Rep. Jason Smith @RepJasonSmith
For our community, access to care isn’t just a talking point – it’s a matter of life or death. Last week, I continued my fight for rural healthcare and met with Director Carroll of the @ONDCP and @GovParsonMO for a roundtable in Cape Girardeau.
9:49 AM · Feb 24, 2020
Hypocrisy, they think it’s a good look.
The replies, as always, are priceless:
You have devoted your entire career, both in the Missouri General Assembly and in the Congress, to blocking healthcare for working people in your District. Besides the health effects, your actions have resulted in closed hospitals in your District.
you’ve been active in preventing access.
You want to protect folks with pre-existing conditions — but at a higher price for them. Currently the ACA which you oppose makes it illegal to consider pre-existing conditions in pricing. So you want to repeal the ACA to change that? Why? Keep your filthy hands off the ACA.
How about helping Missouri expand Medicaid to save rural hospitals. It was Gingrich’s and Heritage’s plan. Time to stop being stupid because of Obama. He’s done. You can try thinking with you own brain now. 36 states accept our federal expanded Medicaid dollars. And Gov. Pence.
You voted to kill my insurance.
Yes Jason, it can be life or death, but your voting record tells a different story than this talking point.
Oh please. You voted to take away healthcare from Missourians
Um… @RepJasonSmith voted against ACA – the exact opposite of which you are telling people today. What’s up with that?
Medicaid expansion would automatically cover 200,000 more Missouri residents and save us $100 million! The feds cover 90% of the cost. [….]
At this point you’re just punking us.
Getting scared, bro? Remember when you celebrated voting to repeal the ACA with no replacement? Yeah, I do. Y’all brought beer in to celebrate. You’ve been fighting to TAKE AWAY healthcare, you lying PoS.
Too late, it’s here.
Donald Trump’s campaign operation has never been a bastion of moral rectitude.
Barr takes control of legal matters of interest to Trump, including Stone sentencing
Attorney General William Barr’s intervention in Roger Stone’s case wasn’t the first time senior political appointees reached into a case involving an ex-Trump aide, officials say.
Feb. 11, 2020, 6:55 PM CST
By Carol E. Lee, Ken Dilanian and Peter Alexander
…the case against Trump associate Roger Stone. On Tuesday, all four line prosecutors withdrew from the case — and one quit the Justice Department altogether — after Barr and his top aides intervened to reverse a stiff sentencing recommendation of up to nine years in prison that the line prosecutors had filed with the court Monday…
They don’t even have to bother to try and hide it anymore.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Barr for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even been brought. Evidence now clearly shows that the Mueller Scam was improperly brought & tainted. Even Bob Mueller lied to Congress!
5:53 AM · Feb 12, 2020
See you in the labor camps.
* We cannot assure anyone that no pedestrians were trampled in the hurry to issue this Tweet or in the efforts of Josh Hawley (r) to get in front of a microphone.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Dershowitz eviscerates the Dems’ case tonight. They have not charged an impeachable offense or alleged impeachable conduct. Period. Let’s vote
8:32 PM · Jan 27, 2020
As usual, there was much hilarity in the responses:
You know this because of your extensive Courtroom experience…….Oh wait.
That one was from a retired Missouri Circuit Court Judge.
…didn’t you want to hear from Hunter Biden and Schiff earlier today?
I’m just trying to keep track—are they important or nah?
He’s kind of shakey at this sycophant thing, so they cut him a little slack.
Here’s what’s changed. The NYT dropped another leak from Bolton’s book tonight. They have to get things wrapped up before anymore facts come out. Drip. Drip. Drip.
No, as a Show Me State resident, I want witnesses. Start with Bolton. Let’s get testimony
And now you know why josh had to quickly get a different job than being a lawyer
Ouch. That one left a mark.
Then let’s bring in Bolton and get the word straight from the horses mouth.
How can you vote when you haven’t heard from any witnesses? Why are you pushing this through? Is it because you are afraid of what else may surface publicly? Because you know it will.
How can abuse of power not be impeachable? It is by definition not proper conduct! And obstruction of Congress is denial of the Congress’s enumerated power to impeach and try impeachments. If that’s not impeachable, nothing is.
We’re Americans. We’re not children and we’re not afraid of the truth. Bring it.
Let loose the witnesses!
