There are 2 major parties in the United States. They are nothing alike.  

The Democrats taking over the majority in the House has allowed them to investigate Trump. There would be no investigations if the GOP were still the House majority. 1/18
There would be a full-blown coverup of all wrongdoing of the #Trump administration if the GOP were still the House majority.

Democrats have pursued the information they need through legal means. Acting illegally, though the Trump administration does, won't win impeachment. 2/18
Democrats have pursued the information through legal means.

The Trump administration, Barr's DOJ, & the Republicans in Congress have obstructed the investigation by every means, including turning a hearing into a bleating rant of obstructionism. #LewandowskiHearing 3/18
Being law abiding in the face of lawlessness and a lack of respect for the role of Congressional oversight does not reflect badly on the Democrats. Put the blame where it belongs -- on the Republicans. 

Because they need to go down with this administration, too. 4/18
Hearings for the public are ongoing and are being held by House Democrats. One is this week.

We don't have a GOP public now that lives in reality. After everything he's done, the GOP still supports Trump. We have to focus on getting to other people. 5/18
We have things to do. One is to talk to our Democratic reps & let them know that we support impeachment.

HOLD REPUBLICANS ACCOUNTABLE, TOO. They can't skate away. We can't let them off on this even if they won't help. TRUMP IS THEIR CREATION.

Next, we need to let our Democratic reps know that we will have their backs if they support impeachment.

During this, we need to support hearings and action towards impeachment to build support where House Reps.have not come out for it yet. We can help sway public opinion. 7/18
If impeachment goes forward & Nancy Pelosi has to force votes, the support won't be as strong as an impeachment that has wide support across the country.

An impeachment effort in the House will be much more effective and positive in the public eye with maximum support. 8/18
Now, the idea that the GOP will remove Trump in the Senate is a sheer impossibility. They've stood complicit with Trump through everything.

They don't care about what we think or losing votes.

It's not a reason not to impeach, but is reality. 9/18
For those people who want to know what Nancy Pelosi's plan is, I would
say that it is not common practice to let your adversaries know what your plans are before you take them down.

I'm not saying I know her plan. But, we also can't say we know she doesn't have one.
10/18
For those that say the bills passed by the House are meaningless, I would say we have a vision of what the world could be like with a real Senate and President who would take them up.

They are important to the people affected & are ways to show Dems have a real agenda. 11/18
For those who are saying they will stay home from the 2020 elections if Trump is not impeached right now, I hope you are fake or exaggerating.

The candidates for President, Senate, all House seats, & local elections don't deserve to carry that weight. We still must #Vote 12/18
I've heard some people say that they don't care if we don't maintain a House majority if impeachment causes that (I don't think it wlll) but that is a dangerous take.

We need to maintain our Democratic House majority going forward for our next Democratic President. 13/18
Division accounts.

Be wary. They try to sound sympathetic with you at first, but then tell you that Dems are weak or our elections are so compromised that it's not worth voting.

Neither of those are true & are designed to cause Dem infighting and to depress the vote. 14/18
Since we cannot count on the GOP to remove Trump, we must be extra-committed to doing everything we can to GOTV.

Yes, we know there is voter suppression, election interference, & that our elections need to be protected. We will have a lot of work to do to overcome that. 15/18
I also wish it were true that a sooner start to impeachment would slow Trump down, but this administration has shown lawlessness beyond compare.

Congress should take significant action against those who won't cooperate, but I don't expect this GOP to change. 16/18
But I'm not deterred.
I'm not defeated.
WE'RE NOT DEFEATED. We can win this whether Trump is impeached or not.

Get EVERYONE registered to vote who can, & #VoteBlue2019 & #VoteBlue2020.

Keep your heads UP.
We're going to get through the finish line if we stick together. 17/18
Last but not least, we can't stop talking about the crimes of this administration. That's where we can affect the narrative and that's the part Trump and the GOP want us to ignore.

Talk about the crime. And stick together. 18/18 #MondayMotivation
