I’ve previously inveighed against the dangers of too much impeachment talk. But the time has come for the House Judiciary Committee to open hearings into Trump’s “high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” Let the facts drive the process.

What are we to make of the coincidence of “FUCT” as a purported trademark in a SCOTUS case and “I’m FUCKED” (unredacted!) in a classic Trump quotation from the long-awaited Mueller Report?

Here’s the full video of that answer if anyone wants to see his full statement - also says Congress is within their rights to impeach and Trump deserves it https://twitter.com/thisweekabc/status/1119284104460005376?s=21 …

Exactly right! @PeteButtigieg on target — as usual!

A great example of potentially impeachable oath-defying dereliction of duty: Trump responding to Mueller Report by taking a victory lap rather than doing anything at all to protect our election systems from ongoing Russian attack. Not treason, exactly, but treachery for sure.

.@PeteButtigieg’s perfect answer when asked re impeachment: “There’s plenty of evidence showing that Trump should be impeached, but since I’m not in Congress I’m focused on replacing him the old-fashioned way.” So much better than the prepackaged crap most candidates serve up.

Glad @RepJerryNadler is now issuing the subpoena for the unredacted report with all the underlying evidence. @RepAdamSchiff @RepRoKhanna @RepJeffries @RepSwalwell @RepSpeier @RepRaskin

But of course public hearings guided by the redacted report’s incredibly helpful roadmap must not await the outcome of the predictably protracted subpoena litigation. Hearings looking to possible impeachment must begin immediately. If not sooner!

Quoted @CoryBooker

The Trump administration posted an unsearchable pdf of the Mueller report so it would be harder for you to read. We made it easier. Here’s a searchable version: https://www.scribd.com/document/406729844/Mueller-Report …

Quoted @jonathanalter

This is a welcome change. @tribelaw wrote a whole book recommending against impeachment. Now he sees it is essential to explore it. https://twitter.com/tribelaw/status/1119221406141702145 …

Glad @jonathanalter agrees, but the book @JoshuaMatz8 and I wrote didn’t “recommend against impeachment.” It argued that the decision to impeach is a grave one and mustn’t be taken unless and until the dangers of holding back exceed those of moving forward.

It’s premature to decide the damning facts Mueller reported won’t matter pre-2020. Live testimony can shake even seemingly settled loyalties. That’s what made all the difference with Nixon. @RepRaskin @RepSwalwell @RepJerryNadler @RepAdamSchiff @RepCummings @RepMaxineWaters

”When the president interferes with an investigation for improper reasons, it is an abuse of the public trust in a way that a normal obstruction of justice crime is not. That means the impeachment process is well-suited to evaluating it.”

Mr. Mueller did his job, writes @NoahBookbinder. It is time for members of Congress to do theirs. https://nyti.ms/2ZnEqto 

“Rather than being exculpatory, the brazen, public nature of the president’s apparent obstruction” — and collusion — “is one of the reasons it presents such a grave threat to our democratic values.”

Mr. Mueller did his job, writes @NoahBookbinder. It is time for members of Congress to do theirs. https://nyti.ms/2ZnEqto 

“The fact that much of the evidence of Mr. Trump’s obstruction occurred in plain view of the American people diminishes neither the seriousness of that conduct nor the need for further inquiry.”

“The greatest risk at this moment in our history is . . . that we will send a clear message to future would-be authoritarians that our institutions cannot withstand a naked assault on the proposition that no person is above the law.”

This is a vital reminder of the grave threats to national security that @RepAdamSchiff & the Intel Committees must investigate now. @jgeltzer & @rgoodlaw perform a major public service with this MUST READ op-ed about our seemingly compromised president:

The open case against Roger Stone will almost certainly expose Trump’s personal involvement in orchestrating with Rick Gates the Wikileaks dump of material hacked by Russia.

Quoted @dorfonlaw

Congress should but likely won't use the Mueller Report as a basis for impeachment. It will likely investigate, however. Attention should focus on WHY Trump repeatedly denied Russian interference. No innocent answers for POTUS. http://www.dorfonlaw.org/2019/04/mueller-report-counterspin-we-still.html …

I agree with @dorfonlaw ⬇️

Read this @JRubinBlogger piece for guidance on what to ask. One of the questions, as I explain in her column, ISN’T what the Framers would’ve done with a guy like Trump. That one’s a no-brainer: They would’ve sacked him in a New York minute.
