He was already blocked.

Another good rule of thumb is don’t block the follower list of a verified account, no matter how horrible it is. They are the ones most likely to have normal followers.

You know who hasn’t figured it out? Conspiracy theorists.

Except, the number is growing out of frustration with lack of progress — not because a plan is working. There’s barely a plan and it’s not working.

I think it would batter him, keep him bogged down. One of the biggest reasons 1998 isn’t analogous is because Bill Clinton wanted to talk about anything besides impeachment. Both during and after. The discipline allowed him to focus on good stuff. trump will never stop harping.

What members of Congress have you worked for, for how long?

Definitely don’t give up. There can be a good outcome. I don’t however think the likely way to achieve it is to blindly defer to someone — no matter how much you respect them. Speaker Pelosi has well reasoned & articulated concerns about impeachment. She needs to be convinced.

To many it’s very unnerving. But for anyone who’s worked in government it’s the main reason the idea of a Deep State is so comical.

We’re feckless. And we can’t even engage in a circular firing squad among ourselves because we don’t believe in guns. We’d throw kale and soy at each other.

Mueller had 438 pages to say.

1st & foremost stop giving trump vetos on hearings. When one is built entirely around McGahn and there’s an 80% chance he says no, trump wins. There are dozens of cooperating witnesses & non-cooperating w/o the balls to say no. Veto-proof then by structuring 2-3 each.

They’ll absolutely resist. Nixon resisted. But when we do it now it’s all over the board. I bet 90% of Americans aware Barr was held in contempt think its Mueller related, not census. 1% might know what Kellyanne is being subpoenaed for. The scattershot approach is the problem.

That’s a great sign, hitting a point where you already have many or most of the accounts blocked. It shows there really is a defined ecosystem of political-related fake accounts that blocking en masse really makes a difference. Sometimes when I block an account only 10% are new.

Three things with last nights procedural votes that make them pretty meaningless to extrapolate from: 1. Pelosi didn’t want it. 2. She was absolutely right because it was stupid timing to even consider before the 24th. 3. It wasn’t related to Russia.

Find nuts like this. 100% fake. Click on their follower list and let it rip. It won’t let you block all 49.3k, but it’ll block a lot. And then you can pick a different account later and do the same thing.

It is for me. I did a batch a bit ago. Twitter just kicks in after a few thousand and cuts it off. I don’t know why but I believe there are limits.

He would ascend. He would not be worse. He’s dangerous ideologically with even more extreme views — but he’d be hobbled. Republicans would know it. Forget about the likelihood of it happening for a moment. If trump resigned tomorrow, Pence would face multiple 2020 challengers.