Yes, but they’re republican senators…
Dersh is a criminal defense lawyer. 1 of his students who became a constitutional lawyer said he was glad he didn’t have Dersh for constitutional law b/c his arguments are laughable. Explain how Trump was legally able to withhold aid already approved without notifying Congress.
Maybe the self described “constitutional lawyer” needs to ask for his law school tuition back.
The impeachable offense is listed in the articles. Once this bs grandstanding of parading republicans to defend their religious values is over… and the real trial begins… then you’ll have the proof for the impeachment.
But I understand dumb voters don’t research.
Dershowitz treated the Constitution today like a square of toilet paper. He has no conscience and will do anything to give Republicans an out. To Dumb down the Constitution like trump has dumbed down America. This is a direct assault on the Law and the US Constitution.
Yep, a vendetta against Republican attempts to have a trial without witnesses or documents – especially when new facts are coming out every day.
Republicans are delusional if they think acquitting trump w/o witnesses won’t come back & nite them in the a$$.
Obstruction is an impeachable offense, Senator. I know you’re focused on bootlicking, but have a bit of objective decency. Once again, feel free to come to KC and face your constituents!
Is it just me or does-
Trump’s attorneys sounds like they are doing an oral book report on a book they never read. Hours of nothing.
As my elected representative I urge you to stop being a sycophant and use that fancy Yale Law degree to think seriously about the danger this president poses to us all and our constitutional republic. You must vote to hear witnesses and to remove him from office.
Pro tip: cheating to win an election is always impeachable
Yeah Hunter Biden withheld military aide. He also told his personal attorney and the AG to go find dirt on his political opponents.
Are you really a constitutional lawyer? Did you get your degree in a gumball machine?
So I’m other words you failed logic and critical thinking in 8th grade.
“eviscerates”? Now that’s certainly creative. Seems more like he said no other ‘constitutional’ attorney agrees with me but that’s my opinion. Period. Let’s call witnesses.
Dershowitz is a prima facia case of “opinions money can buy”.
“The subjects of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.“ I’ll take Alexander Hamilton‘s version over Dershowitz’s.
Dersh said himself that his opinion on this does not match the consensus of nearly all constitutional scholars. He is the outlier here.
Wait… aren’t you the one that said human trafficking is the result of the American sexual revolution in the 1960s? And ripping kids from their parents was a matter of upholding law and order?
Well, now that you ask, yes.
Why are you attempting to GASLIGHT Americans?
Wow Hawley. Now I know just where you stand. Against Justice, against the will of the People, hearing the witnesses & viewing documentation to complete the trial with full information. Missouri voting is easier everyday. Show your colors MO politicians. We’re watching.
And every constitutional scholar says Dershowitz is totally wrong. If you can find even one reputable person to agree with him, you might have a case, but the only person who used to agree with him wrote an op-ed today about why offenses were impeachable.
Whoa there, Joshy. Captain Underpants spoke in contradictions and has even less credibility than Ken Starr. But I can see you’re in a hurry to acquit before Bolton has a chance to testify. He’s a first hand witness. Isn’t that what you say is missing?
Feeling the rush to vote before Parnas drops another 2 -3 videos?
He didn’t eviscerate anything.
It was so unwatchable and nonsensical I had to turn it off.
Did you have to use your fidget spinner to make it through that mess?
Dershowitz has a pretty obscure take on the matter. Seems like you maybe should call other Constitutional scholars since most say his arguments is utter BS. But you already know that, don’t you. So tired of GOP dishonesty.
I am so disappointed in you. I look forward to supporting whoever runs against you. I just wish I could vote against you sooner. You have shown time and again that you have no character. Such a disgrace.
The president’s defense is still just lies and misdirection, just like his life.
And on and on…
Impeachment Trial: “No” witnesses, “No” documents, “No” impartiality (January 22, 2020)

Mike Pence (r) took to social media to tweet justifications for yesterday’s assassination of the Iranian general. One of his justifications:
Mike Pence @Mike_Pence
Assisted in the clandestine travel to Afghanistan of 10 of the 12 terrorists who carried out the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States.
2:05 PM · Jan 3, 2020
Show your homework, you gaslighting maroon.
Some of the responses:
There were 19 hijackers in the 9/11 attacks.
(15 were from Saudi Arabia, 2 from the UAE, 1 each from Egypt and Lebanon.)
