Juuuuuust going to guess you are misrepresenting the situation like all good seditionists do.
We remember 1/6 Rep. Hartzler. You incited an attempted violent overthrow of an election.
I would take this more seriously if it weren’t from an anti-American seditionist.
And what would you call your vote to overturn a free and fair election???
I’ll give you a hint:
Where were you on January 6th? #NeverForget
There was that pizza party in the SCIF, too.
Coming from a insurrectionist that’s just humorous
Pot, meet Kettle.
You are conveniently forgetting your part in the attempted violent overthrowing of the US Government.
The Republican Party
Seditionist says what? Point out where exactly that Maxine called for any violence. She simply called for the people of Minnesota to continue to hold police forces accountable for white cops killing unarmed black people. You are a disgrace to our state.
You should talk about division. You supported insurection, and if you had a conscience you’d resign before your expelled.
And @RepHartzler has done what about the bounty on troops?
@RepHartzler continues to support Trump despite domestic terrorism?
As an Army spouse (and a constituent of yours) I’m troubled by your refusal to see that some have been radicalized by Q conspiracies. I first heard about Q via an army spouse who had lost her husband down the conspiracy hole. Please don’t downplay the need for the conversation
I disagree. It’s better to be safe than sorry. There is evidence that there are some white supremacists in law enforcement. They should absolutely be questioning the guards given the recent attacks.
We’ve all got very good reason to be concerned about loyalty at the moment.
Plus you refused to certify the vote of the people. That’s a darker stain on the nation than a careful inspection of the troops after an insurrection.
I see you have received your talking points.
It’s all in the timing…
..and feigned outrage.
Then announce that the election was legitimate and you will support the new administration. You have stoked the flames of this mess.
Do you want us to not question anyone in the National Guard, but you’re fine with questioning the FBI? What you’re doing doesn’t make sense, Rep. Hartzler.
From an active duty law enforcement officer’s lips to your ears, Rep. Harztler. Stop denying facts. Doing so endangers us all. [….]
Your dismissal endanger us all. You must delete this tweet and follow up with accurate info, Rep. Hartzler. [….]
Sit down Vicky Sit down [….]
You are not doing a good job representing your constituents.
For ten years.
Seems prudent to me, but I still remember January 6, 2021 when insurrectionist included police officers, National Guardsmen, and retired military.
You must have been busy that day and weren’t paying attention.
There were National Guard members in the mob who wanted to kill VP Pence. What makes you think they were all caught?
Uh, did you not see Jan. 6? Also, you caused all of this. Don’t try to pretend that somehow you, or Trump supporters, are the victim. The president certainly doesn’t have loyalty to America. And neither do you. [….]
Uhmmm…some particated in an insurrection so…
Sadly, people like you have spread lies and conspiracy’s that have caused a number of Americans to mount an insurrection. We wouldn’t have to vet anyone if you would tell the truth to your constituents. Your embrace of lies make you culpable in the armed coup.
Former and Active military members and police officers were part of the group that stormed the Capitol a week ago.
The FBI is obligated to research credible threats.
You can respect the troops while vetting them.
Maybe you should get all the facts before you shoot your mouth off. [….]
Has that ever happened before? Just asking.
Stop with the conservative victimhood narrative. Vetting for insider threats is routinely done in the military. [….]
Is there no end to the babbling hypocrisy of Republicans? How about that insurrection? STFU
You spent weeks going along with the lie that the election was stolen and believers of your lie murdered a police officer. Dont talk about reckless
Maybe if there was not Trump supporting insurrectionist already arrested that are members of the Nat’l Guard and law enforcement, we would not be having to do this. They should be doing the same thing to the members of Congress and they can start with you.
Cold. That’s cold.
Steve Cohen?! The fried chicken fool?! His comments are not to be heeded.
Must be a Faux News Channel talking head. Am I correct?
