Democrats planning Mueller 'war room,' social media blitz

Source: Politico

House Democrats are preparing an all-out messaging blitz over the next three days to refocus Americans' attention on special counsel Robert Mueller's report, hoping to channel the intense focus on Mueller's congressional testimony Wednesday into a public outcry against President Donald Trump, as well as the prospect of future foreign interference in U.S. elections.

Democratic leadership aides say their entire caucus will be involved in the effort, blasting out messages on social media beginning Tuesday morning under the hashtag #RetweetTheReport, which they'll use to elevate excerpts from Mueller's findings that present vivid details of the Trump 2016 campaign's contacts with Russia, as well as Trump's efforts to derail Mueller's investigation.

The excerpts will include a dozen quotes from Mueller's first volume — on Russian election interference and foreign contacts with the Trump campaign —as well as an additional 11 from the second volume, which detailed 10 episodes of potential obstruction of justice by Trump.

The social media effort will be bolstered by a Democratic "war room" that plans to be active during Mueller's testimony, clipping excerpts from his testimony to blast out widely and combating Republicans who will likely have their own messaging operation.

2. I'm all for it,

 

Too bad Fox viewers will again be left clueless seeing as Fox isn't even covering the Mueller hearings live.

8. Guess Fox News changed their mind

Yesterday on Deadline:WH, Nicolle Wallace was surprised to learn that Fox News would not be covering the hearings.

10. It appears the "Fox isn't covering Mueller came from Joyce Alene" as a supposed joke.

5. Are they buying ads on Fox?

Do they ever? I don't watch actual TV and, of course, avoid Fox, but this just occurred to me as the only way to reach the supposed 40% of the country who are hardwired to it.

9. At least one of the much-maligned freshmen will be

a big help here. Perhaps that's why, reportedly, she was meeting with Pelosi yesterday.

12. MoCs will be back home and holding

townhall meetings. I was told my Rep is having at least one in Aug, but time/place/date TBD. Go out and express your views, lobby your MoC.

14. They already already know our feelings, pelosi holding back. I'm hoping it'd a

 

Strategy but fear it's a lack of guts.

Barrs impeachment inquiry should have started months ago as a warm up. Pelosi is giving GOP a massive victory in 2020 if she keeps the reins on her committees. I and all others I know will simply not participate in fund raising if she continues this path.
