Over 500 legal scholars agree President Trump committed impeachable conduct: President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking foreign interference in our elections for his personal, political benefit at the expense of national security interests.

Today, @HouseIntel  released our official report on the impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump. Tune in live as I discuss the significant evidence our inquiry uncovered of Trump’s Ukraine misconduct and obstruction of Congress.

Trump is seeking to kick millions of families and children off food assistance. Meanwhile, he's preparing to send another $14 billion to big agribusinesses to offset the damage from his trade war. His values are clear: Welfare for corporations. Hunger for American families.

Trump abused the power of his office to solicit foreign interference in our election and help his campaign. He withheld millions in military assistance from an ally to pressure them to do so. We must hold this president accountable. No one is above the law.

The House passed HR 4 to restore the Voting Rights Act after the disastrous 2013 Supreme Court decision gutted voter protections and enabled widespread discrimination. The right to vote, without the ability to access and exercise this right, is just an empty promise.

The White House said they wanted open hearings, not closed, and then they didn’t want those either. Then they said they wanted to participate in the proceedings, and now they say they don’t. All they really want is to hide the President’s serious misconduct. It’s not working.

I say this to the President, and his defenders in Congress: You may think it’s okay how Trump and his associates interacted with Russians during the campaign. I don’t. I think it’s immoral. I think it’s unethical. I think it’s unpatriotic. And yes, I think it’s corrupt.

Mr. President, I see you’ve had a busy morning of “Executive Time.” Instead of tweeting false smears, the American people would appreciate it if you turned off the TV and helped solve the funding crisis, protected Dreamers or...really anything else.

The U.S. government is finally open again. RT if you think Congress should pass legislation to prevent future shutdowns.

The transcript of the call reads like a classic mob shakedown: – We do a lot for Ukraine – There’s not much reciprocity – I have a favor to ask – Investigate my opponent – My people will be in touch Nice country you got there. It would be a shame if something happened to her.

We heard that Donald Trump only cares about the big stuff that helps him personally. The question now is — what do we care about? The Constitution? Our oath of office? Or merely our party. In the words of Elijah Cummings: We are better than that.
