(THREAD) Media has yet to do a deep dive on precisely what Trump *said* in his January 6 speech in DC—a speech now called an "incitement to insurrection," and the basis for an article of impeachment coming Monday. This thread unpacks the speech. I hope you'll read on and RETWEET.
Speaker Pelosi to '60 Minutes': "Sadly, the person that's running the Executive Branch is a deranged, unhinged, dangerous president of the United States ... He has done something so serious that there should be prosecution against him."
He’s deranged, unhinged and dangerous. He must go.
Some people ask: Why would you impeach and convict a president who has only a few days left in office? The answer: Precedent. It must be made clear that no president, now or in the future, can lead an insurrection against the U.S. government.
I've seen enough. Jon Ossoff (D) defeats Sen. David Perdue (R) in GA's other Senate runoff. #GASEN
Democrats win control of the Senate.
I haven’t seen enough. I could watch our democracy triumph all night long. And if I don’t get to bed soon, I might.
I share a Christmas memory of an early lesson in empathy, courtesy of my mother during the Great Depression. (Excerpt from #WhatUnitesUs). May this spirit be imbued once more in our nation. Merry Christmas to all of you. Thank you for joining me on this improbable journey.
“No more blind quotes. No more silence. Now is the time to speak out against a man who’s actually attempting to dismantle democracy to stay in power,” @AliVelshi says of the Trump officials who’ve remained silent while Pres. Trump tries to subvert the results of the election.
