What's going on with Adam Schiff?

He's always been one of my favorite Congress members, but he's acting weird lately. He's now siding with Trump and Pompeo on the Iran attack. He's saying he's disturbed that US intel isn't sharing info with Trump about Russian cyber attacks, because they don't trust him..

Schiff has never sided with Trump this much.

Andrew Yang already torpedoed his campaign with one tweet.

I will not support someone who thinks the title of President means you should be immune from any legal consequences for the rest of your life, no matter how many crimes you commit. Get off the stage Yang, you're done.

Sen. King on MSNBC right now.

He's saying impeachment is too divisive and since Republicans won't hold him accountable, there is no point, so the best check is to just let Trump stay in office until 2020 and hope he loses in the election...

I'm really sick of these people. They are abdicating their Constitutional duty and giving everyone a pass to just keep committing crimes in office.

The anger against Democrats for not impeaching is getting stronger.

I imagine a lot of people still live in a bubble and don't realize just how criminal and traitorous Trump is, but social media is exploding right now demanding Democrats start impeachment.

Nadler posted about Trump's foreign dirt comments on twitter and he get destroyed by people demanding less talk on twitter and more action. People are telling him to ignore Pelosi if she won't go through with it (he can initiate impeachment without her.) People are pissed at Hakeem Jeffries MSNBC interview yesterday pushing back against impeachment.

I really think if Democrats refuse to impeach and just wait for 2020, it's going to severely hurt Democrats.

Anyone a fan of Robert Costa, WaPo reporter?

Watch him a lot on MSNBC. Just sort of met him today/ I was a bit star-struck though and stupidly didn't tell him I enjoy his work and watch him all the time.

Aaron Schock, former Congress Rep. outed as gay.

You may know him as the good-lucking Republican who was indicted for using campaign funds to decorate his office like Downtown Abbey.

Well, he was caught at Coachella partying with gay men, and even making out with a gay guy with his hand down his pants.

He of course is well known for being one of the most anti-gay Republicans in Congress - constantly voting on bills that harm LGBT people.

I always suspected he was gay after he opted to wear this:




One thing that frustrates me like crazy: Trolls/Bots on Social Media

I realize a lot of people don't belong to social media for this reason, but I get a lot of my news by following reporters/Dems on twitter. Anytime CNN, or Adam Schiff, or somebody else perceived as being favorable to Dems posts something on twitter, they get an endless barrage of trolls, bots, and Trump cult members flooding the threads with flat out lies and nonsense.

It often to amounts to "There is nothing to impeach Trump for." "Trump hasn't done anything wrong, he's doing a great job." "Dems are just mad Hillary lost." "The Mueller report said no collusion!"

Obviously they're idiots, but it's so frustrating how much influence they have. People who can't spot their lies or realize they're bots will probably be convinced by them if they aren't following the news. It's a real threat to Democracy and companies like Twitter, Facebook, etc. are doing nothing to stop it.

So America is officially a dictatorship now?

There doesn't seem to be anyway to stop this. The American people should have taken to the streets in mass ages ago. At this point, Trump is now a dictator/king and Republicans will never face any consequences.

I feel seriously sick.

Giving campaign data to Russians, coordinating wikileaks, Moscow tower project, Trump tower meeting, asking Russia to hack the DNC and then them doing it, Trump's constant pandering to Putin, lifting sanctions, etc.

How on earth is that not collusion?

Who would you want to work for?

I'm looking into working on a campaign, but can't decide whose campaign to work for. Pete Buttigieg just listed some job openings for his campaign. Just really torn on who to get experience with.
