Utter bullshit.

Witnesses deposed live could move this needle.

Reading the statement into the record is just going to be spun into oblivion by fox news.

And yes i get that Dems don't want to get bogged down in explaining why the BS witnesses repubs want to call ARE Bullshit…
…and they don't want that fight to overshadow the legislative agenda, but this is just useless.

Dems: Republicans are outmaneuvering you, and you're still struggling to understand that you're going to have to move down the street AND talk, both at the same time.

I'm genuinely so angry right now
Dems all day every day but especially right now Painting of a blue bird with a red face and black beak on a

That sense that whether here on an anthropogenic-climate-ravaged, earth, or in some hereafter, every republican & more than a few democrats are angling to be among the "chosen few"— & not via good works & principled lives, but through strongarm tactics, grift, & outright violence
To them, heaven must look less like a village than a fortress.
Bunkers or mars colonies or guarded gilded heavenly paths, it's all about being the ones who get to hoard the most and hold onto it all no matter who they have to knife to death to keep it.

If i were a Democratic senator, congressperson, or strategist looking at the board where you just flipped 3 reliably red seats, including a win by a FRICKING ASTRONAUT, you know what I'd get behind, right away, before anything else?

@CoriBush's call for retroactive $2k checks.
Seriously. @SenMarkKelly is a space hero whose wife Congresswoman Giffords survived an assassination attempt, WHILE HIS TWIN BROTHER WAS IN SPACE,& later himself survived an insurrection at the capitol.

Let that man help people w/ direct checks & that seat stays blue for a WHILE
Same for @ossoff & @ReverendWarnock:

Give the 1st Jewish & 1st Black senators from GA solid, visible, legislative victories that genuinely help people in a way we're all clamouring for. Give that to EVERY dem.

Do that FIRST, then run the table on every other policy initiative.

We tried to tell you, over & over, that white supremacists have infiltrated law enforcement & the military.

Some of us tried to warn you this was not just possible but relatively easy for them to do because of the white supremacist roots of policing in the US.

But here we are.
On this #MartinLutherKingDay , please remember this, and resolve to DO something about it: doi.org/10.1080/232994…
It's #MartinLutherKingDay and if you're out here drawing a false equivalence between racial justice protests, & an insurrectionist riot to stage a coup to install one of the most blatantly white supremacist presidents* in decades, this letter is about you:

Sometimes you both have legitimate reasons for feeling in a bad place about your work AND have to remind yourself that that DOESN'T mean everyone hates your work and thinks you're worthless. Which is a hard line to ride.
And sometimes those times happen while you're in the middle of a pandemic and you and your loved ones are all starved for the kinds of engagement that usually helps you all through it, so your emotional and mental bandwidth are completely attenuated.
And sometimes THOSE times happen while you're in the middle of a coup attempt at the tail end of one of the most openly and unapologetically autocratic, kleptocratic, and white supremacist presidencies in american history.

There needs to be soul-deep, daily, uncovered Revelational Reckoning with who we are and how we live. What our values are and what it is we want in this world.

You expect us to teach in this? You expect us to learn, institutionally, in this? You expect us to work in ALL OF THIS?
We need a reckoning. We need space to grieve. And we need time to process this.

In the US, certainly, but I mean globally, right now.
Grief and a reckoning are not incommensurable things.

The best wakes tell us that.

Jim jordan opening sentence proves that he will say nothing substantial on these articles of impeachment. He will, instead, be a bloviating blowhard, repeating over and over again the same obfuscatory talking points from December 2019.

Which is exactly why republicans chose him.
Republicans seem not to understand that Lincoln's failure to convict every single general and officer of the confederacy is part of why we're where we are, today.
What are Republicans playing at, reserving all their time? Gonna go all at once, after the Democrats speak, trying to get the last word?
