Pro-Impeachment Dems See Mueller Testimony As Last Chance Before Recess

Democrats advocating to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump see Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony this week as their last chance to add gas to the fire before the lengthy summer recess begins.

According to Politico, more moderate Democrats are hoping that Mueller will merely add more details to the corrupt Trump narrative, dinging his reputation and endangering his 2020 standing.

It’s not at all certain that the special counsel will do either. Despite the rigorous preparation on both sides to curate the most damaging lines of questioning, Mueller has stated in no uncertain terms that he will not stray from the confines of his report.

Democrats are planning to emphasize the most damning portions of those findings in the hopes that most Americans who haven’t read the report will react to Trump’s alleged obstruction.

Republicans, meanwhile, are hoping to undermine Mueller’s work and question his motives.