Where is YOUR loyalty to America, Vicky? All we’ve seen from you is refusal to certify election results which aligned you with the insurrectionists. Oh and, bs Republican talking points. Party over country once again.
Just shut up for once.
Oh so you know more than the Generals too, huh?
There is something fundamentally wrong with you people. There were many former & current firemen, police, political office holders, etc just 10 days ago running amok in DC trying to murder the VP, and it’s the height of white arrogance to suggest there aren’t any there now.
Vicky you want to know what’s really divisive? Lying about election results so much that leads to our Capitol being stormed by some of the White supremacists in the military that we’ve been warning about for years.

Dear Mr. Dorsey:
Twitter’s unprecedented decision to single out the President for disfavor, based on his political speech, is alarming. Yesterday, for the first time ever, Twitter branded the President’s tweets with a “fact check” designed to encourage readers to believe that the President’s political speech was inaccurate. Twitter’s decision to editorialize regarding the content of political speech raises questions about why Twitter should continue receiving special status and special immunity from publisher liability under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
Twitter’s “fact check” raises serious questions about whether Twitter targeted the President for political reasons. Employees working for the team responsible for Twitter’s fact-checking policies have a stark history of derogatory comments against both the President and people who voted for him. For example, Twitter’s Head of Site Integrity encouraged people to “fly over” states like Missouri because Missourians supposedly “voted for a racist tangerine.” That employee also called people who work for the President “actual Nazis.”
Meanwhile, where has Twitter been in response to the outright lies and propaganda by the Chinese Communist Party and its so-called “wolf warriors,” busy blaming American soldiers for the start of COVID-19 on social media? Will Twitter also “fact check” these outrageous statements? What about other candidates for political office, like former Vice-President Joe Biden? Will Twitter editorialize regularly in response to his comments on social media? Or will Twitter only go after people its employees dislike?
Instead of allowing viewers to look at the dialogue around the President’s tweets and assess for themselves the merits of the President’s views, Twitter decided to editorialize, appending its own comments and assessment to the President’s speech. But editorializing is what publishers do, like the New York Times and the Washington Post. Your company is treated very differently from publishers, as you know. Traditional publishers are liable when they mess up. But under Section 230, Twitter receives a special government carve-out that shields it from liability. That statute tells courts to treat Twitter like a passive distributor of third-party content. Twitter’s decision to affix its own editorial content to users’ posts brings into question the basis for that immunity.
It makes little sense to treat companies that publish their editorial comments about others’ content as if they are mere distributors. Companies that act like publishers should be treated like publishers. Section 230 should not treat Twitter and neutral internet service providers in the same way when they function so differently.
Please send a prompt response by June 15 identifying the sources on which Twitter relied to decide to editorialize regarding the President’s political speech, and please explain why you think that companies that act like publishers should not be treated like publishers.
“…Twitter’s ‘fact check’ raises serious questions about whether Twitter targeted the President for political reasons…”
Only a shameless, albeit not very competent, hack would characterize presenting facts as political targeting.
It’s not a serious question, that’s just your arrogance in believing the rest of us are too stupid to realize what you’re doing and who you really are.
The man breaks every Term and Condition of use and threatens people using the service, and they _one time_ point out that he’s lying to undermine our democracy, and you call that a “war”.
Factchecking isn’t censorship.
You are worse than pathetic, Thirsty McScapegoatFace.
Dude, you are lost.
Bruh, you’re really doing this as a constitutional lawyer? LMAO. Good luck.
Identifying lies from the president isn’t censorship.
Blah Blah Blah
No censorship was done, just a link added to the actual facts @realDonaldTrump doesn’t know.
I think the war on Covid could use some of your attention. 100,000 dead and rising…
“Censorship” would be kicking him off the platform. This is called “refuting Trump’s lies”, a concept with which you’re evidently not familiar.
Kicking him off the platform is well within their rights too. Twitter is not a branch of the government. They are a corporation with a written terms of service we all sign up to. trump should have been removed a long time ago based on the TOS.