1) there were 19 terrorists on 9/11, not 12
2) why the fuck would an agent of a theocratic Shiite state assist agents of a theocratic Sunni group? They literally hate each others’ guts
3) Fuck you
There has been no verifiable proof that Iran (nor Iraq, since we are apparently retreading this bullshit) assisted in al Qaeda’s terrorist attacks.
There is, however, *plenty* of evidence that elements of the Saudi royal family assisted.
The best “proof” warmongering assholes like you have come up with is somebody associated with al Qaeda being in the same country as an agent of Iraq and/or Iran at around the same time. No evidence they met, let alone conspired to attack the US.
WTF are you talking about
Could we get more clarity on your last point, are you suggesting that a man deeply committed to the Shia state of Iran would conspire with Sunni extremists by enabling their travel to Afghanistan, into a country that held the Taliban, a group he vehemently opposed?
It makes absolutely no sense and is simply a throw in to try and justify this to a know nothing base.
hey mike old bean, the rest of us out here in realityland aren’t as gullible as the credulous dimwits who worship Dear Orange Leader. but cool story bro, loving how you wedged 9/11 in there
That airport didn’t attack itself during the Revolutionary War. Wake up sheeple.
Bowling Green didn’t massacre itself
You mean those Saudis who attacked us on 9/11 you homophobic imbecile? The same Saudis who dismembered Khashoggi and who @realDonaldTrump owes 100’s of millions in loans and who should be #impeached for covering it up? Glad you mentioned that, moron.
This is completely illogical and there has never been any evidence of this. The highjackers were Sunnis from Saudi, and Soleimani is Shia from Iran. Also, there were 19 hijackers. How are you the Vice President? Oh, right, the Jesus stuff
Do Saudi Arabia next where almost ALL of the 9/11 attackers came from…
Baked the yellow cake
Shot the sheriff
Let the dogs out
Threw Momma from the train
Okay we’re really doing this, huh? Gonna go the full on WMD, 2003, yellow cake aluminum tubes route.
And he was probably hiding weapons of mass destruction.
In the basement of a pizza shop.
1) Whoa, déjà vu. Is it 2002 again already?
2) There were 19 hijackers, Mike.
3) It sounds like the word “assisted” is doing a LOT of heavy lifting in this tweet, Mike.
If @VP @Mike_Pence had bothered to read the 9/11 Commission’s report before publicly implying that Iran was a knowing, willing, and material participant in the attacks… he might have come across this particularly problematic paragraph in section 7.3.
I believe you mean SAUDI ARABIA.
Hey Mike, there were 19 hijackers on 9/11 (not 12), & they belonged to Al-Qaeda, which is a sworn enemy of Iran (driven by deep ideological hatred of Shias & the Iranian government). Can you plz not insult the intelligence of the American public to justify your deranged policies?
I love it when you guys play the classics. Do yellow cake uranium next
ok false witness bearer
There were 19 hijackers and there is no way an Iranian Shia is helping Sunni Muslims carry out anything.
“Iran was also responsible for the creation of New Coke. They canceled Firefly after one season. Game of Thrones ending? That was Iran’s script.”
Oh for the love of god. Read a history book dude.
Anyone who falls for this transparent bullshit again wants to.
Soleimani also let the ball go through his legs in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series.
Proof?? Receipts? Or something…
This makes zero sense and is completely preposterous to anyone familiar with the politics and history of the parties involved. Of course you’re counting on most Americans’ ignorance and conditioning to accept the word of the government to manufacture consent – truth is irrelevant
There were 19, you spectacular dumbass
The likelihood of Iran assisting OBL plot 9/11 is about the same as the likelihood of Billy Graham helping Larry Flynt direct a porno. If you want to find people who did assist the 9/11 hijackers, look at some of Jared Kushner’s business partners.
Straight up inaccuracy, AKA overt lie.
But whatever, there isn’t a commandment about that or anything.
This is a lie, liar.
Check your math on this one. And your facts on all the others.
Also fixed the 1919 World Series
Declassify his participation in the “Rise of Skywalker” script.
Yeah, he did 911?
Well, I heard he bombed Pearl Harbor, struck down Obi Wan, and killed my mom.
Dude, try to keep your sickening propaganda at least borderline credible.
And on and on…
Definitely not in the loop, eh? Not the best timing.
Rep. Jason Smith @RepJasonSmith
Speaker Pelosi knows her #impeachmentsham was a fraud. Her work was so sloppy and negatively received that Senate Democrats are asking her to not send the #ArticlesOfImpeachment over to the Senate because they lack any evidence and it is not something they want to vote on.
