Democrats’ Impeachment Debate Continues
Over the weekend, prominent Democrats continued their public debate over whether the party should support impeaching President Trump. David Axelrod, a former top advisor to President Obama, said Democrats should not be committing to impeachment when they have no case for it:
Dems should NOT commit to impeachment unless & until there’s a demonstrable case for one.

And now the Democratic candidate for Senate in Texas, Rep. Beto O’Rourke, is saying he has already seen enough to support impeachment.
