This BS is meant to deflate us & make us disengage.
But we will refuse to do so, right?
They're scared. We have them on the ropes. APPLY MAXIMUM PRESSURE. Senate switchboard: (202) 224-3121.

A trial that doesn't allow testimony from material witnesses isn't a trial at all. It's a cover-up.

I asked @RepAdamSchiff: At time when many have lost faith in govt, does the fact that the Chief Justice is presiding over an impeachment trial in which GOP senators refuse witnesses or evidence contribute to the loss of legitimacy of the Chief Justice, SCOTUS, & Constitution? pic.twitter.com/H4Txt68EdX

“The idea that somehow testifying to what you think is true is destructive to the system of government we have — I think, is very nearly the reverse — the exact reverse of the truth,” said Bolton. https://t.co/LvZkPmQKHO

Bolton played a clever game trying to ramp up the value of his book, but he didn’t factor in that Bill Barr is coming to destroy him at the behest of an exonerated Donald Trump with newly unlimited executive powers.

It's really blowing my mind that President Trump is trying to set the precedent of investigating the children of political opponents when Ivanka and Jr. literally defrauded customers in SoHo and dodged charges by a hair after a campaign donation to the DA.

I know you're tired & scared. I am too.
But you have to keep calling. Our democracy is hanging in the balance, & to borrow from @ElieNYC, we have to risk heartbreak. It's our only choice.
Tell your GOP Senators that we need witnesses.
Call. Now. Tomorrow. Call.

.@ewarren tosses a verbal grenade into #ImpeachmentTrial by submitting question for #ChiefJusticeRoberts to read out loud: does trial presided over by Chief Justice without witnesses further undermine public confidence in institutions like the Supreme Courts (awkward)

The big story today is Chief Justice Roberts, who--
* blocked Rand Paul from outing the alleged whistleblower.
* got socked with a hardball by Liz Warren.
* was urged to stick to the sidelines by Jay Sekulow.
* was encouraged to take a more hands-on role by Adam Schiff.

My senator, Pat Toomey is said to be going to vote for no witnesses.
I will do everything I possibly can to make sure he doesn't get one more term.
As God is my witness, I will have him out on the street.

We’re witnessing the raw, partisan pursuit of power by Senate Republicans, most of whom appear willing to destroy the Constitution if it serves their personal interests. I never thought I’d see such an unpatriotic display in America, let alone the Senate. Never.

Trump’s lawyers say the House should have pursued subpoenas last October, which they admit could take 9 months (till July 2020).
Trump’s lawyers also argue not to impeach a president in an election year.
This makes the president above the law the last two years of his term.
