1/ Startling video just released by #AlQaeda #Yemen includes leader #Batarfi (supposedly captured in Oct) & looks genuinely new. Opens with dramatic footage of storming of US Congress on 6 Jan. Delights in US domestic strife. Hopes this heralds 🇺🇸 downfall
#TrumpImpeachment #AQAP
2/ In new #AQAP #Yemen video, #Batarfi mentions (at 7.55 minutes) that the USA has suffered over 400,000 deaths from #Covid19. This dates the recording to AFTER 15 January 2021 (so well after Batarfi's supposed capture in October 2020). True to form, he includes a long #poem...
3/ Wait! #Batarfi's spoken #Arabic differs slightly from the English subtitle. He says حال so could be 400,000 cases not "perished" as per transcript. This would date Batarfi's speech footage to April2020. That fits with our last *new* footage from him: his Ramadan lecture series

There has been explosion this week of political #StreetArt in the EaSt Village. Here are a few of my favorites:

This one from BastardBot is a personal Favorite.

Makes hum: Your so Unpopular, so very very Unpopular...

A wheat-paste poster by DeGrupo on the LES pretty much sums up locals feelings about MAGA & Trump succinctly.

Trump is CACA.

I completely agree with this mural by an unknown artist. To bad Pence is a complete idiot with Stockholm syndrome that he can't even act against the man who tried to have mi killed.

As a #libertarian who watched congressional Republicans attempt to remove a Democratic president (1998-99) and congressional Democrats try to remove a Republican president (2019-20), what strikes me the most about these two episodes is how similar they are. #TrumpImpeachment
I witnessed Clinton’s trial up close, as a staffer for the leadership of the US Senate. Clinton clearly committed perjury, suborned perjury, and merited removal. @jacobsullum made the best case, though I can’t now locate the column. Similar column:….
Yet the facts didn’t matter to Senate Democrats. They just kept repeating it was only sex (it wasn’t), Republicans were being partisan (immaterial), and Clinton’s actions didn’t rise to the level of removal (they did). Whatever they needed to say to keep their guy in power.

It all leads back to self-interest over country.
So I know everyone is pretty much checked out about impeachment but this is a really important moment in the history of this country. For only the third time in United States history, a president has been impeached.
It’s worth reviewing history. In the late 1860s President Andrew Johnson was impeached for violating a law in order to remove a cabinet member for protecting blacks from violence for exercising their suffrage rights. Self-interest (hatred of blacks) over the country.
He was acquitted by the Senate by one vote.
In the late 1990s, President Bill Clinton was impeached for lying under oath at a deposition about his extramarital affair with Monica Lewinski. Self-interest (hiding an affair) over the country. He was easily acquitted by the Senate

CONGRESS has I M P E A C H E D Donald J. Trump
Dec 18, 2019 Washington DC 🇺🇲 U.S. House of Representatives
Agreed to The Impeachment Resolution Article I of the 45th U.S. PRESIDENT H RES 755.
After Hours of 'Debate' between U.S. House of Representatives by both Democrats & Republicans, it was sad to watch the partisanship by the Republicans who all mostly used Trump & FOX talking pnts, not based in facts presented in both Intelligence & Judicial Committee Reports.

Today we need to ask how anyone could defend Trump after all he's done! Clearly, Republicans would impeach a Democrat who did far less(see Bill Clinton)

He's extorted Ukraine with taxpayer money!

Happy #ImpeachmentDay, everyone! Savour the day, the memories, the reactions, the feeling, and, most importantly, the removal of one of the most vile, most corrupt goblins to have slithered into modern politics. Good riddance.
I sort of admire the persistence of mad Republicans insisting it's a partisan and laughable abuse of power to impeach a man that has evidence stacked against him. They keep denying crimes. They keep denying a quid pro quo. They keep mentioning the Bidens. Incredible and pathetic.
Bonkers how one side is stating the evidence for a quid pro quo (because there is) and reason for impeachment for crimes (there is). Then there's one unhinged side saying there was no quid pro quo or evidence. Imagine being this complicit in denying simple, clear evidence.

As democrats unveil two articles of impeachment this morning, all speakers from Pelosi to Nadler to Schiff continue to use words like solemn, reluctant to describe the process that led them to today #NexstarDC Image
“The argument why don’t you just wait amounts to this: why don’t you just let him cheat in one more election.” -Adam Schiff #NexstarDC Image
“Our oath means something to us.” -Schiff. Once again we heard the statement that the facts are uncontested. Seemed to be a prominent theme in the last two #ImpeachmentHearings & from interviews i had w/ Dems afterwards #impeachment #NexstarDC Image

JORDAN: “There’s one witness they won’t bring in front of us..they won’t bring in front of the American people”

WELCH: “I’d be glad to have the person who started it all, come in & testify. Trump is welcome to take a seat right there”
Efforts to cover up show "consciousness of guilt" which is legal evidence establishing "corrupt intent."
That will snatch the news cycles tonight, am I right?? LUV it!!

News Analysis 🔎 The dangers facing @SpeakerPelosi and her party are the multiple “what ifs” that could make efforts to #ImpeachTrump the worst thing that can happen for the Democrats.

We decided to examine many of those "what ifs." (Thread 👇)…
@SpeakerPelosi What if 🔎 @SpeakerPelosi’s Democrats are mistaken in gambling that, after they #ImpeachTrump, the majority Americans will reward them with full control of both chambers of Congress and the White House in the #2020Election?
The problem for everybody involved in a #TrumpImpeachment is nobody can know with assurance what effect it will have electorally because there are so many more “what ifs” that could, to a greater or lesser degree, shape the final outcome in 2020.

When you read the whistleblower complaint, it becomes clear what Trump’s endgame was.
He and Putin wanted to plant a false narrative that would benefit them both.
Cherry picking existing facts to prop up the fake narrative, they were concocting a story that would have high rewards for both men: Trump’s re-election and the turning of US/global opinion against Ukraine.

@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation Sarah Kendzior: If nothing was done in 2016, they're going to do it again. You could have a calendar-a-day of impeachable offenses & still have leftovers. Caging children, emoluments violations, & sooo many more.

@sarahkendzior @gaslitnation Sarah Kendzior: The purpose of impeachment is to educate the American people about Trump's crimes. The problem is, Trump will still be in office. I'm not even sure he'd leave if he loses the 2020 election.

Here's all you need to know about this summary:

Trump told Zelensky he would give Ukraine Javelins (weapons) if Ukraine helped him politically.

That's impeachable. Period.

#trumpimpeachment #impeachmentparty #rudycolludy #ukrainetranscript
Here's the memo in full.
It implicates Barr and Giuliani as well.

Don't let anyone tell you this is a nothingburger.
This is 100% impeachable.

And we haven't even seen the whistleblower report yet.
