House Democrats struggle to break through when it’s all Trump, all the time

The next big legislative item is H.R. 1, as the House majority’s most important bill is known. It is a massive collection of ethics and election security laws, ready for a vote in the next couple of weeks.

But more hearings about the Trump-Russia investigation are coming, and everyone is awaiting the conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation.

Yarmuth believes impeachment hearings should be convened based on Cohen’s allegations that Trump committed crimes since taking office. He said the distraction of the impeachment process could not be much worse than how distracting recent events have already been.

“I don’t know how much different that would be than what’s going on now,” Yarmuth said.
