💥BOMBSHELL >> Trump asked Acting AG Whitaker to put US Attorney Berman in charge of Cohen investigation—despite recusal. Just one DROP in the bucket of Trump’s wide-ranging obstruction of justice and abuse of power. New @Nytimes report @MarkMazzettiNYT @maggieNYT #IMPEACHMENT
New bombshells here: Intimidation, Pressure and Humiliation: Inside Trump’s Two-Year War on the Investigations Encircling Him - The New York Times nytimes.com/2019/02/19/us/… #TrumpRussia #AbuseOfPower #ObstructionOfJustice #Impeachment
Whitaker said part of his role at the Justice Dept was to “jump on a grenade” for the president. Looks like he'll get his chance.
⬇︎Whitaker seems to have committed perjury when he testified to Congress that Trump never pressured him about the investigations involving DJT. 🎻

Twitter is filled with lying sacks today. @AlanDersh did not say, at some level of high generality, that the 25th Amendment violates the #Constitution. I'm linking the video because I had to go watch to see exactly what was said.

As you can plainly hear, @alandersh made the point that the proposed invocation by #mccable, #rosenstein, and others, of the 25th Amendment would be unconstitutional. And he was correct in that assertion.
The 25th Amendment is not the "we are unhappy with you" amendment to the Constitution. It is the "unable to perform the duties of the office" due to disability amendment.

1) #Whitaker to testify before the #HouseJudiciaryCommittee today, 8th Feb.
With #JerryNadler as Chairman, we once again have visible proof of just how bazaar, how #AliceInWonderland like, the structure of critical gov't committee's has become. Same playbook is now in use by

3) Transportation's #PeterDeFazio are all names that need 2be watched. They are all engaged in an #AntiAmerican agenda, with its core act not relating 2their appointed positions, but rather 2the #Dem Obstructionist efforts 2throttle forward momentum & a coup by #Impeachment.

Speaker Pelosi: "There was a deliberate, coordinated effort by top Trump campaign officials to subvert the will of the American people during the 2016 Election."

True.

Not to mention self-admitted obstruction by Trump in firing Comey and Sessions.

So why wait for #Mueller?
I see no reason House Dems can't begin the #impeachment process whether or not the Senate ultimately convicts. The rule of law should be upheld no matter what we think the ultimate outcome is. Waiting for #Mueller has allowed Trump/GOP to keep wreaking havoc on the country.
Can someone please explain the argument: "House Dems shouldn't impeach Trump because the Senate won't convict."

Isn't that effectively saying never impeach Trump?

If Dems don't stand for the rule of law against this treacherous gang of GOP leaders, what message does that send?

In this article, @Sulliview argues that "talk of impeachment, all-but-taboo in Big Media’s coverage of Trump, [has] moved from the margins into the mainstream." She attributes that development mainly to a prominent essay in @TheAtlantic. That's not right. washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/styl…
There's no denying that #impeachment talk has accelerated over the past few months. But I'm not convinced that this past week was really such a Rubicon when considered in broader perspective, or that a handful of well-argued essays in liberal magazines are the drivers of change.
For starters, there's been no shortage of impeachment talk in mainstream publications since Trump took office. I've gathered quite a few such articles in this @ShallTakeCare database, which includes analyses tracing back to before Trump even took office. takecareblog.com/blog/impeachin…

Get the popcorn, Friday & Saturday will deliver on the MAGA promise. POTUS knows he must clean house (gov't) in order to 'free up' and demonstrate who has authority in order to pass important legislation. This was always the priority.

‼️“Make it Happen!”—Trump Directed Attorney Michael Cohen To Lie To Congress About The Moscow Tower Project & Visit…even as Trump told the public he had no business deals with Russia. Ivanka & Don Jr received regular detailed updates from Cohen on deal. buzzfeednews.com/article/jasonl…
After the election, Trump personally & explicitly instructed Cohen to lie about Moscow Tower negotiations ending early in order to obscure Trump’s involvement. Mueller has witness testimony & company emails, text messages, other docs.

This is a bombshell. @TheAtlantic calls for #Trump impeachment. Because he has waged, "an attack on the very foundations of America’s constitutional democracy."

"#Impeachment is a process, not an outcome, a rule-bound procedure..."

Are you spending every day reacting crazily to every stupid and idiotic thing that #MSMNews reports? Let me say it again. Voting America does not even know who #OhCrazyGirlCortex is. They don’t watch CNN or MSDNC. I haven’t watched #MSMCableNews since October 28. I am windswept.
The next time a lunatic Dem suggests the notion of #Impeachment remind him that the election is next year. If they want to remove a duly-elected president why don’t they do with the old fashion way by running a candidate who is better and who wins. And watch their expression.
Stop responding viscerally to every stupid story the mainstream media news provides. Devote your time to, of all things, alternative media and American and world history. Recognizing history’s reemergence is critical for any sentient and American voter.

