There's no excuse, no alternative. Any effort to impeach Trump would likely begin in the committee.
Impeachment is risky. It will drown out progressives' messaging on health care and jobs. The Clinton administration used it to try to keep private Hillary Clinton's answers during the Monica Lewinsky investigation. Certainly it's futile if the goal is removing Trump from office before the end of his first term in January 2021.
That's really the bottom line about this whole fiasco.
Trump's overall approval rating in the poll is 39 percent. The special counsel investigation failed to find prima facie evidence of conspiracy between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to sway the 2016 election to Trump, but it did find an abundance of evidence of dishonesty, cruelty, misuse of office, malfeasance, abuse of presidential power and abuse of federal officials.
According to the narrative, Donald Trump Jr. and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner were destined for orange jumpsuits over an allegedly nefarious meeting with some Russians at Trump Tower. It's about coming to terms with the fact that the president of the United has violated the public's trust and betrayed his oath of office.
Trump blasted the probe once again Friday as he has done for more than a year, helping drive up Mueller's negatives but failing to undermine support for it.
That matters more than politics.
Only 37 percent of Americans polled said that they thought the president should be impeached. I dare anyone to say Trump has done anything less.
"I don't want people testifying to a party, because that is what they're doing if they do this", Trump said.
Liverpool boss Klopp hopeful on Firmino fitness despite 'small' muscle tear

Two people present during one such conversation provided me with detailed and consistent accounts of what the special counsel's two prosecutors had said to them.
Committee investigators are also focused on contacts Trump's campaign had with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential race.
It's possible a significant number of voters will say, "Sure, there's massive proof that Trump is a lying, narcissistic con man and aspiring tyrant, and if the Democrats would just let it go, I'd gladly support them". None of these conditions applied to President Trump.
Trump re-election campaign has topped $8M... His Justice Department has also adopted a "narrow" interpretation of the emoluments clause that allows Trump hotels to accept huge sums from foreign governments.
On the day of the public release of the report, Attorney General Barr revealed something extremely important.
Others leveled the same false charge at President Trump as well.
And a senior Democratic aide told The Daily Beast that the temperature within the conference has gone up since Trump said point-blank that the White House fights all congressional subpoenas...
"I think we have very good reason to believe that there is an investigation that has been conducted, which has produced evidence that tells us that this president and his administration engaged in obstruction of justice", senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris recently said during a CNN town hall. If these allegations and this evidence against Trump are insufficient to justify beginning formal impeachment proceedings, then what will ever justify it?
