1) Trump is a felon
2) He committed treason
3) His crimes are impeachable
4) If he wasn't president, he would be indicted
Q: What should Democrats do?
A: It's not as simple as it seems.
The rest of you, hear me out. This isn't a simple question, and a misstep would be fatal--not only for Democrats, but for democracy.
The House enacts Articles of Impeachment. GOP Senators don't convict because of course they wouldn't, GOPers portray this as exoneration--Trump is innocent and Democrats are blind partisans. Trump wins a second term and fascists retake the House.
Mueller is assembling an airtight case for everything he does. Every indictment, every guilty plea, *every one* of the all-too-seldom statements his office makes, are incontrovertible.
He has already concluded that Trump conspired with Michael Cohen to violate federal campaign finance laws. That's a felony.
But Mueller hasn't even named Trump in his court filings. It's all about "Individual 1". Why?
Because there is far more coming. That is obvious.
Mueller has revealed the Trump Campaign negotiated with Russia on a Trump Tower Moscow through most of 2016, a deal that would have netted Trump hundreds of millions of dollars.
That's what the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 was about--asking Don Jr, Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner to commit to lift sanctions ...
*Everyone* in the Trump Organization has lied UNDER OATH about EVERY aspect of this.
With the full knowledge of Trump's transition team.
Including Mike Pence, who was in charge of the transition.
Ryan and McConnell are complicit in Trump's treason.
Any why hasn't Muller spelled it all out yet? There's a reason for that.
Nor has he ever, in any of the documents, NAMED Trump or his relatives.
Because there is more. There is more proof, there is more evidence, and there are more crimes.
--on THAT DAY--
--the investigation will be shut down.
Because there are more crimes to be revealed. More evidence. More proof.
America needs the whole story, and we don't yet have it.
So how does this relate to the incoming Democratic House?
We NEED this data. The world needs it. We need it ALL to save democracy.
--on that very day--
--it all ends.
Because the Senate will never take up the question.
Because Mitch McConnell is a co-conspirator, and he won't allow it.
I don't know when that will be. It doesn't matter.
We spent two years engineering a retake of the House.
We have to continue that effort.
We need TWENTY of them to remove Trump. We must remove Pence, too.
How likely is that?
We need to sway a bunch of GOPer House members, too, because...
We've already stymied the Fascist agenda by retaking the House. Let's not fucking blow this.
