Pelosi’s impeachment inquiry is in response to a phone call President Trump made with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy where President Trump reportedly used his political position to pressure Ukraine into investigating Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
Ava DuVernay posted a picture of herself and the real-life victims that inspired her Netflix drama “When They See Us” at Sunday’s Emmy awards. In 1989 these five men (then teenagers) were wrongly accused and imprisoned for a crime they did not commit. The group was targeted by President Trump himself when the then entrepreneur took out a full-page ad in the Daily News against the boys with the headline: “Bring Back the Death Penalty, Bring Back Our Police.” DuVernay’s tweet simply states, “We are dressed and ready for the Impeachment Party. What are you wearing?”

Me too. America is aching for justice, for repudiation of Trump’s appalling contempt for our deepest values. https://t.co/bb6wTcra9d

While we’re at it, can we get rid of Pence as well? He’s a menace and no friend to women, the LGBT community, immigrants… the list goes on and on.
