Barr has turned the DOJ into Trump's stooge. McConnell has turned the Senate into Trump's rubber stamp. Gorsuch and Kavanaugh have turned the Supreme Court into Trump's doormat. The GOP has turned itself into a Trump cult. At what point do we call this a dictatorship?

Can we just cut through the bullshine? The claim that the Democrats haven't done anything in Congress is a joke. They have passed hundreds of bills on all sorts of vital issues. That these bills are backing up in the Senate like rush hour on the 405 is because of Mitch McConnell.

What the hell are Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans waiting for?  Declare the House Democrats’ impeachment null and void NOW!  The House left for a long recess before sending the articles to the Senate.  Enough!  The speaker doesn’t run the country.

I’ve never been in a courtroom where the accused can unilaterally block witnesses from testifying or prohibit prosecutors from asking witnesses questions. Yet that's what Trump and McConnell are doing. No court would let a trial to proceed this way—and neither should the Senate.

When Pres. Trump rails against Dems for doing nothing, he may be confused by how government works. I will explain. If you pass bills in the House (gun control, election security, etc.) and they die in the Senate the do nothings are McConnell and his fellow Republicans.

Leader McConnell’s plan for a dark of night impeachment trial confirms what the American people have seen since Day One: the Senate GOP Leader has chosen a cover-up for the President, rather than honor his oath to the Constitution.

A Senate trial should be like any other trial. Senators should hear from witnesses. Senators should see the documents. Only then can they make the best possible decision regarding the President's misconduct. Once upon a time, Mitch McConnell felt the same.

Senate Republicans want you to think the House isn’t doing anything. Apparently they’ve missed the stack of House-passed legislation piling up on Leader McConnell’s desk. #ForThePeople 

You're going to want to make sure your friends see this: Senators Booker, Coons, and Flake just asked for the Senate's unanimous consent to pass a bill protecting the Mueller investigation from President Trump. But they didn’t get it. Because McConnell objected.