THREAD - STUNNING ANONYMOUS @nytimes OP-ED FROM INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE.

nytimes.com/2018/09/05/opi…

This op-ed is going to make waves, so I'd like to provide context.

First, any GOP lawmaker reading it should demand #impeachment, but THEY WON'T. Because they're all in with Trump.
Second - don't fall for the "integrity," "goodness" or "morality" of whoever wrote this. Just read the lines below to understand these are people who agree with kidnapping and caging babies.
Third - these self-styled patriots know they have a remedy but refuse to invoke it, which makes them 100% complicit in every single thing Trump says or does.

Josh Dawsey is talking to @donlemon right now on @CNN talking about the turmoil in the White House over people trying to explain to Trump that the Dems could re-take the House in November and thus #impeachment could be on the table. For real. Read his new piece here ↘️↘️↘️
OMG!!!

These details are stunning.
The entire White House counsel’s office has been eviscerated.
4 out of 5 deputies, out.
And now Trump has tweet-fired #DonMcGahn, who everyone agrees is the last bolster against madness.

.@BBC reporting on "an historic day in American politics." The presenter notes "at a rally last night, the President led a chant of #LockHerUp, referring to Hillary Clinton, but it's Trump's closest people who are going to jail."

The presenter sounds incredulous about the chant.
18mins into the @BBCWorld broadcast, still talking about Trump, #Manafort, #MichaelCohen and #LannyDavis.

Now there is a US constitutional scholar discussing how the president can indeed be indicted and how there is "grounds for impeachment" after yesterday's events.

Telling.

Davis told @maddow last night that Cohen has "Knowledge on certain subjects" that he would be willing to transmit to Mueller. Davis said Cohen's knowledge "is...

Seine Skandale holen ihn endlich ein: Donald #Trump wird von seinem Ex-Anwalt Michael #Cohen bezichtigt, mit ihm illegale Wahlkampffinanzierungen begangen zu haben. Ist das nun der Anfang vom Ende des US-Präsidenten? Nope. [THREAD] #CohenPleaDeal #TrumpRussia
To recap: #Cohen bekennt sich schuldig, dem Ex-Playmate Karen #McDougal und der Pornodarstellerin #StormyDaniels auf illegale Weise Schweigegeld gezahlt zu haben. „In coordination with and at the direction of [#Trump]" und „to influence the election“. huffingtonpost.de/entry/donald-t…
#Cohen impliziert #Trump also in seinen Verbrechen. Das ist extrem brisant – und gewagt. Denn zwar hat Cohen ein Tape, in dem er die Zahlungen mit Trump diskutiert. Doch das gibt nicht 100% Aufschluss darüber, ob Trump illegale Finanzierungen bewilligte. huffingtonpost.de/entry/ex-anwal…

In September 2016, @KellyannePolls told Trump he couldn't get elected if he kept claiming @POTUS44 was born in Kenya--as he had 67x on Twitter over 6yrs. So Trump gave a press conference saying he believed Obama was born in the US, gave no explanation, took no questions.

1/
Trump has since walked that back.

Remember at the Inaugural luncheon where he paid tribute to @HillaryClinton and all she has done for America and asked those in attendance to applaud her?

Trump soon walked that back as well & has directed his DOJ to investigate her again.
2/
Everyone knows Trump lies, that he has always lied and that he believes his own lies.

Trump lied repeatedly at the #HelsinkiSummit presser. He also told his truth--that Russia didn't attack our 2016 election.There is videotape of the live broadcast which the whole world saw.

#Putin starts with rare words in English to "Donald": Ok, Shall we start? Then says a new era of cooperation is at hand. "There's no reason US-Russia relations should be complicated. On 'so-called' interference, the Russian state has never interfered in US election & never will"
Trump just slammed "obstructive" Democrats and the press in prepared remarks at press conference with Putin at #HelsinkiSummit
Q: This morning you blamed the US. Do you blame Russia for anything?
Trump: Yes, I blame both countries. Mueller probe is ridiculous. There was no collusion. There was nobody to collude w.

So Trump uses false equivalence to let Russia off the hook for attacking his own country😡

Trump’s lawyers have **for months** tried to prevent Mueller from trying to force Trump to answer questions = #subpoena‼️ 1/

nytimes.com/2018/06/02/us/…
In a letter to Mueller, Trump's lawyers claim that Trump "cannot be compelled" to testify.🙄

WRONG! Mueller can #subpoena Trump to FORCE him to testify **in front of the grand jury**.😎

Trump's lawyers CAN be w/him for an interview, but NOT for grand jury testimony.😉 2/
Trump's lawyers also claim Trump "could not possibly have committed obstruction b/c he has unfettered authority over all federal investigations."🤨

Yeah, just ask Nixon about that‼️3/
