After the passing of any Articles of impeachment by the House of Representatives, the scenario that Mitch McConnell will refuse to allow a trial in the Senate is obviously very real. You can bank on it. 1/10
Mitch McConnell has made a despicable career of obstructionism & wrongly breaking Senate norms.

There is reason to proceed with awareness of McConnell's tactics & not rush impeachment. The longer we have, the more wrongdoing we can uncover & sway more public opinion.

If McConnell refuses a trial, the next step the House could take would be suing the Senate, which would end up at the SCOTUS.

We need to ensure the GOP bears the weight of refusing to hold lawlessness accountable. DT is already using impeachment to try & rally his dupes. 3/10
First, we need to keep spreading the word about Trump's criminal acts & the criminal acts of everyone around him.

Despite what GOP Senators are trying to do by implying they won't hold a vote, there is indisputable reason for an #ImpeachmentInquiry 4/10
Here's how how to warm up: pass on idea of a 25th Amendment action, resignation, or impeachment as removal. (but definitely keep the hearings going as long as possible.)

Then, commit to work to vote him out. Commit to work to elect a Dem Senate to remedy what DT's done. 5/10
Here are specific action items:

1) Be sure you and others like you are registered to vote. Help register voters or re-register those people who’ve been wrongfully removed from the rolls. 6/10 #SaturdayMorning

2) Get active locally. Can't find your local party committee? Contact your state party & ask them to refer you. Link: asdc.democrats.org/state-parties/ 

Then set up or join groups to phone bank, door knock, & write #PostcardsToVoters
for local Democrats & issues of merit. It works. 7/10
3) If good local candidates are safe or you have/make extra time, help out elsewhere.

You put in your address and it sends you to the nearest swing district. swingleft.org Good local issues & candidates will drive the up-ticket vote, too. 8/10
4) Join groups that help get out the vote, help elect great Democratic candidates who will motivate voters, help organize volunteers, and help organize voter registrations. Here are some of my favorites.

To evict DT from the WH is with complete certainty relies on one thing, to #GOTV - get out the vote.

That means Democrats need to become more active politically---now. Democracy doesn't just happen between elections.

We must be the bringers of change. #SaturdayMotivation 10/10
