“You don’t have to take it to the full house. Only the judiciary voted to move forward with [Nixon] impeachment. You don’t shelve it. It’s on the table”—Hillary Clinton

Let’s talk about impeachment…

A Thread


"There were multiple systematic efforts to interfere in our election. That allegation deserves the attention of every American"

Those saying “vote them out in 2020" are willfully ignoring how Russia & GOP is guaranteeing 2020 elections are not free & fair
✅Incumbent Scott Morrison wins despite all polls in Australia
✅Incumbent Narendra Modi wins despite all polls in India
✅Far right–wing France’s Le Pen & Italy’s Matteo win EU elections
⚠️Incumbent Donald Trump…

Trump WILL win 2020 unless Dems impeach
Mueller gave a path for Congress to commence impeachment

A special counselor doesn’t outline
—10 Obstruction cases
—Claim it does NOT Exonerate
—Impeachment procedures

…in a 448 pg report & publicly request Congress uphold the Constitution w/out reason


B4 Watergate hearings:
For impeach—19%

After hearings:
For impeach—57%

Listen to the experts & those who were there (@JillWineBanks)

When impeachment hearings commenced, people paid attention & GOP changed their minds.

Support for impeaching Trump IS increasing in polls:

Trump 2017–2/19
For Impeach—47% Avg

March 2019: Pelosi announces “he isn’t worth it” to impeach

April 2019:
For impeach—34%

May 2019:
For impeach—45%

Dems need to uphold their own sworn oaths, hold hearings & ignore threats from the Trump & the GOP.

In 1973–74:
—Only 19% of Americans were for impeachment(vs 45% currently for Trump)
—The GOP were just as vocal against hearings on Nixon

…right up until the ‘smoking gun’ tape.
Fear of the 2020 outcome, creating division & firing up Trump’s cult base is not only evading oaths of office to impeach, it’s impotence.

FTR, his cult:
—Has been calling for civil WAR for over a year
—Praises his breaking Rule of Law
—Sides with adversary Russia over Democrats
Dem leadership seems more worried about Trump’s base than their own. By avoiding impeachment, they’re dividing their own party

🔹72% of Dems & 51% Ind want impeachment
🔹45% of Americans want it
🔹50 Members of Congress want it👉nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1…

🗣Congress, it’s go time.
He’s spent his entire life litigating & stonewalling—He’ll continue to obstruct justice & claim executive privilege.

Trump/GOP are already gaslighting a nation, claiming he’s exonerated & the case is closed.

They’re using Dems reluctance to impeach in his campaign for 2020.
#ImpeachmentHearings give Congress more power. Congress isn’t limited by time constraints in line of questioning.
They’re limited in House/Senate hearings.
We’re not seeing hearings bc subpoenas have failed & will continue to fail as Trump further obstructs & covers-up his crimes
This isn’t a time to play electoral politics. Despite an obstructionist GOP, it’s only thru impeachment hearings Dems have everything to GAIN.

By perfectly executing excellent, undeniable cases against Trump, Dems have the POWER to bring a nation on board & overwhelm Senate GOP
A House that won’t begin #ImpeachmentHearings unless it’s guaranteed a Senate will convict, is violating their own sworn oaths, impotence & politicking.

Telling him he won’t be impeached bc it’s a fool’s errand is authorizing a lawless POTUS to continue bringing autocratic rule.
This isn’t political or tactical—It’s Congress’ sworn legal duty to impeach a lawless POTUS

House Dems subpoenas have repeatedly failed— even to receive the full Mueller report 2+ mos later.

This route of civility is Not working.

There is no civility in a fight against tyranny
The framers of our constitution foresaw Trump. What they didn’t see was an enabling Congress that’s either kompromised or party over country.

We Are in a constitutional crisis.
Not impeaching establishes checks, balances & democracy doesn’t exist anymore.
We’ve already lost if we don’t fight.

Win or lose, history MUST record for future generations that We the People & Dems stood up to a tyrant’s fascist attempt to takeover the US.

The democracy of our country is at stake.

This isn’t hyperbole—it IS dire

Post Script:
For 2 mos #ImpeachTheMF was trending til Pelosi’s announcement

Like a lot of you, I spent months GOTV, canvassing & running voter registration—A full time job I did for free& personally sacrificed for bc I believed if we could take the house he’d be held accountable
This isn’t bashing Dem leadership, it’s dissent & I agree—there’s things they know that we don’t.

But announcing impeachment is off when faced w/tyranny?

I dissent to accepting ineffective wait & see, defeatist, groupthink mentality.

Dissent IS patriotic—despite politics.
