As long as @SpeakerPelosi continues to throw wet blankets on #ImpeachmentInquiry momentum, all Trump’s corruption will be normalized forever.

In 1973, @HouseJudiciary Chair Rodino hired an "inquiry staff" of 100, which included 44 lawyers. Pelosi has hired ZERO.
“The Framers were concerned that a president could abuse his authority in ways that would undermine the democratic process and that could not wait to be addressed. So they created a mechanism for considering whether a president is subverting the rule of law…
...or pursuing his own self-interest at the expense of the general welfare—in short, whether his continued tenure in office poses a threat to the republic. This mechanism is impeachment.”

@POTUS, when white supremacist terrorists use your own words in their attacks on peaceful Americans, when the people of color they attack are those you personally demonized, and when the Senate blocks bills passed by the @HouseDemocrats aimed at protecting us, you are the problem
@POTUS, you can try to blame the media for conveying YOUR white supremacist words that led to these attacks, you can try to blame the victims or anyone else, but the white supremacist terrorist insurgency was fomented by you and your @whitehouse and even your fanatics know it.
Your abuse of power and office inciting violence against peaceful Americans is another offense in the longest list of impeachable offenses we’ve ever seen from a president in America. I hope the @HouseDemocrats will complete their #impeachmentinquiry soon so you can be #impeached

At the risk of pissing off new followers, I'm going to share my stance on why I can't support ANY of the females running for the Democrat nominee in 2020 (even though I am female, and would love to be alive for the first female US President). 1/8
None of the female candidates have the proven history of fighting truth to power. Our country is in dire need of structural government change. We need a President with a proven history of fighting the powers that be. By 'powers that be', I'm including @TheDemocrats insiders 2/8
who have shown their cowardice by not starting an #ImpeachmentInquiry immediately after the Mueller Report was released. By 'powers that be', I'm including the media superstars (e.g. @Maddow) who have shown their lack of will to call a #Fascist when he presents himself 3/8

I'm not sure I could ignore some of the the things he says, however I do understand the need to redirect. In that spirit let's be reminded of these things:
#WeBelieveMueller

1. Everyone has their favorite moments, but the #MuellerHearings were important enough to warrant my number one slot.
The single best minute today. #MullerHearing


Trump could be potentially charged after he leaves office, but should Americans have to wait? That brings me to #2.

THREAD — THERE IS NO #IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY

Deeply troubling that #Pelosi and #Nadler are trying to obfuscate and confuse Democratic voters.

But let's be clear, as CNN reports today: "Pelosi and Nadler have so far resisted the pressure from within their party to open an inquiry."
THERE'S NO IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY

After months of intense activist pressure @SpeakerPelosi and @RepJerryNadler realized they had to throw Dems a bone, so they concocted a convoluted narrative to make it appear the #impeachment process has begun. It hasn't.

@SpeakerPelosi @RepJerryNadler THERE'S NO IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY

Let's be honest: Dem leaders want to punt to 2020 voters while Trump abuses power with total abandon.

#Nadler's words: “If an impeachment inquiry is if you’re considering only impeachment, that’s not what we’re doing.”

“To argue—like @SpeakerPelosi—that one first needs to assemble all possible facts before proceeding, is to profoundly misunderstand the nature of impeachment. An impeachment inquiry is the constitutional mechanism for doing this work, not its outcome”
theatlantic.com/magazine/archi…
Building the "strongest possible case" is what an #ImpeachmentInquiry is for. In Oct, 1973 Judiciary Chair Rodino hired an “inquiry” staff of 100, including 44 lawyers to gather evidence. Committee didn't meet to discuss it until Feb, 1974.
“Nadler countered Pelosi's pushback by noting that polls showed limited support for removing Nixon from office when the House began impeachment hearings in 1973, but that public support for the effort grew as more evidence came out about his behavior.”

Q: When Trump lies to the People of the United States that there was "No collusion" with Russia & "No obstruction", both of which are contrary to Mueller's findings, is that an impeachable offense??
A: See Item 8, Richard Nixon Impeachment Article I.
Nixon impeachment resolutions before finally launching Impeachment Inquiry:
May 9 & 18, 1972– Reps Wm. Ryan & John Conyers
July 31, 1973– Rep Robt. Drinan
In 1973– Speaker Albert referred 24 impeachment resolutions to @HouseJudiciary
Oct 30, 1973 – Impeachment inquiry launched
Impeachment is starting to snowball –
“the vote showed that a big block are not on board with @SpeakerPelosi’s stance: 95 Democrats, or about 40 percent of the 235 House Democrats”- FiveThirtyEight

“No collusion; No obstruction” –
88 days after release of Mueller’s report, Trump still drives the narrative.
#ImpeachmentInquiry would drive the narrative, but @SpeakerPelosi takes a back seat like a feckless autocrat, #AfraidToBeBold. nytimes.com/2019/06/06/opi…
Pelosi Tribe ARGUMENT 1: “Not enough support in the Dem Caucus.”
ANSWER 1: Pelosi’s not pushing it. She’s doing the opposite: Quashing it!
“Leaders presented them polling from 50 battleground districts to underscore the peril in backing impeachment.”

Pelosi Tribe ARGUMENT 1: “Not enough support in the Dem Caucus.”
ANSWER 2: There probably is. “The House Probably Has A Pro-Impeachment Majority Right Now”

🇺🇸 It’s time. Democracy delayed is Democracy denied. Calling our Representatives in Congress at 202-224-3121. #ImpeachmentInquiry #ImpeachDonaldTrump

1/
We should also each make a phone call to @RepJerryNadler who can begin the impeachment inquiry on his own as Chair of the @HouseJudiciary.

2/
Why?
There already is a long list of his impeachable offenses. Just last week he was dangling a pardon before Michael Flynn. Last night he was on television saying he would meet with and take help and opposition research from a foreign government without informing the FBI.

Trump sets the table for Russia & destroys 2 years of FBI work. He’s “undone months of work, essentially inviting foreign spies to meddle with 2020 presidential campaigns & demoralizing the agents trying to stop them.” politico.com/story/2019/06/…
If you trust the FBI to block Russian interference in our 2020 election, here’s a great fictionalized account of a black flag operation in the Trump era. It only takes a few FBI Trump lackey toads to pull it off. “The Middleman”– Olen Steinhauer

Part of the solution? Or part of the problem? –
@SpeakerPelosi’s House sycophants will be complicit for this:

• Trump is “trying to undermine Wray...get him to resign so he can get an FBI director as subservient to him as AG Barr.” – Beschloss @Maddow

If @HouseDemocrats don't begin an #impeachmentinquiry that presents a coherent narrative of RU election attacks, Trump campaign's embrace of RU contacts & Trump's obstruction, then by 2020, the lie that the investigation was unfair & Trump did nothing wrong will be firmly rooted.
No one is saying impeachment is a magic bullet or that it will lead to Trump being removed or changing his behavior, btw. We don't need to throw up straw man arguments to have something interesting to say. Impeachment is simply what is constitutionally required right now.
It is, in other words, the least that must be done.

@LaurenDownSouth @Pamacious @samstein @JoseyRider 1/ (Not numbering to be snarky, just because this’ll be long) I’m pushing for immediate #ImpeachmentHearings because each day that passes, Trump and his fascist GOP enablers consolidate power and capture or shred government and civic institutions.
