OWN YOUR #IMPEACHMENT WORDS, GOP!

"The President can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous." - #MikePence
OWN IT, @GOP!

“[The President] doesn’t have to say, ‘Go lie for me,’ to be a crime. You don’t have to say, ‘Let’s obstruct justice’ for it to be a crime. You judge people on their conduct, not magic phrases.” - #LindseyGraham
@GOP OWN IT, @GOP!

"The true tragedy in this case is the collapse of the President's moral authority ... there is the issue of the abuse of power and authority. This White House has perfected the art of stonewalling around the truth." - #ChuckGrassley

THE CLINTON IMPEACHMENT STANDARD

The GOP set its own #impeachment standard in 1998. Let's make things simple and apply it to Trump.

#MitchMcConnell:

"Time after time, the President came to a fork in the road. Time after time, he chose the path of lies and lawlessness."
#LindseyGraham:

“[The President] doesn’t have to say, ‘Go lie for me,’ to be a crime. You don’t have to say, ‘Let’s obstruct justice’ for it to be a crime. You judge people on their conduct, not magic phrases.”
#MikePence:

"The President can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous."

DEM LEADERS

Here's how you do #impeachment:

Compile every statement by GOP lawmakers during Clinton's impeachment.

Call only Republicans to testify and confront them with their statements.

Make this a referendum on GOP values.

BE THE PARTY THAT DEFENDS THE RULE OF LAW
I'll start. This is @senatemajldr in 1999:

"Time after time, the President came to a fork in the road. Time after time, he had the opportunity to choose the noble and honorable path. Time after time, he chose the path of lies and lawlessness..."
Here's @LindseyGrahamSC:

“[Clinton] doesn’t have to say, ‘Go lie for me,’ to be a crime,” Graham said at the time. “You don’t have to say, ‘Let’s obstruct justice’ for it to be a crime. You judge people on their conduct, not magic phrases.”
