If there are no impeachment proceedings, I can see the GE debate question now:

Moderator: Do you believe the Mueller report presented evidence that President Trump obstructed justice or in any other way abused his power?

Democrat: No.

Trump: No Collusion!! Witch hunt!!! Fake News!111!

or

Democrat: Yes. The report clearly showed that he attempted to impede the investigation by---

Moderator: So do you think the Democrats should have impeached? Or do the Democrats believe the President is above the law?



There aren't any good answers if the Democrats don't initiate impeachment hearings. "We didn't think it was strategically wise" won't fly.

4. We MUST impeach or we will lose Dem voters for

appearing weak.

AND it is in The Constitution and the Founding Fathers wrote it as a system of checks and balances. It is our governments duty to follow the constitution and the law which is impeachment hearings at the very least!

9. I already feel deflated every time I see fellow Democrats poo-pooing impeachment

I will never not vote for a Democratic candidate at any level, but I sure as hell understand how some might just give up.

Democrats have power in the House -- they need to use it.

5. If they don't

IMPEACH they are wasting the power that we the people gave them. I'd do it just to make a point that the asshole in chief IS NOT above the law for eff sakes.

7. Exactly! Because the reverse is true, too:

Inaction makes the point that he is above the law.
