1. "Recess" is not a vacation. Many members of congress will be raising funds, holding town halls,

marching in parades and doing behind-the-scenes policy research during this time. Different members use this time at different levels of efficiency, of course.

Don't tell me that they have to go back home to "connect" with their constituents, they can do that on the weekends.

Oof, that's pretty tough the further you go west. If that were the model, we'd have members of Congress leaving on Thursday morning to "get back home" and coming back on Monday night. Flying is such a huge part of global warming, this is really not a great idea.

Pelosi says they need to have a stronger case for impeachment...tell me just how you're going to do that with nobody in Washington to do it.
Go to your senators' and reps' local offices, or call them, and tell them you want impeachment. That's part of making a stronger case for it -- hearing from constituents.
