On Thursday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a press conference where she explained that the House of Representatives would begin drafting the articles of impeachment in the case of Donald J. Trump. For his part, President Trump screamed something onto Twitter with his stubby, greasy, corrupt little fingers, and then went back to watching whatever it is Fox News calls programming these days.
In the fog of information out there one thing is clear: nobody likes corruption. No one supports a clear abuse of power … except of course Republican officials and people still blathering about Hillary Clinton’s emails. But the hashtag #AmericansForImpeachment began trending and really took off, because people support the Democratic Party’s attempts to visit law and order and justice upon Donald J. Trump for his crimes.

And you have to have the requisite Mandalorian meme at some point.

And the facts.
Trump is facing a majority of #AmericansForImpeachment.
Polling says that more voters believe inviting foreign election interference is wrong, but haven't been swayed to back removal yet.

Impeaching Trump is the right thing to do. It may cost Dems votes. It may not. It may result in removal from office. It may not. First things first…do the right thing. Don't let the gas-lighting get you. The facts are clear. He is a criminal. #AmericansForImpeachment

And a reminder, Speaker Pelosi is dead serious about this and will not be sidetracked by Sinclair Broadcasting misinformation hackery.
Whoa, Speaker Pelosi just slammed a reporter for asking if she hates the president.
"DON'T MESS WITH ME when it comes to words like that."

No one is above the law — not even the president. Call (202) 224-3121 and demand that your senators put country over party. 🇺🇸 #ImpeachmentTaskForce #AmericansForImpeachment pic.twitter.com/1cbC8c7lsQ

The stakes are as high as they have ever been.
God Bless America!

And there’s a need to push out the majority voices in our country since there seems to be a strange way the traditional news outlets are handling what is a legal question, not a political gamesmanship one.
Just saw CNN do another segment trying to prove that American voters don't care about the case against Trump.
Corporate media may not want their ratings cash cow removed but sooo many voters (whom they refuse to interview) do. #AmericansForImpeachment

This is an important distinction, because a meme like this one only exists because the GOP has turned this process into a political issue over an issue of corruption.

This President gave quite literally tax cuts to the ultra-wealthy and took food away from poor children. He's getting off easy with #AmericansForImpeachment. Historically this sort of unscrupulous treachery is settled with guillotines.

And a reminder of the kind of cowardice leading our country, just because I’m spiteful.
