Since the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s long-awaited report, Democrats and one Republican Congress member, Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), have turned up the dial on impeachment, even though their desire of booting Trump from office may not be in line with most Americans’.
The Republican lawmaker addressed the situation at Tuesday’s weekly press conference.
“They have got a very strong and seems to be growing segment of their caucus who believes that they should move forward regardless of the facts, regardless of the situation,” Cheney said, adding that “many” Democrats have sought impeachment since the 2016 presidential election.
Cheney called the impeachment calls a “shame,” “bad for the nation,” and “bad for the Constitution.”
“Fundamentally, I think, is an irresponsible action with respect to what our duties and responsibilities are as members of this body. To continue down this path of these investigations, which really are based on partisan attacks and on the fact that they do not believe Donald Trump should be president. We have too much hugely important work to do, work the American people elected us to do.”

While their colleagues pursue impeachment calls, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), are avoiding impeachment discussions for now, as IJR Red reported.
Following Mueller’s first and seemingly last public press conference last week, the two Democratic leaders vowed to continue to “investigate and legislate to protect our elections and secure our democracy.” However, they didn’t cry out for impeachment, in stark contrast to other Democrats.
Nonetheless, the president doesn’t seem worried by the “dirty” impeachment calls, as he labeled the Russia investigation a “scam,” as IJR Red reported.
