Trump should be impeached for the shutdown alone.

The Mueller probe will continue of course, but could go on for years.

This shutdown, the longest in world history is a solid reason and cannot be denied.

Perhaps the new congress can advance things up a little.

being that it may be hard to say that Trump caused the shutdown. How? What specific action did he take? Congress didn't send him a bill to sign, so he can't even be accused of vetoing it.

It would be more accurate to place the blame on the GOP controlled Senate, but that doesn't get us anywhere with grounds to impeach Trump over the shutdown.

They sent him a clean CR bill and then Coulter and Limbaugh were mean to him.

No bill made it to his desk.

Google "Trump veto". Trump has never vetoed a bill (yet).
