  1. Please Democrats impeach Trump it doesn't matter if you have any evidence or not, it doesn't matter that Mueller punted the ball to the House Democrats. Who cares about fixing infrastructure, illegal immigration, trade, the economy, lowering drug prices, prison reform, helping the inner cities through the opportunity zones, etc this is good for the country to impeach a President when you have no reason to other than you hate him. You say he's a Russian agent but you can't produce any evidence even after spying on his Presidential campaign. Why should the Democrats have to operate fairly in a democracy. Trump is such an existential threat to democracy because the Democrats say so. The Democrats are always right, the media never lies.

  2. Dems just want to talk but not impeach. They want to keep an open sore they can scratch daily. Now that the report is out, they need to scratch the daily impeachment headline. They don’t want it to heal or be removed, just want it to fester.
