  1. Dear Democrats: Mueller Just Handed You a Roadmap for Impeachment. Follow It. ".....Listen to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “With respect to whether the President can be found to have obstructed justice by exercising his powers under Article II of the Constitution, we concluded that Congress has authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice,” he writes, adding: “The conclusion that Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law.” Got that? The special counsel — who listed 10 instances of potential obstruction of justice in his report, and refused to “exonerate” the president — placed the decision firmly in your court. This is the impeachment referral you claimed you were waiting for...... Listen to your Republican and Democratic predecessors, who served on the House Judiciary Committee in July 1974, and published three articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon. The first article focused on obstruction of justice and cited the president’s “false or misleading public statements for the purpose of deceiving the people of the United States.” It also cited Nixon’s efforts “to cause prospective defendants, and individuals duly tried and convicted, to expect favored treatment and consideration in return for their silence or false testimony, or rewarding individuals for their silence or false testimony.” I defy any of you to read the special counsel’s report and conclude that this president did not lie, lie and lie again.... Look, I get it. You’re afraid. You’re afraid of the backlash from your Republican counterparts. You’re afraid of losing in the Senate, where — right now — you lack a majority to convict Trump. You’re afraid that impeachment hearings will distract from your party’s 2020 presidential campaign. But your job, first and foremost, is to preserve democracy and protect the rule of law. That’s the job assigned to you by the Constitution and also what’s expected of you by the American people. You cannot walk away from it..... And what, then, is the point of Article II, Section 4, of the Constitution? If you’re not willing to remove this president from office, in the wake of this damning report, you might as well remove the impeachment clause from the Constitution. If not Trump, who? According to the special counsel’s report, Trump’s response to Mueller’s appointment in May 2017 was to exclaim: “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m ****.” Well, House Democrats, the truth is that he isn’t “****” until you do your job...." https://theintercept.com/2019/04/18/dear-democrats-mueller-just-handed-you-a-roadmap-for-impeachment-follow-it/
  2. Ryan Knight #NeedToImpeach 🍑‏ @ProudResister 2h2 hours ago I’m not against @SpeakerPelosi. I supported her 4 Speaker & applaud her legislative wins. But now I’m calling on her to defend the constitution and #ImpeachTrump. Mueller revealed 10 episodes of obstruction and wanted Congress to decide—not Barr. Call her office now 202-225-4965

    Darren Samuelsohn‏Verified account @dsamuelsohn 29m29 minutes ago NEW: Neither Mueller nor anyone else from the special counsel’s prosecution team will be in attendance at the Barr press conference, Mueller spokesman Peter Carr told @politico. But Carr said he'll be there in the role he's returned to handling press on DOJ criminal matters. ==================================== Rachel Maddow MSNBC‏Verified account @maddow 26m26 minutes ago Per @RepJerryNadler , Barr tomorrow is planning to: -- hold his own press conference about Mueller, -- without Mueller there, -- well before anyone will be allowed access to even Barr's redacted version of Mueller's findings. Why? Where's Mueller?

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    'Keep your mouth shut’: Dems erupt over Barr’s Mueller report rollout Lawmakers are accusing the attorney general of trying to spin Mueller’s findings. "...“I’m deeply troubled by reports that the WH is being briefed on the Mueller report AHEAD of its release,” tweeted House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler. The New York Democrat added that DOJ informed him that lawmakers will not receive the report until around 11 a.m. or 12 p.m. Thursday. “Why is William Barr holding a press conference if not to (once again) try and frame the Special Counsel’s findings,” tweeted Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), a member of the House Judiciary Committee. “Just release the full report and let the American people judge for themselves!” Democrats were also incensed that Trump, in a radio interview, revealed Barr’s press event minutes before the Justice Department officially announced it — another suggestion that the White House and Justice Department were coordinating ahead of the report’s public release. A DOJ spokeswoman later said the press conference was not Trump’s idea. Trump said in the same interview that he might hold his own press event afterward. “Pretty convenient of the attorney general to take questions on the report before anyone has a chance to read the report,” Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.), a Judiciary Committee member, wrote on Twitter. The uproar came as The New York Times reported that DOJ officials have had “numerous conversations” with White House lawyers about Mueller’s conclusions..... https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/17/william-barr-mueller-report-1280585

    AOC releases 'Green New Deal' short film "......In the video, the New York Democrat narrates as if speaking from the future, talking about how the U.S. “kicked off our social and ecological transformation to save the planet.” Titled “The Art of the Green New Deal,” a nod to President Trump’s 1987 book, the film published by The Intercept shows artist Molly Crabapple painting watercolor images, with the footage sped up, while Ocasio-Cortez discusses the policy proposal. Ocasio-Cortez outlines a history of ignoring climate change, describing the present as years where “fossil fuel companies made hundreds of billions while the public paid the lion's share to clean up their disasters.” She then envisions a turning point...... https://thehill.com/homenews/house/439337-ocasio-cortez-releases-green-new-deal-short-film

