Everything Trump lawyer saying about Georgia is a lie: signature verification audit in Cobb County GA found two mismatched signatures out of 15,000 votes, zero cases of fraud
There was no "inexplicable" drop in Georgia's mail ballot rejection rate as Bruce Castor claims

"Elections officials rejected absentee ballots because of signature issues at similar rates as in the 2018 election, about 0.15%, according to state data"

Trump's closing argument is defending the Big Lie
Trump is now under criminal investigation in Georgia

Even if GOP senators acquit him, that investigation is only just beginning, as Fulton County DA told @maddow last night

Good question from @SenatorWarnock:

"Is it true or false that in the months leading up to January 6th that courts in Georgia overturned cases aimed at challenging election results?"

@RepRaskin: "True"
Lindsey Graham’s call to Georgia Secretary of State asking him to toss all mail ballots now part of criminal inquiry

Yet another Senate Republican who’s a member of the jury but instead should be on trial washingtonpost.com/politics/linds…

Shocking stat: 57 senators who voted to convict Trump represent 76.7 MILLION more Americans than 43 senators who voted to acquit
Senators voting to impeach represent 61.6% of Americans (202 million)

Senators voting to acquit represent 38.2% of Americans (125 million)

This just underscores how undemocratic US Senate is:

-split 50-50 but Dems represent 41 million more people

-15 states with 38 million people elect 30 GOP senators

-California with 40 million people elects 2 Dems motherjones.com/politics/2021/… Image

Mitch McConnell refused to hold impeachment trial while Trump was in office & now says he’ll acquit because trial is unconstitutional since Trump no longer in office. Absolutely despicable
“No one has benefited more from minority rule—and done more to ensure it—than Mitch McConnell”

He helped incite the insurrection by refusing to recognize Biden's victory for 40 days & allowing the Big Lie to spread motherjones.com/politics/2021/…
McConnell spent weeks helping embolden Trump’s Big Lie

He didn't recognize Biden victory until Electoral College certified

During that time Trump spread a million crazy conspiracies about stolen election that ultimately led to insurrection at Capitol

GOP won’t denounce the Big Lie because they are using it to pass wave of new voter suppression laws

If Dems want to stop the next coup they need to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act & For the People Act before it’s too late
Dems can get rid of filibuster to pass John Lewis Voting Rights Act & For the People Act to stop GOP voter suppression

Or they can allow GOP to undermine democracy for next decade & steal the next election motherjones.com/politics/2021/…
“The gerrymandered Republican legislatures that laid the groundwork for Trump’s stolen-election narrative are now weaponizing misinformation about voter fraud to build support for new efforts to restrict ballot access” motherjones.com/politics/2021/…

Democrats are angrier that Trump incited the mob tried to kill the REPUBLICAN VICE PRESIDENT than Republicans are
When mob stormed Capitol yelling “hang Mike Pence” Trump attacked him on Twitter

“It’s honestly hard to fathom” says @RepJoeNeguse
“Mounting evidence emerging indicates Trump may have been personally informed that Vice President Mike Pence was in physical danger during the Jan. 6 Capitol siege, just moments before denigrating him on Twitter.” washingtonpost.com/politics/trump…

Republicans will control drawing of 188 House districts this year. Dems will control 74

Gerrymandering could easily cost Dems the House in 2022 writes @RonBrownstein

This is why they need to pass John Lewis Voting Rights Act & For the People Act

If Dems don't abolish filibuster to pass John Lewis Voting Rights Act & For the People Act they will allow GOP to entrench minority rule for next decade through extreme gerrymandering & voter suppression motherjones.com/politics/2021/…
Voters of color accounted for 4 in 5 newly eligible voters in past decade but GOP will use extreme gerrymandering to protect power of shrinking conservative white minority unless Dems pass federal election reform

Biden can name 4 Dems to USPS board of governors, giving them a majority that can oust Louis DeJoy. This should be a top priority washingtonpost.com/graphics/2021/…
One of most important things Biden can do is restore core democratic institutions like USPS that were gutted by Trump motherjones.com/politics/2021/…
Good sign: Biden committed today to fill vacancies on USPS board
