It’s not clear the House has the votes — or would ever have the votes — to impeach Trump. That’s the key threshold question. If there aren’t 218 votes, there’s no impeachment. But the big-“I” process, which can stop at any time, started a long time ago. Nadler, Schiff, Cummings.

An aspect of Warren’s impeachment call that I didn’t get to in this piece is that it jams Sanders. More info about Russia’s 2016 plot to stop Clinton is just not helpful to him during a Democratic primary, and that puts him in a tougher spot on impeachment https://t.co/BZNrCw2WYH

@nycsouthpaw I thought the most interesting but maybe not surprising thing about volume 1 was the number of ends that died in principals saying “I don’t recall” or “I have no recollection.” It read like Iran/Contra.

Democrats are torn over pushing for impeachment at the risk of over-reach.
