Breaking News: On the eve of the House vote to impeach him, President Trump sent a rambling, 6-page letter to Nancy Pelosi denouncing the impeachment inquiry and invoking the Salem witch trials.https://t.co/goNI0rP9PR

Trump's anti-impeachment letter to Pelosi is littered with lies, misleading claims and claims lacking key context — on his dealings with Ukraine, on Biden, on impeachment, on his professed accomplishments, on the…Salem witch trials.

WH lawyers were cut out of the process of drafting Trump’s 6-page letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi about the House impeachment vote, @jonkarl reports. At POTUS direction, the letter was drafted by Leg Affairs Director Eric Ueland, Stephen Miller & counselor to CoS Michael Williams.

Opinion: It is hard to capture how bizarre and frightening Trump’s letter to Pelosi is https://t.co/bD2ZkCG29T

President Trump’s “letter” to Speaker Pelosi is a vivid picture of the mind of the man, in real time. It is a reminder that ultimately impeachment is a judgement on whether this man is fit for the presidency.

There won't be a single GOP vote to impeach. The Senate can't even muster four Republicans to create *the semblance* of a real trial. I took a lot of steam about voting out every single Republican, right down the line. My only regret is that I didn't say it more strongly.

Terrifying – Pilger is only saying what we in the health sector know, but with horrifying clarity: despite nice words about the NHS, all government actions are taking us ever closer to a damaging US style ‘profit before people’ model, #TheDirtyWarOnTheNHS

History will prove Corbyn correct, I expect. The NHS will go and homelessness will go through the roof.
For now he must endure the foul behaviour of the haves, who are being increasingly enabled to take from the have-nots.
He doesn't deserve this. https://t.co/zFD0OYmARr

.@MaryCreaghMP, understandably, furious about Corbyn: “He was chatting to a group of young people.. This is the man who has, effectively, enabled a hard Brexit from Johnson, that means those young people will have less right to live, work, study and travel across the EU.” pic.twitter.com/Ojrett2WLA
