
That won't happen. Why? because of Mitch McConnell. He would never even dare start impeachment proceedings in the Senate.

So then why even bother you ask?

It's a matter of precedent.

The fact is, in our past presidents have been impeached for much less than all the (2)
Incredibly illegal things Trump is doing. Shall I make a list of them for you?

Tweeting classified information.

Violating the enoulments clause.

Being a rapist.

Hate speech.

Going around due process.

Overriding the power of Congress to check the executive branch.

Can someone help me: Is there something the Speaker can/should do when a president is "violating the Constitution"?
I mean other than clap at him.
Let's not just blame #NancyPelosi.

Nadler, Schumer, Hoyer, etc. are all part of the Dem leadership.

And all of them have been part of the decision not to #ImpeachTrump.

In fact, #Nadler has done the most to create confusion by pretending to impeach.

Trump is the most impeachable president ever. @RepJerryNadler has failed to #ImpeachTrump for SEVEN months.

Now that he faces a serious challenge from @LindseyBoylan, he's spinning that he's for impeachment. But THIS is the reality:

Trump's fundraising is through the roof. His approval is rising. He is reveling in racism. His administration is targeting immigrant kids for abuse.

Dem leaders claiming we need MORE evidence to #ImpeachDonaldTrumpNOW are just stalling.
@RepJerryNadler @LindseyBoylan SIMPLE QUESTION:


If #impeachment is really happening, as Dem leaders and the corporate media claim it is, WHEN IS THE VOTE?

Because as Trump wreaks havoc, saying we still need more evidence is just dithering.

And it's normalizing and accepting all his abuses.

What are they celebrating with radiant smiles, thumbs up and selfies? 34 dead in 2 states in a week--from mass shootings. 22 in El Paso. 9 in Dayton. 3 in Gilroy. In 2019, 62 killed in mass shootings. Hundreds wounded. As the Trumps beam and pose, 680 arrested in Mississippi...
...laborers at the Kochs chicken processing factories. Children are left in schools and in the streets without parents. Neighbors take them to gyms to await their fate while their parents are taking away, handcuffed. The Republicans are speaking of "Hispanic Invasion."
Is this the time to smile wide? But don't blame it all on the sociopaths in power. Anyone smiling wide in these photos from the official White House Flicker account (no copyright, use as you wish)…

It's encouraging to see House Dems gradually come out for #impeachment, but let's acknowledge those like @RepMaxineWaters, @RepAlGreen @RashidaTlaib, @ewarren, @AOC, and other activists and elected officials who were ahead of the curve.
@RepMaxineWaters @RepAlGreen @RashidaTlaib @ewarren @AOC Groups like @MoveOn, @IndivisibleTeam, @Need2Impeach, @StandUpAmerica and several others have played a crucial role in building pressure on Dem leaders. And whatever you think of his presidential run, @TomSteyer has been pushing to #ImpeachTrump for a long time.
@RepMaxineWaters @RepAlGreen @RashidaTlaib @ewarren @AOC @MoveOn @IndivisibleTeam @Need2Impeach @StandUpAmerica @TomSteyer One of the reasons I was eager to join @LindseyBoylan's campaign as an adviser is because she was calling for #impeachment months ago. I've been deeply disappointed in my longtime @RepJerryNadler for dithering on holding Trump accountable and Lindsey's clarity is refreshing.

1. Now that an impeachment investigation is underway, all of @POTUS malevolent acts from abuse of power like his racism and use of military money his racist border scam, to profiting off the presidency, to encouraging hostile attacks on our elections are impeachable offenses.
@POTUS 2. Those who are pushing for his eventual impeachment should include impeachment language in every post related to @POTUS illegal, immoral, and anti-America actions. While the @GOP puts party over constitution, @POTUS puts himself above all else. #ImpeachTrump #LockHimUp
@POTUS @GOP 3. I don’t buy distraction theory, but even if I did, almost every Trump distraction is also an impeachable abuse of power and office. Tie every distraction, every change of subject, every kleptocratic edict, everything back to impeachment. #ImpeachTrump #LockHimUp

35 reasons the #MuellerTestimony assists the case of #ImpeachTrump:

1.Mueller directly says that he didn't exonerate Trump.

2.Mueller directly says that Trump wasn't cleared of obstruction of justice.
3. Mueller directly says Donald Trump could be charged with a crime after he left office.

4. Mueller agrees, under Department of Justice policy, the president could be prosecuted for obstruction of justice crimes after he leaves office.
5. Mueller agrees there is sufficient factual and legal basis for further investigation of potential obstruction of justice by Donald Trump.

6. There is substantial evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors committed by Donald Trump.

THREAD: Most reporting on DFA's July 2019 Presidential Pulse Poll results that we released today will be focused on the current top-lines, there's a TON of fascinating info right beneath the surface.

Let's take a little time & chat about them.
First: the way the top-five candidates in our Presidential Pulse Polls have changed (& occasionally haven't) over time is fascinating.

@BernieSanders has been strong throughout, but the growing support for @ewarren and @KamalaHarris since Dec. 2018 is v. noteworthy.
@BernieSanders @ewarren @KamalaHarris The changing dynamics of progressive's top-5 in our July 2019, April 2019, and December 2018 Presidential Pulse Pols is more pronounced in this graph.

Check out: @ewarren's rapid growth over the last three months... also @BetoORourke & @PeteButtigieg rapid rises & descents.

This impeachment dance by @RepJerryNadler has become farcical. Every couple of days, someone close to him leaks a story about how he "privately" supports #impeachment.

His challenger, @LindseyBoylan, called to #ImpeachTrump in FEBRUARY. What is he waiting for?
I mean, seriously, how long does #JerryNadler think he can play this game of hiding behind #Pelosi while his people leak to the media how "principled" he is?

Moral courage is SPEAKING OUT no matter the consequences.

Wow, powerfully stated:

"Nadler can’t salvage his legacy with the Ivanka strategy of leaking that he wanted to do the right thing." - @AJentleson

Someone asked "Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?"

Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England, wrote this magnificent response:
"A few things spring to mind.

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility,
no honour and no grace - all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable,

#RobertMueller will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

Here are some crucial questions that should be asked when he testifies (Thread 👇). | Article by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork…
1) Did #AttorneyGeneral Barr in any way misrepresent your 448-page report?

#Mueller failed to identify the grand jury info in the #MuellerReport. Barr noted that “it immediately meant that you know it was going to be a period of weeks before we could get the report out.”
2) Who actually wrote Volume I and Volume II of the #MuellerReport?

At this point, it isn’t known with certainty if #Mueller had any hand in writing the report directly, or if he simply served in an oversight capacity.

The narrative of #ObstructionOfJustice originated prior to the conclusion of the #MuellerReport. (Thread 👇)

Less than 6 months after #Mueller’s appointment, @BrookingsInst published “Presidential Obstruction of Justice: The Case of Donald J. Trump.”…
The report outlined a scenario whereby #Mueller would refer his #Obstruction findings to #Congress, which would then take up the matter and continue investigating.

The report also discussed ways Congress could #ImpeachTrump, mentioning the word “#Impeachment” 90 times.
2 of the report's authors, Barry Berke & @NormEisen, were later retained by #HouseJudiciaryCommittee Chairman @RepJerryNadler on a consulting basis as special oversight counsels to the Democrat majority staff.…
