Letter today from @SenatorCollins says #Mueller left it to #Barr to decide whether Trump obstructed justice. In fact Mueller EXPLICITLY said he would've exonerated Trump if he could have & laid out SUBSTANTIAL evidence for MULTIPLE counts of obstruction.
For 6 months, I've asked #Collins 2 yes/no Qs: Did she read Mueller's Report & did she agree w/ his finding that Trump would've been indicted for obstruction if he weren't president? From her answer, I don't know if she read the Report & didn't understand it or didn't read it.
Impossible to look at #Mueller's Vol 2 table of contents & think he didn't determine whether Trump obstructed justice. TRUMP OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE. Mueller explicitly states he didn't charge Trump because of DOJ/OLC policy, not because Trump is INNOCENT.

@Senatemajldr @HouseGOP @GOPLeader @SenateGOP cc @POTUS @realDonaldTrump @TrumpWarRoom @MattWolking @HoganGidley45 @mercedesschlapp @GopChairwoman

Impeachment Proceedings

Just to be sure you have clear understanding of my/our
expectations - we expect you to fight it all of the way! We expect you to immediately launching counter attacks at every level
and using any authority you have. Just what does that look like? Write a bill requiring every Senator and Representative to annually publicly post
all federal tax returns (personal, corporate, estate, trust) along with all schedules and all wage and income statements. Force the vote - we know it won't pass. 2)pick 2 liberal judges and begin impeachment, 3) pick a democrat senator and start censuring procedures. Simply said

🔥🌊#DEMOCRATS Serving in State Legislatures🌊🔥

Please read this thread to see why you MUST not vote for any constitutional convention resolutions!

🐺No subject is safe, including left wing causes that all #Democrats favor. You are being duped w/ these resolutions (links 👇).
🐺Language used by Wolf PAC is meant to tempt Democrats, but Constitutional Conventions are extremely dangerous to anyone whose last name isn’t KOCH.

Please don't open Pandora's Box.

#UnKochAmerica
#NoConCon4Anything
ℹ Language now used in Resolutions used to lure #Democrats include:

🐺Free & Fair Elections
🐺Repeal Citizens United
🐺Election Integrity
🐺Limits on Political Contributions & Expenditures
🐺“Limited” Convention

Why are all calls for Constitutional Conventions dangerous?

🏆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.

#ImpeachTrump
🥇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.

Want to tackle racial inequality? State level policies are a good place to start. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of some of legislation proposed in #Maine that will help level the playing field (thread) #mepolitics #MartinLutherKingJrDay
“An Act To Expand the Earned Income Tax Credit in Maine” (LR 163) would increase the size of the state EITC, which goes to low income families. Maine has some the highest poverty rates for POC in the nation, and the EITC is one of the most effective anti poverty programs
“An Act To Ensure Pay Transparency and Reduce Gender and Racial Inequities” (LR 942) would require disclosure of race and gender pay gaps for large companies. Black women in Maine make ~59¢ for every $1 made by a white man. More transparency will force corps to face inequities

I'd like to send my big THANK YOU out to everyone today.

I left last week to the men to celebrate or lick wounds.

I started with 2 goals, both accomplished:

✔️ Incumbent no longer making law

✔️ Find a way to make campaigning not suck while getting $ OUT

#mepolitics #TWPSB
Quick recap of what we accomplished.

Final 1st round vote count looks like 16,260; 5.73% of the votes.

I spent <$800 of my own money, accepted no campaign contributions (probably <$750, I rounded up on stamps - I'd rather estimate high).

<$.05 per vote.

#TWPSB #mepolitics
We problem-solved to fix all the things we don't like about politics.

🚫NO CAMPAIGN SIGNS!
Bad for the planet, expensive and annoying.

👊Instead we made our own or had signs that could be downloaded, printed on a regular printer, taped in windows, then recycled.

✅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.

sunjournal.com/dunlap-concern…
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.

#DYK The post office issues safe driving awards to mail carriers? This is a neighbor of mine growing up in #Maine. She’s a great lady and deserves the recognition! Although they included an odd and abrupt USPS funding disclaimer at the end.

thecounty.me/2018/10/29/new…
#DYK The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

This is why packing tape from #USPS costs as much as my #studentloan payments. 😂
Speaking of #DYK That #maine has an opportunity tax credit that can help you repay your student loans? It won’t help you purchase packing tape but it might help Maine attract younger workers.

🗳️🦞If you back one candidate this week, I sincerely hope you consider backing Jared Golden for U.S. Congress ME-02, currently the Majority Whip in the Maine State House.
🗞️The “about” section of Golden’s website is probably one of—if not the most compelling descriptions of a candidate I’ve read in the past 2 years—and I’ve read a lot.

jaredgoldenforcongress.com/about-jared/
🗞️The profile is from an article that was in the Lewiston Sun Journal, written by Steve Collins.

⚕️One of Jared Golden's motives for running was his disappointment in his opponents’ decision to oppose the Affordable Care Act.

According to Chuck Todd, host of @MTPDaily, this tweet is a “tell” that Donald Trump is panicked about the effort from 18 Republican Attorneys General to challenge the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in court▶️seeking to end protections for those with pre-existing conditions. #LieGate
⚡️It’s certainly not a good look for Republicans less than 3 weeks from the November Election.

▶️Neither is talking about separating more children from their parents and putting them in cages
▶️Neither is talking about stripping Social Security & Medicare programs
▶️Neither is protecting the murderers of a respected journalist, then using money as the reason and inflating the numbers while you’re doing it

Dear @SenatorCollins, You keep saying you’re hearing “nothing” from constituents about #Kavanaugh. I invite you to come back home and actually spend some time in #Maine- and see the incredible community fighting his nomination. 1/9
For someone who repeatedly promised Maine women you would protect our rights - and earning the @PPact endorsement - how do you explain the 76% of women who OPPOSE his nomination? 2/9
And why are you letting the White House papers - of his “most formative years” (his words, not mine) not be released? Where’s the anger? 3/9

#Crosscheck “stymied"? #NewHampshire and #Maine JOINED the program. And #Indiana is absolutely still in the program and purged voters simply because they were on #Kobach’s list — which even Kobach says violated the NVRA. salon.com/2018/08/06/red…
Furthermore, the Supreme Court APPROVED #Crosscheck removals if a POSTCARD is sent and not returned. gregpalast.com/ohios-junk-mai… #PurgeByPostcard #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
#INDIANA IS STILL REMOVING VOTERS USING #CROSSCHECK. I’m not guessing. I have filed formal open records demands in 27 Crosscheck states — and, with @RevJJackson, sent formal notice of intent to file federal suit for Crosscheck records. gregpalast.com/suing-ohio-kan… #StopTheSteal

#Maine SoS Dunlap accuses Kobach of "troubling bias" & calls his claim that there's huge numbers of fraudulent voters "bizarre". Yet Dunlap is the ONLY Demo SoS to join Kobach’s bizarre & biased Crosscheck—which threatens to purge 1,062,818 Maine voters! washingtonpost.com/news/politics/…
Dupe? Dullard? Or Duplicitous? Dunlap, are you just another duplicitous politician singing different tunes to different audiences? I intend to find out: I’m suing your a** in 40 days unless you cough up the names of the thousands of voters you've purged on #Kobach’s say-so.

So much fun on #OpenFarmDay!

Our first stop was From The Country Farm. No online ordering, but you should absolutely do a #MaineRaising with a phone order. Amazing soaps, lotions and goat cheese.
