One anticipates that Trump flushes “10 to 15 times” down the Hershey highway (HersheyPark Drive) in tonight’s 7pm ET Hershey PA speech. Pence will also be there so expect something slightly longer and with above average lies/falsehoods. It’s a 10,500 seat venue.
Second Article: Obstruction of Congress. A president who declares himself above accountability, above the American people, and above Congress sees himself as above the law. But no one, including the president is above the law.

These Articles perfectly charge the gravest possible Crimes against the Constitution and stress that the conduct charged was Ã¢ÂÂconsistent withÃ¢ÂÂ the presidentÃ¢ÂÂs Ã¢ÂÂprevious invitations of foreign interferenceÃ¢ÂÂ and Ã¢ÂÂprevious effortsÃ¢ÂÂ to obstruct justice. https://t.co/EGdC4xhUMy

The Senate will look at public opinion.
The framers expected this when they decided not to give the power of removal to the Supreme Court, and instead gave it to Congress.

2/ The defense, such as it is, is to oscillate between “you don't have a smoking gun!” and “it was awesome to shoot him!” … Basically a separate article of impeachment for gaslighting the whole fucking country should be added to the list.

The Lavrov-Trump meet will be closed to press. Expect the Kremlin to again control the narrative and releasing pics. Their foreign ministry announced this meet via their media overnight. This meeting is outrageous on so many levels pic.twitter.com/5CITr3NZRn

Who made the decision to give Lavrov a second Oval office meeting? There is no substantive reason for this meeting. Why didn't they invite Zelensky to fly from Paris? Very strange. I hope the horrible symbolism here was just a mistake & not on purpose.

Tonight's event is a political campaign rally and the trip is supposed to be paid for, at least in part, by the Trump campaign. Announcements from a podium (stale or not) are presumably official WH events during which the president is supposed to be performing his public duties. https://t.co/HTD1HtbyAi