Distract, distract, distract.
Geeze Senator… Could you skip a day from being on Fox News to host a virtual town hall or something? Everyday it’s about Google, Fox, FB, Hong Kong… What about Missouri?
He doesn’t give a damn about Missourians. He is a career politician.
You mean, like a ladder climber?
@realDonaldTrump tweet was neither suppressed or prohibited. A disclaimer was added, so, not censorship.
Perhaps you could spend more time & energy working to bolster the educational quality in your state? Clearly, you are a poster child for the shortcomings of a MO education.
Actually, he attended one of those fancy ones.
You are acting malicious on purpose. If something should be considered federal offense this type of gas-lighting should be it. Censorship is suppression/prohibition of something. Trump was not prohibited (unfortunately) from tweeting bs he tweets. They simply pointed to facts!
Twitter is a private corporation with the right to do what they want with its users. What you’re proposing is literal fascism.
No censorship happened – quite the opposite – free forum for him to use – but not to lie unabashedly
– he has been Tweeting non-stop – calling out his BS or giving an alternate view is not censorship – WTF ?
By all means, do that, not discuss the 100,000 dead Americans.
Censorship? Really? How about a grown ass man being responsible for his words?
Of course you are. Grandstanding for Trump, not Missourians.
You are so embarrassing to MO
How do people with such a profound lack of understanding, or such obvious willingness to lie about their understanding of what “censorship” really is, have the balls to go on TV and proclaim their disingenuousness? It must be utter stupidity or zero shame, I guess. Or both.
Partisan hack is too afraid to venture outside the Fox News bubble. Worthless…just like his leader.
@realDonaldTrump if you don’t like it, don’t use it. Twitter is a company that has terms of service. If you don’t like those terms of service, move on. Everyone knows that you are just defecting hoping no one notices that 100,000 Americans are dead because of your stupidity.
How does this concern the state of Missouri? You’re our representative in Congress. Not Donald Trump’s.
Mr “Constitutional lawyer”. The 1st Amendment protects citizen’s free speech from government censorship. You are literally advocating for the government to violate Twitters 1A rights so the President can lie without getting his feelings hurt. Could you be more of a partisan hack?
This is fucking pathetic. You suck at being an American, Josh.
You are simply an attention whore, a clown masquerading as a senator. You care for your Missouri constitutes like trump cares for Americans: not at all. You are both motivated only by self interest, and are morally bankrupt. Resign.
Josh Hawley (r) [2016 file photo].
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
This is the guy the Never Trumpers say will usher in a new era of civility?
[….] 3:09 PM · Mar 10, 2020
The responses are hilarious:
You can’t use tRump and civility in the same sentence. They just don’t compute.
Don’t you have some senatoring to do? Asking as a voting Missourian.
Indeed. There is no greater act of political courage and civility than sternly rebuking those who are dividing our country by voting for candidates we don’t like. Can’t wait to cast my vote for #CivilJoe
A lot of us are more concerned about the administrations handling o f COVID-19. Not only do we care about the effects on our parents and grandparents, but also on those that can’t afford health insurance and the fact many rural hospitals have closed in MO.
He thinks pearl clutching has better optics with his base.
Just to clarify, does this mean that you don’t agree with how our current president carries himself?
If that’s the standard you’re setting, please make sure to offer your commentary on his behavior similarly.
Not gonna happen.
Sycophants gotta sycophant.
Well, to be fair, your Dear Leader has set the bar pretty damned low on the whole civility thing.
And you would say Trump is more civil? You’re deaf, blind and not too smart if you really believe that. Biden is blunt, that is true. But the other guy was saying things that flat were not true. And Biden had the nerve to say so.
Shouldn’t you be more concerned about getting Covid-19 testing kits to Missouri?
It’s still a far cry from assigning a derogatory nickname and joking about grabbing married women by the pu**y, Josh. Did they teach you the saying about glass houses at your fancy private schools?
