As midterms loom, Dems don’t want to alienate moderate voters with impeachment chatter
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and other Democratic leaders have avoided talking about any plans of impeachment of President Donald Trump. Instead, they’re urging members to wait until the special counsel has concluded its investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign and possible obstruction by the president. (Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call)
It’s not that Democrats would never try to impeach President Donald Trump. It’s that they just don’t want to talk about it — yet.
