Senator Susan Collins: This is a bipartisanship test for Joe Biden. Chuck Schumer & Democrats used reconciliation to pass covid relief.

Jake Tapper: Republicans did it too for tax cuts for the rich

Collins: Well that was different.

STOP TAKING THESE PEOPLE SERIOUSLY. #CNNSOTU
Senator Susan Collins on the Capitol insurrection white supremacist terrorist attack: We Republicans don't want to become too much like the Democratic party which has been taken over by the Progressive left. We adhere to core principles. 🤯 #CNNSOTU #SusanCollins
Sen. Susan Collins gives a long fake ass response to the importance of leaders like Liz Cheney in the Republican party to stand up to Trump then refuses to say whether she voted for Joe Biden or Donald Trump in 2020. #CNNSOTU #Senate #ElectionResults

Oddly (or manipulatively?), an additional #Republican who voted to impeach #Trump--#SusanCollins--claims she opposes #TPP (now called "#CPTPP")…yet somehow blames Trump for TPP—even though Trump formally withdrew USA from TPP?

#NoTPP #StopCPTPP


pbs.org/newshour/show/…
This brings the total number of #Republicans who tried to impeach #Trump, recently...who seem to *either support TPP or mislead people about the history of TPP* to be about 5/7...

#TPPInsiders are BIPARTISAN.

#Independents & #progressives who aren't sure they're going to #VoteBiden should spend 20 mins finding out what's really at stake from 3 top (former) #Republican strategists. Their answer is EVERYTHING. /thread

@SteveSchmidtSES 1>#Republicans have no platform. Literally. They are officially a cult of personality.

2>#RNC made lawless use of the people's house, the most powerful symbol of the state. Trump's in effect saying he IS the state, he IS the law.
Schmidt: 3>Trump campaign & #RNC know using the #WhiteHouse & WH staffers for the convention is illegal & did it anyway. Trump doesn't just demand loyalty. He demands his staff break the law as proof that HE is the law. "The light's gone from flashing yellow to flashing red."

#BREAKING:So with elections less than 70 days away,#Trump's Director of National Intelligence(DNI) ABRUPTLY decides that MoCs will NO LONGER receive in-person briefings on foreign election meddling,just written reports?Hmm
#TheResistance #Election2020 #SaturdayThoughts #FBRParty
Folks, I've said it before and I'll say it again. CHEATING, possibly with #Putin's help, has ALWAYS BEEN #Trump's strategy towards reelection and keeping the Senate under #GOP control. Possibly why #SusanCollins et al, PLAY ALONG

#TheResistance
Election meddling is part of the strategy for keeping the Senate under #GOP control. Exhibit A👇

#SusanCollins 10-7-19: #Barr was right to determine "the President had not broken the law" b/c #Mueller didn't weigh in on obstruction. In fact, Mueller's Vol 2 is entirely devoted to the case against Trump on multiple obstruction charges (see below). #TheyKnew #mepolitics thread
In a letter to me dated 10/7/2019, #SusanCollins claimed that #Mueller didn't determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

In fact, Mueller writes, "If we had confidence ... that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state."
#SusanCollins, like #Barr, lied about the contents of Vol 2 of the #Mueller Report. It was entirely & explicitly devoted to preserving evidence of Trump's obstruction while memories were fresh so that future prosecutors would have it available after he leaves office.

Good piece by #Maine political science professor @ASFried: #SusanCollins told CNN she won't say whether she supports Trump's reelection b/c she's in a tight race:

“In parts of the state President Trump is very popular, in parts of the state he’s very unpopular." thread
.@ASFried: #SusanCollins's refusal to say if she'll vote for Trump contrasts sharply w/ her 2016 statement saying she thought he was unsuitable for office b/c he failed to treat people w/ respect, "an idea that should transcend politics.”

Not any more.
#SusanCollins recently said she was forthright w/ #Maine voters about Trump in '16 because she “was not up for re-election."

1>She didn't let that stop her in previous years when she was running in a pres election year.

