Merrick Mthrfxn Garland's opening statement. A reading original documents with Dirk and #DemsDoGood thread. Let's goddamn go. Opening comments for the 2 22 2021 hearing. A THREAD.
Merrick lays it out: he serves no president or anyone else. He serves justice; the people of the United States and, he serves with the people of the Department of Justice.
He is not going to roll over the executive. He will serve his oath to the rule of law.
He learned the lessons of Watergate. Law Enforcement must be independent; the White House has to stand back; the FBI has to follow the law and the DOJ has to follow the Justice Manual. All of this is here…
Pretty much everything the DOJ does or does not do is covered by the Justice Manual. If you are ever wondering why - for example - what Comey did is wrong - check out the "dealing with the press" parts of the manual…
Boom. Garland says that the DOJ was FOUNDED to deal with white supremacy. (13 no slavery; 14 states subject to consitution; 15 no discrimination on race or previous slavery). #DemsDoGood
The Civil Rights Act is so important that it is the only law specifically mentioned by Garland.
Let's tie civil rights to prosecuting felons, shall we? Because these white nationalist seditionist forces have been getting away with stuff for far too long.
The guy who prosecuted the Oklahoma City bomber is ready, willing and able to bring the heat to "white supremacists and others" who stormed the capitol.
He strives to the ideal of THE GUY THAT WENT TO NUREMBURG to prosecute the nazis. Cuz prosecuting Nazis is about to be his new job. Here citing to Justice/AG Robert H Jackson.
And for those following carefully along, there's another guy that cited Jackson. The guy that oversaw the first prosecutions of Stone, Manafort and Flynn. The guy the evils have tried to get everyone to hate.
I CAN'T WAIT till M Garland is in office. With Senate confirmation, he is the absolute right person to make the calls on the prosecution of the seditionists. ALL OF THEM. Dirk out.

Gather 'round children. Let me tell you the story of an American hero, smart person and nurse. A thread. And a touch of #DemsDoGood. And maybe a love story.
She is head of the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center. Let's break that down. The NIH is one of the greatest governmental research orgs to exist on the planet, ever. The CC is its research hospital, where they apply medical science.
The most difficult questions in medicine are about how to research ethically. By definition, you are trying unproven treatments. You have to ask patients to roll the dice WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW if treatment will help. My very good friend - now passed on - was at CC for treatment

“White men represent 73 percent of firearm suicide victims in America.”…
As a few of you know, I am engaged in finding a way to stop gun crime in the US. I wish there was something that we could do about this too.
This is utterly unecessary and unacceptable and tragic. I thank @MomsDemand for their advocacy.
It should not be so. It need not be so. We need more women in positions of power.

Dear Texas: Did you know the budget for CEO's office ERCOT was $2,100,000+ for salaries and benefits? (and of course there's permanent savings by not hiring the person that was to have earned $53,000 per year - expendable). #TexasBlackout #ERCOT
At least the Corporate Communications team will feasting while it tries to tell you that it didn't let you freeze to death. (Yes that's over $6,000,000 in salaries and benefits).
And I don't know what these other offices do, but it doesn't really seem like the people got their $130,000,000's worth.…

This is an absolutely stunning video of Marco Rubio before they made him into a #meatpuppet. Talk about mental decline - I didn't even remember Rubio knew how democracy worked. (THANK YOU @doms_mom03 and I hope it's OK I'm boosting your thread)
While we are reliving Cruz's transformation into a pathetic #meatpuppet, here's Cruz talking about Trump's association with David Packer and calling Trump a pathalogical liar. Way to go, Cruz.

Ruben Verastigui is (allegedly) a horrifying pedo monster and has been on the digital teams for the @SenateGOP, National @GOP and the Trump campaign. I didn't want to talk about him, but I think it's important.
The allegations against RV are among the most horrifying I have read. It involves possessing and sharing images of rape of infants and plans to take action in the real world of that nature. I don't really recommend reading the details, but they are here.…
These allegations were first brought to light by @jaredlholt who has an excellent thread. He warns people that they may want to avoid the end of the thread because it includes shots of the specific allegations. I make the same warning.