Your “guy” has said far worse about women’s bodies.
Biden played the NRA plant correctly – good for Joe
Prefect way to respond to an ignorant comment like the guy made. Common sense gun reform is not anti 2A. Joe knows not to let them frame the debate in their bullshit terms. Good on
Maybe the NRA has learned that sending their plants to Joe’s rallies doesn’t end well for them.
Give ’em hell Joe! Tell the truth on ’em and make ’em think it’s hell!*
Paraphrased from President Harry Truman
Well, Josh…your party’s leader is Trump…makes fun of the disabled, refers to other countries as $hitholes, sleeps around, 5 kids with 3 women, and also uses profanity.
Yeah. You don’t get to talk about civility. You enabled Trump.

Rep Vicky Hartzler (r) (left) Rep. Joe Wilson (r) (right). Warrensburg, Missouri – September 18, 2012.
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
There were names of people who died for their country in that speech, names of families who lost a loved one, people struggling with cancer, stories of a young man’s aspirations, a military family reunited.
But on September 15, 2009 Kevin McCarthy (r) was cool with Joe Wilson (r).
Marching isn’t a particularly great metaphor. Unless it’s a warning.
There was much hilarity in the responses:
Where was this concern when Trump attacked a Gold Star Family? Where was this concern when Trump said soldiers hospitalized with concussions after the Iranian attack on our airbase just had headaches?
From the time Trump entered the chamber as a guest and refused to shake his host’s hand, the speech became an embarrassing political rally/reality show/award show circus. Pelosi simply added her act, and in so doing, make him into a sideshow.
Please save us all the sob story, you don’t care about the troops until you need votes…
Considering he’s denigrated gold star families, TBI sufferers and even men who spent years in a POW camp for this country I think you should sit this one out. Your selective outrage towards the treatment of military members is pathetic and plainly self-serving.
BABYJAILS are OK, though.
Bunch of bs in there, too. But you know that, vicky. As does #kievinmccarthy #GOPBetrayedAmerica
Also numerous lies, half truths and misinformation. God bless the speaker of the house.
Now do all the lies.
a document of lies isn’t made sacred by including a few names
Lol the GOP has ripped up the constitution so you all have no room to talk
No, Republicans March ahead on the backs and Souls of the American People. Disgraceful!
She should have thrown it in his face!
There are babies in cages , babies & children who have died in that speech. Children & Seniors who can’t get their medicine due to him in that speech. There are Multiple lies in that speech. Awarding a racist is in that speech. Stop it.
Trump used all as props. Grifter til the end.
The speech was riddled w lies and disinformation. It belongs in the garbage can.
Lie, deny, deflect, attack. The trump playbook!
Keep Clutching your pearls; #NancyIsAllOfUs
Plus lots of lies, exaggerations and false achievements.
Perhaps she should have had it bound and placed in a gold leaf cover? #TrumpCult
There were also a bunch of lies in that speech. But, you know as well as I, trump can’t open his mouth without lying. In fact, trump will lie when the truth would suit him better. And, giving Rush the Presidential Medal of Freedom is dishonored *all* the previous recipients.
Spare me your false outrage. How many gold star families has Trump insulted?
Your feigned outrage is ridiculous. You’re in a cult. The first step is admitting you have a problem.
Kids in cages is still acceptable though.
How disingenuous of you. While Trump may have “used” some truly honorable Americans in his speech he did disservice to them and the rest of us with the lies he told, as always. The lies are what we reject, not the people. Use your head.
If I write Vicky Hartzler on a piece of paper and tear it up, will you feel it? Will it bother you? Will it change anything? Also, your pearls are getting sweaty, stop clutching them.
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
For 6 weeks, @SpeakerPelosi and @RepAdamSchiff have been selectively leaking portions of the transcripts in an effort to build a pre-emptive narrative against @realDonaldTrump.
Following House Rule XI, all materials need to be made available to all Members of Congress.
