That feels significant.

Heavyweights weighing in on the air
Heavyweights who’ve already weighed in with necessary context (whose content is accessible all day)
As well as what I keep wondering why there is not more focus on the fact that the attempting use of covert propaganda against U.S. citizens, which is what Donald tried to extort the new President of Ukraine Zelenskyy into putting forward, is a FELONY
Keep an eye out for even mainstream media reporters who have appeared to skip history class and civics (feel free to stop them on the street and ask them if they have bothered to read the Constitution)
And keep in mind (I’m sure there will be a longer & detailed thread on this at some point) that those once-trusted sources have to be vetted like anything else, and that we have both the power & responsibility to question the Fourth Estate and hold them as accountable to upholding our democracy as we hold ourselves (more so, if they look a little authoritarian when they first Tweet at us in the morning)
For example – there’s a reason this Tweet is getting ratioed (feel free to demand a retraction even though they will argue with you that they quoted her accurately, thus dodging the point that what they’re actually doing is quoting misinformation)
As well as a reminder of how credible this family is in general (which is to say, not at all)
^^ (I’m not sure what I appreciate more here, the juxtaposed quotes or the descriptive text)
We also have context to keep in mind what this is really about (and why, even if we are not riveted to it all day, it is as responsible citizens that we want to peek in at some point – since Benjamin Franklin warned us some time ago that we had to be an educated electorate if we wanted to keep the republic)

Let’s be clear what Republicans will be doing when they rant and wave off the most obvious case for impeachment in American history.
They want to legalize Republican presidents stealing elections they don’t think they can win.
Feel free to mock Gym Jordan in comments and Tweet at Speaker Pelosi and other House Chairs to find out when he is going to be removed – from the chamber, if not from Congress
