Trump Has Disqualified Himself From Running in 2020

Westlake Legal Group 0Gahq0hI0zu7oTjngEPAFGSQJ_Jf2uEksK8O4r2yEEg Trump Has Disqualified Himself From Running in 2020 r/politics

Mike Murphy, a Republican election consultant, recently remarked that “one Republican senator told me if it was a secret vote, 30 Republican senators would vote to impeach Trump.” Everyone understands that Mr. Trump is wildly popular with conservative voters, and that Senate Republicans would rather not invite primary challengers by alienating them. But when the legitimacy and preservation of our democracy are at stake, striving to keep a Senate seat safe through craven betrayal of the American people could come at a catastrophic price to the country.

Mr. Trump has supplied American voters with overwhelming reason to doubt that any election he participates in can be fair. That’s why he can’t be allowed to run for any public office, much less the presidency, ever again.

If the House goes through with impeachment but the Senate acquits, Mr. Trump’s lawlessness will have been lavishly rewarded. He will take it as a signal that absolutely anything goes — especially given the Senate’s failure to act in any meaningful way on election security. Should he win, a sizable majority of the public will see it as an electoral coup and deny the validity of his claim to power. It’s easy to imagine enormous mass protests that bring Washington to a halt, dangerous indeterminacy in the continuity of government, and worse.

Senate Republicans who would vote in secret to remove Mr. Trump need to finally come to the defense of their country and do it in public. The odds of Republicans’ holding the Senate in a clean race are strong. But senators who choose to ignore the duties of their office in order to protect Mr. Trump will communicate with ringing clarity that they don’t care about having a fair election; that they don’t care whether the American people have really granted them the authority to govern; and that they think their own voters don’t care about any of this, either.

Senate Republicans owe us the courage of their private convictions. If they can’t find it, they should at least be wary of assuming that cultlike devotion to the president will allow them to weather the coming storm, or that, in the end, they will be rewarded for a faithless calculation to regard their constituents with contempt.

I’m Terri Ann Lowenthal, an expert on 2020 Census policy issues and operations here to discuss everything you wanted to know about the 2020 census (but didn’t know who to ask), so AMA … because you, too, must be counted!

Westlake Legal Group ur5Nl1GoS64tQOyLPjcQ2LE1LAbh41P07lCVs9ttWQE I'm Terri Ann Lowenthal, an expert on 2020 Census policy issues and operations here to discuss everything you wanted to know about the 2020 census (but didn't know who to ask), so AMA ... because you, too, must be counted! r/politics

Terri Ann Lowenthal, a nationally recognized expert on census policy and operational issues and a former staff director of the U.S. House of Representatives census oversight subcommittee, answers your questions about the decennial enumeration of the population. Why should you care? Um, because the U.S. Constitution requires a census of all U.S. residents every ten years? Because the census is our nation’s largest peacetime activity and the cornerstone of our representative democracy (including the Electoral College)? Because it is the only government activity that includes every single person living in the U.S. on “Census Day” (April 1, 2020)? Because your response to the census is required by law? Because without data collected in or based on the census, you cannot hold public officials and corporations accountable for the decisions they make? Other than that, nothing to see here!

P.S. to the Reddit community: I’ll be on-line to answer questions today until 2:00pm EDT. After that, I’ll try to check the conversation again over the next few days, to see if there are additional questions I can answer.

Pompeo says State Dept. officials won’t show up for scheduled impeachment depositions this week

Westlake Legal Group jyVqfIPG4_Ae6mXEWd4LR1KDBYOaMMnNopNKUPMUw-8 Pompeo says State Dept. officials won’t show up for scheduled impeachment depositions this week r/politics

Well, that’s certainly an escalation.

Hopefully, the Sergeant at Arms has been hitting the gym. That mace is heavy.

Edit: Dems didn’t issue subpoenas to these five State Department officials. Upon more reporting, it looks as though they simply “scheduled” these depositions with State’s consent. State has now withdrawn this consent.

(For clarification, the House did in fact subpoena Pompeo himself and documents from Pompeo. But not these five officials.)

Edit: The House has responded.

https://intelligence.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=712

“Secretary Pompeo was reportedly on the call when the President pressed Ukraine to smear his political opponent. If true, Secretary Pompeo is now a fact witness in the House impeachment inquiry. He should immediately cease intimidating Department witnesses in order to protect himself and the President.

“Any effort to intimidate witnesses or prevent them from talking with Congress—including State Department employees—is illegal and will constitute evidence of obstruction of the impeachment inquiry. In response, Congress may infer from this obstruction that any withheld documents and testimony would reveal information that corroborates the whistleblower complaint.

“The Committees are operating pursuant to our long-established authorities as well as the impeachment inquiry. We’re committed to protecting witnesses from harassment and intimidation, and we expect their full compliance and that of the Department of State.”
