On Thursday the Select Committee on the January 6th Riot brought to a close their first round of hearings. Each hearing built on the one before, corroborating previous testimony & relying on fact primarily testified to by Republicans. The final hearing made one thing clear: Donald Trump betrayed his oath of office, his country & his supporters. Feeding them a continuous litany of lies, he preyed on their patriotism to try to steal the votes of tens of millions of Biden voters because he wanted to stay in power. We don't know what the next round of

It’s time for America to take a deep breath. We have just completed a successful election in the face of a pandemic as an extraordinarily divided country. The election was safe and secure. No Secretary of State, Republican or #Democrat has seen any sign of fraud. Some tiny (1/4) errors, yes, because we are only human. To have carried out the type of fraud being alleged would have required somehow giving fake votes to #JoeBiden, while still allowing #Republicans to get big wins down ballot. It simply didn't happen. What we need to do now is to allow (2/4)

.@realDonaldTrump, Please stop injecting yourself into crises. Don’t try to tell governors what to do. Instead of calling for calm & for the nation to unite, you were sequestered in the White House basement & silent. Governors and mayors, on the other hand, were actively (1/5) engaged in trying to bring order to their cities and towns. The #NationalGuard has been deployed across the country and most of the demonstrations were largely peaceful. While you only seem to feel the need for the use of more force, local elected leaders tried to (2/5)

#COVID doesn’t respect geopolitical boundaries, it doesn’t care about age or sex. It isn’t impressed by wealth. It is a challenge shared across the world that currently has no solution. We will find the vaccine and treatment, but we won’t find it on our own. (1/4) We won’t be able to produce enough without help. It will take the best minds from across the world to wrestle this to the ground. That is precisely why this is the worst time to walk away from the one organization that brings the world together to find the answers we need (2/4)

In March 2016, @BarackObama nominated Merrick Garland to a position as Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court. At the time @senatemajldr refused to hold hearings saying that the American people would deserve to be heard In the Presidential election that was 9 months away.1/6 In fact, #McConnell refused to hold hearings even though the Senate had confirmed Garland several times before for lower court benches. Now, that same Senate leader is saying that, should an opening on #SCOTUS occur before this fall’s election, now only 7 months away, he (2/6)

To say that they believe that @realDonaldTrump did ask for foreign interference in our domestic elections and not need to hear more and yet refuse to vote for removal because they like his policies is mind boggling. They argued on the floor of the #Senate that the #Democrat (1/4) case had come forward because the #Democrats didn’t like the President’s policies yet that now becomes the reason not to call for witnesses. Trying to undermine a domestic election with the help of a foreign government is prohibited by the #Constitution. That is exactly (2/4)

Now that there has been ample time to digest at least the outlines of the #MuellerReport, there are two main takeaways: 1/ The Russian government seriously and systematically attempted to influence the outcome of the 2016 election and are prepared to do so again. (1/5) 2/ But for the refusal of some key staff to carry out his orders, #PresidentTrump would have thrown this country into a #ConstitutionalCrisis. The 1st should be extremely concerning as it seems no effort is being made to prevent interference in 2020. The protection of our (2/5)
