Black Democrats push abortion rights over impeachment as 2020 heats up

The Guardian

A fierce debate over whether or not to try and impeach Donald Trump is roiling the Democratic party in Washington, pitting scores of lawmakers in favor of impeaching Trump against the party’s leadership, led by the House speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The hotly contested argument has divided the 2020 campaign trail too, as a slew of Democratic candidates, including Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, have joined the impeachment movement, while frontrunner Joe Biden has resisted the push.

But at a key pit stop on the 2020 trail – where a number of top candidates, including Biden and former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke were pitching Democratic activists for their support – the impeachment debate was far from the surface. Instead, among the hundreds of mostly African American Democrats at the I Will Vote gala fundraiser in Atlanta, the talk was about far more conventional topics than impeaching the president.

For the most part, the attendees who spoke to the Guardian said they wanted to discuss getting out the vote and the issues they saw as the most important: healthcare rights, voting rights and reproductive rights.

1. Sorry, but I don't see what this op

 

is calling a "fierce debate" among Democrats. Don't fall for extreme language from any source.
I support impeachment and hold many other opinions as well and I don't consider my viewpoint to be "fierce" by any means!
