I’ve been sounding the alarm on rightwing domestic extremism for over a decade.
Back in 2009 I pleaded w/ my colleagues to listen to the warnings. They were tragically buried after Rush Limbaugh and other liars created a firestorm.
No beating around the bush. Coldblooded murderers, rampaging neo-nazis, militia maniacs, and other domestic terrorists have exploded bc trump and republicans have spent years winking at, nodding to, and encouraging their violence.
On January 25 I became the first member calling for the entire Postal board to be fired for their silence and complicity in trump and dejoy’s attempts to subvert the election and destroy the Post Office.
Trump confessed he was wrecking @USPS to rig the election. His toady Postmaster General dejoy carried out that arson. It’s time to clean house.
It should surprise no one that trump’s disgraced personal lawyer rudy giuliani is involved in a pardons-for-bribes scam and was reported to the FBI for allegedly seeking $2 Million to buy a pardon from trump.
In November I filed a complaint against rudy demanding his disbarment.
Even less surprising trump has been discussing pardoning himself and his kids.
Reminder: pardons issued to stop probes of the trump crime family would be prosecutable obstruction of justice and any trump self-pardons would be illegal and unenforceable. nytimes.com/2021/01/17/us/…
I just voted to impeach donald trump for inciting insurrection and trying to violently end American democracy.
Donald Trump is dangerous and the greatest internal threat ever to American democracy. Trump sowed insurrection to overthrow our government and he came close to succeeding. Trump engaged in treason.
Trump's atrocities have not abated but accelerated by failure to constrain him. The blood of dead is on his hands. If his actions are not impeachable, then nothing is. And when he is out of office, trump must be prosecuted for his crimes too.
Back on December 11th I was the *first* member to demand against seating in Congress anyone supporting insurrection against the government. They are violating Sec 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment.
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment was written after the Civil War to bar from government any traitors who would seek to destroy the Union. It forbids Congressmembers from engaging in insurrection against America.
Trying to overturn an election is a pretty clear example of that.

No surprise then that Americans rank the post office maybe the most popular arm of government. A 2018 Pew poll found 88% of Americans have a positive view of @USPS.
Try to find something else in our government 88% of Americans support.
The post office birthed a 2nd American revolution. USPS precipitated road building & allowed people to fan out across the land. Postal contracts sustained transcontinental 🚂. It was the post that got the govt to invest in aviation & birth commercial ✈️ . uspsoig.gov/sites/default/…
