The New York Times reports;
When House Democratic leaders hastily called a news conference Wednesday to demonstrate their outrage at President Trump’s latest dramatics, they took great pains to show they were not seeking to railroad him out of the White House.
“No one ought to, in my view, rush to embrace the most extraordinary remedy that involves the removal of the president from office,” said Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, the sober-minded senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. He warned that Democrats should not let their actions “be perceived as an effort to nullify the election by other means.”A wounded, hobbled Trump is what they want for now. Trump being pushed from office would mean the anti-Trump, Mike Pence, would restore calmness to the Oval office,
That's the last thing Democrats want.
They want Trump harassed with charges and leaks that peak just before the 2020 presidential election with a severely wounded Trump running for re-election.
His buffoonery, which MSM can highlight on a daily basis, will protect him from impeachment.
MSM would like to have him out as a scalp to hang on the wall and so would the intelligence community but the Democrats, who have much more influence with regard to impeachment proceedings, prefer Trumpian chaos in office,
