US Democrats Weigh Calls for Impeachment
Days after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, Democrats are carefully considering just how vocally — or even whether — to demand impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. So far, Sen. Elizabeth Warren is the only prominent 2020 contender to have done so, while the Democratic chairs of several powerful House committees appear wary of the prospect, but haven’t ruled it out.
What’s behind the debate? Although pushing for impeachment could boost Democratic hopefuls for the presidency, it may also embolden Trump supporters, especially if the effort fails.
