Looks like they’re stuck with President Trump until at least January 2021.
According to the Washington Post, which reported the following, no doubt with great sadness:
House Democrats conceded Monday that the possibility of impeachment proceedings against President Trump is over, at least for now — marking a dramatic retreat in the wake of the conclusion by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III that Trump’s campaign did not conspire with Russia in the 2016 election.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and members of her leadership team agreed in a Monday night huddle that the caucus needs to stop talking about collusion with Russia because it was distracting from their legislative agenda, according to three people in the meeting or familiar with the discussion.
Notably, two Democrats in the room who brought up concerns about the nationwide focus on their high-profile probes — Rep. David N. Cicilline (D-R.I.) and House Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairwoman Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) — are from opposite sides of the caucus: one a liberal, the other from a Trump district. Both argued that the House needs to megaphone pocketbook issues that won them the majority.
“Based on Barr’s reporting of the Mueller report . . . there’s a sense that there’s less discussion about impeachment,” Cicilline, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said before the leadership meeting. After the huddle, when asked about his comments, he added: “We need to focus on . . . the promises we made during the campaign.”
Yes, please, let’s just discuss the issues! Green New Deal, socialism, from each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs, etc.
Then Democrats will have to deal with Trump until January 2025.
