Madame Speaker's number in Washington: 202-225-0100

Please call. Ring it off the hook. Express your displeasure at her inaction. I just did.

3. You'd rather lose voters?

I am here as a witness... her inaction is discouraging people.

5. You do what you gotta do.

Nancy has been attacked repeatedly over the last few years even after ushering in the blue wave. The animosity toward her has been proven shortsighted time and time again. Enough is enough.

7. Animosity?

That's your mischaracterization, not my mindset.

Also, "ushering in the blue wave"? Says who? Like it wasn't going to happen without her? Says who?

8. Holy shit.

Says history. Itís what happened.

Your denial is odd. And your anger misplaced.

9. They can't investigate because all the witnesses are

refusing to comply with subpoenas.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/20/politics/mehta-opinion-trump-subpoena-case/index.html

Congress has the power to investigate without impeachment...page 24 of 41 judgement at link...

I am just not in the camp of putting the cart before the horse...all is NOT doomed...Rep Pelosi, speaker of the House is letting the individual committees work through the congressional process, leave no stone unturned, there will be a drip. drip, drip of information..

Anyone who lived through the Nixon Watergate era, KNOWS, it takes time....

Witnesses refusing to comply with subpoena...hold that thought....

15. You think impeachment proceedings will somehow make these witnesses comply with subpoenas?

It's the same process. They'll respond to it the same way. And the enforcement mechanisms are exactly the same.

18. This is what I don't get

Why do so many on this board believe impeachment will magically open doors? If Dotard and Co are ignoring subpoenas now, why couldn't or wouldn't they ignore them in an impeachment hearing?

19. Exactly. And they'd be MORE likely to ignore them (if that's even possible) since the stakes would

be much higher.

Many people are under the misapprehension that impeachment hearings will give the Congress more "clout" with the courts or otherwise make the courts see their position more favorably. But the law is the law, regardless whether we're talking about oversight or impeachment. And while it's possible a judge might move faster in an impeachment out of some sense of urgency, that's not definite - a judge is going to move as a judge wants to move.

And, as we saw with Judge Mehta's decision yesterday, a judge doesn't need to be operating within an impeachment context in order to issue a rapid-turnaround smackdown.

It's namby pamby, gutless, ineffective, and discouraging.

20. "Let them know daily"

It would be better to convince other people to call rather than calling repeatedly yourself. The offices that I've worked with tend to consider only the number of unique callers, not the number of times the same few people call. They all have Caller ID.

"Don't waste her office's time. She knows how you feel"

"Let them know daily, hourly--day after day"

It would seem that after the first call, your assertion about wasting the office's time would apply to the local rep's offices, as well. After the first call, they're aware of how you feel. I'm not sure that calling them hourly is going to accomplish anything.

22. Yes, if that is true, help spread the word

put it out on your facebook, twitter or other social media. Send an email to every one of your contacts. I guess you could even put an ad in the paper. I think I'll change my sig line to that.
