There are constitutional means.

The problem isn't a lawbreaking president.
The problem is that he's being shielded by a major political party.

If the Congressional Republicans performed their constitutional duty and acted as a check on presidential power. . .

. . . he would have been out in 2017.

Instead they shield him⤵️and do all they can to obstruct the investigations while shoving through their agenda.

The House is moving toward impeachment, but without removal, impeachment won't stop the lawbreaking.

The Constitution also provides a remedy for members of Congress not doing their duty: Vote them out.
It's not the constitution's fault.

The future takes the shape it does because of what we do now.

I stand corrected 👇

A thread reduced to 21 words👇 (I'd say 'removed')

In 2017, at the first sign of the Russian attack, the GOP (who then controlled both Houses) should have launched a meaningful investigation.

Instead, Nunes and pals did all they could to protect Trump.
