Is our democracy so fragile that it can not be met by the strength of our will ? We will save the republic from all enemies domestic and foreign. #WeThePeopleMarch

One woman, @amy_siskind, organized a giant march on Washington yesterday, with 60+ solidarity events nationwide, mostly run by women.

@vigil4democracy and @SoSAmerica2019 supported, among other orgs.

The media studiously ignored it. A thread. 1/x
How does America recover from a media that ignores the outrage of its population? That’s content chasing the next spectacle from a deranged emperor? #WeThePeopleMarch 2/x

Cruelty to immigrants. Emoluments. No gun control. Endless lies and constant golf. Treason. Obstruction of justice. Disregard for the law. Using DOJ to skirt the Constitution and bash enemies. Sending American military to help MBS who causes famine in Yemen & murdered Khashoggi.
Ripping off funds Congress allocated for military improvements like child care and safe housing to build a vanity campaign promise. Rolling back every pollution control Obama set down. Racist rhetoric. Making everyone the “other.” NO GUARDRAILS.
These are just some of the reasons I, along with thousands of others in 60+ places will walk today. #WeThePeopleMarch sends a message to our elected officials. None of this is okay. It is way past normal or acceptable. #WeThePeopleMarch to demand accountability from Congress!!

1/ UPDATED THREAD: I inadvertently skipped option 4 in the 7 options for how to respond to the whistleblower complaint. So let’s start again: according to sources, the IC IG is not telling the committee what’s in the complaint because the law states it must come from the DNI...
2/ So we have a few options. Option 1 is inherent contempt. That’s when the house dems have the Sergeant at Arms detain the DNI and compel him to hand over the complaint during his testimony as he will likely refuse to do so. This hasn’t been used since 1934.
3/ Option 2 is a contempt citation referral to the DoJ, but that’s headed by Bill Barr, so yeah.

Option 3 is to file suit like they did in the Mazar’s case, but rumor has it you can’t take civil judicial action in whistleblower cases. Not sure I read the law that way, though...

I wanted to say something for a few days.. now that I have had time to sit with it.. I will share.

I want to make something clear. We are all in this together. Its us vs. trump. Its not this group and that group vs. another group vs. trump.
1/
We are all in this together. We all want the same things here. We want this maddness of trump and administration to be done with. We don't want division between us. It doesn't help anything but furthering frustration.
2/
We need to look at the bigger picture here. Its not this group over that group. I can't stress that enough. Ive seen too much of that going on that I can't sit by anymore. Some resisters are giving up because of it. Let's stop this group division. Let's focus on the real problem
