@RepAdamSchiff says at #CAPideas there is a "variety of opinions" in the Democratic caucus about impeaching @realDonaldTrump. "There isn't unanimity about that. There is unanimity about this: the administration is engaged in a wholesale cover-up."
 
@RepAdamSchiff says that Pelosi is weighing what the impact will be on the rest of the Democratic agenda — health care, drug prices, etc — of beginning impeachment proceedings.
 
@RepAdamSchiff calls A.G. Bill Barr as the president's "personal attorney." @AriMelber: "You don't think he deserves the title anymore?" "No...The most dangerous thing Barr has done is say a prez under investigation can make the investigation go away if he thinks it's unfair."
 
@RepAdamSchiff on whether we're in a constitutional crisis: "I think we're at the precipice of one. We would be in a full-blown one" if a court told them to take action "and the administration simply refused."

@RepKatiePorter, a single mother, says the class dynamics of members of Congress are one of the most surprising things about serving: "The reality is a lot of people are able to run for this office and endure serving in this office because they have means."
 
Porter remembers meeting with the House of Reps benefits office, and being told her health insurance wouldn't kick in for a month after she was sworn in. She asked what options she had. The benefits office said to just buy COBRA for a month. (She worked out a solution, but wow.)
 
Rep. Sharice Davids (@RepDavids) says she used her savings, dipped into her retirement, and went without health insurance during her campaign. Skipping a paycheck — like wealthier reps said they'd do during the gov't shutdown — isn't an option for middle-class reps, she says.
 
@RepKatiePorter laments the pace of action in Congress: "I sometimes feel like Congress' slogan is solving the problems of yesterday, tomorrow, maybe."
 
@RepDavids says she still gets stopped going to the House floor. "I'm used to being the only person like me in the room" — only woman, native woman, LGBTQ woman. "There is something about the level of blindness to that that I see not just on the House floor but in the hall."
 
I could listen to @RepKatiePorter, a single mom and finance expert, and @RepDavids, an attorney and LGBTQ Native woman from Kansas, talk about being freshman congresswomen and life in D.C. Chock full of great observations in this convo at #CAPideas.
 
@RepDavids: "At this point, it's going to take a very concerted effort for a very long time" to ensure that every woman in this country has access to the reproductive care they need.

I know a lot's happened but I wanted to remind you that this week @realDonaldTrump completely legitimized one of Europe's budding authoritarians who has systematically crushed a free press and independent judiciary https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/viktor-orban-donald-trump-hungary-835480/
“Orbán wants to project how respected he is, and these were exactly the words the president said,” Hungarian opposition leader Peter Márki-Zay tells @RollingStone. “Now, he can claim he’s one of the significant leaders of the world.” https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/viktor-orban-donald-trump-hungary-835480/
