      The principal, the vice principal, all of the staff at Randle Highlands Elementary School were going above and beyond just teaching but nurturing these students and by extension their community with limited resources. They and the school deserve everything they received tonight! #OneVoiceCanChangeARoom

      “Matthew Rozsa
      December 10, 2019 8:15PM (UTC)

      On Tuesday, Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives announced that they would move forward with two articles of impeachment — involving abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — against President Donald Trump.

      At first, I shared the frustration of many liberals and progressives that these articles are too limited in scope, and leave a great many of Trump’s apparent misdeeds unmentioned. But further reflection and exchanges with legal experts have convinced me that appearance is misleading. In fact, Democrats have performed a deft feat. In a single stroke — OK, two strokes — they have elevated the process of holding Trump accountable above the realm of partisan politics, and have also given the Democratic nominee (whoever that is) an excellent case to use against Trump in next year’s presidential election.”

      Goodnight TOD

    Whether you’re a supporter or not, why people continue to go to orangeman rallies to hear him whine about how mean the Democrats and media treat him is beyond me. I can’t believe that even the actors/plants are being paid enough to endure this.

    I wouldn’t hire Lindsey Graham to mow my lawn. He’s one of those vile, unhappy, insecure creeps who’d run down the street after a burrowing animal, yelling it had created a hole in the grass that trapped his foot.

    Where did that come from? Well, if you mute Graham at this hearing and just watch his arms and head move around, you’ll see. Guy’s crazy.

    While I have him muted, I’m playing Bruce Springsteen’s version of Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, just to keep my own personal sanity. 🙂

    But regarding the Impeachment Articles event tonight:
    Could be Lavrov is here to remind Trump party to keep playing ball with Russia.

    “Chairman Nadler Announces the Introduction of Articles of Impeachment Against President Donald J. Trump”
    Chairman Nadler:
    “Over the last several months, the investigative committees of the House have been engaged in an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s efforts to solicit foreign interference in the 2020 elections—efforts that compromised our national security and threatened the integrity of our elections.
    Throughout this inquiry, he has attempted to conceal the evidence from Congress and the American people.
    Our President holds the ultimate public trust. When he betrays that trust, and puts himself before country, he endangers the Constitution, he endangers our democracy and he endangers our national security. The Framers prescribed a clear remedy for Presidents who violate their Oath of Office. That is the power of impeachment.
    Today, in service to our duty to the Constitution and to our country, the House Committee on the Judiciary is introducing two articles of impeachment charging the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump,
    with committing high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    • December 11, 2019 at 12:40 pm

      Chairman Nadler:
      “The first article is for Abuse of Power.
      It is an impeachable offense for the President to exercise the powers of his public office to obtain an improper personal benefit, while ignoring or injuring the national interest.
      That is exactly what President Trump did when he solicited and pressured Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 Presidential Election—thus damaging our national security, undermining the integrity of the next election, and violating his oath to the American people. These actions, moreover, were consistent with President Trump’s previous invitations of foreign interference in our 2016 Presidential election.
      And when he was caught—when the House investigated and opened an impeachment inquiry—President Trump engaged in unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance of the impeachment inquiry.
      This gives rise to the second article of impeachment for Obstruction of Congress.
      Here, too, we see a familiar pattern in President Trump’s misconduct. A President who declares himself above accountability, above the American people, and above Congress’s power of impeachment—which is meant to protect against threats to our democratic institutions—is a President who sees himself as above the law.”

    • December 11, 2019 at 12:40 pm

      Chairman Nadler:
      “We must be clear: no one, not even the President, is above the law.
      I want to recognize (lists the great work of Dem team)….
      Later this week, the Judiciary Committee will meet to consider these articles of impeachment, and to make a recommendation to the full House of Representatives. We do not take this action lightly. But we have taken an oath to defend the Constitution and—unlike President Trump—we understand that our duty, first and foremost, is to protect the Constitution and the interests of the American people. That is why we must take this solemn step today.Elections are the cornerstone of democracy and are foundational to the rule of law. But the integrity of our next election is at risk from a President who has already sought foreign interference in the 2016 and 2020 elections, and who consistently puts himself above country.
      That is why we must act now.”

    Mark up tonight at 7pm: “House Democrats will begin work on completing their articles of impeachment against President Trump on Wednesday evening, setting the stage for a vote by the full House.
    The Judiciary Committee is expected to convene at 7 p.m. ET to amend the impeachment legislation introduced Tuesday by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her top committee chairmen and women.
    A second session is expected on Thursday morning at 9. This process, called a markup, would involve proposed changes by committee members to the text of the bill before a vote on whether to refer the measure to the full House. Democrats control the majority on the panel and in the chamber…”

    Read Articles of Impeachment here:
    “This week marked only the fourth time that articles of impeachment have been introduced against a president and, if the House votes to pass them, would be only the third such instance in the history of the Republic.” (npr)

    LOVE her and still really sad that she’s gone from the presidential campaign.

    • December 11, 2019 at 6:10 pm

      imo Senator Harris knew she had to do this.
      This is about the imminent and far future of America + our planet. I believe this is her dharma right now and all else will follow. OK just the way it unfolds…
      –thank you Kamala!!

        I really was a Kamala supporter for Prez or VP for Biden, then Prez. I was very disappointed with her campaign withdrawal. However, she needed to do that in order to be a future VP candidate. Also with the current administration antics going on WE need her in the Senate serving on the Judicial Committee. Some say as the next US Attorney General.
