I read an op ed that said Democrats should focus on legislation and not impeachment ...

and I wondered, now what legislation did this person think would get passed between now and 2020 that would even get a vote on the Senate floor? The House may as well adjourn if they think they can pass anything on healthcare, immigration, taxes, infrastructure, or voting rights.... you name it. The only thing the 2016 election was for was to hold Donald tRump accountable. If anyone thinks any different, they are only fooling themselves. The Blue Wave was to wash the stench from the White House and that's it.

bring up in the Senate.

Investigate everything and everybody every day until the truth is out there for the voters to decide, should an impeachment lead nowhere.

There are over 200 Democrats in the House. It does not take the undivided attention of all of them to investigate and impeach.
