Just got word from @EliseStefanik that she would not like #ByeByeElise to trend.
Do not send a tweet with the hashtag #ByeByeElise
It would only boost the highly qualified and honorable @TedraCobb
So please DO NOT use the hashtag #ByeByeElise
#byebyeElise don’t let the door hit you on your way out.
I’ve been setting the alarm earlier and earlier to get two kids to high school on time and I’ve settled on 5 for the moment and I wake up at 4:30 every day and this is fine
Infographics are my love language
Replying to @TheRickWilson: This story deserves to be shared very widely.
We commend you and your team for the INCREDIBLE job you are doing at the hearings.
*Could you do us a favor, though?*
Next time they bring up Obama, ask how many times President Obama asked a country to investigate his political rivals.

@JoyceWhiteVance Please remind your followers of Cohen’s testimony:
"Mr. Trump did not directly tell me to lie to Congress. That's not how he operates."
"He speaks in a code. And I understand the code because I've been around him for a decade."
Democrats claim impeachment won’t keep them from legislating. But Speaker Pelosi has refused to allow a vote on USMCA for months. It appears there's no governing priority – no matter how bipartisan, no matter how beneficial to Americans – that won't take a backseat to impeachment
There are hundreds of bills on your desk that you refuse to sign, including one that will protect our elections - literally the core tenet on which our republic is based.
#MoscowMitch, you have described yourself as the gravedigger of legislation.
Pot meet kettle.
Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. We remember the lives of our trans siblings we have lost. Those we have lost to violence, to guns, to bigotry, to hate. Those we have lost due to unequal access to health…
No matter your belief system, people being murdered is not okay. People being murdered for living out who they are is not okay.
Replying to @HillaryClinton: Every day Stephen Miller remains in the White House is an emergency.

COUNSEL: "What did [Sondland] tell you that he told [Yermak]?"
MORRISON: "The Ukrainians would have to have the prosecutor general make a statement with respect to the investigations as a condition of having the aid lifted."
There it is: Trump's extortion of Ukraine, confirmed.

Congressman @Jim_Jordan - I AM TIRED OF YOU LYING IN A HOUSE COMMITTEE ROOM IN FRONT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. My client hired ME - no one else in leading up to filing the disclosure with the ICIG. I have made that clear TIME AND TIME AGAIN - and you ignore the FACTS!
And one more thing, @Jim_Jordan - NO ONE even within my firm - except for ME - knew the identity of my client until weeks, weeks later. Only I was involved - and there was NO "coordination" with anyone in Congress on anything involving the complaint.
Replying to @MtnMD: As we begin this day of hearings, let's not forget the thousands and thousands of children now being held in concentration camps…
I got Harris. Who is my first choice.
There's one thing I feel the need to make clear re: debate over the #NJEDA. Many proponents of the subsidies have supported the programs due to a belief - some legitimate, some not - that companies can provide jobs to residents & that jobs reduce poverty.
It's not that simple.
It's been a rough week.
I wanted to share one of Obama's final speeches as president. It gives me hope on days when I feel like there's not much hope left. I hope it'll do the same for you
"Hope in the face of difficulty, hope in the face of uncertainty, the audacity of hope!"
