1. Eliot Engel, New York, Chair.

How strong minded/willed is he?

19. I don't know much about him.


What has been clear is that the Dems. are very united, and I am sure Pelosi is working hard to address the issues.

Maybe we will luck out and Putin will give him a tea set.

27. An extra $80 million might come in handy for Putin...

to pay for FB trolls and other types of interference in this year's election to benefit his lapdog.

That's the amount that the Iranians are currently offering as a bounty for the head of the Orange Horror.

33. Oh those with little imagination. It's not just the SC.


It gets it on the record. It gets it in the news.

More importantly, it increases awareness in the military that it is a war crime and it is unlawful to obey a war crime order.

35. A subpoena for a list of targets

is a far cry from identifying a war crime. Especially when such a list will never be revealed and probably doesn't even exist.

39. If military are informed that cultural sites are war crimes, THEY see the list. THEY will have to de


They will have to decide. But they must know the parameters and keeping it in the news helps educate them.

tRump's list is imaginary. Pentagon has said there are fewer than 52 on the real list.

We don't have to know the list, though it would help. And military targets on the list would be secret. But the military must know or become informed of their legal liabilities.

9. Constitution?

Trump don't need no stinking constitution!

Trump doesn't recognize Congress or The Constitution. He actually believes he's the be-all and end-all of the United States Government. And who's to tell him he isn't? Republicans in Congress? They've pretty much told him they'll do absolutely nothing to stand in his way, no matter what he does. If no one is going to stop the orange turd, then he is everything he says he is, right?

Our country is in serious trouble.

This Media Post will serve as a reminder that war powers reside in the Congress under the United States Constitution. And that you should read the War Powers Act. And that you’re not a dictator.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner. Such legal notice is not required, but is given nevertheless!

30. NY-CD16 is not like AOC's district. Different demographics.

I live in NY-CD16 and I can tell you that among people I talk to, they see no compelling reason to replace our current Congressman.

The so-called "Justice Democrat" candidate does not have a snowball's chance in hell in this primary.

Eliot Engel will swat him like a fly, just as he did in his last primary in 2018.
