#Kamala is now up on #TRMS. Rachel asks her what she means by "sham process". She discusses how 1000s of pages were dumped at the time 11th hour, credible allegations were not investigated, and #ChristineBlaseyFord was treated like a criminal when she had nothing to gain.
#Kamala reminds us the White House was "orchestrating" and "curating" what the Judiciary committee could learn about #Kavanaugh. "The process by which he was confirmed has caused a crisis of confidence". Impeachment is necessary.

Last night’s #DemocraticDebate was better than the previous efforts, as the moderators were more up to the task. Here are my notes:

1/ Kamala won this thing. After watching the three forerunners trade barbs about health care policy arcana—why not just announce, “America, turn to the football game?”—she made the operative point on the issue: Dems WANT people to have healthcare. Trump wants to take it away.
2/ I wish Kamala, or anyone, had gone even further and mentioned the time Trump denied healthcare coverage to his nephew, a child with a serious medical condition, as a way of punishing his brother for perceived disloyalty.

"There is a piece that is about restructuring the system in a way that we actually create accountability... creating standards that are for prosecutors & police officers."

Mentions violation of trust should have consequences #Kamala2020
@KamalaHarris @angela_rye @dwatkinsworld @DrPhilGoff @JamiraBurley "For too long we have put the onus on the community... to work on how the reciprocal relationship of trust should occur instead of putting the responsibility equally, if not more, on those who have actually create the distrust in terms of how the system works." @KamalaHarris

Despite the obvious disaster Trump has made of the country—by design!—I feel as optimistic about the future as I have at any point since Manafort got arrested. Let’s talk about the reasons for my, ahem, audacious hope.

1/ First, Congress comes back on Monday refreshed, refocused, ready to seal the deal. The break was not frivolous. It was the legislative equivalent of Steve Kerr resting the starters the first few minutes of the fourth quarter before rolling out the Lineup of Death.
2/ While it may appear that the Dem House has “done nothing,” the opposite is true. The i’s are dotted, the t’s are crossed, the jurisprudential ducks are in a row. Nadler as much as announced that impeachment was on. Schiff is talking about Deutsche Bank & financial crimes.

#KamalasPlan pledges in partnership with the disability community, to "build an America that lives up to the promise" of the A.D.A.
✅Establish a grant program for states to help redesign business models/strategies to increase employment of ppl with disabilities
✅ Expand the vocational rehabilitation system at the Department of Education so that it:
✅Removes barriers hindering ppl w/disabilities from getting jobs
✅Covers a wider range of services
✅Increases funding for workplace accommodations,adaptive tech, devices,etc

Thread: This gut wrenching article really underscores the urgency & importance of selecting a Dem candidate who will tangibly improve the lives of working Americans. Several policies in #Kamala's #3AMAgenda will tangibly make a difference for families like the Goodman family.
First issue: Rents are too high. Ms. Goodman makes $9/hr but her rent was $950/month. That is 66% of her income. #KamalasPlan called the Rent Relief Act will provide a tax credit caps rent & utilities at 30%. Non-partisan analysis determined RRA will lift 7.8M ppl out of poverty
Second issue: Stagnant wages
#Kamala supports raising the min wage to $15/hr but additionally, #KamalasPlan the LIFT Act would put $6,000/yr ($500 can be accessed monthly) in Ms. Goodman's pockets. Non-partisan analysis determined the LIFT Act lifts 9.6M ppl out of poverty

#KamalaHarris was a trailblazer as a first in each office she held- SF DA, CA AG, US Senator. BUT let's keep it in perspective that each of these roles were in institutions that existed for over 140+yrs. Change is hard yet #Kamala accomplished a great deal

What if #KamalaHarris was Prez when @issarae started #Insecure? With #KamalasPlan there woulda been some changes for our favs. Lawrence would've gotten his business off the ground quicker with #Kamala's $12B Black entrepreneurship grant so Issa would've never had reason to cheat.
If Issa never cheated on Lawrence's unemployed ass, we could've gotten the happy ending for both of them we're still waiting for after 3 seasons. Wedding bells not lonely blue shirts 😢
We don't let Issa's cheating define her though...there would've been a LOT good things for her with #KamalasPlan. Like...she coulda still worked with kids as a teacher making $13,500 more a yr thanks to #Kamala's teacher pay plan instead of feeling trapped &broke at We Got Y'all.

I want a GenX president. I want her to be cool, smart, funny. I want her to kick ass and take names and share popcorn with her rivals because she has class. I want her to rock sneakers and blazers & have a husband so besotted he charge on stage to fight her corner. #KamalaHarris
I want a president that watched the Muppet Show and In Living Color and The Electric Company. Who loves a Tribe Called Quest and cooks a mean roast chicken and is a kick ass auntie and sister and step mother and lawyer and friend. I want a president who can dance.
I want a president from my generation who calls her tour bus ‘tricked out’. Who reads the Mueller report like the legal brief it is and sees how to prosecute the crimes detailed within. Who knows that when criminals are abusing people we need A GOOD COP to save the day. #Kamala

#RepresentationMatters and what @KamalaHarris has advocated for and accomplished in places NO other Black women (SF DA/CA AG) or few (2nd Senator) have occupied offers proof of why we need to be on the inside. #Kamala2020 #KHive
Kamala being in the Senate meant the FIRST ever bill introduced to specifically tackle the Black maternal health crisis.
Kamala being elected California AG meant the creation of theBureau of Children's Justice, Racial & Identity Profiling Advisory Board, Open Justice Initiative, eCrime Unit, Mortgage Fraud Strike Force, Division of Recidivism Reduction & Re-Entry, etc

I'm doing another tweet about impeachment bc there is a campaign of disinformation out there. Don't listen to bullsh*t. #FollowTheFacts These ppl are having a go at Democrats on purpose.
Maybe we shouldn't be freaking out about impeachment & let judiciary do their jobs by making sure they have all the evidence. I'm supporting these Dems that are doing working diligently to get him out of office in whatever form that takes. Exactly what does impeachment do?
#FollowTheFacts If the Senate fails to convict, then Trump will have been impeached but not removed. Do we have a two-thirds majority? No, we do not. Yet. He will be acquitted. Trump will be victorious & everything uncovered is gone. I can hear it now. "witch hunt"
