#Pelosi also implies those who pushed early for #impeachment lack integrity, deliberation, and fairness.

And she initially hoped there was exculpatory evidence for Trump with #Ukraine.
For anyone arguing that ripping families apart and traumatizing children isn't a crime, consider this:

"Last surviving prosecutor at Nuremberg trials says Trump's family separation policy is ‘crime against humanity’"…

It matters whether it's politically expedient or not.

It matters whether it pisses people off or not.

This is the truth:

I'm used to being gaslighted by Trump and the GOP, but I'm not going to sit back while the history of how we got to the brink of #impeachment is rewritten in real time.

The Dem establishment (Pelosi, Nadler, etc.) spent all year blocking it and letting Trump run amok.
It took MASSIVE grassroots pressure and mobilization by groups like @IndivisibleTeam, @by_the_ppl, @MoveOn, @StandUpAmerica to get here.

Not to mention the foresight and courage of reps like @RepMaxineWaters, @RashidaTlaib, @RepAlGreen, and others...
@IndivisibleTeam @by_the_ppl @MoveOn @StandUpAmerica @RepMaxineWaters @RashidaTlaib @RepAlGreen Friends of mine like @PamKeithFL, @jljacobson, @sarahkendzior, @murshedz, @ProudResister and many others were on the front lines of the #impeachment push, and were trolled and harassed nonstop for it.

1/8 Speaker #Pelosi sounded like the lawyer for #AlCapone (#BidenUkraine) arguing Eliot Ness (Trump) is bad guy.

Brings to mind Madison in Federalist 48: "POWER, by its nature, tends to ENCROACH beyond its assigned limits, and thus it must be restrained." #QAnon #Impeachment
2/8 Madison: "Will it be sufficient merely to mark precisely the boundaries of these departments in the Constitution, and then to trust the strength of these parchment barriers against this encroaching spirit of power? #QAnon #WWG1WGA
3/8 Madison: "In a republic, the People ought to indulge ALL their jealousy and exhaust ALL their PRECAUTIONS against the enterprising ambitions of the legislative department. (That is, CONGRESS.)

"BE PATIENT" I keep hearing.

Tell that to the kids in cages.

Tell that to the families of mass shooting victims.

Tell that to the sick people losing health care.

Tell that to the homeless kids and veterans.

Tell that to the targets of white supremacists.

Am I encouraged that #Pelosi and House Dem leaders are moving in the right direction? Sure.

It's thanks to tireless progressive activists and to reps like Waters, Tlaib, Green, AOC, etc.

But should #impeachment have happened 8 months ago?

How many rightwing judicial appointments while Dems dithered on #impeachment?

How much white supremacist terrorism?

How much damage to the environment?

How many people have lost health care?

How many immigrant children traumatized?

Sorry, but I'm not in a cheerleading mood.

Of 235 #Dems in the House, 139 publicly support #impeachment investigation on #Ukraine allegations that #Trump personally & directly intervened in release of foreig#n aid $ to a “hot” war zone & raised investigating #Biden. Today I expect we will hear #Pelosi saying it’s time.
While the #MuellerReoort gave ample grounds for concern on #Trump campaign 271 contacts with #Russians, this is a case where #Trump admits undeniably dangerous behavior & obstructing Congressional oversight of it.
#Trump calls #Ukraine Pres 1 day after #Mueller testimony in Congress reduces #GOP fear of #impeachment.

@RepMaxineWaters & @RepAlGreen (among others) called for #impeachment LONG ago. Progressive activists have relentlessly called on Dems to #ImpeachTrump.

But conventional wisdom elevates white centrism and marginalizes POC and progressives.
@RepMaxineWaters @RepAlGreen WHITE CENTRISM (2)

Month after month, #Pelosi, #Nadler, #Hoyer and other Dem establishment figures have stalled and slow-walked #impeachment, while progressive activists and reps like @RashidaTlaib, @RepAlGreen, @AOC and others have pushed hard to hold Trump accountable.
@RepMaxineWaters @RepAlGreen @RashidaTlaib @AOC WHITE CENTRISM (3)

Lo and behold, after constant pressure from progressives on #impeachment, the DC establishment starts caving. But who is portrayed as the "grownups"?

Those who were ahead of the curve? Nope. It's Beltway centrists who get the credit for moving the needle.

For months, @RepJerryNadler had no intention of impeaching Trump. None. Receipts below.

Lo and behold, his challenger @LindseyBoylan raises a quarter million with no corporate PAC $$ (which Nadler accepts) and Nadler magically becomes Mr. Impeachment.
@RepJerryNadler @LindseyBoylan Meanwhile, story after story leaks about how #Nadler is all for #impeachment but #Pelosi is holding him back.

That's a farce.

If Justin "Tea Party" Amash could figure out we should #ImpeachTrumpNow, then why is #JerryNadler STILL stalling with these pointless hearings?
@RepJerryNadler @LindseyBoylan As I said earlier today: WE DON'T NEED MORE EVIDENCE.

Saying we need more evidence is accepting Trump's premise that nothing he's done to date is impeachable.

Bottom line: #Nadler is abdicating his oath and trying to throw Pelosi under the bus for it.

This is the third article today about the muddled message from Dem leaders.

It's actually very simple:

#Pelosi has no intention of impeaching Trump.

#Nadler was fine with that. Until @LindseyBoylan, a serious challenger, came along...
@LindseyBoylan So @RepJerryNadler has managed to hide behind @SpeakerPelosi and blame her for slow-walking #impeachment.

But for months, he was downplaying #impeachment ... before he got a serious challenger.
@LindseyBoylan @RepJerryNadler @SpeakerPelosi In the end, #Nadler is trying to keep his seat, so he's playing politics with his most sacred duty as a representative, to protect the Constitution.

