Republicans continue to dismiss Kent & Taylor's testimonies as hearsay and second-hand information. Yet the people who *do* have firsthand information (Mulvaney, Pompeo, Bolton, etc.) have been directed not to testify. Republicans can't have it both ways.

It is impossible for Republicans to defend Trump's conduct. At this point, their only goal is to prove how loyal they are to their Dear Leader.

The withholding of military aid to Ukraine: - Damaged our national security - Put the lives of Ukrainians at risk - Helped advance Russia's interests This impeachment inquiry isn't about defeating Trump. It's about restoring the integrity of our nation.

Important baseline. Our national security was compromised by Donald Trump because the freeze on Ukraine aid emboldened and emboldens Russian military aggression, against the security interests of the US and that of our western democratic allies.

The juxtaposition between George Kent and Bill Taylor, two career public servants dedicated to protecting our nation's security, and Devin Nunes, a partisan hack job spouting conspiracy theories, is stunning.

Don't be distracted by Trump's propaganda machine. He has been intent on advancing his personal political and financial interests at the cost of America's national interests.

When Trump and Turkish dictator Erdogan meet at WH today, will they discuss Turkey’s deployment of Russian missile-defense system? Putin's success in driving wedge between NATO and Turkey? America's sacrifice of our Kurdish allies? Turkey's release of ISIS prisoners? No chance.

Republicans are going to conduct a circus today to try and create as much confusion as they can. Don't let their tactics distract you from the truth. Trump held up military aide to Ukraine b/c he wanted them to investigate Joe Biden, his political opponent. Case closed.

Donald Trump’s signature economic initiative was a giant tax cut for big corporations & the wealthy. He promised it would spur economic growth and boost the middle class. So how did it turn out? Two years later, all those promises have come to nothing.

Don't be distracted. Trump held up Ukraine aide, financed by U.S. taxpayers because he wanted Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, his likely political opponent thereby harming America's interest in helping Ukraine stop Russia, to advance his own political agenda.

A senior White House advisor responsible for shaping the administration's immigration policy is a bonafide white nationalist. Let that sink in.

I’ve seen many interviews with billionaires about the candidacies of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Has anyone done a similarly well-publicized, primetime interview with a person on food stamps or in suffocating debt about their candidacies?

Donald Trump and his enablers have been making claims about widespread voter fraud — even though these myths have been repeatedly debunked. Our new video explains how they use these myths as an excuse to pass restrictive voting laws and disenfranchise millions of Americans.

Your reminder that the denigration of our democratic ideals for political gain is an insult to our servicemembers’ sacrifice.

There are basically 5 ways to accumulate a billion dollars in America: 1) Profiting from a monopoly 2) Insider-trading 3) Political payoffs 4) Fraud 5) Inheritance None of these has anything to do with being successful in the supposed free market.
