THREAD: Congress has 2 grave powers: the power to declare war & the power to impeach. #Impeachment should never be the first option for Congress. It comes with huge institutional & political implications for our country. It requires careful consideration & strong evidence. (1/6)
We have not hidden our frustration with many of Trump’s obstructive & corrupt actions. That’s why we supported @HouseJudiciary impeachment investigation from the beginning. (2/6)
@HouseJudiciary Grateful for @SpeakerPelosi's leadership in broadening the inquiry to include other committees’ investigative efforts. Congress now has a duty to examine Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political opponent. (3/6)
@HouseJudiciary @SpeakerPelosi Trump has ordered his administration to block any & all legitimate Congressional oversight inquiries, making it impossible for us to complete our Constitutional duties. His actions have pushed us to an inflection point. (4/6)
@HouseJudiciary @SpeakerPelosi By stonewalling, Trump is telling Americans that he doesn’t have to answer to them. As representatives of the American people, it’s our job to stand up for what’s right. Impeachment proceedings are warranted & necessary. (5/6)
@HouseJudiciary @SpeakerPelosi We’re in the midst of a Constitutional crisis & we must use the full force of the Constitution to resolve it. #ExposeTheTruth (6/6)
