“The truth is going to come out,” @RepAdamSchiff ⁩ said. “The only question is: Do you want to hear it now? Do you want to know the full truth now?” @ThePlumLineGS ⁩ on the shameful answers GOP Senators are giving to these questions.

A little before 2 a.m. Wednesday, GOP Senators voted down a @ChrisVanHollen  amendment that would have allowed Chief Justice Roberts to decide on evidence & witnesses. Republicans, Van Hollen said, thus “abandoned all pretense of impartiality.” My column

“It’s an Emergency.” This is underscored by the story being laid out right now in the Senate. Appreciated this ad for #CodeRed  in @DemJournal ⁩ You can preorder here:

“When I ran for Congress, impeaching the President was not one of the reasons on my list.” @RepValDemings  on @Morning_Joe . This is a point that needs to be made again and again. #Trump ’s abuses forced #impeachment . No Ukraine pay-for-play, no impeachment.

“GOP senators want to carry #Trump ’s coverup to completion, while leaving no fingerprints behind.” @ThePlumLineGS ⁩ on the effort by Senate Republicans to cover up their own coverup.

“Fear for Party: Divisions Tear Big Tent Apart.” Headline in this AM’s @nytimes ⁩. In “Code Red,” I lay out a principled path to reform & make the case for the urgency of left & center unity against #Trump  You can preorder here. Retweets appreciated


Let’s not whisper it or mumble: The issue is that we have a president who has no business being president. My column

Democrats: Stop tearing each other apart over impeachment. That only helps #Trump . The path is clear: Keep impeachment on the table but first use hearings & further inquiries to make clear to the majority just how outrageous Trump's behavior is. My column

Even before the #CorkerKickBack  went viral, this tax bill was a festival of corruption, full of provisions that help donors and tilt the tax code to the privileged and corporations. (And, please, no more talk of #Trump  as a "populist.") My column

McConnell says "we've cemented the Supreme Court right-of-center for a generation." So much for the legitimacy of an institution that is not supposed to be partisan. So much for its being an "umpire" calling "balls and strikes." So much for the fraud of "originalism."

Monday Night Massacre: Trump fires Sally Yates, Acting AG who refused to defend his indefensible #MuslimBan . History will remember her well.

Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server was front-page news for years. Trump’s extravagant abuses of power just roll by as if we were watching a movie about another country with a dysfunctional political system & a corrupt, madcap leader. My column

A column I don't regret writing: "Any senator who votes to confirm #Barr ] in the hope that he’ll fight back against Trump’s abuses is choosing to ignore the many red flags Barr waved before us amid all the smoke."

Bill Maher: "Did you protect President Obama?” Eric Holder: "The difference between me and Jeff Sessions is I had a president I did not have to protect.”

Joint / Statement: "Now that the television networks have decided to air the President’s address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime."

The FBI had nothing to justify its election-changing intervention against #Clinton . Zero. Zilch. It was all politics