2:02 PM – 2 Jan 2020
There was much hilarity in the responses:
These people all testified about what they knew. We watched them on tv. It wasn’t a sham. You are lying, like all of the republicans. Party over country.
Have your boys testify if you aren’t scared of truth coming out. Can’t have it both ways.
so tired of @Gop #Fairytales. Too much evidence to claim innocence. #CallTheWitnesses #RemoveandIndictTrump
I see @SpeakerPelosi has taken up residence in your head.
you don’t keep up with the news, do you?
Ummmmm, did you just wake up?
The truth is crumbling your lies and trump’s defense on an hourly basis.
Please stop your perverse need to please the criminal in the WH and do your dam job.
Dick tweet. But one must consider the source. The Party of Liars (Republicans) can’t be trusted and are therefore irrelevant
Sham? You worship a corrupt criminal.
You’re a waste of space.
You are out of touch with reality!
Actually, they appear to be considering additional impeachment action. And now Trump is doing exactly what he accused his predecessor of doing. Starting a war as a distraction and to boost his support going into a election.
Sycophant works, too.
Who are you again??
You think your constituents are stupid? There’s more and more evidence to support impeachment everyday. Read the unredacted emails Jason. We see you. #CorruptGOP
E-mails. The irony.
Everything you said is a complete and total lie. Stop treating your constituents like they’re idiots.
Maybe you should pull your head out of Donald’s ass you wimp
“Thoughtless Sycophant” would be a much more family friendly turn of phrase.
Yesterday, from the White House:
The White House @WhiteHouse
If you like your lightbulbs, you can keep your lightbulbs! The Obama Admin tried to limit Americans to buying more-expensive LED bulbs for their homes—but thanks to President @realDonaldTrump, go ahead and decorate your house with whatever lights you want.
8:20 PM · Dec 21, 2019
The War on Holiday Decorations?
We are a nation of smartasses. There was much hilarity in the responses:
dim bulb – 𝘯𝘰𝘶𝘯. a stupid person.
Do lead paint next!!
Oh… and let’s bring back asbestos! Do that next!
Cancer-causing light bulbs have the best light.
Oh no! The War on Lightbulbs.
This White House runs on a dimmer switch.
How many lightbulbs does it take to remove Donald Trump from office?
This is the stupidity you get when you put science-deniers in charge.
The cost of a bulb is not just the purchase price (which is all the White House can handle, apparently).
It’s the cost of the electricity, and frequency of replacement.
Std incandescents take more of both.
Nah but screw that! Give us those incandescents, then let’s go pour battery acid in the lakes and take a sht on your aunt’s lawn because trump is giving us that freedom, raaaaah!
I bought my led light bulbs for my house about 5 years ago… still running strong. How is spending a few extra bucks on the initial purchase a bad thing when they pull less energy(save on bill) and last year’s longer?
Because with the LED bulbs you have to flip the light switch 10-15 times before it came on.
I am just thankful that I can say Merry Impeachmas again.
How many Trumps does it take to change a lightbulb? All of them!!!
None. They’ll sit around in the dark and blame it on Obama.
Make Kerosene Lamps Great Again!
I always use them for gaslighting
We see what you did there.
Apparently someone in the incandescent light bulb business donated to the Inauguration Fund, and now they’re looking for their payoff.
Yes, but those fancy bulbs make everyone look orange. Once we go back to incandescent bulbs we will all look normal color. I promise.
1) That was a Bush era program
2) Incandescents are now more expensive than LEDs
3) LEDs use less power (cheaper)
4) LEDs last longer (less replacing=cheaper)
5) LEDs are better for the environment
You do know you have people who can look this stuff up, right?
The White House- the lights are on, but nobody’s home.
Just so I’m clear, you’re claiming that this administration has saved both Christmas…and light bulbs? Way to fight the good fight, buddy.
That’s efficiency for you! Oh, wait…
LED lightbulbs are now the same price as incandescent and last much much longer. Stop spreading lies.
The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 – that would be the GW Bush administration.
Maybe somebody can find a pop-up book to explain it to you.
It was actually a GWB rule to phase out the bulbs. I know you’re not bound to reality, but…
Businesses looking to save money want high efficiency lighting. Utilities want high efficiency lighting because it reduces need to build new expensive power plants.
Consumers want to save money.