And here we have another one not paying attention to the turning tide. Better get on board Hartzler before the Trumptanic goes down. There’s ice in the water. Impeach Trump!
“I gotta get to the airport”
Inquiry or not, Trump pressured foreign governments to interfere in U.S. elections on live television, on the White House lawn in broad daylight and made it as clear as possible.
You can’t honestly sit there & tell the ppl YOU work for that you have to “wait on the facts”
Remember the summary of the Mueller report that was released by Barr that outright lied about what the report said? I do.
There are republicans on the committee. If there was anything favorable to y’all, it would be leaked. You’re hiding behind this talking point.
Cool, cool. Are you going to read them? Cause they all corroborate the same thing: Trump held our taxpayer dollars hostage from a congressionally approved purpose to extort a foreign leader to politcally benefit himself.
Hi @RepHartzler I saw the video of you scurrying off from a reporter asking you if you think it’s ok for a President to seek help find dirt on an opponent. “I got to get to the airport” seems like a poor excuse to answer a yes or no question. Shameful.
Do us a favor when you see it. Read it. Read every word. It’s damning to your president and those who serve him. That includes you.
We are watching to see what you do. Are you going to stand up for our Country and Constitution or are you going to go down with your party?
this is a party ordered tweet. look at the members of the GOP and note their frantic, party line tweets. They do as they’re told. They lie as they’re told.
Are you even reading these releases? Why are you still arguing process? Oh, right…you have nothing to say on substance, because sticking with Trump is a winning stance. Good luck. May history judge you.
Yes, let’s follow rules!
It’s against the rules to withhold federal aid to a foreign country until said country helps you win re-election.
It’s against the rules for people to break into a SCIF, especially with their damn cell phones on and recording.
Trump’s DOJ/Bill Barr is the only party guilty of “pre-emptive narratives.” His memo dismissing Mueller rept, misleading the country, and furthering a conspiracy theory that “Ukraine did it! Not Russia!” which has led us here, against findings of ALL US INTEL is blatantly corrupt
Republicans have been part of every one of those depositions. And the transcripts will keep coming. You are looking for Mr. Volker’s, I presume?
Been reading it. You know, it’s easily available from the House Intelligence Committee web site.
You’re not interested in reading. You are just prolonging the inevitable.
Abuse of power
Obstruction of Congress
Using the office of the Presidency for personal gain.
Aiding and abetting a foreign power
Be careful what you wish for.
All will be revealed.
Oh, now GOP wants to follow rules? How about starting with testifying when subpoenaed?
I know you might be at the airport, but do you think it’s ok for the president to ask a foreign government to interfere in our election? Pretty easy yes or no question
Just focus on getting to the Airport.
Chicken shit!! Answer the question!!
Did you make it to the airport?
Will you actually read them? Your colleagues are already saying they’ll refuse to read any transcripts.
Sounds a bit like a pre-emptive decision to me.
They weren’t leaks they were opening statements that is different then actual testimony. This shouldn’t have be explained to you.
Until the completely un-redacted notes of the Ukraine call are released, and the completely un-redacted Mueller report are released, you’re just another hypocritical Trumper sycophant.
She doesn’t hold town halls, that is why folks have to ask questions on Twitter platform, of course she doesn’t respond.
Vicky Hartzler has become Missouri’s version of Devin Nunes!
Do you think it’s ok for a President of the Unites States to solicit help from a foreign government for political purposes. #ExtortionistTrump
Is it ok for a president to ask a foreign government to interfere in our elections?
You can’t answer a simple f-ing question whether or not its ok to shake down a country for dirt on an opponent. Yes or No?
Congresswoman, do you think it’s okay for the president to pressure foreign governments to I reference in our elections? Asking for a friend, they’re still waiting on your answer.
Not like he isn’t building his own narrative for impreachment.
Why? You guys are saying you’re not going to read it anyway.