And he's doing it by pushing what I call "Schrödinger's impeachment" -- an impeachment inquiry that isn't really one.

"Across eight polls taken since the beginning of June, between 62% and 85% of Democrats expressed support for impeachment." - @aedwardslevy

The spin from @SpeakerPelosi and @RepJerryNadler is that they need to "build support..."
@aedwardslevy @SpeakerPelosi @RepJerryNadler NOTHING Democrats do will sway Republicans to support impeaching Trump. They will stand by him no matter what he does.

So when #Nadler and #Pelosi pretend that "gathering evidence" is a good-faith path to building support for #impeachment, they are trying to deceive you.
@aedwardslevy @SpeakerPelosi @RepJerryNadler One reason I became an adviser to @LindseyBoylan's campaign for Congress in #NY10 is that she had the moral clarity to call for #impeachment back in February.

Watch her video and you'll see why/how the Dem leadership is trying to fool us.

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.

I'm not going to mince words: The Dem leadership is on track to botch 2020 and re-elect Trump.

Nearly 2 dozen presidential candidates, instead of recruiting strong senate challengers.

DCCC blacklisting progressives.

#Impeachment turned into a farce of dithering and delay.
Trump's favorables are rising and he's raising boatloads of money.

#Nadler and #Pelosi are still groping around for "evidence" to support #impeachment while Trump and Miller and Pence and McConnell promote #WhiteNationalism.

All the while, immigrant children are abused...

He has disgraced his office. He has engaged in #StochasticTerrorism against people of color. He has called the media "enemies of the people."

His presidency is an affront to human dignity. But Dem leaders can't find the spine to oppose him.

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."

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.


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.”

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

OK, let's cut through the noise on impeachment.

First, let's state the obvious:

Donald Trump's entire presidency is an impeachable offense, an affront to basic human values, an insult to common sense and common decency, a threat to the rule of law.

The #MuellerReport found multiple instances where Trump obstructed—or attempted to obstruct—justice.

He has violated the emoluments clause of the Constitution by using the office to enrich himself and his family.

He coddles dictators while alienating allies.

Trump has repeatedly undermined the First Amendment (which he's sworn to defend) by inciting violence against the free press and calling them "enemies of the people."

His party has launched an unconstitutional assault on women’s reproductive rights and health.

Le #breaking de la nuit US qui n'en est pas vraiment 1. La Chambre a voté pour condamner les tweets racistes de #Trump. Enfin les 235 représentants démocrates, 4 républicains (sur 196) et 1 indépendant.…
2) Cette condamnation symbolique de #Trump et de ses propos racistes par la Chambre n'a concrètement que peu d'effet sinon de prouver au président que le parti républicain est désormais entièrement sur sa ligne nationaliste/nativiste et identitaire blanche…
3)… et #Trump en fin politique "d'instinct" a été le 1er à s'en réjouir: comme il le souhaitait, on a désormais 2 blocs face à face, irréconciliables, sans plus de consensus possible sur des valeurs nationales dépassant les stricts intérêts partisans. RT

Seuls 3 élus républicains ont condamné à cette heure comme racistes les tweets de #Trump sur les 4 élues progressistes démocrates.
Parmi eux:
le seul représentant républicain afro-américain de la Chambre, Will Hurd.
Le seul sénateur républicain afro-américain Tim Scott.
2) Faits, sur ce qu'est le parti républicain en 2019, #Trump ou pas:
. 4 représentants républicains afro-américains élus à la Chambre depuis le début du XXIe siècle (435 représentants élus tous les 2 ans)
. 2 sénateurs républicains afro-américains élus au Sénat (1881-2019)
3) Les républicains ne réagiront pas en majorité aux tweets racistes sans aucune ambiguïté possible de #Trump d'abord car sa ligne nativiste et identitaire blanche a gagné dans le parti, achevant la mue d'1 parti intégrant avec Nixon puis Reagan l'héritage ségrégationniste du Sud

1) #Breaking TRES important à 2 titres.
D'1 part le président US #Trump renvoie les 4 représentantes progressistes (AOC, Pressley, Tlaib et Omar) à leurs présumées naissances étrangères, leur ordonnant de taire leurs critiques sur le gouvernement US ou de "rentrer chez elles"...
2) Or, 1 seule des représentantes en question (Ilhan Omar) n'est pas née aux #EtatsUnis. Mais pour le président US #Trump, si vous êtes née de parents étrangers immigrés (Tlaib), portoricains (AOC) voire Afro-Américains (Pressley), vous n'êtes pas quand même pas citoyenne US.
3) S'il ne faut pas commenter tout tweet de #Trump, celui-ci est 1 véritable AVEU, très signifiant politiquement. Pour le président US, quand vous êtes enfant d'immigrés ou réfugié, vous n'êtes pas étatsunien et vous restez 1 étranger. Idem pour Portoricains et Afro-Américains.

Several vaguely-sourced articles claim @RepJerryNadler privately disagrees with @SpeakerPelosi over #impeachment. If #Nadler's team thinks that makes him look principled, they're wrong. It just shows he knows what's right but won't do it. Deeply irresponsible.
#Nadler has represented me for years. I respect him. He's been good on most issues. But two serious breaches have alarmed me:

1. Going after Ilhan Omar.

2. Failing to wield his power to hold Trump accountable.

These reflect an inability to properly confront GOP extremism.
Two candidates are in the race for #NY10, @Lindsey_Boylan and @amandapfrankel. Similarly, @ShahidForChange is running against #Pelosi.

We need MORE people to run for office in a healthy democracy. No rep. should "own" a district. If they're popular, they'll win reelection.
