After the passing of any Articles of impeachment by the House of Representatives, the scenario that Mitch McConnell will refuse to allow a trial in the Senate is obviously very real. You can bank on it. 1/10
Mitch McConnell has made a despicable career of obstructionism & wrongly breaking Senate norms.

There is reason to proceed with awareness of McConnell's tactics & not rush impeachment. The longer we have, the more wrongdoing we can uncover & sway more public opinion.
2/10
If McConnell refuses a trial, the next step the House could take would be suing the Senate, which would end up at the SCOTUS.

We need to ensure the GOP bears the weight of refusing to hold lawlessness accountable. DT is already using impeachment to try & rally his dupes. 3/10

{THREAD} Today's #tbt comes from almost two years ago in Virginia's House District 94 -- a tale of an election, recounts, a tainted ballot and a random drawing which affected the shape of the VA legislature.

If anything -- the message is REGISTER AND VOTE!

(1/x)
VA's HD94 is located in Newport News and surrounding areas. Delegate David Yancey has held the seat since 2012 and is in his 4th term. He was challenged in 2013 by Democrat Robert Farinholt, Jr. in a close race with a difference of only about 500 votes. (2/x)
In 2015, School Board member @shelly_simonds came to the table as the Democratic contender. She had been a teacher and an environmental activist and sought to prioritize education, the environment, healthcare, criminal justice reform & protecting women's reproductive rights.(3/x)

Trump was elected with the support of roughly 1/4 of all eligible voters (almost half of all eligible voters didn't even vote that year.)

If we really want change, we have to get involved & help others see the importance of voting. We must expand the vote.

.@swingleft has focused in past elections on key swing districts to flip them #redtoblue

Now they're focusing on 11 states to win the Senate, the White House, & #redistricting for Democrats.

We can all help whether we're in those states or not. 2/7

After the Supreme Court refused to rule on state gerrymandering cases, we have to flip state legislatures blue to get fair maps. Grassroots is focusing in these key 9 states. Help from anywhere. #EndGerrymandering #FridayFeeling #BlueWave 3/7

THREAD:

Trump on January 20, 2017, said, "Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come."

What followed that has been two years of Trump's lies to the American people and his failure to hear their voices raised in protest.
After a campaign full of lies and empty promises to the American people, Trump began an unrelenting attack on our constitution and our established laws. He claimed he would be "transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People."
Yet the voice of the America MAJORITY has called out repeatedly the actions Trump has taken since he entered the office. The day after he took office millions of American women and men poured into the streets in protest.

1/ There’s this thing in stats called "Type I vs. Type II" error. Type I error is referred to as the “false positive” and Type II the “false negative”. In law, that translates to the innocent man being convicted (Type I) vs. the guilty man going free (Type II). @letamericavote
2/ Our judicial preference for Type II error is embodied in the concept of “innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt”. As horrible as it is, most would rather see a serial killer go free than an innocent man be put to death.
3/ I return to this concept over & over when I read abt voting restrictions, which necessarily weigh the possibility of a fraudulent vote vs. a legitimate voter being disenfranchised. IOW: Is it better to disenfranchise a legal voter (Type I) or allow an illegal vote (Type II)?

Brett Kavanaugh's opening statement makes him seem overtly political. Not a good look for a Judge hoping to be a Supreme Court Justice. #KavanaughHearings
HOLY SHIT!!! Did Brett Kavanaugh really just say this is a political hit by the Clintons?!! Really?! The GOP playbook is so predictable, and getting old, when in doubt blame the email lady. #KavanaughHearings
I cant even pay attention to the rest of Brett Kavanaugh's opening statement I am still dumbfounded that Kavanaugh really just said that this is a plot by the Clintons. How, why, what? How could HRC have orchestrated this? Its just utterly ridiculous. #KavanaughHearings

Read Mangy Jay #magi_jay's awesome thread:

1/ I think some political journalists are fundamentally misreading leftward shifts in the Democratic party; namely, I think many are over-attributing any leftward shift to Bernie Sanders.

Joyce Vance, a former federal prosecutor, says that there is a good chance that Robert Mueller will name President Trump an unindicted co-conspirator in the Russia investigation. That makes sense as it is unclear whether you can indicte a sitting President msnbc.com/the-last-word/…
In my own legal opinion you cannot indicte a sitting President. The President must first be removed from office. There is a split in the legal community about this. But to put it simply a president cannot perform his constitutionally mandated responsibilities if he is beholden
..to the judiciary, i.e. a President who is subject to criminal charges would be unable to fulfill his duties say negotiating with a foreign leader at an international summit if he is convicted and imprisoned or put on probation.