Sondland testified Trump and Pence committed crimes of quid pro quo….
Be careful what you say to @SpeakerPelosi, she might be our new president.
the depositions are being released.
you know that.
Why won’t you say whether you think it is okay for a President to extort taxpayer money from an ally unless they interfere in our elections? It is a simple yes or no question. Do you uphold the constitution or not?
And you know why we know that none of the testimonies help Trump, because Republicans haven’t leaked them already.
Face it Vicky, you are part of the most corrupt party in our nations history and all you have left is to complain about the process.
And then, like Lindsey Graham, they’ll choose not to read or believe it if it shows Trump did anything wrong. You’re another spineless coward that can’t even answer a straight question. Do your job.
You mean like the Barr memo?
Why are you defending a criminal in office #ExtortionistTrump
Until the had the formal hearing @RepHartzler it was an investigation. I guess you’re not bright enough to know that or just stupid and want to chime in and go along with the other ignorant republicans say keep saying this stupid shit over and over again. Join the idiots.
Hey Vicky what are your thoughts on Presidential Bribery ? You have your own thoughts ?
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…
Dear Colleague on Next Steps in House’s Ongoing Impeachment Inquiry
October 28, 2019 Press Release
H. Res. ___ — Directing certain committees to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing House of Representatives inquiry into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America, and for other purposes.
Dear Democratic Colleague,
For weeks, the President, his Counsel in the White House, and his allies in Congress have made the baseless claim that the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry “lacks the necessary authorization for a valid impeachment proceeding.” They argue that, because the House has not taken a vote, they may simply pretend the impeachment inquiry does not exist.
Of course, this argument has no merit. The Constitution provides that the House of Representatives “shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.” Multiple past impeachments have gone forward without any authorizing resolutions. Just last week, a federal court confirmed that the House is not required to hold a vote and that imposing such a requirement would be “an impermissible intrusion on the House’s constitutional authority.” More than 300 legal scholars have also refuted this argument, concluding that “the Constitution does not mandate the process for impeachment and there is no constitutional requirement that the House of Representatives authorize an impeachment inquiry before one begins.”
The Trump Administration has made up this argument – apparently out of whole cloth – in order to justify its unprecedented cover-up, withhold key documents from multiple federal agencies, prevent critical witnesses from cooperating, and defy duly authorized subpoenas.
This week, we will bring a resolution to the Floor that affirms the ongoing, existing investigation that is currently being conducted by our committees as part of this impeachment inquiry, including all requests for documents, subpoenas for records and testimony, and any other investigative steps previously taken or to be taken as part of this investigation.
This resolution establishes the procedure for hearings that are open to the American people, authorizes the disclosure of deposition transcripts, outlines procedures to transfer evidence to the Judiciary Committee as it considers potential articles of impeachment, and sets forth due process rights for the President and his Counsel.
We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump Administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives.
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
After weeks of closed-door investigations, withholding info from all Members of Congress, Schiff mishandling the whistleblower’s complaint, and selective leaks from secret meetings, Pelosi is now interested in “establishing the procedure.”
Aside from the fact that republican members of the relevant committees can and have been present for the depositions.
There is much hilarity in the responses:
Except for the 48 Republicans with access to the committees, and by default, the information. Try again, liar. #resignvicky
That fact that you will not accept the evidence that has been presented is what is appalling. #CountryOverParty
Newsflash: there is nothing Pelosi can do to satisfy the “process” concerns of Republicans.
They will change their demands, over and over and over, shamelessly, because guess what…
(whisper voice) this isn’t really about the “process”…
Ms. Hartzler – you must be thrilled! The GOP is getting what they want. Time to thank Speaker Pelosi.
Yeah, that was probably sarcasm.
Darn them for giving you what you asked for. How dare they!
Pelosi just called your bluff! #icallbullshit
This is a lie. You know that Republican members of the Congressional committees overseeing the impeachment inquiry had access to information revealed in the hearings.
dang it…. we know the names of all the republicans on the committees ; republicans were in the room knothead……what is wrong with you people
She thinks her constituents are stupid.
