For as long as Trump has been in office there have been people who have thought he should be impeached. But with today’s release of Robert Mueller’s report, the population of Impeach Trump rose significantly. 

Some of these new residents are young and in Congress! 

Other new residents are old and used to be in Congress!

Some new residents are actually magazines. (Thanks, Citizens United!)

Some people aren’t yet ready to move to Impeach Trump but are not ruling it out.

Some people though are ruling it out.

A lot of people are not happy with it being ruled out.

And so other people have been whispering to reporters on background about how they really truly are open to moving to Impeach Trump! 

They need to look into the schools! What are the schools like? And the late night food options! Does Impeach Trump have good options? Is it cold in the winter? How cold? Hot in the summer? Like sweltering? Is it a dry heat? A wet heat? Is there precipitation? If so, how much? What is the housing market like? The arts scene? What about the dating scene? Congress must look into these things before committing to moving to this town. 

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
