Tweeting this for people who haven't seen it.

Nancy Pelosi's fact sheet.
 https://www.speaker.gov/sites/speaker.house.gov/files/Trump%20Shakedown%20and%20Coverup.pdf 

Take it as a preview of what to expect in the Articles of Impeachment.

"Cover up" is a better term than "obstruction of justice."
Among other things, it avoids the criminal code.

Avoiding the criminal code keeps the focus where it should be, on abuse of power, and takes away many of the Trump-FOX-GOP's bogus "defenses."



For what I mean, see this thread:

Yup.

If I understand Penny's reaction, it's this: Pelosi knows how to do this. Calm, measured, and fact based while going for the jugular.

Pelosi's daughter said her mother can "cut your head off and you won't even know you're bleeding."
