Shaun King speaks out on Bernie Sanders

Why Bernie Sanders’s History of Racial Justice Activism Matters
BY SHAUN KING

https://jacobinmag.com/2018/06/bernie-sanders-civil-rights-movement-activism

...Bernie loved Dr King. And long before we used the phrase, Bernie had the notion that he needed to use his own white privilege to fight back against racism and bigotry and oppression and inequality. And that desire to hold this country to a higher standard began to well up in Bernie as a young student at the University of Chicago. He became the chairman of the university chapter of the Congress for Racial Equality (CORE) and merged the group with SNCC — the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Bernie literally helped lead the first known sit-in in at the University of Chicago, where thirty-three students camped outside of the President’s office — protesting segregating housing on campus.

Mueller: I think I heard you mention at least one. (Impeachment)



Q. The Constitution requires a process for accusing a president of wrongdoing. Is that impeachment?

Mueller: No comment.

Q. You did not want to "potentially preempt Constitution processes." What are those Constitutional processes?

Mueller: I think I heard you mention at least one.

Buck: "You believe that you could charge potus with obstruction of justice?" Mueller: "Yes"

Michael Bennet is getting mocked on the late night shows, so I'll just leave this here.



He has more passion, guts and real feelings about Americans in crisis than most of the other candidates.
Watch the whole thing. Again.

State Department: US trying to remove protesters from Venezuelan Embassy in DC

Source: CNN

US law enforcement on Monday started the process of trying to remove protesters from the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, a State Department official said.

The move to evict the protesters from the embassy came after a group of US anti-war activists began moving into the embassy last month.
Medea Benjamin, one of the founders of the anti-war group Code Pink, previously told CNN that diplomats from the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro had given them access to the embassy before the diplomats left as the standoff unfolded between Maduro and Venezuelan opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim President Juan Guaido.

Venezuela's Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs for North America Carlos Ron denounced the removal of protestors on Monday. "The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has not authorized the entry of police officers into the former Embassy building in Washington, DC. This intrusion is yet another violation of international law by US authorities and an aggression against Venezuela," Ron, a Maduro official, said on Twitter.

The State Department said in response to the embassy protests that it was the US position that Guaido's government had legal authority over the embassy, not Maduro's sitting government in Venezuela. The department on Monday encouraged "the remaining unauthorized individuals to vacate the building and to conduct any future protest peacefully and through legal means."

Pelosi: Barr committed a crime by lying to Congress

During a closed-door meeting on Thursday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Attorney General William Barr of committing a crime by lying to Congess.

“We saw [Barr] commit a crime when he answered your question,” Pelosi told Rep. Charlie Crist (D-Fla.) during a private meeting Thursday morning, according to two sources present for the gathering.

Pelosi’s comment was an apparent reference to Barr’s response to Crist last month during an appropriations hearing, in which the attorney general said he was not aware of any concerns that special counsel Robert Mueller’s team might have expressed about his four-page summary of Mueller’s findings.

Impeachment isn't an option, it's an obligation



Congress has the evidence of crimes. It is their duty to impeach. This isn't even debatable. To ignore these crimes, to play politics with the decision, would make a mockery of the constitution and of the American system of government.
