    And they will probably do it anyway.

    You are correct, he is not nearly as unpopular as they want to think he is. But the Dems nominated Hillary, so yes they are dumb enough to push for impeachment proceedings. Heaven help us. It will be eighteen months of chaos and then four more years of Trump.

    Agree. Impeachment simply plays into Trump's hands and will let him run like an outsider again. You can almost hear his stump speeches now
    PLesa excuse the tpyos.

    Richard Burr passed on information to Trump’s people. That’s pretty disappointing. Had more respect for him than his house counterparts like Nunes, and gutless Chris Stewart

    He certainly deserves to be impeached, but they'd be wise not to. Hang on to this information and beat him over the head with come election time. That's the smart play. I understand the hunger for symbolic impeachment, but for the good of the country we need any other than Trump to win in 2020, and that includes any of the 75 declared democratic candidates and loony-tunes Gary Johnson. Hell, Misty Snow, the trans natural food store cashier would be an improvement over Tump.

    Yes, impeach him! We want Mike "Not my Jesus" Pence to be our president.

    It's also come out in the report that Trump's deleted emails and other evidence impeding the investigation. Hardly a bunch of picked on and unfairly maligned angels.

    I wonder what the Grand Jury information that Barr didn't even bother to see if he could be clearance to release says.

    OMG... deleted emails! How many? Like 31,000? Did he use bleach bit on his private email server in the basement of the Drumpf Tower?

    Did the dem party come up with collusion as a scapegoat to Obama’s failure to intervene against Russia’s interference during his presidency?

    Russia never did anything so they didn't need a scapegoat, at least that was the origninal line spout by several folks on here.
    No one, including myself on here has disputed Obama's fecklessness on Russia. But speaking of all that, McConnell refused to make a bipartisan statement about Russian interence.
    What Trump and his cronies did and tried to do were separate, and no those concerns weren't to spare Obama from criticism.

    There’s certainly a lot of evidence that they did, although there was also smoke there so I don’t blame them for playing politics on it. It just looks really bad now and might hurt them next year.

    Trump's Republican primary challenger calls him a 'one man crime wave' after Mueller report

    Former Massachusetts Gov Bill Weld, who is challenging President Donald Trump in the 2020 Republican primary, sounded off after the public release of the final report from the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election....


    "This man is a one-man crime wave," Weld said in a statement. "He instructed senior legal officials, senior national security, senior intelligence officials to lie, he actively sought out and suborned perjury. That is obstruction of justice and the President is fortunate that in substance Bob Mueller gave him a mulligan"

    Weld also echoed Democrats in calling for a public hearing with Mueller to delve deeper into the special counsel's findings.

    "The last thing that Mr. Mueller said in the report was to charge the President you would need evidence of corrupt intent. What would be evidence of corrupt intent?" he said. "Well, if the President tried to limit or stop investigation of him or his family to avoid embarrassment or criminal exposure, that would be massive evidence of criminal intent. Well, that's exactly what the 60 previous pages of the report demonstrated."

    The Republican National Committee is sticking by Trump, choosing not to remain neutral in the GOP presidential primary.

    And when is Andrew McCabe going to be indicted for lying to the Department of Justice about leaking to the Wall Street Journal (I.e., his obstruction of justice)? Of course McCabe’s leaks hurt Hillary not Trump. And the leaks and McCabe’s lies about them are not disputed.
