A call for impeachment exposes Democratic divisions

Other 2020 candidates have shied away from calling for Trump’s impeachment and suggested it’s either premature or overly divisive. A staffer for one of the Democratic presidential hopefuls told Yahoo News they thought Warren’s push for impeachment was an effort to grab attention in a crowded field.

“She might think this looks bold, but it just looks desperate. Throw the policy white papers out the window, she’s now just appealing to the lowest common denominator,” the staffer said…

The lack of support for impeachment from House Democratic leadership has led to frustrations within the party.

On Thursday, shortly after Mueller’s report was released, a Democratic Hill staffer who supports impeaching Trump told Yahoo News they were pessimistic the report would have an impact.

“I’ll be shocked if it changes anything,” the staffer said.
