GOP lawmaker says Trump’s conduct meets ‘threshold for impeachment’


AG Barr has deliberately misrepresented the Mueller report. He has started examinations of the conduct of Intell/FBI personnel without a predicate-for political reasons. He is protecting the President. He does not stand up for the good people he leads. He is not fit to lead DOJ.


Enjoy this clip of Fox News Judge, Andrew Napolitano, simply and soundly nailing Donald Trump on more impeachable conduct.

The only reason to “change the rules” of counterintelligence investigations is if you know they were never broken in the first place. These rules have been in place for decades and no one in the GOP ever complained...until one of their own got caught.


The Pelosi non-impeachment route while risk averse, robs Congress of meaningful discovery and the public of much-needed testimony. It also gives Trump complete narrative control. We need to arm voters with the truth and we need him on his back feet.

Nationwide protests planned over abortion bans

It’s Mnuchin’s call to act in defiance of Congress and the law. He’s acting not because of a legal opinion but because he’s afraid of incurring Trump’s wrath. He is breaking the law because he is too weak to uphold it.


If he's not arrested now, then this is how our democracy dies. Because those charged with enforcing the rule of law didn't. This isn't politics, but the corrupt testing the lines of the law. They cross the line without consequence, then what's the law?


The president claiming the FBI’s investigation was “TREASON“ reminds me that a Russian once said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” That shouldn’t happen in America. Who will stand up?


As I stated tonight on @AC360, AG Barr's comments on the Russia investigation are not only unprofessional for the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, they are a lie.

Mr. Trump is retreating to delusion, paranoia, and megalomania. Read his tweets and ask yourself, "Should this man have any responsible job, let alone be president?"


He’s worried about this. The tweet is absurd. And remember, Trump was advised by the FBI that Russia was trying to subvert the election & still didn’t report contacts & offers of help from Russia to the campaign to law enforcement & lied about them to the American people.
