Thread: #MoscowMitch leaked this story on purpose to try and push House Dems to quickly impeach Trump. He’s signaling what eventually will become his argument: that impeachment proceedings cannot continue into election season. He’s wrong; they will.

politico.com/news/2019/10/1…
First, impeachment proceedings will continue into election season because Trump has stonewalled. You cannot simultaneously stonewall an investigation and complain that it is taking too long. Any GOP complaint about impeachment during the election is a problem of Trump’s making.
If Trump would like impeachment wrapped up by Christmas as #MoscowMitch suggests, fine. Comply with the subpoenas. Turn over your tax returns, bank and other financial records, Mueller grand jury materials, FBI counterintelligence case files, etc., and let all witnesses testify.
Instead, Trump has “fought all the subpoenas.” He’s turned over almost nothing and blocked every witness he can block.

But do you think that will stop the GOP from complaining about impeachment dragging into election season? Oh, hell no. They will pitch a fit.
What #MoscowMitch is doing with this leaked story is “conditioning the market.” He wants to create an expectation of things happening quickly out of respect for the electoral process. It’s rubbish and he knows it, but he’s a shameless monster with no moral compass.
Note that #MoscowMitch is careful to cast himself in this leak as a neutral arbiter of justice, willing to work 6-day workweeks to guarantee things are done by Christmas so the election season can be unfettered by such a spectacle. Give us a break, you traitorous clown!
Here’s what’s actually going to happen to you, #MoscowMitch. You and your tiny-fingered despot are gonna get *dragged* so hard you’re going to be begging to cut a deal. The dam is going to continue to break as House Dems continue winning in court and witnesses continue to flip.
You’ll be faced with a choice, #MoscowMitch. You can play ball or you can get dragged down into the muck. We know what you and your wife have been up to. You’re as corrupt as your chins are endless. You’ll be begging for a deal, #MoscowMitch. You’ll be *begging* for it.
So, no, I’m sorry #MoscowMitch. It’s not going to be a Merry Christmas. You won’t be smelting aluminum over a Yuletide fire with Deripaska. You’ll be seeking refuge inside your tortoise shell, and it will continue until you yell uncle and flip on Trump.
