The papers are signed!!! #BidenHarris2020
A reporter asked Kamala Harris about Trump’s VP eligibility claim and true to form, she gives an answer that refuses to diminish the meaning of this moment. pic.twitter.com/Ti56QH9BMp

Hey… remember Netroots Nation?
I’m in this fight with @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris all the way. But it’s not enough to win the White House—we need to elect Democrats up and down the ballot to put people in positions where they can enact the big, structural changes we need. #NN20 https://t.co/SnExmkRA16

only thing I’d dispute here is Trump actually suing everyone instead of just threatening to sue everyone and quietly folding https://t.co/85c7STL7dy

The GOP Death Cult’s attempt to hijack the Post Office deserves — and will get — a post, or posts, of its own. But just to remind you that it’s in no sense a lost cause:
NEWS: The inspector general for the USPS has agreed to examine Louis DeJoy’s changes to delivery, partly with an eye toward looking at impact on mail ballot delivery, @ewarren‘s offoce confirms. First reported by @marshallcohen. And not a moment too soon. https://t.co/V9ifZIfewQ

NEW from @USPS: “We are suspending the removal of collection boxes at this time. All postings on collection boxes will be removed, as we will no longer be pulling any boxes.”

If Jon Tester, Maxine Waters, Joe Manchin, & Elizabeth Warren are all raising equal hell about an issue, that should be a signal that Democrats are pretty damn unified about the problem & you need to go yell at republicans.

To this point on the politics of blatantly gumming up mail delivery:
Trump job approval (per new Marist, Morning Consult polls) — 39%
USPS approval rating (June Harris poll) — 91% https://t.co/hXVqbLnLui

He’s trying to make people panic and give up, it’s the con, it’s meant for both sides, to make us think he’s unstoppable. Nope, we are going to stop him.

1) They overestimated their own slickness; and
2) They vastly underestimated the backlash
An effort this clumsy and stupid is a Kushner Deluxe.
Won’t be shocked to hear his name come up in all of this.

I don’t say this lightly: when we escape this Trump hell, America needs a Presidential Crimes Commission. It should be made up of independent prosecutors who look at those who enabled a corrupt president. Example 1: Sabotaging the mail to win an election. #SaveThePostOffice