After weeks of legally confidential investigations, legally restricting access to committee members, the case for impeachment is so strong it is now proceeding in public.
The @GOP is incredibly appalling…
Spot on. Time for the Republicans to find another straw argument. The 20 Republicans that have retired or not seeking reelection understand. They understand that they cannot defend a guilty man.
After weeks of Hartzler lying Vicky still isnt interested in telling the truth. #LiesMatter
Translation: after weeks of initial investigations to see whether the House should proceed with formal impeachment proceedings the Speaker has determined that is the best course of action. So now I have to pretend something else is being done wrong because I can’t defend trump
Here come the televised hearings! What will you say then?
Ma’am I KNOW that you’re aware of how investigations work. It’s behind closed doors so witnesses cannot coordinate – that’s literally a rule of impeachment & investigation. They’re merely gathering information.
You acting like that’s not true is incredibly appalling…
LIAR! Republicans have 47 members on committees and they would rather march into an inquiry and eat pizza than to do their jobs. Republicans defending a corrupt POTUS.
It is appalling that you know this is not true. You lie to your cult hoping they are too intellectually lazy to think for themselves.
As far as procedure the republicans set the rules she is following the last time they had the house.
Yes the hole thing is a huge waist of time and tax payer dollars I guess that’s why they are the do nothing Democrats I hope that my fellow Americans replace all of them involved when it comes time to vote in each of there districts
We rest our case.
You know that Republicans were in the hearings. Stop lying to yourself, your constituents, and the American people.
What’s appalling is your lack of response to this administration’s crimes and the attempt to sweep them under the rug. Can’t wait to vote you out of office.
Well…THAT’S a lie. Is that all ya got?
This is just gaslighting. Do you think we’re not smart enough to see the truth right in front of us? We know that there are GOP members in the meetings. Don’t insult our intelligence by telling outright lies.
The GOP failed to hold Trump within the law. The timing of the resignation of DNI Dan Coats speaks volumes about all that was happening in this administration. If that does not make you question where you should be standing, then maybe you’re not smart enough to be in Congress.
Jumping on the Trump train which is heading right off a cliff? You go, girl.
Yes, procedures are bad things. We should never have them. They might make @realDonaldTrump look worse than he already does. Let’s encourage chaos and lying.
Could be sarcasm.
They never withheld info from all members of Congress. If you were on those three committees, you had full access to everything including equal time to depose.
Why would you lie about something so well known?
Stop with the propaganda. You are a disgrace to our district.
What is appalling is your continued refusal to investigate possible emolument violations and now @POTUS updates Russia before congressional leaders. How much more evidence do you need before you will stand up and defend our Constitution and our democracy?
We’ve already established the answer to the last question, don’t you think?
Stop spewing nonsense. Uphold your oath. Country before party. Do your job
Not. Gonna. Happen.
You will be remembered for your lies and misdirection. The Republican Party has been decimated not by Trump, but by people like you. Do your Congressional job! Stop defending the sociopath.
The whistleblower’s complaint has been supported by first-hand accounts despite the WH instructing people to not appear and testify. Why aren’t you appalled by the lawlessness of this administration? Why aren’t you appalled by the miscreants surrounding Trump?
You are out of your mind
Do you actually believe this nonsense you just made up or are you hoping your voters can’t tell the difference? So hard to tell with you Trump sycophants.
You’re a disgrace and history will not be kind to you.
Seriously? You’re really going to try to gaslight your constituents with BS? Have you no shame? You KNOW that impeachment rules were set by the Republicans. Pelosi is following YOUR rules. You are appalling! And a liar.
Look, stop it with the knowingly false narrative. You know as well as the next person that members of the Rep and Dem attended the hearings. Just stop it already. Have you no inclination to honesty? Sheesh
Keep spinning. I can’t wait for the GOP and trump lovers to go down with the ship. Enjoy the ride to hell Vicky.
