Multiple Democrats are Now Talking Impeachment
For the duration of Robert Mueller’s investigation, democratic leaders have largely remained mum on the topic of impeaching Donald Trump. The party has been content to wait until Mueller and his team release their findings.
According to Natasha Bertrand from the Atlantic, there seems to be a shift in this strategy. The shift is related to a number of factors from Rod Rosenstein’s planned Justice Department Departure to a bombshell report from Buzzfeed.
Donald Trump also tapped William Barr to be his next Attorney General and Barr’s sworn testimony has left some Democrats worried that he will not allow Mueller to share his full findings with Congress.
The Buzzfeed report seems to have been a tipping point for Democrats to begin calling for impeachment. According to the report, Donald Trump instructed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a Trump Tower deal in Moscow.
