10/7 – Mitch McConnell Plans To Rig Trump’s Impeachment Trial – POLITICUS Mitch McConnell controls the rules for any Trump impeachment trial, and he has let it be known that he plans to kill Trump impeachment in the Senate. The Senate Majority Leader is running ads on Facebook promising to kill Trump impeachment. As the Courier-Journal reported, “A trial would then be held in the Senate, where it would take at least two-thirds (or 67 votes) of the chamber to convict Trump and remove him from office. The chief justice of the Supreme Court presides over the trial. But as majority leader, McConnell would have some power in setting up ground rules for a trial, including timing.” McConnell has already said constitutionally, there must be a trial in the Senate if the House impeaches Trump, but he controls the timing and the rules. In other words, Mitch McConnell is planning to rig Trump’s impeachment trial. This is why the American people need more from Mitt Romney and Susan Collins than concern or saying that Trump did something bad. It won’t matter how concerned they are if these Republican Senators vote for Mitch McConnell’s rigging of Trump’s trial. Everyone saw McConnell’s move coming before impeachment started. Sen. McConnell is going to do everything in his power to do the bare constitutional minimum to try Trump on any articles of impeachment. McConnell is going to rig the rules. Trump is going to claim that he was exonerated, and will run on the Senate not convicting him in 2020. Impeachment is necessary due to Trump trying to get foreign countries to interfere for him in the 2020 election, but unless these Republicans do more than express concern, Trump’s impeachment trial will be a sham.

10/6- When Democrats Turn Out Email – The number of Federal Election Commission (FEC) commissioners dropped to 3 at the end of August, bringing the nation’s election regulatory body below the stipulated quorum of 4. They now cannot hold meetings, issue fines, or clarify rules that keep our elections as fair as possible — opening the door for campaigns to ignore finance regulations without any repercussions. Foreign governments will have an easier time interfering in the 2020 presidential elections and GOP dark money will flow freely. This is no accident — it’s part of a carefully orchestrated assault on democracy by national Republicans, specifically #MoscowMitch McConnell. He’s the one who has stood in the way of campaign finance reform, spearheaded the Citizens United case, and blocked any new appointments to the FEC. He is actively tearing down every protection that props up our democracy and even standing in the way of election protections that would stop Russia from meddling in 2020.

10/2 – When Democrats Turn Out Email – Here’s the lowdown on Washington’s most corrupt power couple, Elaine Chao and Mitch McConnell. Who: Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao (read: Mitch McConnell’s wife) Where: Washington and Kentucky — Mitch McConnell’s home state What: Under investigation for using her position to get her family members lucrative business opportunities and loans, allegedly totaling in the hundreds of millions of dollars. (She also appointed a special liaison to help with grant applications that benefit Kentucky, resulting in at least $78 million being spent in ahead of her husband’s impending re-election bid.) Why: To help her family hoard wealth and win her husband his Senate seat

9/22 – WHEN DEMOCRATS TURN OUT EMAIL – Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao (who just so happens to be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s wife) is under investigation by the House Oversight Committee. She is accused of using her position to get her family members lucrative business opportunities and loans, allegedly totalling in the hundreds of millions of dollars. This comes after she appointed a special liaison to help with grant applications that benefit Kentucky — which just so happens to be the state that McConnell represents in the Senate. Her unethical behavior resulted in at least $78 million being spent in Kentucky ahead of her husband’s impending re-election bid. She and Mitch are true partners in crime, steering this country down a corrupt path — he has been following Trump’s every wish and command since he was inaugurated, helping him try to overturn the ACA, forcing through his woefully underqualified and partisan judges, and ensuring Brett Kavanaugh’s lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. Mitch has used every opportunity to bash Democrats and further his partisan agenda while never holding Trump accountable — if the impeachment inquiry reaches the Senate, he’ll undoubtedly squash it, regardless of the findings. This is not the leadership our country needs. We need people who are going to listen to constituents, collaborate with stakeholders, and behave ethically to move this country forward.  Email- When Democrats Turn Out