    NBC News‏Verified account @NBCNews 2m2 minutes ago House Judiciary Cmte. Chairman Nadler says "deeply troubled" by NYTimes report that DOJ has been briefing White House on Mueller report before release, and "DOJ is informing us we will not receive the report until around 11/12 tomorrow afternoon — AFTER Barr’s press conference."
  10. "......For some, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., taxing wealth — as opposed to income — is the answer, a proposal that sets her apart in a Democratic field that largely agrees on rolling back the tax cuts for corporations and top earners that were backed by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans. Others in the field, like former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, support a wealth tax but have not released specific plans. And the Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders has proposed hiking the estate tax, something he estimates would hit the small fraction of Americans who inherit more than $3.5 million. The idea of taxing the rich more isn't just popular among the Patriotic Millionaires. In fact, 63 percent of voters think higher-income people pay too little in taxes, according to a Politico-Morning Consult online poll. And Warren's plan plays well across party lines — with 74 percent of Democrats backing her proposal and half of Republicans, in that same poll......"

    The White House's Mueller reaction plan has a wild card: Trump The president's aides have prepared an extensive spin operation ahead of Thursday's release. ".....So on Thursday, the president’s hands will not be idle: Trump and the first lady will host an event for wounded warriors before he meets with the secretary of state and then departs for a long Easter weekend at Mar-a-Lago, according to his public schedule and a Federal Aviation Administration notice. The goal for Thursday is to use the bully pulpit of the White House to give the appearance of a president consumed by the demands of his office. Former President Bill Clinton often leaned on the same playbook at key moments during the Starr investigation — a historical example Trump’s lawyers have studied closely. Meanwhile, a well-greased spin machine will start whirring to life at the two main arms of the president’s reelection effort — the Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign, aiming to shape perceptions of Mueller’s findings in his favor. The attorney general is also planning to host a televised 9:30 a.m. news conference about the report, the Justice Department announced — and the president is contemplating holding one of his own....... https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/17/mueller-report-reaction-trump-1279886

    ISRAEL MIDDLE EAST NEWS

    The Illusion of Trump’s Mideast Peace Plan Kushner and Greenblatt have us focused on a plan that may never appear, while they are making the possibility of a two-state solution disappear. "llusionists follow a standard formula: display an ordinary object (the pledge); make it disappear (the turn); and then, abracadabra, bring it back (the prestige). In truth, all the illusionist has done is distract the audience from the real action, which makes magic shows the perfect analogy to the moribund Israeli-Palestinian peace process. U.S. and Israeli illusionists have us focused on a plan that may never appear, while they are making the possibility of a two-state solution disappear. The pledge: United States officials responsible for the peace process—President Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner, former Trump Corporation attorney Jason Greenblatt, and former Trump bankruptcy lawyer David Friedman—have asked us to focus on what Trump boasted in 2016 would be the “deal of the century.” Since then, Kushner and Greenblatt have claimed to be crafting a peace plan. They have talked about the existence of a plan, but also have kept its details secret.......... Meanwhile the Palestinians, seeing the plan for the first time, understand there is virtually nothing to applaud and much to decry. They say, “No.” The illusionists and Israel cite Palestinian rejection as evidence that the Palestinians never intended to compromise, that there is no partner for peace. The “prestige” leads to an open road, free of roadblocks, on which Israel, with U.S. support, can achieve a new reality in the occupied territories—Israeli sovereignty over parts of the West Bank and permanent Israeli control over the Palestinian population, who remain without political rights. ..... https://prospect.org/article/illusion-trumps-mideast-peace-plan#.XLeDO_kqba8.twitter

    Bernie Sanders!

    Just After Sanders Revealed Fox Viewers' Approval of Medicare for All, Trump's Medicare Chief 'Smears' Program on Network Trump appointee Seema Verma claimed a Medicare for All system would be financially ruinous to the U.S. and American families—a claim which has been repeatedly debunked ".....studies including one by the Koch brothers-linked Mercatus Institute have revealed that the proposal would cost less than the current for-profit system. While Sanders's proposal is expected to cost about $32 trillion over 10 years, the current system costs American families $3.5 trillion per year according to Verma's own agency. This puts projected healthcare costs at $35 trillion over a decade—if they stay exactly the same each year.... https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/04/17/just-after-sanders-revealed-fox-viewers-approval-medicare-all-trumps-medicare-chief
