As of late Wednesday evening (9/25), two of the three Wisconsin democratic congress members (Rep. Pocan and Rep. Moore) have done the right thing and stepped up to support the Trump impeachment inquiry. The one who hasn’t is — no surprise — corporate dem Rep. Ron “Wall Street” Kind.
Reports are the congress critter has — as usual — been meekly gazing at the rusty political weathervane atop his garage waiting for direction.
If you want to let Rep. Wall Street know it is time to stand up and do his damn job and support a broad impeachment inquiry of Trump, contact him at:

Have Nancy Pelosi & The Timid Corporate Dems Already SABOTAGED Trump’s Impeachment
The Young Turks (9/25/19)
President Trump told his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, to hold back almost $400 million in military aid for Ukraine at least a week before a phone call in which Trump is said to have pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate the son of former vice president Joe Biden, according to three senior administration officials.
Officials at the Office of Management and Budget relayed Trump’s order to the State Department and the Pentagon during an interagency meeting in mid-July, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. They explained that the president had “concerns” and wanted to analyze whether the money needed to be spent.
Administration officials were instructed to tell lawmakers that the delays were part of an “interagency process” but to give them no additional information — a pattern that continued for nearly two months, until the White House released the funds on the night of Sept. 11.”

There’s No Reason To Drag This Out – We Have All The Proof We Need
[Editor’s Note: Pelosi had better cancel the upcoming congressional vacation. — Mark L. Taylor]
There’s no reason to drag this out any longer — we now have all the proof we need. So let’s keep the Impeachment SIMPLE. Here’s the timeline the House should follow, beginning today:
1. ONE WEEK for the committees to compile the case based on Trump’s existing confessions, the whistleblower’s report & the special prosecutor’s already well-documented evidence.
2. FOUR DAYS for a single joint committee to hold the hearings (let the committee’s attorneys ask the questions and steer the case).
3. ONE HOUR for the Committee to call for a vote of the committee’s members as to whether the Impeachment charges should be sent to the full House.
4. FOUR DAYS of debate on House floor.
5. ONE HOUR for a roll call vote of the House.
By October 17th.
Then move on to removing Trump on 11/3/20.
(Note: The House is scheduled to go on a two-week vacation (!) this Friday. Speaker Pelosi must suspend this vacation due to the national emergency facing the country.)
