Ya gonna have to VOTE his ass out of office….
Democrats need to stop the impeachment bull shit to get media attention and turn to making sure they win their elections next November….
The simple reason on this has been there ALL along….
They do NOT have the votes to convict in the Republican majority Senate…
The other reason?
An impeachment ament push would surely hurt New Democratic House members in Trump states….
Anybody who though Robert Mueller was gonna help get rid of Donald Trump now?
Is in a fantasy land…
Donald Trump has done a whole of batch of illegal things….
Being President and having a Attorney General with absolute allegiance to him gives him ‘trump’ cards over the Democrats ….
As she has for months, Pelosi argued to her colleagues that the “slow, methodical approach” employed by House Democrats was the right way to move forward, despite the fact that more than 90 of her members have called for an impeachment inquiry to begin now.

To date, that hasn’t happened.
House Democrats have fumbled in their efforts to hold Trump and his administration accountable, despite promises to do so. Presidential candidates are more focused on one another and playing to their internal constituencies than on organizing the brief against the president to take into the general-election campaign. That remains a major challenge as the contest moves forward.
Next week’s Democratic debate in Detroit will offer the candidates a fresh opportunity to begin to frame the election — the case for their party and the case against Trump — as well as to state or restate their views about impeaching the president.
