As I told @KSRO, any impeachment discussion needs sobriety. Members of Congress are prosecutors and jurors.
As a criminal justice reformer, I’d be horrified to see a jury prejudge evidence and raise money off it. We have to live our norms not become Trump to beat him.
We need to see evidence and let it guide our path without passion or prejudice. Act as if we were the defense — would we want due process or do we want a steamroll? We have several subpoenas out there - I’m hoping we model the norms we claim Trump destroyed and act deliberately.
And as far as people wanting an “inquiry” GET REAL: that’s like being half-pregnant: you are or you’re not. Admit you want to impeach now despite getting the evidence - and make that case - but don’t occupy a mythical middle ground that media and Trump see as full impeachment.

We will never forget the disgraceful AHCA vote on May 4th, 2017 as a symbol of the GOP’s war on health care, and there’s no doubt we will continue to hold Trump and Republicans accountable for their reckless actions to take away our health care. #ProtectOurCare #MadamSpeaker 1/
Two years ago, the GOP voted to repeal our health care. If it had become law, it would have left 23 MILLION *more* Americans without coverage, raised premiums by 20 percent, and gutted protections for people with pre-existing conditions. #WeWontForget #ProtectOurCare 2/
Two years ago, on May 4, 2017, the GOP House of Representatives passed the so-called “American Health Care Act,” or #AHCA, a health repeal bill that would have cut coverage, increased costs, and eliminated protections for millions of Americans. #WeWontForget #ProtectOurCare 3/

In reaction to obvious lies in Barr’s testimony on the #MuellerReport, #MadamSpeaker came to an alarming conclusion for our country: “The attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States. That’s a crime!”

💥THREAD💥
Underscoring the seriousness of Barr's flagrant decision to lie to Congress about his handling of the Special Counsel investigation & the #MuellerReport, #MadamSpeaker called him out: "Nobody is above the law. Not the President of the United States. Not the Attorney General." ⚖️
Watching America’s top law enforcement officer perjure himself before Congress, #MadamSpeaker saw the Faustian bargain that threatens our democracy:

Barr and Republicans in Washington have become handmaidens to right-wing *special interests* and abandoned their oath of office.

#MadamSpeaker and House Dems passing #HR1 to restore integrity to government and to our elections is what we all worked for last election! 🌊💪

From @repjohnlewis to the stellar Freshman class, House Dems will never stop fighting for our democracy and #ForThePeople!

💥THREAD💥
On the Capitol steps, Rep. @ZoeLofgren exposed the great contrast between #HR1 with a Democratic majority 💥voting rights & ethics #ForThePeople💥and the last Congress, when Republicans rammed thru their #GOPTaxScam👎 – written by big corporate lobbyists – as their #1 priority!
#MadamSpeaker: “I thank all of our freshmen – every single 1 of them – for the message they delivered on the campaign trail & for the determination they have brought to this Congress… Today, we are honoring the people’s trust as we pass our transformative #HR1.”