You’re peddling dumbassery.
LED lights have come down in price, last must longer, run cooler and use way less energy. Anyone with any sense would be switching over from incandescent bulbs. When will you be bringing back horse and buggies?
Make electricity bills higher again!! Yay!!
The shortsightedness in this is epic. You did this to spite Obama and pander to tycoons who like you will destroy the earth forever for an extra penny. Selfish impotence, betrayal of America, and cowardice. #IMPOTUS
This from the dimmest bulb ever to sit in the Oval office.
LED lights are 80% more efficient.
95% % of the energy in LEDS is converted into light ,only 5 percent is wasted as heat. Less energy use decreases greenhouse gas emissions. Anyone with sense would decorate using LEDS-
I want rotary dial phones to come back. Make America Backwards Again #MABA!
LEDs last WAY longer, and use less power. Therefore LEDs are cheaper.
Can’t wait till we get some brain cells in the White House again.
PLUS I decorated houses for Christmas professionally for 2 years. LEDs are FAR more durable than incandescents.
Y’all are insane.
Yeah… but good luck trying to get your Easy-Bake Oven cake to cook.
Okay, so that’s one point in favor of incandescent bulbs.
Obama wasn’t impeached, your president was. Decorate that.
Obama didnt get Impeached a week before Christmas, tho. I doubt there will be any decorations at Mar-A-Lago, except a few Tiki Torches and Citronella bug repellent candles.
Good people. We see what you did there.
Trump supporters typically don’t choose the brightest bulb anyway.
I’m not letting your Stalinst Republican government force me to use lightbulbs, comrade! You’ll pry my oil lamps and candles from my cold, dead hands! FREEDOM!!!
A war on lightbulbs?!? At Christmas?!? I though the war was on Christmas. Will someone send me the war agenda so I can know what war we are currently fighting?
Soon enough we’ll have cars running on steam
Yabba dabba doo!
Can we bring back the pony express next?
‘Thanks to @realDonaldTrump we can have shittier things that fail faster, cost more to power and are inefficient as shit!’
wow.. that’s what you’ve got.. Welcome to .. #Idiocracy
Once Twitter turns on him, bringing back landlines and dial up Internet is next on Trump’s agenda.
It’s a good thing I saved my 1200 baud modem.
Thanks man, cause I was stressing over whether or not buying whatever light bulbs I choose was a constitutional right or not. Now, how about addressing climate change? Gun reform? Racism? Police brutality? Abuse of power? Homelessness, hunger, poverty, mental health….
And while you’re at it, bring back those toys made with lead. Freedom!
The future looks… dim.
Our government is being run by a bunch of evil idiots. Unbelievably sad.
Everything about this tweet is ignorant. Far less energy use with LEDs. Adoption brings costs down. Supply chain can’t turn on a tweet and manufacture old technology. Syntax of a truculent fourth grader. #IMPOTUS
There you go.
Rep. Vicky Hartzler (r): we’re running out of light bulb puns (July 13, 2011)
Lite bulbz, yeah! (November 24, 2012)
An analogy, from somewhere on the Internets: If your neighbor calls you and tells you it snowed overnight, that’s hearsay. If you look out the window and see the snow, that’s circumstantial. If you were up all night and watched it snow, that’s first hand.
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
SONDLAND: “President Trump never told me directly that the aid was conditioned on the meeting.”
This is another day of House leadership trying to create a case around hearsay and personal perspectives on second- and third-hand information.
9:57 AM · Nov 20, 2019
There was much hilarity in the responses:
Vicky, talk to Guiliani.
Can always count on Vicky to parrot her male handlers’ talking points, right on cue ..
Are you high? As a former schoolteacher, I hope you know the definition of “everyone.” If not, you should brush up because it’s gonna be on a lot of newspapers this evening.
Did you listen yesterday, when Lt. Col. Vindman offered firsthand information? Or elsewhere this morning when Sondland explained that *everyone* understood they were acting under Trump’s orders that aid would be conditional. Shame on you.
Vicky is going down with the corrupt ship.
Sondland said that he worked at the “express direction of the president of the United States.”
You clearly aren’t watching the same testimony I am…or you have your head in the sand & will go down with a sinking ship. You may be my elected Rep, but you DO NOT represent me!
“Was there a quid pro quo?”
Quit lying to the American people Vicki.
Quit misleading your constituents.
