Democrats fail to mollify impeachment crowd

Democratic leaders hoping to mollify restive liberals through aggressive oversight of the Trump administration are facing early warning signs from the pro-impeachment crowd that it’s simply not enough.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has signed off on a strategy for the House to hold Attorney General William Barr and others in contempt of Congress. And House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) will hold a series of hearings this month to examine the Mueller report.

But while impeachment supporters are cheering those steps, they are also wary of taking their eyes off of what they see as the ultimate goal: ousting a president whom they deem unfit to be in office.

Contempt “doesn’t move me one way or the other — it’s impeachment that I’m worried about because it’s the president who’s causing harm to the entire country,” said Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), the most vocal impeachment advocate in the House.
