We are in INVESTIGATION land.

1. We are not in ‘impeachment‘ land.

We are in ‘investigation‘ land.

2. If an adequate and INDEPENDENT investigation shows Trump failed to abide our nation’s laws, then he should be impeached.
 

3. The impeachment process first requires a MAJORITY VOTE in the House of Representatives.

 

4. As of today, we are talking about the same House of Representatives that voted…. on May 4, with no CBO analysis

and

without reading the text of the bill (which was not even circulated the day before the vote))

to pass *Trumpcare

a bill which would strip millions of Americans of health insurance and render every imaginable female-related health condition a pre-existing condition.

 
5. As of today, we are talking about the same House of Representatives that passed the aforementioned *Trumpcare* bill — but excluded themselves from its application.
 
6. We are talking about the same House of Representatives which — in its entirety — may be repealed and replaced, by the people’s vote, in November 2018.
 
7. If (either the current or the future) House of Representatives find themselves compelled to impeach the President by a majority vote, then the matter must then tried by the Senate.
 
8. Conviction by the Senate requires a 2/3 vote.
 
9. 1/3 of the Senate is up for re-election in 2018.
 
10. Of these U.S. Senators, eight (8) are Republicans:
 
  • Barrasso, John (R-WY)
  • Corker, Bob (R-TN)
  • Cruz, Ted (R-TX)
  • Fischer, Deb (R-NE)
  • Flake, Jeff (R-AZ)
  • Hatch, Orrin G. (R-UT)
  • Heller, Dean (R-NV)
  • Wicker, Roger F. (R-MS)

So
 

Contact your representatives.

Remind them 2018 is coming.

 
Tell them to support a truly INDEPENDENT and TRANSPARENT (i.e., Congressional) investigation into Russia‘s involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign  …
… and into the facts underlying Comey’s firing.

THEN get involved in preparing each and every single American to vote in November 2018.


Final note:

Impeachment applies to Vice President too.

Pence remains at the mercy of the facts just like Trump.

Paul Ryan heading to Georgia’s 6th District

Paul Ryan is coming to Georgia.

You know Paul Ryan … remember the one?

Representative Paul Ryan … Speaker of the House…?

… the very same Paul Ryan who, after certain comments by Donald J. Trump came to light in which Trump said things like:

Donald J. Trump: You know and …

Unknown: She used to be great. She’s still very beautiful.

Trump: I moved on her, actually. You know, she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it.

Unknown: Whoa.

Trump: I did try and fuck her. She was married.

Unknown: That’s huge news.

Trump: No, no, Nancy. No, this was [unintelligible] — and I moved on her very heavily…

And things like:

I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there, and she was married. 

Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big, phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look. 

[The men spot Arianne Zucker waiting for them outside the bus]

Bush: Sheesh, your girl’s hot as shit. In the purple.

Trump: Whoa! Yes! Whoa!

Unknown: Yes! The Donald has scored. Whoa, my man!

Trump: Look at you. You are a pussy.

[crosstalk as the bus doors open and close – Trump is still on the bus]

Trump: Maybe it’s a different one.

Bush: It better not be the publicist. No, it’s her. It’s —

Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful – I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.

And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.

Bush: Whatever you want.

Trump: Grab them by the p****. You can do anything.

You remember.  

We’re talking about Paul Ryan – the Paul Ryan who, after those comments came to light, announced on October 10, 2016 that he could no longer defend Trump.

You know, Paul Ryan.

But remember we are talking about the same Paul Ryan who, a mere 34 days later, when confronted with the delicate matter that Trump had just named as chief adviser a well-known white supremacist by the name of Steve Bannon …

… a hiring decision, it’s worth noting, that [f]ormer Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke [commended] as ‘EXCELLENT….

So when that happened, Paul Ryan…

…yes! That same Paul Ryan who had declared just one month earlier that he could no longer support Donald Trump…

…when that Paul Ryan was asked to address the small detail that a known Nazi (or alt-right leader… whatever) was now occupying a position in the White House, Paul Ryan…

…in a shocking display of utter cowardice, an undeniable betrayal of his complete lack of integrity, and in total abdication of his responsibility to the American people under Article I…

responded simply by saying:

“I have no concerns.