Since you don’t meet your constituents face to face, I hope you’re at least reading the responses here.
Are we watching the same hearing?
Trump admitted it in the call transcript.
You should stick to being the congresswomen representing the defense industry. You’re not a very good spin toady.
Still carrying water but it’s gotta be getting harder every day
But yet he was saying that was what he clearly wanted.
You should ask Trump, Pence, Pompeo, or Barr to testify their first hand perspectives
This is for sure, Donald Trump does not love Gordon Sondland’s ass right now.
We see what you did there.
He said trump DIRECTED him
Hanging by a thread defense, Vicky. Where there’s tons of smoke, there’s fire. Trump and Mulvaney even admitted it themselves. Get your head out of the sand
Listening the impeachment inquiry, & each Repub was like a dog with a bone, gnawing away in a frenzy. When time’s up, they sit back with a satisfied smile. It’s only when you take a closer look that you realize none had an actual bone. They were gnawing away on hot air.
LMAO!!!! It’s not enough that the @GOP wants to be as corrupt as hell, now they are determined to make everyone believe they are too dumb to understand what is going on as well!
After he got caught lol
You are really bad at this. Try sitting this out. Don’t you have govt checks to cash, or because of the large amounts, wire transfer, Hartzler? Here is the deal, testimony is straight forward, there was to be money paid for something.
Are you watching the damn hearing? Sondland followed the direct orders of TRUMP. Pompeo, VP Pense, so on and so on knew it!
“THERE WAS QUID PRO QUO” Gordon Sondland
Anyone giving you likes on these stupid, lying tweets will at some point kick their own asses for doing it.
Reaching now, aren’t you?
Your attempt to gaslight your constituents is shameful. Your decision to support trump over upholding your oath to the constitution disqualifies you to serve in Congress.
Not sure you get how this all works, maybe you’re a bit over your skis on this one?
You will be held accountable for continuing to lie to your constituents. The president committed crimes and has been trying to cover it all up and everyone knows it, including you.
Sondland specifically said there was a quid pro quo. He also specifically stated that he was under direct order from the president. Did you miss that part or are you just that stupid?
How embarrassing for you.
Your lie and you’re sticking to it?
How about you STOP being the PARTISAN HACK you are and protect the people that voted for you! #BriberyTrump #TrumpBribery #ExtortionistTrump
Then how about you corrupt sycophants pave the way for those with first hand knowledge to testify. No? Why not??????? Sit down.
HE SAID THERE WAS A QUID PRO QUO! You idiot!
We all know snow and how it got there when we see it.
Blaine Luetkemeyer @RepBlaine
Today I sent a letter to Speaker Pelosi and Chairman Schiff demanding the release of all transcripts from their secret impeachment depositions. Despite promising increased transparency, this investigation continues to happen behind closed doors and completely on Democrats’ terms.
3:36 PM · Nov 7, 2019
There was much hilarity in the responses:
Where have you been?
Many of the transcripts have been released already!!!!
Reading is hard…
Republicans on these committees have access to it all. Whether or not they choose to exercise that right is their call. Maybe you should pen a letter to those who chose to not attend the depositions.
Hmm, did no one tell you about all the transcripts they released this week? You know, the ones your GOP colleagues participated in? I know, a bunch of them blew the depositions off so they could have talking points but we both know BS when we see it, right?
[….]I’ve only seen this identical tweet by like 12 other Republicans. Working yet?
Absolutely, let’s get all the information about Trump’s wrongdoing out in public.
We see what you did there.
They weren’t secret, the GOP members of the intelligence committee were allow into the depositions, which were held in accordance to the congressional rules republicans concocted and passed. Next week everything will be televised and you’ll complain about something else.
So you mean just like every investigation under GOP control except those turned up absolutely nothing of consequence while this one just keeps rolling out result after result after result? Also, transcripts ARE being released, but GOP folks say they won’t read ’em… Which is it?
That’s gaslighting for you.
How secret are they, Blaine? Meadows was tweeting earlier about the deposition he was present for.
Instead of tweeting about the fancy letters you’ve been writing, just ask Mark.
The WH must have threatened to primary you. Perhaps you should share the number of Republican House members involved in these “secret” investigations. Plus, this tweet seems a bit outdated. Transcripts being made public & open hearings beginning soon.
Wow you wrote a letter? Amazing stuff! Should we tune in tomorrow to see you mail the letter!?! I can’t wait the suspense is killing me!
