Can we all agree that a subpoena with no penalty for ignoring it isn’t a subpoena? Because: sub = under; poena = penalty. As Steven Mnuchin flips his middle finger at subpoenas, he asks, “What’s the penalty?” I think it’s about fffffff time to show him. #ArrestMnuchin

BREAKING: Trump just arrived to play golf at his DC club. It’s the 252nd day he’s spent at one of his properties. He’s the most lazy, corrupt and illegitimate president ever. A traitor who coordinated with Russia & obstructed justice. He should not be president. He should resign.

Knowing what’s in Trump’s tax returns is a matter of national security. Congress must know what countries Trump is most compromised by. The tax returns will reveal a part of that puzzle. Mnuchin’s obstruction is a risk to our national security. Lock him up. #ArrestMnuchin

At start of Senate Watergate hearings, today 1973, Chair Sam Ervin said, “The health, if not the survival, of our social structure and of our form of government requires the most candid and public investigation of all the evidence….The nation and history itself are watching us.

Kellyanne Conway’s husband celebrates the first Republican to back Trump’s impeachment


The first Republican to back the impeachment of Donald Trump was praised by prominent GOP attorney George Conway, who is married to White House councilor Kellyanne Conway.

Republican Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) on Saturday called for Trump’s impeachment.

“Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report,” Amash noted. “President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.”

“I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis,” Amash said.

“Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment,” he added. “In fact, Mueller’s report identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.”

The Republican congressman also railed against the strategy of Speaker Nancy Pelosi to refuse impeachment.

“While impeachment should be undertaken only in extraordinary circumstances, the risk we face in an environment of extreme partisanship is not that Congress will employ it as a remedy too often but rather that Congress will employ it so rarely that it cannot deter misconduct,” the Republican argued. “America’s institutions depend on officials to uphold both the rules and spirit of our constitutional system even when to do so is personally inconvenient or yields a politically unfavorable outcome.”

Conway gave the Republican congressman props for his stance.

GOP Congressman Justin Amash just did House Democrats a huge favor when it comes to Trump’s impeachment


Once you get past the pundits who are falsely framing impeachment as a magic wand, so they can score cheap points with a frustrated populace by disingenuously attacking Democratic House leaders for not waving that wand, the reality is that impeachment is a complex equation. If the Democrats want a positive result from it, they have to do it in a very specific and calculated way. To that end, a House Republican just did them a big favor.

The impeachment equation doesn’t merely come down to whether it’ll result in Donald Trump’s removal. The point of impeachment is to use it to so thoroughly expose Trump’s crimes, most Americans decide he must go. That would leave Senate Republicans with the no-win choice of removing Trump to save their own individual prospects of reelection, or not removing him and losing their own seats for it. That way, no matter what the GOP Senate ultimately decides, the Democrats – and America – win.

For the above strategy to work, most Americans (the ones in the middle, not the ones on either side) have to conclude that House Democrats only decided to impeach because Trump left them no choice. They can’t be seen as doing it in partisan or opportunistic fashion. That means the Democrats need the majority of Americans to want impeachment before it starts. The polls make clear that the Democrats’ strategy is working: the William Barr hearings drove the pro-impeachment poll numbers from the 37-40% range, to the 45-49% range – and this was as a result of the testimony of a guy who was trying to help Trump.

The likes of Robert Mueller and Don McGahn will publicly testify soon, no matter how much histrionic nonsense certain pundits might yell about how they’re somehow magically never going to show up to testify – even though Trump has no avenue to even try to stop them from showing up. But as that process is being all worked out and scheduled, we’re now seeing something else play out: certain Republicans getting out ahead of the Democrats.

Last night former FBI Director James Comey used Twitter to all but call for William Barr to be impeached, which helps the House Democrats’ cause, because Comey is widely known to be a lifelong (recently renounced) Republican. But today we saw something far more important happen. Republican Congressman Justin Amash all but called for Donald Trump to be impeached.

Justin Amash is from a moderate district that has no love for Donald Trump. He regularly criticizes Trump and votes against him, so his tweets today are nothing new. But it’s a big deal that, as part of a lengthy thread, Amash tweeted today that “Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report” and more importantly that “President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.” He’s not exactly committing himself to voting for Trump’s impeachment, but he is committing himself to being in favor of the impeachment process when it starts.

Amash is just one vote, and House Democrats already have enough votes to impeach Donald Trump without any GOP help. But that’s not the point. We now have a House Republican getting out slightly ahead of the Democratic House leaders on impeachment. That gives them significant cover when it comes time for them to make the argument to the public – after Mueller and McGahn testify – that they’re left with no choice but to impeach Trump. Talking heads aside, this is how the process works when it comes to taking Trump down – and it’s falling into place.

Republican Congressman from Michigan, Justin Amash, is the first crack in the armor. If all Republicans in Congress would take the time to actually read the Mueller report, they’d be hard pressed to turn away from Trump’s mountain of criminality.

I say this as someone at odds with Amash on lots of issues important to me (and I think to him): All honor to Justin Amash, who has done so much today to set an example of constitutional responsibility and mature, civic discourse.

This consistent disapproval of Donald Trump’s policies and posturing by senate Republicans is telling. They spent the first two years of his presidency basking in his fetid turbulence, and now they distance themselves from him in key moments when he desperately needs their support. In considering these developments, it’s becoming increasingly unrealistic to believe that the Senate won’t remove Trump when he finally gets bombarded by the results of ongoing investigations. Don’t listen to those who say it can’t be done.
