Schumer and Pelosi should resign their leadership positions. Trump is effectively above the law and they are busy working with him on infrastructure week. House Dems have the power to #impeach and IT DOES NOT MATTER if the Senate won't convict.
How long are we going to tolerate the Democratic Party's passivity, the only institution big enough to protect democracy? How long?
Remember when the blue wave ensured that Dems would have subpoena power? But what good is that power if the GOP simply disregards the rule of law??
Until we recognize the magnitude of the threat, we will continue to lose ground.
Blatant violations of the emoluments clause.
Incitement of violence against the press in subversion of the First Amendment.
Kidnapping migrant babies.
Fanning the flames of racism and emboldening Nazis.
ALL ARE #IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES.
As some of us anticipated, the post-#Mueller period would be the most perilous for our democracy. Trump and his GOP cohorts are consolidating power, ignoring subpoenas and scoffing at the rule of law.
This process only goes in one direction: WORSE.
