    I’m watching it now. It’s fabulous.

    Makes very clear that obstruction of justice was a sustained and group effort.

    They could reboot “Hogan’s Heroes” and just cast Fat Bastard’s family and fellow mobsters.

    They should release it read in a whispering voice, like an ASM R video on YouTube.

    Great! Perhaps next time PBS can air this live to get the maximum publicity.

    It summarizes the ten instances of probable obstruction of justice. Should be plenty for impeachment, and there’s more in emoluments, setting up concentration camps. general corruption of his cabinet, and much more.

    It looks like a third of the Democratic House Caucus have come out for impeachment.

    This is a great idea. My only question is why did it take so damn long for this type of event to be organized?

    lawworksaction.org has a replay up on their website now. You can view it at your leisure. Well worth it, both for the content and for John Lithgow’s performance of Trump’s obstructive comments and tweets!

    It was remarkable. Makes the obstruction so clear and real.

    As anticipated, Trump trolls are saying it’s all made up.

    @Cheryl Rofer:

    I’m curious who the holdouts are. I’m still convinced that Pelosi is not actually anti-impeachment, but she doesn’t have enough of a majority to override the holdouts in the caucus. It would be horrendous if the vote to impeach failed because a group of Democrats voted with the Republicans.

    OT – One for Steve in the IPC, from Charlie:

    Business Insider—via The Wall Street Journal—reports that, all over the country, cities and towns are rethinking the notion of having schools named after the notorious traitor, Robert E. Lee. All day, the electric Twitter machine was alive with suggestions of other Lees—Stan, Harper, Bruce, Brenda—whose names could be substituted with minimal fuss, bother, and cost to the school districts involved. The shebeen would be quite negligent if it didn’t contribute to this noble enterprise. Therefore, we at the shebeen offer, at no cost, except a sweatshirt from the school in question once the change is made…

    […]

    I like it! :-)

    Cheers,
    Scott.

    @Mnemosyne: Yes, it would be horrendous. And Pelosi knows how to count votes. But I’d like to see more public statements that this president is unfit for the office. It’s the leadership’s responsibility to whip votes. I’d love to hear some of those conversations.

    I haven’t seen a list of those who have come out in favor of impeachment. If I do, I’ll share.

    @Cheryl Rofer

    Important to continue differentiating between supporting impeachment and supporting holding impeachment hearings. They are not interchangeable; the latter (obviously) provides potential impact on the former.

    I’m still convinced that Pelosi is not actually anti-impeachment, but she doesn’t have enough of a majority to override the holdouts in the caucus.

    I agree with this and believe we ought to be trying to find out who the holdouts are.

    Thanks, Cheryl. That was excellent. Lithgow was wonderful.

    @NotMax: On a related note…. This what Christofascists’ rollback of protections against anti-trans discrimination looks like. “Religious freedom” for healthcare providers meant a friend was afraid to go to the ER of a Catholic hospital because she’d have to disclose that she’s trans and she was concerned about how she’d be treated (or not treated at all).

    https://twitter.com/RachelVSee/status/1142824587580850176?s=19

    For context, 23% of transgender people avoided going to a doctor when sick or injured out of fear of discrimination in the past year. 33% of transgender people who saw a health care provider in the past year were harassed, denied care, or even assaulted, per: https://protecttranshealth.org/
