Impeachment impasse

By Leo Pond

Republicans in both the House and the Senate have spoken out against the impeachment inquiry. Republicans in both chambers are doing everything in their power to prevent the impeachment inquiry from making any “groundbreaking” discoveries. These Republicans have interrupted a hearing already, setting it back three hours and causing a security issue because they brought their phones with them. Republicans love their president and they are worried if the inquiry finds any “dirt” on President Trump it will make them look bad.

Democrats are hoping that if the impeachment investigation doesn’t find enough evidence to impeach that it will be enough to damage President Trump’s reputation so he doesn’t get elected in 2020. Donald Trump has responded to this by calling it a “witch hunt.”