2>Is there anything more Collins than that? @ASFried

#SusanCollins lied to constituents about #Barr's actions per the Mueller Report. It took me 6 months & more than a dozen calls/emails to get an answer to 1 yes/no Q: Do you agree w/ Mueller that Trump would be indicted for obstruction if not pres? A: No. She believes Barr.
#SusanCollins lied to constituents. She said Mueller "did not make a determination as to whether the President obstructed justice." Vol 2 was entirely devoted to laying out evidence for future charges of obstruction. Just read the Table of Contents . . .
Page 2 of Mueller Report Table of Contents. Each section is devoted to a separate obstruction charge. #SusanCollins can read. She sits on the Intelligence Comm & heard testimony for THEIR report on Russia.

@SenatorCollins lied to constituents about Mueller's conclusions.

@murphelaw 2062: That's when Trump's leading pick for his next Supreme Court nominee would retire, if she left the bench at 90.

She's #conservative Amy Coney Barrett, who describes herself as #prolife & pro-#gun. #VoteBiden heritage.org/courts/comment…
@murphelaw #McConnell has spent so much time NOT passing any of the 400+ laws that already passed the House & instead packing the federal courts w/ lifetime-appointed judges that even #SusanCollins complained she'd like to pass a bill or 2.

I'm pretty sure she wrote him a letter about it.
@murphelaw Love of my life Joe Sullivan is developmentally disabled & incredibly wise. He was sent to prison to die at 13 after a 1-day trial in which his "lawyer" presented no defense. #Police threw out the DNA evidence collected. A landmark #SCOTUS decision set him free. #VoteBiden #BLM

Jordan obviously didn't bother to read the user agreement when he signed up for @Twitter. Apparently, neither did Trump. Difference is, Jordan could lose his account for breaking Twitter's rules. Trump? He won't lose a single tweet. (thread)

#SusanCollins is on the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee. I contacted her 12+ times over 6 months to get the answer to 1 Q: Does @SenatorCollins agree w/ #Mueller that Trump could've been charged w/ multiple counts of obstruction if not president?

A: No. She agrees w/ Barr. /thread
#SusanCollins: #Mueller didn't determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

#Mueller: Vol 2 "summarizes our obstruction-of-justice investigation of the President." Evidence was gathered "while memories were fresh" b/c a "President does not have immunity after he leaves office."
#SusanCollins: #Barr was right to clear Trump.

#Mueller: "If we had confidence...that the President
clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state." This report "does not exonerate him" (Vol 2 p 2 & p 182).

.@SenatorCollins's office led a smear campaign against a h.s. student who wrote a column criticizing Collins for never holding town halls or meeting w/ protesters & for not answering voter emails. They fed false info to a GOP operative who used it in a letter to the ed.
#SusanCollins's staff retaliated vs. a teen who wrote: "Collins has proven herself unreliable to the people of #Maine. She votes against the interests of her constituents & then disrespects them when they protest."

I addressed this in a letter to ed: oneturkeyrun.blogspot.com/2018/09/senato…
#SusanCollins's staff smeared a teen because she wrote "Collins is notorious for avoiding her constituents. She refuses to hold town halls in Maine or meet with protesters. She won’t return our messages or even formulate topic-specific responses to illuminate her viewpoints."

1) Columbus Day 2018 is half time at the 2018 Mid-Term Bowl. The score is GOP 17 and Democrats 16. Let’s recap the first half.

#BlueWave #RedWave #2018MidTermElections

2) Going into the game the Democrats were riding their #BlueWave of enthusiasm. They were so confident America was tired of all the lies and sordid behavior of Coach Trump that the Democrats could win the game easily.
3) They laughed at their good fortune every time a GOP player would pledge to work closely with their coach; such easy pickings.

Regarding @SenatorCollins who took to the floor of the Senate and laid out a case in 44 minutes of the most compelling oratory since another woman Sen Margaret Chase Smith


ti.me/2IGSWEv?utm_so…
In case you don't know who Senator Margaret Chase Smith was, well Sunday is a good time to learn about #DeclarationOfConsceince and the woman who saved the Senate.
threadreaderapp.com/thread/1046853…
So we have a flood of attacks from the women of @TheDemocrats the DNCmedia and the usual suspects for daring to hold an independent thought.
Instead we have unhinged demonstrators paid for by George "Resist" Soros, @lsarsour or as she is know throughout the world, LaCucaracha