Only the constituents that voted for you believe this shit.
Why is every Republican tweeting the exact same thing? You guys are such hivemind lemmings.
You are appalling. Many of the gop were in those meetings and asking questions. These are the rules established by the gop. Deal with it and quit misleading your constituents. Better yet, stand up against the criminal or step the hell down.

Is there anything more peak 2019 politics than @HawleyMO going on anti-Nike and anti-Big Tech rants and then posting a picture of his kid on @Twitter wearing @Nike shoes? 11:38 AM – 5 Jul 2019
Some of the responses:
Not until next week, when he goes all in on Steak-n-Shake for some offense with a mouth full of skinny fries and a (vanilla) milkshake mustache.
@HawleyMO is a fool, and a tool of dark money.
@HawleyMO is still here? He’s been on the job for 6 months. Isn’t it time for him to start looking for a new job?
Something, something, ladder.
Yep, and the tough-talking Arizona governor was photographed wearing Nikes yesterday. Their favorite shoe is Nike Hypocrisy.
It is because is fake outrage. Just something to give the base something to be mad about. Without outrage the base doesn’t pay attention.
This afternoon’s pearl clutching from Josh Hawley(r):
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Nike should apologize to Americans for denigrating the flag. They should apologize to Missourians who lost loved ones defending the flag. And they should restart production of the Betsy Ross shoe at their facility in St Charles, MO 12:42 PM – 2 Jul 2019
What a self righteous schmuck.
Some of the responses:
Start with your potus first.
Literally zero Missourians died to defend the Betsy Ross 13-star flag. True historical fact.
Wish you would care more about the kids that are being treated cruelly at the border than what flag Nike decides to put on its products.
One question, how many Missourians died defending the Betsy Ross flag?
You should tell us who the dark money donors were who bought you that Senate seat
Zero Missourians died defending a flag with thirteen stars, as it was the 24th state.
Which Missourians died defending that flag?
Which one of those 13 stars represents Missouri?
Lotta Missourians died defending that flag did they?
Should your focus really be on shoes? Your concerned about shoe design, but cool with kids in cages? Asking for a friend… and myself…and a bunch of other people. Ashamed to have you representing the state I love.
I remember in April when GOP m members of Congress reached out to big pharma companies and told them not to cooperate with a Democratic investigation on price gouging.
Odd, the things they publicly ‘clutch their pearls’ about.
Are you going to go after the huge displays of American Flag adorned clothing at Target, Kohls, Walmart etc that violate US Flag Code too? Or just the Nikes?
Fun fact: Missourians never defended a 13 star flag.
Which Missourians died defending the 13-star flag?
“I pledge allegiance to these sneakers…”
it’s a shoe, bro
Poor Miserians. Died for a flag that wasn’t even theirs.
You think Donald Trump (r) offered to let Josh play with one of the tanks on Thursday?
“…Now I know he went to Yale, I think, or Harvard, one of those, one of those fancy ones…” – Claire McCaskill (D), on Josh Hawley (r) – August 17, 2017

My statement on Yale Law School’s policy of discrimination against religious students and faith-based groups
[….] 5:27 PM – 5 Apr 2019
Wait, what? Yale University Law School? In New Haven, Connecticut? One of those fancy ones? Not located in Missouri?
Three of the comments explain a little more:
The Yale policy applies to those who work for organizations that do not support the full range of civil rights, like the right to marry the human adult you want to. So, try facts before you tweet. @YaleLawSch
I’m sure #horseface Hawley knows the facts, but probably just didn’t have enough space on The Twitter to fully explain that he thinks it’s perfectly fine to discriminate based on his religious beliefs.
And yet we allow faith based organizations to discriminate at will because “it’s their right”
Ah, it’s really about the right wingnut republican cult of victimization and just so much pearl clutching.