I trust Donald’s judgment.”

Yes. That Paul Ryan!

That Paul Ryan is coming to Georgia.

To campaign for Karen Handel.

May 11 Letter to Senator Johnny Isakson

Dear Senator Isakson:

Today you introduced a bill that would protect whistleblowers in the VA.

In releasing news of the bill you emphasized your belief that it would help “create a culture of accountability.” 

You also noted that “our veterans suffer [when] the people responsible for caring for them are putting themselves first – not our veterans.”

Your assertions are undeniably true.

But remember too that the people suffer when their government—the people responsible for caring for them; the people charged with—

establishing Justice, insuring domestic Tranquility, providing for the common defence, promoting the general Welfare, and securing the Blessings of Liberty to the people and their Posterity

—put themselves first, and not the people.

Senator, as you well know, Edmund Burke once noted:

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

We ask that you support an independent investigation into the executive branch’s dealings with Russia and into the facts underlying John Comey’s termination as Director of the FBI.

I am respectfully yours,

your constituent.

May 10 – Open Letter to Senator Johnny Isakson

Dear Senator:

I am writing to request that you support an independent investigation into the executive branch’s ties, dealings, or involvement with Russia; activities conducted by or on behalf of Russia pertaining to the 2016 U.S. Presidential election; and whether, in connection with these, our laws were violated.

As you know, one of this nation’s highest values—a principle upon which our republic firmly rests—is the notion that we are a government of laws, not of men

This principle is firmly embedded in our national identity and remains a source of great pride for our patriots.  It is now being tested.

The following facts are undeniable: 

  • Sally Yates, former acting Attorney General was fired on January 30.
  • Preet Bharara, former U.S. Attorney was fired on March 11.
  • James Comey, former FBI Director was fired on May 9.

It is now known that in carrying-out their duties on behalf of the U.S. government, each of these individuals was investigating whether our nation’s laws had been violated in activities related to Russia; activities which may potentially have involved the office of the President.  

The President terminated each of them, one by one. 

Now to be clear, it was unquestionably within the President’s power to do so.

But, what we must now all concern ourselves with, is the question of why: why would our executive branch of government—tasked with enforcing this nation’s laws—have taken such measures? 

And, specifically as it relates to yesterday’s termination of James Comey, why would it have done so now?

As you know, one of the greatest threats to our nation has always been that of corrupting foreign practices. 

On this point, Alexander Hamilton expressly underscored our vulnerability, stating:

”One of the weak sides of republics, among their numerous advantages, is that they afford too easy an inlet to foreign corruption.” (The Federalist No. 22)

Today, each of our nation’s institutions finds itself bathed in the stench of possible foreign corruption. 

Our democracy is imperil.  

Senator Isakson, this much is certain:

If there is any possibility that these firings were intended to prevent the public from discovering malfeasance in the executive branch, then it is incumbent upon you, as a member of Congress—duly elected by the people of Georgia under Article I—to do any and everything that must be done to get to the bottom of this.

The people are now turning to you and demanding that you utilize the power entrusted to you and derived exclusively from the people’s consent, to carry out the responsibility you willingly assumed: To support and defend our Constitution.

You must be the eyes and ears of the people.

You must determine what risks may be posed to Americans.

You must ensure we remain a nation governed by laws.

 

In sum, to paraphrase James Madison, the people have granted you this power to control them, the governed—now you, Senator, are obliged to control the government itself.

Congress is rigged.

Tom Price?

Lock him up.

According to the Washington Post:

“Donald Trump’s nominee to be the country’s next health care czar invested last year as much as $90,000 in six pharmaceutical companies shortly before leading a legislative and public relations effort that benefited those specific companies, records show.”

So yes – the system is rigged. 

These people are not getting rich through hard work.  
They are not smarter or more deserving than you. 
They are cheating you.

Join me in un-rigging the system.  
Join me in getting these selfish, greedy fools (and their greedy, selfish friends) out of office.  
Join me in voting in the MIDTERM ELECTION.

Mark your calendar: Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
After-party: TBA
