Democrats have been threatening to impeachment President Trump since before he even took office. Winning the election was their plan A, Russian collusion plan B, and impeachment plan C.
Since the President has not committed any minor crimes, misdemeanors, or treason, it’s highly unlikely that any articles of impeachment will carry any weight.
Here’s what Democrats are saying:
“All Americans, regardless of party, agree on the fundamental principle that no one is above the law,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) told MSNBC Friday. “And if President Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, and then [get] special counsel Mueller fired, I believe Congress would begin impeachment proceedings.”
“Congress will not allow the president to so egregiously overstep his authority,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said in a statement.
President Trump responded on Twitter to the latest controversy surrounding Special Counsel Robert Mueller:
I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) released a statement saying she believes the President’s tweet is evidence that he’d consider getting rid of Rosenstein.
Feinstein said, “That’s undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the President’s oath of office.”
It looks like Dems have given up on Russian collusion and have moved on to Rosenstein and Mueller.
