Remember waaaaaaaay back four years ago, when nine US Navy sailors were briefly detained by Iran when they drifted into Iranian waters? And you could hear @GOP  heads exploding two time zones away? Yeah. Me too. Good times. 2/2

A real treat to join @JaymeStevenson  and @TerrieWood  to celebrate the graduating seniors of Post 53 EMS in #Darien . Skills, service and courage!

#1-maybe tell your boss #2-you  know an even better time to get serious about this? 4 MONTHS AGO

Grew this seven footer this year. That was a new one for me.

Some pretty serious bearding going on outside the hives tonight. Not unusual when it’s this hot.

Very happy to meet at @bigelowtea  with @GovNedLamont  @CMcCarthyVahey  @BrendaKupchick  to celebrate a $2 million federal grant to the Workplace in Bridgeport. Money will go to apprenticeships for young people to train them in manufacturing and other great jobs! Thank you @crbigs

“Didn’t rat him out . . . fuhgeddaboutit . . . so how about a little somethin’ for the effort?” The only thing more amazing than the corrruption of these people is how open they are about it.

Today was honey harvest at Finca Himes. A sweaty hour of 50,000 pissed off bees and three stings later got me to five gallons of pure fresh CT honey. And I took less than half, so there will be autumn honey as well.

Wow. Bishop Mariann Buddy of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington hammering @realDonaldTrump  for using her church for a photo op. “I can’t believe what my eyes are seeing tonight...what on earth did we just witness? The abuse of sacred symbols”

The senators who never gave Merrick Garland a vote and who’ve been cranking through the confirmation of unqualified judges can’t find enough smelling salts and fainting couches when Pelosi plays a little hardball on an impeachment trial.

If Obama has promised that Mexico would pay for a wall and then turned around and made troops and their families pay, he would have been impeached 10 times. @GOP  today: ? ? ?

Extorting a foreign government for your personal political gain is not the same thing as carrying out the foreign policy of the United States. Just Saying.

My Republican colleagues have chosen not to attend today's @HouseIntel  hearing on national security priorities. The letter explaining their absence is as wrongheaded as it is mendacious.

As revelations tumble out, I become less amazed at the courage of the whistleblower than at the silent complicity of so many other senior officials. Time for them, and my @GOP  colleagues, to start thinking about their entries in the history books.

I love my country deeply. It’s why I do what I do. But the DOJ just destroyed itself to exonerate a powerful white man who admitted his crimes. But it takes two months to arrest the men who hunted and killed an innocent black man. On video. We got work to do. #AhmaudArbery 

It is time for the House of Representatives to begin an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. /1
