I am Chris Armitage, Progressive Democrat, Air Force Vet, former cop, and comic running for Congress. AMA!

Westlake Legal Group sdDbLosptBPi3Cjh5m-NfBJiRkhjqT_Z80YLNFkloPE I am Chris Armitage, Progressive Democrat, Air Force Vet, former cop, and comic running for Congress. AMA! r/politics

My main policies are Medicare for All / Green New Deal / and the Armitage Income Justice Act which addresses Income Inequality. I also believe that we need to get corporate money out of politics, which is a uniting sentiment regardless of political affiliation.

The 5th district is in Eastern Washington State and is 25% larger than New Jersey. In 2018 the 5th was recognized as a flippable district on the Red to Blue list. I am running to replace 7 term Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R) who has a record of voting in line with Trump 95% of the time.

While Active Duty Air Force I earned a Master’s of Science in Homeland Security and an Undergrad in Criminal Justice, both were partially earned during my two Middle East deployments. I am also heavily involved as a climate activist and a member of the LGBT Community.

This campaign is not accepting any corporate contributions. Although many folks feel that this district can’t be won without corporate or lobbyist money, we believe that the power of individual donors is the key to showing people that their voices actually matter!

Chuck Schumer says he is ‘increasingly worried’ Trump will shut down the government to distract from impeachment probe

Westlake Legal Group 2YVWpQvKsQn-Oyu8nknuGBC3oaAs8T5b3sjcclDHJn8 Chuck Schumer says he is ‘increasingly worried’ Trump will shut down the government to distract from impeachment probe r/politics

I appreciate that Schumer is already associating formal impeachment in the House with another potential government shut down.

Trump views allowing the government to shut down by not approving funding as a power move, a way to stick it House and Senate Dems. Republicans point to government shut downs to illustrate the brokenness of the government as a whole.

Moscow Mitch McConnell has already said he wants a speedy impeachment trial in the Senate, with the whole thing over before the end of the year. If Republicans choose to side with Trump on a shut down they will:

  1. Be actively keeping thousands of Americans out of work before the holiday season.

  2. Appear corrupt as fuck by supporting Trump’s decision to allow the government shut down, at a time when he is being investigated by a co-equal branch of government.

I don’t really see any positives for Republicans here.

By putting his diversion from impeachment via government shut down theory out there now, well before the average person is worried about being out of work/a lack of government services they depend on, Schumer is ensuring it will be a major talking point leading up to that Nov. 21 deadline. It’s all about public opinion, Republicans, Democrats and Trump know that. Trump supporters are just as self-interested as he is. Certainly many will feel the repercussions of a government shut down. All who do won’t be happy that Trump is hindering their ability to put gifts under the Christmas tree to protect himself.

House Democrats release impeachment resolution

Westlake Legal Group xf1Gp1ITGOHmPzXA4umZt8Nm-LWWqBWNZc4wCoiSbNY House Democrats release impeachment resolution r/politics

Two Big DealTM developments on how public hearings will be conducted:

(1) Dem leaders issued a statement indicating public hearings will be held by the Intelligence Committee. So D questioning will be led by their strongest questioner by far (Schiff), while Rs will be led by a bananapants insane conspiracy theorist who sues fake cows and is personally implicated in the matter under inquiry.

(2) Hearings will begin with up to 90 minutes of questioning from professional legal counsel, not politicians. To get an idea of how significant this is, look no further than Barry Berke’s questioning of Corey Lewandowski last month. The hearing had been a clown show up to that point, and in just a short interview, Berke methodically extracted admissions from Lewandowski of multiple public lies, that he pled the fifth to Mueller to avoid testifying, that he was offered a bribe by the White House to talk to Sessions about unrecusing, and tried to meet privately with Sessions so there would be no record.

These hearings are going to be devastating.

Chicago Mayor Poses With Barack Obama On Same Day She Refused To Meet Donald Trump: ‘Your Leadership Inspired Millions’

Westlake Legal Group m24CapfHfpSUuDvJOXbI5qLOUwVULUPG2k0r1X8zf1Q Chicago Mayor Poses With Barack Obama On Same Day She Refused To Meet Donald Trump: 'Your Leadership Inspired Millions' r/politics

Wonder why she’d do that…

During Trump’s speech to the IACP, he came down hard on Chicago, calling the Windy City “embarrassing to us as a nation” when it came to crime and also said Afghanistan was a “safe place by comparison.”

Oh yeah, that. Oh, and this too attacking the Police Commissioner:

“There’s one person that’s not here today,” Trump told the IACP yesterday. “Where is he? I want to talk to him. In fact, more than anyone else this person should be here, because maybe he could learn something. And the Chicago superintendent of police, Eddie Johnson.”

The president went on to accuse Johnson of “not doing his job” and called Chicago “the worst sanctuary city in America,” referring to local authority reluctance to work with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel.

Megathread: House to vote on resolution establishing next steps in impeachment inquiry

The House will vote this week on a resolution to formalize the next steps of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

The resolution — which ‘establishes the procedure for hearings,’ according to a statement by Speaker Nancy Pelosi — will mark the first floor vote on impeachment since Democrats formally launched their inquiry a month ago.

DOJ Says It’ll Be ‘Irreparably Harmed’ if Congress Gets Its Hands on Mueller’s Secret Grand Jury Materials

This is how he has always ran things. The same way trump ran his businesses. One set of books for when he needed to look wealthy to creditors. And another set of books when he needed to look broke for debtors and the tax man. The facts don’t matter they only care to shift their argument to whatever suits them in that moment.

They did the same shit under bush.

They argued that Cheney had executive privilage as part of the executive branch on some issue. But for any rules that applies to the executive branch they argued he was not subject to them because he was actually part of congress since he cast the tie breaking vote in the Senate. Bassically switching which branch he is a part of depending on the issue to claim immunity.

It’s like the enemy combatant designation too. They didn’t want to list them as POWs so they weren’t subject to international POW law. But couldn’t detain them under US criminal law because then they would be subject to US laws. Also the reason they hold terrorist in gitmo. To avoid laws governing their treatment.
