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. 

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