Actually, the next step is a harshly worded memo.
Does it take effort to be this craven and disingenuous and is this a skill you’ve honed over time? Or does it come naturally?
Every time y’all demand stuff, they release it, and then y’all say the incriminating evidence doesn’t matter. Go gaslight your wife and leave us alone.
They’ve released transcripts everyday this week and public hearings are starting next week. So what exactly was the point of your letter?
Ready for the public hearings? I am!
They’re being released but you’re too busy grandstanding to notice.
You are a dollar short and a day late. Maybe you don’t have a television or access to the internet, so I’ll tell you, they been releasing them! You guys are tragic with your ineptness and inability to find a way to defend the indefensible! Find a new lie to cover the old ones.
They are being released. You know this, yet tweet nonsense anyway. You are a sorry excuse for an elected official.
Who in their right mind voted for you?
Seems like you don’t stay up to date with developments.
BTW: Are you bothering to read the transcripts as they are released?
Go. Read the transcripts [pdf].
Yesterday morning from Vicky Hartzler (r):
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
“By denying due process to this president, Democrats have delegitimized the House and its constitutional powers, and have done irreparable damage to the country.”
@JimPressOffice and @RepSteveChabot are absolutely right.
9:10 AM · Nov 4, 2019
Some of the responses:
The Impeachment Inquiry is an Investigation. There is no ‘Due Process” in investigations. GOP are doing irreparable damage to the country with this malign nonsense. All to protect a mobster. #RIPGOP #ImpeachAndRemove
It blows my mind you are covering for the criminal in the oval office. Why? What does he have on you and the @GOP? You are selling out the American people.
You know that once your cult has the reality of your lies explained to them your party is finished right?
Best for you to come clean, cut the Resident loose and try to save yourselves. That is what it will come down to & the sooner you realize this the better
Catch up, please. Rules were passed last week in the house that provide fairness, due process and transparency for the American public. You and every Republican in the house voted against it. Maybe you naively thought you could make impeachment go away. #RuleOfLaw #Constitution
I don’t see the problem with the Democrats using the rules the Republicans put in place when they held the house in ’15.
Explain your hypocrisy
AW let’s go for it-being trump in to testify -in person since suddenly written testimony isn’t ok. It will take about 5 minutes to perjure himself and we know republicans are happy to impeach over any lie —whether it has anything at all to do with governing.
There’s no “due process” during an investigation phase. This is a ridiculous argument.
@JimPressOffice and @RepSteveChabot are absolutely wrong.
There is not a single good argument presented in this piece. Just saying “denying due process” does not somehow mount to anything credible by merely uttering the words over and over again.
Whistleblower protections are the LAW. If you you think it violates the constitution then let the courts decide. It is reprehensible that this person is being targeted for speaking their conscience. The Republican party has sunk to an unthinkable low.
This is an impeachment inquiry, not a court of law, not the trial in the Senate.
They are investigating a legitimate complaint trump verified and confessed to.
So far, that’s the only thing trump has providing the investigation. Why is that?
Trump has done irreparable harm to this country and have fun going down with him.
Are you capable of having your own thoughts or are you required to parrot GOP talking points? Seems very I don’t know, Stepford Wive-ish.
If you want to keep sipping the Kool-aid, by all means, do so. But do it somewhere where we don’t have to listen to it, fair?
This is gaslighting and beneath the dignity of your office.
They’re not. You know they’re not. We know they’re not.
Another republican lie.
Democrats are communists so when they have a majority they run OUR, not their, country like the communists they are! Pelosi can pack her bags as her tenoir as speaker ends in 2020 forever.
Who writes this crap? Trump abused the power of his office, and he’s going to be impeached for it.
Funny, I thought the irreparable harm to the presidency came from the president when he attempted to bribe a foreign country to get dirt on a political rival. Silly me! It’s reallytge investigation of the bribe that’s the problem!
You simply can’t be this dumb and manage to get elected to Congress. Please tell me this is an act and you are not this stupid.
I suspect you don’t understand about 70% of these words.
The first testimony is released. So what will the GOP whine about next? Because it is already damning to Trump and GOP cult followers.
You people are delusional. Did you not read the same transcript I did? You don’t get to rearrange the conversation to fit your idea of an illegal act. Why shouldn’t we ask a country, who’s asking us for aid, to investigate meddling in our election. Are you all taking crazy pills
